The secluded Amanyara resort in Turks & Caicos is a minimalistic space with a zen-like quality. There are dozens of low-hanging structures spread spaciously over the western coast of Providenciales island, which are perfectly woven into the protected marine reserve and parkland. Amanyara aims to enhance and blend in with its local surroundings, rather than conceal them, which is why the resort is made with a neutral color palette, open-space floor plan for easy indoor-outdoor living and natural materials. The six-bedroom, 14,450-sq-ft Amanyara Villa may as well be its own resort: It has direct beach access through a teak walkway, as well as a private pond that meanders throughout the villa’s independent structures. There are multiple dining salas, a personal bar, Pilates studio, black infinity pool and more lounging areas than you can count. When you want to emerge from your private lair, there are three golf carts at your disposal.
