Design + Architecture

Design Hotels 2008

by Danielle Pergament


The scheme: Nature as design

The scene: Amanyara, Turks & Caicos

When the beach is as gorgeous as the Northwest Point on the island of Providenciales in the archipelago of Turks & Caicos, you could basically stick two wooden beams in the sand and call it a resort. Thankfully, Amanyara, the newest feather in Amanresorts' cap, did a little more than that. Amanyara is one of those hotels in which you can never really tell if you're inside or out, which is precisely the point. Features include high vaulted ceilings, oversize beds, and candlelit tabletops set on the floor—and that's all al fresco. Inside the timber-shingled pavilions, you'll find the comforts of the home you wish you had: rain showers, flat-screen TVs, king-size beds, private sundecks with daybeds and oversize cushions, and all the other details that make you feel like royalty. And just outside is the reason you came in the first place—Malcolm's Beach, all 3,000 gloriously secluded feet of it, proving Mother Nature is a pretty good landscape architect herself.
