Black Book Luxe Travels: Providenciales, Turks & Caicos
Nov 26, 2020
Escape to a luxury Caribbean hideaway at Amanyara. Derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “peace” and the Arawak word meaning “place”, Amanyara is quite literally a peace-inducing haven located in the north west corner of the island, far from the development of Grace Bay. Atop a dramatic headland, at the edge of a national marine park, and looking out onto 1km of pristine private white beach, the 38 pavilions occupy a coveted, secluded spot among mother nature. Its elegant, modern design blurs the lines between indoors and outdoors, with villa bedrooms encased by glass walls that open out onto reflecting ponds and tropical gardens so you can fall asleep to the sound of nature.
Where to eat?
If you’re on Providenciales, you can’t miss the 12 miles of sweeping Grace Bay Beach, the most famous of the island’s beaches. The area is densely populated with grand luxury resorts, and hence, a wide variety of cuisines and exquisite restaurants to try. For the finest of dining experiences, Seven at Seven Stars Resort, is modern island cuisine with an Italian influence. And if you’re a bit of a wine connoisseur, their Tasting Room is a must-do. Tuck into beautiful and surprising dishes surrounded by walls lined with premium wines. Or for a truly unique take on traditional French cuisine, fusing a wide range of world cuisines, head to Provence by Eric. Perhaps one of the most sophisticated of the island’s restaurants, it features an open kitchen and bar area and elegant, modern design accents. Finally, for the ultimate, romantic, candle-lit dinner, (and even the dream location for “popping the question”), Grace’s Cottage is a charming, redesigned cottage located among beautiful landscapes.
Thanks to Providenciales International Airport, getting there couldn’t be easier with regular, scheduled international flights.
