Two-bedroom casas and 24 stand­alone casitas stand at the top of 60-foot cliffs at the edge of the Playa Grande. They are backed by a Trent Jones golf course with 10 ocean-front holes! Beyond that lie 2,000 acres of Caribbean jungle, bordering the golden beach and jewel-blue waters. The casitas’ bio-roofing and private gardens blend right into the verdure, each 32-foot swimming pool mimics the big water while the terraces showcase the ocean view. Cited on the north­ern coast of the Dominican Republic, Amanresorts’ latest, Amanera opens on November 23rd.

There do seem to be plenty of activi­ties on offer, to offset the sheer luxu­riousness. Horseback riding on the beach; deep-sea fishing and kite surf­ing; merengue dancing. At the Beach Club are hammocks, drinks—and free snorkelling gear, kayaks, surf­boards and paddleboards for younger ’uns. And, of course, feasting, at the restaurant set atop a three-tier water feature, in the Casa Grande. The curved main infinity pool cascades down to meet it. Somewhere there is a bar-lounge and a cigar bar.

It is rumoured starting rates are $1,400 for the casitas; for more details, enquire at
