Aman Resorts opens new Amanera hotel in the Dominican Republic today

Aman Resorts will be opening its first hotel in the Dominican Republic today, ahead of the previously estimated date of December and thus instantly adding the Caribbean country to its exclusive luxury collection of 29 resorts in destinations around the globe.

The new Amanera hotel is located in Playa Grande, on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, set between a mile-long white sand beach and the tropical emerald mountain forests.

The luxury resort offers the finest of island-living accommodation in the form of 25 oceanfront free-standing casitas that have all been designed with natural materials to blend into the natural surroundings. They each boast sweeping ocean views, spacious terraces, outdoor seating and lounge areas, and living and sleeping areas. The "casitas" will be accessed via winding pathways through private gardens, and 13 of them will boast 32-foot private swimming pools.

Amanera is also set along the oceanfront Robert Trent Jones–designed Playa Grande Golf Course within 2,000 acres of cliff-top land, and it will be a "golf-integrated” resort.

At the new upscale retreat guests can look forward to enjoying a variety of upscale facilities including an Aman Spa split over two floors with a Wasu pool, a fitness centre, children’s club, and Club de Playa on Playa Grande beach.

The Casa Grande facility is at the centre of the luxury resort, offering stunning views of the ocean, the golf course and the lush jungle. There is also an open-air bar and lounge, a library, a cigar bar and a gourmet restaurant.

Aman Resorts International is a luxury hotel group that owns five-star hotels and resorts in more than 20 countries around the world, including China, Vietnam, France, Italy, Greece, the United States, India, and Sri Lanka.

The new Amanera hotel marks a shift toward the West for the brand, according to Olivier Jolivet, the CEO of Aman. Aman operates resorts in Utah and Wyoming in America, and Jolivet added that it plans more properties in the region, saying:

"We’d like to be in another remote place in the U.S. that has not been on the map for high-net-worth individuals."

The Dominican Republic is a nation that occupies the eastern two thirds of the tropical island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean Sea.
The country is the second largest Caribbean nation and boasts beautiful landscapes including pristine white sand palm infringed beaches, sparkling azure ocean waters that perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling, rolling green hills. Holidaymakers can enjoy an array of activities including water sports, treks through lush tropical rainforests, and excursions to historical sites and towns.
