|Playa Grande, Dominican Republic|
Several media outlets are reporting that Aman Resorts has announced the launch of its second Caribbean resort, Amanera, scheduled to debut in the Dominican Republic during the fourth quarter of 2015.
According to the Caribbean Journal, overlooking Playa Grande beach on 2,000 acres that stretch across nearly seven miles of Hispaniola’s north coast, the resort will become the first “golf-integrated” Aman, and will adjoin Playa Grande Golf Course.
According to the Caribbean Journal report, one-bedroom casitas enjoy ocean views, outdoor seating and lounging areas, and high-ceilinged living and sleeping areas. Every casita is accessed through a private garden and has its own 32-foot swimming pool.
Two-bedroom Bay View casitas will offer panoramic views of Playa Grande; a 65-foot infinity pool; and glass-walled living and dining rooms that blur the transition between inside and out.
The resort will also include several restaurants, a library, cigar bar, kids’ club, fitness center, tennis courts and Club de Playa, a casual beach club on Playa Grande. The Aman Spa will offer therapies that incorporate Aman’s chemical-free products and traditional shamanic healing techniques, according to the report.
