For an unforgettable luxury experience set above the celebrated golden sands of Playa Grande, look no further than Amanera, a Forbes Four-Star retreat. From unbeatable water sports to stunning back-to-nature experiences, this Dominican Republic oasis has something for everyone.

The golf course has been redesigned by Rees Jones - son of renowned architect Robert Trent Jones - and it's arguably the best in the Caribbean, with more coastal exposure than any other in the Western Hemisphere. However, you don't even have to be a golfer to enjoy your stay here: Amanera boasts a large private beach and mountain with idyllic hiking trails, all within its 2,000-acre property.

Accommodations come in the form of 25 beautiful casitas designed by London's Heah & Co., offering private pools and outdoor showers that evoke Bali vibes. Casa Grande is also home to an architectural pool that curves gracefully around the hillside.

No matter what brings you here, Amanera promises beauty, privacy, and wonder at every turn, thanks to the friendly and well-trained staff that take care of your every need.


Amanera is a luxurious Dominican Republic resort known as the "Pebble Beach of the Caribbean" due to its world-class golf course. With ten coastal holes and an unforgettable five-hole cliff-top finale, it's no wonder why this destination is at the top of many travelers' bucket lists! Across the road from the main resort sits Amanera's own mountain, with guided hikes leading to an open-air thatched lean-to and a lavish picnic lunch offering spectacular views of bright blue Caribbean waters below.

The resort also offers its guests plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a large selection of amenities, from oversized restaurants and bars an infinity pool and spacious beach areas. Activities offered include yoga classes provided by trainers, deep sea fishing expeditions, and kite surfing tours offsite—or for those looking for more relaxing pursuits—rum distillery tours are also available!
