Na­ture’s riches abound in new Aman re­sort

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Destination Mexico - www.aman.com

A new sea­side hide­away has been un­veiled on the Do­mini­can Repub­lic’s Playa Grande, where a long stretch of golden sand meets lush jun­gle – 800 hectares of it, in fact. Part of the world­wide Aman col­lec­tion, Aman­era’s one- and two-bed­room ca­sitas fea­ture raw, or­ganic design that merges seam­lessly with the sur­round­ing jun­gle. Their flat, bio­di­verse roofs have been cul­ti­vated into green gar­dens, cool­ing down the liv­ing spa­ces be­low. The ca­sitas cap­ture the re­laxed vibe of the Caribbean and make the most of the ex­tra­or­di­nary ocean views from the re­sort’s lofty po­si­tion 20 me­tres above the sea. Over­hang­ing eaves shade ex­pan­sive ter­races with out­door din­ing and loung­ing ar­eas, and some have pri­vate swim­ming pools. The Restau­rant spe­cialises in fresh, or­ganic dishes, or guests can eat at the beach­side Club de Playa or at the golf course Club­house. Kayak or kitesurf in front of a dra­matic moun­tain­ous back­ground or, for those in the mood for pam­per­ing, book into Aman­era’s spa – its ther­a­pies are in­spired by the shamanic heal­ing tra­di­tions of the Do­mini­can Repub­lic.
