AMANYARA, Turks & Caicos
Resting on a rocky bluff above a magnificent private beach, Amanyara is a remote coastal retreat on the northwest coast of Providenciales. A picture-perfect Caribbean escape with all-encompassing ocean views, the resort is made up of 38 timber-shingled pavilions and 20 villas tucked along the coast.
Ideal for destination weddings, honeymoons and group retreats, the resort offers multiple venues both indoors and out. The poolside sunset sala overlooking the sea provides an idyllic venue to say vows, then dance until dawn with a beach reception and fireworks over the ocean. During the day guests can enjoy once in a lifetime experiences such as tagging endangered sea turtles, fishing for the elusive bonefish and diving in the world-renowned reefs of the nearby marine national park.
The former guesthouse of King Norodom Sihanouk, Amansara is an intimate resort of just 24 suites on the outskirts of Siem Reap. Situated 10 minutes from the temples of Angkor Wat, the resort is ideally placed for exploration of the ancient temples, and enjoys exclusive access to a number of sites not usually open to the public.
After-dark dinners at the 10th-century temple of Prasat Kravan can be arranged, lit only with the glow of 1,000 candles. These ethereal evenings include live music and entertainment in the form of traditional dancing and shadow puppetry. Amansara’s Khmer Village House is another authentic venue ideal for secluded brunches or romantic private dining. A traditional stilted home, it is set in a lush garden overlooking Sras Srang Reservoir.
Mount Agung provides a dramatic backdrop for Amankila, a secluded beachfront resort overlooking the Lombok Strait in East Bali. The 33 free-standing suites offer exceptional sea views from their hillside settings, and are connected to the resort’s restaurants and other facilities by raised walkways.
Ideal for private dining or sunset wedding ceremonies, a number of bales line the resort’s private beach.

Offering panoramic views across the Lombok Strait, the resort’s signature three-tiered infinity pool serves as a focal point for larger gatherings, set into the cliff edge, the green tiled pools flow one into the other down a stepped gradient, mimicking the area’s terraced rice fields making it the perfect host for candlelit drinks.
