K Take one part blue skies, add a spectacular beach and a couple of swaying palm trees and you have a perfect setting for a honeymoon island getaway that’s full of solitude and romance. A sarah muñoz 66 june 2012 amanyara, turks & caicos Wide open to the sun and the breezes at play in the island of Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos islands, Amanyara takes full advantage of its location by Northwest Point Marine National Park, away from the more developed part of the island. Serenity is a major player here, with ponds and open structures providing an Asian-like feel to the place. Newlyweds have quite a few things to check off their list here. The waters off Amanyara are very clear, ideal for snorkeling and kayaking. The marine park is well known for its amazing wall and reef diving, so clients who dive—or those who get certified during their stay—will be dazzled by abundant marine life. Couples might run into a cooking demo with a rum or wine pairing or decide to show up for a complimentary morning yoga session at the spa. A summer stay at Amanyara also comes with lots of possibilities for adventure; honeymooners can cruise to West Caicos for cliff-jumping and trekking, or hop on a helicopter to take in the rugged beauty and many hidden spots of the Caicos Islands from above. The Romance & Relaxation at Amanyara package includes a 4-night stay, all meals, a private tennis lesson for two, a Spa Signature Journey for two and a private dinner served by candlelight in an oceanfront cove. Rates for this offer start at $7,860 for a Pavilion stay. The pavilions, situated by the ponds, ocean or pools, combine elegant simplicity with the latest in creature comforts, with large bedroom-living room areas and three terraces letting the outdoors in.
