Excellent hotel. Close to Atlantic Ocean. Great rooms and fantastic service. Awesome vibe.

Amanera is situated on 2,000 acres stretching across nearly seven miles of continuous Atlantic seacoast on Hispaniola's northern shore. Amanera is the first golf-integrated Aman, situated alongside the undulating fairways and challenging greens of the Playa Grande Golf Course, with the highest number of ocean side holes in the Western hemisphere.

Each of the 25 one-bedroom Casitas enjoys unobstructed ocean vistas from an expansive terrace, outdoor seating and lounging areas, and through floor-to-ceiling windows from the spacious, high-ceilinged living and sleeping areas. Every Casita is accessed via a winding pathway through a private garden and 13 Casitas feature their own 10-meter private swimming pools.

Set above a three-tiered water feature with expansive views, the restaurant makes use of fresh local ingredients. A tranquil sanctuary on two floors, Aman Spa's eight treatment rooms are complemented by a watsu pool, gym and more.
