Whether celebrating a milestone birthday, an anniversary or a family reunion, Amanera is the perfect venue for an utterly original, customised event. Personalised service ensures a seamless, stress-free experience, while the range of activities – both on land and sea – and excursions to sites of cultural and natural interest keeps all ages engaged and entertained.
Ideal for multi-day celebrations, Amanera offers a host of venues with both indoor and alfresco settings. A buyout of the resort promises your own private coastal paradise, with every detail and meticulous execution is our priority.
Offering sweeping views at every turn, the resort’s striking main pavilion is an architectural masterpiece that seemingly floats above a three-tiered cascading water feature. As well as a lofty open-air Lounge Bar, an intimate Cigar Lounge and a Library, it houses Amanera’s signature restaurant with its expansive indoor and outdoor dining areas and uninterrupted views of the mile-long, golden stretch of Playa Grande Beach. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure expansive views from indoors, while beyond the restaurant and its terrace lies the curved swimming pool fringed with daybeds. An exceptional setting for a ceremony or reception, with possibly the most photogenic backdrop in all of the Caribbean.
Framed by coconut palms and lush foliage, Amanera’s Beach Club is set on the golden sands of Playa Grande Beach with expansive decks and lounging areas providing mesmerising views of the sparkling ocean. Offering elegant feet-in-the-sand dining and an authentic pizza oven, the Beach Club is the ideal venue for champagne breakfasts, long lazy lunches and festive beach barbecues with bonfires and torches adding to the romance. With space and atmosphere to spare, this venue is the perfect spot for a large reception or beach party, perhaps after a sunset ceremony by the water’s edge.
Bay View Casa
This magnificent two-bedroom villa is perched in its own private garden on the very edge of the cliffs, claiming completely unobstructed views of Playa Grande Beach and the ocean from its expansive living areas, outdoor terrace and private infinity swimming pool. The ideal venue for an intimate ceremony or reception, it also makes a stunning setting for a sunset cocktail party or a rehearsal dinner prior to the big day.
The Lawn at Hole 14
Originally designed by golf legend Robert Trent Jones Sr., the Playa Grande Golf & Ocean Club course was recently refreshed by his son, Rees Jones, and still boasts the most oceanfront holes of any 18-hole course in the western hemisphere. The 14th might well be its most spectacular, with a rolling emerald green fairway ending in a verdant clifftop lawn beside a regal almond tree. A special natural setting in which to say one’s vows, this beautiful site overlooking the sea can witness large open-air ceremonies, parties and receptions, as well as smaller gatherings.
A lofty setting for a memorable champagne toast, a private dinner or a cosy pre- or post-celebration drink, the Lounge Bar offers spectacular views of Playa Grande Beach and the ocean from the second floor of Amanera’s main pavilion.
