Soul Escape: Amanera, Cabrera, Dominican Rep.

Design, Travel & City Guide

Aman has just welcomed its 29th property to the fold, this time to the Green Coast of the Dominican Republic, a hitherto untouched stretch of land on the northern shore.  

Artfully scattered over 60 foot cliffs, which overlook Playa Grande beach, Amanera respectfully slots into its lush environs, which includes jungles, waterfalls and the spectacular Cordillera Septentrional mountain range.

Combining the Sanskrit word for peace: aman, with the Taino word for water: neara, the property’s moniker aptly summaries John Heah’s design concept, where water is present from every angle.

Ensconced in any one of the 25 casitas, guests can expect to encounter organic interiors which incorporate stone from local quarries, indigenous handmade Aguayo tiles and Dominican art and artifacts, while floor-to-ceiling windows give way to views of landscaped private gardens.

The resort is the first golf-integrated Aman, with an 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones and  his son, Rees Jones to fit within the new Amanera landcape.  Offering therapies based on traditional energy-based shamanic healing, Amanera’s luxe relaxation hub soothes and subdues in typical Aman fashion.
