Sculpted by winds, framed by mountainous jungles and poised atop 60-foot cliffs towering over what is arguably the island’s most beautiful beach—prized for its broad, golden sands and clear, azure seas—Playa Grande is an alluring mix of sky, earth and water.More than a resort, Playa Grande is a vast kingdom of more than 2,000 acres—over 400 of which will remain a natural rainforest preserve, forever pure. Dominated by its eponymous mile-long beach, perceived as one of the Caribbean’s finest, and followed by the more secluded Playa Preciosa, Playa Grande is a virtually untouched land heightened by soft, verdant mountains and lush jungle with centuries-old trees and royal palms. The surrounding region is pristine and unpopulated, with underground springs supplying abundant fresh water.To nature’s majesty, Playa Grande added the signature of Robert Trent Jones, Sr., who became famously infatuated with the property in 1992, dedicating his time and expertise to the creation of one of the Caribbean’s foremost golf experiences.
Playa Grande Was Love At First Sight For Amanresorts Founder Adrian Zecha. Here, He Envisioned The Next Generation Of Aman – A Very Limited, Exclusive And Private Island Paradise.
As the first Amanresort on the island, and the first-ever to pair the Aman experience with golf, Playa Grande is destined to become the holiday hub of America’s East Coast. Infused with the Aman spirit, it’s an exotic yet accessible destination to gather with friends and family, where you’ll share a moveable feast that excites, nourishes and inspires.
Stunning ocean, golf and mountain views can be enjoyed from every turn. Chic daybeds fringe the water’s edge overlooking golf fairways and seas, while the 30 guest Pavilions are nestled in a sublime location overlooking crescent-shaped Playa Grande Beach.
Beautifully handcrafted living spaces echo the warmth of the island in a chic aesthetic ripe with detail. Adding grace to your personal haven are natural stones from local quarries, rich woods from South America, indigenous tiles and Dominican art and artifacts. In keeping with Aman’s commitment to building environmentally friendly resorts, flat roofs cultivate green gardens, cooling living spaces and further blurring the line between dwelling and jungle.
Tucked away within their own private enclave, these seven Aman Founder Villas are a haven-by-the-sea, large compounds secluded within the Golf Course yet so close to the Resort, all framed by lush mountains and with spectacular golf and ocean views.
