Along with its luxurious accommodations and idyllic location set within an 18,000-acre nature reserve, Amanyara in Turks and Caicos is a family's luxurious paradise with its children's program - SEEK (Science Explorers and Environmental Keepers), in partnership with the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Miami. Launched in 2021, the SEEK camps (developed exclusively for Amanyara) aim to cultivate enthusiasm for the environment and passion for conservation amongst the next generation as they learn to take care of our planet. Unlike a typical kids' club, children (ages 5-10) as well as pre-teens and teens (ages 11-14) have direct access to the skilled museum educators and scientists. While young guests are learning and having fun at the SEEK camps, love birds can have their alone time at the resort's extensive Aman Spa, on the beach and during romantic cove dinners.

Families will enjoy a restful and spacious stay in Amanyara Villas. Looking out at the vivid turquoise waters of North West Point Marine National Park, or the verdant greenery of the property’s gardens and forest, Amanyara’s 20 two to six-bedroom Villas offer consummate privacy and space on the secluded shores of Turks and Caicos. With generously proportioned living areas, each villa is set around a black infinity pool and hardwood deck that define each of the villas’ extensive grounds, with several featuring ocean views and others offering direct beach access. Aman’s unwavering attention to detail and intuitive service is brought to each villa, with the addition of a dedicated personal service; all are serviced by villa hosts, and the three-to-six-bedroom villas are also serviced by personal chefs.
