Family Holidays in the Caribbean - Amanyara Resort, Turks & Caicos Islands

When travelling with children we know that the main concern for any parent is, will there be enough for them to do? It can be difficult striking the right balance between a luxurious and relaxing break for you, and something fun and interesting for the kids!

The Amanyara resort is a beautifully private and exclusive resort in the Turks and Caicos islands, which lie in the Northern Corner of the Caribbean Sea in the British West Indies. On first glance you would not perhaps think of Amanyara to be a particularly ‘child friendly’ resort, yet it is in fact a wonderful place for families and children are indeed made to feel very welcome. There are also endless opportunities for children not only to play and have fun, but to learn and explore at the fabulous Amanyara’s Nature Discovery Centre.

Designed to help guests learn more about nature and wildlife on the island, and the incredible marine life offshore. The centre provides activities for children and adults alike. Amanyara is surrounded by a Marine National Park and Nature reserve, and they strive to provide an authentic experience of the island’s unique environment. From endangered Hawksbill and Green turtles, to Humpback whales, there is a range of diverse and fascinating wildlife to be discovered.

There are daily activities and a full time naturalist on hand to answer questions and engage with guests. For children, there is a daily programme which has been co-created by their own naturalist and teachers from the American Museum of Natural History’s Science and Nature department. These include exploration safaris, nature-themed presentations, beach walks, scavenger hunts and turtle conservation, all focused on learning more about the islands’ indigenous creatures with a huge dose of fun! There are also plenty of activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing and sailing all with expert tuition for both adults and children to enjoy.

For families staying at Amayara the two bedroom Pool Pavilion Suites offer luxurious and comfortable surroundings. There is a generous master suite, a smaller room for children, a large living/dining room and a private fitness room with cardio and weight equipment – all under one roof. The swimming pool is fringed by an expansive terrace and lawns.

Of cause whilst the children are off having fun, mums and dads can enjoy the wonderful spa and wellness centre offering a range of tempting treatments along with Pilates and yoga sessions which can be enjoyed overlooking a large reflection pond and lush vegetation, and the Providenciales Golf Club is a 35-minute drive from Amanyara and is rated amongst the top 10 courses in the Caribbean.
