" Aman Resorts announces DR opening in 2015 Aman Resorts announces its Playa Grande property, a golfer's dream, will be opening before the end of the year. The new Amanera is promoted as the luxury hotel chain's first fully-integrated Aman Golf Course. The Amanera lies alongside the lauded fairways and greens of Playa Grande Golf Course. When it opens, Amanera could be the country's most expensive and exclusive resort. It will feature 25 casitas on an 800 hectares cliff-top property facing the Playa Grande Golf Course that is being renovated by the Rees Jones, son of the late Robert Trent Jones who built the course that has always been described as the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean. The Playa Grande Golf Course boasts 10 holes played directly on ocean cliffs, the most holes on the ocean of any course in the Western Hemisphere. Aman Resorts says the resort has been designed to appear as natural parts of the landscape. All casitas have flat roofs topped with green gardens. The designers have sought to blur the lines that separate the accommodations from the surrounding tropical forest. Each casita will have an ocean view, a large terrace, outdoor seating and lounge areas and high-ceilinged living and sleeping areas. 13 of the 25 casitas will have their own private pools. At the center of the resort, the Casa Grande facility will feature views of the ocean. It is built in a way it appears to 'float' above a three-tiered water feature and offers sweeping views at every turn. The resorts restaurants and shops, cigar bar, open air-bar are located there. The hotel will also feature a Club de Playa on Playa Grande beach, with a children's club, a fitness center and the Aman Spa. http://www.amanresorts.com/amanera.aspx
