Áman announces the launch of Amanera, scheduled to debut in the Dominican Republic during the fourth quarter of 2015. On a clifftop overlooking the crescent-shaped Playa Grande beach, Amanera is surrounded by verdant jungle and framed by the island’s dramatic Cordillera Septentrional mountain range. The resort will become the first golf-integrated Áman, sited alongside the undulating fairways and challenging greens of the lauded Playa Grande Golf Course.
The world-class Playa Grande Golf Course was originally designed by celebrated architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. His son, Rees Jones, an acclaimed designer in his own right and known as the Open Doctor, for his role in sprucing up many recent U.S Open venues, has gloriously revived his father’s legacy with a full renovation of the course. With 10 holes playing directly on ocean cliffs, it stands as the course with the most holes on the ocean in the Western hemisphere. This 7,085-yard course stretches along the coastline and the multiple bays formed by rugged cliffs make each hole – and its views – unique. The magnificent canvas of towering cliffs, panoramic mountain-to-sea views and windswept plateaus next to the undulating coastline, will soon be joined by a new man Clubhouse. The Clubhouse will include a restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as the course’s ‘19th’ hole for post-golf refreshments. Other facilities will include a pro shop, fitness center, tennis courts and an Áman Spa.
Vladislav Doronin, Chairman of the Board of Áman, said, “The launch of Amanera is a clear illustration of brand progression and represents a number of firsts for Áman; not only is this our first fully-integrated golf resort, but it is one that unusually presents ocean vistas from every hole. This, our first foray into the Dominican Republic, will provide our guests with access, the Áman way, to yet another unique location.”
The Dominican Republic is an idyllic destination for golfers; its great climate and abundance of coastline are perfect for days out on the course.
