Aman, Tokyo

Following these unprecedented times, and as we begin a phased reopening of our resorts, we look to the future with optimism and gratitude for all we have learned and how we can evolve. Taking all appropriate steps in line with guidelines from the World Health Organisation and government authorities according to each location, Aman is poised to welcome guests who, when the time is right, will return to our serene hideaways which have been adapted in practice, but unchanged in spirit. 

Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of building a collection of intimate retreats – each with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. The first, Amanpuri (meaning place of peace) in Phuket, Thailand, established the concept, and since then Aman has grown to encompass 32 unique hotels and resorts in 20 inspiring destinations across the world, with a further eight coming soon, taking the brand to 40 resorts in 22 countries.

Amankila Resort

Earth’s remotest destinations are often its most beautiful, and it is in these sacred spaces that Aman shaped its retreats as culturally integrated sanctuaries not just for guests, but for staff and neighbouring communities. From the lofty peaks of Bhutan to the legendary reefs of Indonesia’s Flores Sea, Aman’s peaceful sanctuaries are far removed from daily life, providing the seclusion, privacy and wellbeing for which the brand is revered.   

When reassessing travel in a post-COVID-19 world, it is important to go back to Aman’s roots as the pioneer in this ultra-luxury and niche segment of hideaway resorts. In numerous ways, the generosity of space and efforts to slow down time, have always been firmly ingrained in Aman’s DNA, from the architecture and design of standalone pavilions with private pools, to the low room count and subtle service which now makes the brand a blueprint for the future of travel.

In navigating this new world, we will continue to place our guests and staff at the centre of everything that we do and feel safe in the knowledge that guests will find their sanctuary, a sense of calm and familiarity in our ‘places of peace’. That is the enduring spirit of Aman. 

As we prepare to begin a phased reopening, much may feel different but what remains unchanged is the DNA of Aman. The name, meaning ‘places of peace’, takes on a profound significance as we embark on this next chapter. This may be a time for personal reflection. Or a time for thrilling adventure. Taking all appropriate steps in line with guidelines from the World Health Organisation and government authorities according to each location, Aman is poised to welcome guests who, when the time is right, will return to our places of peace to find the sanctuaries we are renowned for – adapted in practice, but unchanged in spirit.

Amanpuri

Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of building a collection of intimate retreats with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. The first, Amanpuri (place of peace) in Phuket, Thailand, introduced the concept and, since then, Aman has grown to encompass 32 exquisitely serene hotels and resorts in 20 destinations across the world, with a further nine under construction.

The next Aman to open will be Aman New York (2020). The introduction of Aman Skincare in 2018 continued the holistic journey beyond the perimeters of Aman’s havens. Offering a soothing journey to a place of beautifully scented repose and respite, Aman Skincare represents the spirit of Aman in a bottle.

In 2020, Aman welcomed a new hotel brand, Janu – meaning ‘soul’ in Sanskrit. Janu offers a unique take on hospitality where genuine human interaction, playful expression and social wellness are at the core of the experience. Janu aims to bring balance to the head and heart and rekindle the soul. Janu launches with three forthcoming hotels which are already under construction: Montenegro (2022), Al Ula in Saudi Arabia (2022) and Tokyo (2022), as well as a robust pipeline of future hotels. Janu Montenegro will be the first hotel to incorporate the brands serviced residence concept, enabling guests to wholly embrace the Janu lifestyle.
