Heralding a new era for hospitality in one of the world’s greatest cities, Aman’s newest island destination is now open. The much-anticipated Aman New York brings the peace promised by Aman’s Sanskrit-derived name and the palpable tranquillity of its Asian roots to the heart of Manhattan.
A defining moment for the brand under the leadership of Aman’s Chairman and CEO, Vlad Doronin, the unveiling of Aman New York marks the Crown Building’s transformation into an unmatched city hotel, exemplifying Aman’s inimitable lifestyle.
The arrival experience sets the tone for an aesthetic journey which complements the powerful statement of the building’s gilded splendour.
He said: “The opening of Aman New York is a milestone moment in the evolution and growth of the Aman brand, cementing our strategy to bring the coveted Aman lifestyle to the world’s greatest urban locations. The hotel, Aman Club and Aman Branded Residencesbring an entirely new proposition to Manhattan. Generous amenities and the unparalleled Aman service deliver a guest experience like no other, as we continue to push boundaries and set new standards in luxury hospitality.”
Each unique residence is serviced by Aman and invites its owner to become permanently immersed in the peerless Aman lifestyle in an unmatched address.
Situated in the historic Crown Building, Aman New York is a temple of design, created in partnership with long-time Aman collaborator Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston Architects. The arrival experience sets the tone for an aesthetic journey which complements the powerful statement of the building’s gilded splendour.
The double-height atrium with multilayers of textured ceiling and wall panels in muted tones hints at the brand’s Asian heritage while celebrating the unceasing heartbeat of Manhattan.
The crowning glory of Aman New York is its broad selection of buzzy social venues. Headlining these areas is its verdant 14th-floor wraparound Garden Terrace offering year-round dining, a rarity in one of the most densely populated cities in the world. The Garden Terrace is flanked with water features adding a soft and soothing touch, and fire pits creating a sense of drama and energy.
Two signature restaurants include Arva, Aman’s Italian dining concept which celebrates locally sourced seasonal ingredients, and Nama, the brand’s Washoku Japanese restaurant with an intimate Omakase bar upholding the brand’s duality of East meets West. Furthermore, the Jazz Club features daily live performances establishing the hotel as a destination unto itself, interwoven into the fabric of the city.
