A long-awaited Aman hotel will finally be arriving in the heart of Manhattan, located on the corner of 5th and 57th. In addition to the 83 perfectly curated rooms (with their own on-suite fireplaces), the Aman New York will also open with 22 full-service residences. Guests will be privy to the hotel’s luxury amenities, which include their three restaurants, a jazz club, and, arguably the best part, the notorious Aman Spa! The spa itself will span three stories, its centerpiece being the dramatic 60-foot indoor swimming pool, surrounded by fire pits and day beds. It’s the perfect city sanctuary! When it comes to the dining experience, no detail is left to chance. There will be two signature, on-site restaurants: Arva, the lively and authentic Italian restaurant, and Nama, Aman’s interpretation of Japan’s washoku dining tradition. They also have a separate WINE BAR (sign me up!).
Further down the Pacific coastline of Mexico past Puerto Vallarta sits the newest addition to the Four Seasons Resort’s collection. The Four Seasons Tamarindo is perched up on the cliffside, nestled amongst the lush forest overlooking the untouched coastline. What sets this location apart from its counterparts is that it sits on the private peninsula of a natural reserve spanning 3,000 acres. With six kilometers of private coastline, three swimmable beaches, and various hidden snorkeling coves, this is the seclusion and nature-centered relaxation you’ve been dreaming of! Focus on self-care at their organic spa, alternating between the hot and cold plunge pools, followed by nature hikes and a restful day at the beach with family. There is also a championship golf course onsite!
Set in the untouched enclaves of Buahan, Bali, this resort offers the unique experience of a hotel with no walls and no doors! This open concept design is meant to put guests in communion with the nature that surrounds them. There are 16 unique and secluded villas designed to blend into the jungle, each boasting its own pool and mountain views. By day, hike the surrounding mountains like Mount Batur (with volcano views), or immerse yourself in one of the resort’s signature cultural experiences. By night, enjoy traditional Balinese cuisine followed by a soak in your jungle hot tub! Their spa treatments use the ancient healing wisdom of the island, implementing unique herbs and techniques to provide guests with the ultimate wellness experience.
Janu is a new hotel concept by the Aman group with a location in Tokyo opening in 2022! The hotel is rooted in the Aman values of impeccable design and uncompromised service while putting an extra emphasis on wellbeing and community. Janu is on the gorgeous coastline of the Adriatic Sea and is set to open in time for summer 2022. Montenegro is somewhat of a hidden gem, with pristine turquoise waters, untouched natural landscape, numerous hiking trails, the Bay of Kotor, and, of course, flavorful sea-inspired cuisine. Enjoy the European summer sun (and all of the activities that come along with it), followed by rejuvenation at the world-class Janu spa. What could be better??
