Aman Resorts may have originated in Asia, but the company’s commitment to creating exclusive escapes has led to a successful expansion across the globe. The distinctly stylish brand showcases stunning examples of rural and urban retreats, with an emphasis on their ‘sense of place’ within a destination. Often located within unique heritage buildings and naturally beautiful surroundings, each resort fosters close relationships with their local community – offering fascinating cultural insights and highly acclaimed spa services.
Originating on a coconut plantation in Phuket, Aman properties were originally concentrated in Asia but now span twenty countries including the USA, Italy, Turkey and Morocco. Aman Resorts use classic, minimalist designs to create oases of calm, understated luxury. Each resort is small and most often made up of private villas with pools, gardens and living areas to give a sense of belonging and exclusivity. With typically four staff to every guest, Aman Resorts pride themselves on their attentive yet unobtrusive service, with their indulgent spas forming an intrinsic part of any stay.
The décor is heavily influenced by natural materials and local cultures, the organic design blending harmoniously with the natural setting. This reflects their eco-conscious outlook and commitment to conserve and respect the natural environment whilst providing all the facilities and luxuries a modern traveller expects.
Whether enjoying rustic cuisine prepared by your own chef, relaxing on your private sundeck or taking yoga sessions, guests can enjoy absolute tranquillity and stunning scenery in whichever destination they choose. The brand’s loyal followers are affectionately known as ‘Amanjunkies’ and these most discerning of guests certainly enjoy the finer things in life. Fortunately, with such cultural gems as Amantaka, Amansara, Amanoi and Amanpuri, guests can experience some of the best Indo-China has to offer. Similarly, guests to Indonesia can experience the spiritual attractions of Amanusa, Amanwana, Amankila, Amandari and Amanjiwo within one exceptional journey. For those with a keen sense of style, seeking soft adventure and a little culture, Aman offers luxury with a sense of place and conscience.
