Approaching its fourth decade, and embracing 31 resorts, hotels, residences and expeditions in 20 destinations, Aman is a collection of retreats providing exclusive hideaways.Amanpuri which inaugurated in 1988, remains the brand’s flagship, but the unveiling of Aman Tokyo in 2014 marked a milestone for the group, with its ability to immediately transport guests away from the frenetic pace of the city to the experience of being ensconced in an Aman. Recent additions to the collection include Amanera (Dominican Republic), Amandayan (China), custom-built Phinisi cruiser, Amandira (Indonesia), Amanemu (Japan), and Amanyangyun the brand’s most ambitious project to date, which opens in autumn 2017 on the outskirts of Shanghai.Looking ahead, the gentle evolution of Aman will continue, and under the leadership of Chairman, Vladislav Doronin, his executive team are committed to strengthening and safeguarding the iconic brand. A robust development strategy is in place, and having firmly established itself in Asia, Aman is now focusing on further expanding the collection within the Western Hemisphere. Destinations situated in close proximity to existing Amans are also a focus, thereby lending themselves to a curated Aman journey. Eleven new hotels and resorts, each with a residential component, were signed in 2016 and are in development, and as such, will see South America introduced as a destination for the first time with further resorts in South East Asia, the USA and Europe, and a continued journey in Japan.
