With a strong Asia portfolio in place, London-based Aman is now focusing on further expanding the collection in the Western Hemisphere. The company is focused on destinations close to existing Aman properties. 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 U.S. and Europe, and continued expansion in Japan.
“Our strategy continues to place emphasis on seeking out new and outstanding destinations, as well as a continued commitment to curate resorts of architectural distinction by commissioning new and up-and-coming architects,” Aman Chairman Vladislav Doronin said in a statement. ”The continued integration of Aman Wellness, as well as the recent introduction of Nama, a new culinary concept which celebrates the tradition of Japanese cuisine, known as washoku, are both natural progressions for our brand.”
Recent additions to the collection include Amanera (Dominican Republic), Amandayan (China), custom-built Phinisi cruiser, Amandira (Indonesia), Amanemu (Japan), and Amanyangyun, which is scheduled to open in late 2017 just outside of Downtown Shanghai.
