With details yet to emerge, Aman is reporting that it has signed and is developing 11 new hotels, each with a residential component. The expansion will add South America as an Aman destination for the first time with further resorts in Southeast Asia, the United States, Japan and Europe.
“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,” said Aman Chairman Vladislav Doronin. “We do not have plans to radically transform the brand.”
Doronin added, “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 and further enrich our guests’ experience, which remains our number one priority.”
Approaching its fourth decade, and embracing 31 resorts, hotels, residences and expeditions in 20 destinations, recently appointed Chief Operating Officer Roland Fasel to oversee Aman’s operations, including Amanyangyun, the brand’s most ambitious project to date, opening in autumn 2017 on the outskirts of Shanghai.
