Aman will open the brand’s first city property, Aman Tokyo, on Monday December 22nd in the top six floors of the recently-built Otemachi Tower. What is set to be an urban sanctuary high above Tokyo not only marks Aman’s presence in Japan, but is also the inauguration of the brand’s presence at its 27 properties worldwide.
Located in the prestigious Otemachi financial district, Aman Tokyo comprises 84 rooms and suites — each with panoramic city views — as well as a peaceful inner garden, an Aman Spa, a swimming pool, a restaurant, a Cigar Lounge, and a Resident’s Library.
Upon entering, guests will first remark on the lobby’s soaring centerpiece, a majestic architectural feature resembling the interior of a Japanese paper lantern which rises nearly 30 meters — or six stories — high. During the day, it allows diffused sunlight to illuminate the lobby, at evening time, it provides ambience with a series of orchestrated lighting scenes.
Beneath the Lantern is the hotel’s inner garden boasting a prominent Ikebana (a disciplined art form in which materials such as living branches, leaves and blossoms are carefully arranged to represent a closeness with nature), complemented by a water feature and two traditional Japanese Zen rock gardens.
Located on the ground floor, The Café by Aman specializes in Mediterranean-inspired fare featuring the hotel’s own signature sake, and will offer lunch and dinner with outdoor Otemachi Forest view seating.
On the 33rd level, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of the Imperial Palace Gardens and towards Mount Fuji in the distance, The Lounge by Aman serves gastronomic fine dining based on Mediterranean cuisine including a selection of Japanese and Asian inspired dishes.
Designed for both leisure and business travellers, Aman Tokyo’s 84 rooms and suites are spacious and modern — in a distinctly Japanese aesthetic. Each room and suite has a large furo, a deep soaking tub that is a core part of the Japanese ritual of bathing.
Deluxe Rooms face the Imperial Palace Gardens; Premier Rooms look towards the Tokyo Skytree®, the tallest building in Japan, and the Suites offer an abundance of space and spectacular — some even panoramic — views.
Amenities that guests will particularly enjoy include the Aman Spa’s eight treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art Fitness Centre, a Yoga studio, a Pilates Studio equipped with the latest apparatus and a 30-meter swimming pool stretching across the skycap. Facilities include steam rooms and traditional Japanese hot baths.
In addition to a world-class stay, Aman Tokyo offers scenic views of the Imperial Palace Gardens and surrounding landmarks, and easy access to all points of interest in the city including the renowned Ginza shopping district.
