To the great delight of Amanjunkies around the world, the long-awaited Aman Tokyo has announced an official opening date. Mark your calendars for December 22, when Aman’s “first city property” welcomes guests to the top six floors of the Otemachi Tower in the Japanese capital. Needless to say, the city views over the Imperial Palace Gardens are superb.
The Aman Tokyo will have 84 rooms and suites, an Aman spa with a pool and yoga studio, a cigar lounge, an inner garden, and restaurants that—in a city known for its award-winning dining—are reaching for the (Michelin) stars. (Particularly noteworthy is the walk-in glass wine cellar, stocked with 1,200 bottles.)
Inspired by traditional Japanese houses, the design by Kerry Hill Architects incorporates classic materials like camphor wood, stone, and Washi paper. The deluxe rooms will be the largest for this room category in Tokyo. A nice touch will be the traditional, Japanese soaking tub (furo) in each room.
This is the 27th hotel in the Amanresorts portfolio. For more information, visit http://www.amanresorts.com/amantokyo/home.aspx
