Opening November 1 this year, Aman Kyoto will mark Aman’s third resort in Japan. Consisting of a series of standalone pavilions, the property will offer a retreat among 80 acres of forest and gardens while remaining close to the city’s 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The centerpiece of the property, the eight-acre garden, is formed as a series of manicured platforms, enclosed on one side by a small stream and, on another, by a wooded hill. Moss-covered stone pathways cross the site with garden stairways leading guests up and down the platforms. Colorful yama momiji maples and kitayama-sugi trees, planted in avenues, border the garden. Within the formal lawn at the center of the site, large granite boulders strewn the space, placed there by the former owner.

Kerry Hill Architects, who designed both Aman Tokyo and Amanemu, is leading the design of Aman Kyoto. The hotel will include separate arrival, living, dining and spa pavilions, as well as four guest pavilions that will house 24 guestrooms and two separate two-bedroom villa pavilions.
