Olivier Lordonnois Named Managing Director of Aman New York

Aman has named Olivier Lordonnois as managing director of Aman New York. He joins the company with over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry across both hotels and private members clubs.

Beginning his career as a trainee at Hôtel de Crillon in 1994, Lordonnois has in-depth understanding of hotel operations. He has held leadership positions at several hotels, including Hôtel Costes and Hotel de la Trémoille in Paris, besides The Mark Hotel in New York. In 2019, Lordonnois moved into the private members club space where he was appointed CEO of Spring Place, with locations in New York and Los Angeles, and later at CORE: in a similar role. Most recently, he returned to the world of luxury hotels as CEO of Flâneur Hospitality, where he was also the managing director of its inaugural New York property, The Fifth Avenue Hotel.

As managing director of Aman New York, Lordonnois will oversee the running of the hotel, as well as the operations of the Aman Residences and Aman Club. He said, “I have been closely following the impact Aman New York has had on the city since its launch and I’m honored to have been chosen to lead the dedicated team there. As managing director, I’m excited to help this pioneering property accomplish even more and continue Aman’s ethos of offering an experience that exceeds all expectations.”

Tip: The newly opened Aman New York is offering “The Ultimate Aman New York Experience.” The three-night experience includes a three-hour ancient ritual of the Banya, a wood-clad sauna featured in one of the two Spa Houses; an immersive, recovery experience in arctic temperatures inside the Cryotherapy Chamber; and a guided 60-minute Mindfulness Meditation session. Guests can opt to stay in a Premier, Sanctuary or Grand Suite, all of which have central fireplaces and spa-like bathrooms with oversized soaking bathtubs.

The experience also includes daily breakfasts; an Italian lunch tasting menu prepared by Executive Chef Dario Ossola at Arva; and an omakase tasting experience by Chef Takuma Yonemaru at Nama, the Japanese restaurant. At night, guests can enjoy music and entertainment performances at The Jazz Club, paired with cocktails, and the opportunity to meet the evening’s headliner.

“The Ultimate Aman New York Experience” is available until March 5, 2023.
