Remote Lands Expands Aman Private Jet Journeys Wellness Trips

Remote Lands has expanded its Aman Private Jet Journeys with three new trips for fall 2017. In addition to the annual Aman Private Jet Expedition, which will highlight the new Aman in Shanghai, there will be two brand-new Aman Wellness Journeys.

The wellness trips, which are led by Pilates, yoga and body rolling specialists, will incorporate daily wellness sessions and health-conscious meals into cultural excursions. All three trips will fly 16 guests across Asia on two Gulfstream G200 private jets where they will stay in Aman resorts in China, Bhutan, India, Sri Lanka, Bali, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines. Each guest or couple will have their own car, driver and guide for all airport transfers and tours, in addition to customizable itineraries. The entire group will come together each day for cocktail parties, meals and group wellness sessions.
