History

Aman opens doors to discovery, pursuing the limits of cultural enlightenment and pioneering experiences in locations both remote and urban.

Meticulously designed to frame their natural setting, Aman destinations are renowned for space and privacy. Each welcomes guests as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of belonging thousands of miles from home. Today, embracing 30 resorts, hotels and residences across 20 countries, Aman explores the world, discovering rare locations that embody historical and natural provenance.

Throughout, many principles have remained unchanged since 1988 when Adrian Zecha built a private retreat on Phuket’s west coast for the pleasure of a few friends. He named it Amanpuri, meaning ‘place of peace’, and Aman was born.

Looking to the future, Aman will continue to conceive transformative experiences in new and unparalleled locations.
