History

Aman opens doors to discovery in exceptional locations, both remote and urban.

Meticulously designed to frame their natural settings, Aman destinations are renowned for space and privacy. Each welcomes guests as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and historical landscapes.

It is an approach that has changed little since 1988 when the first retreat was built on Phuket’s west coast. It was named Amanpuri, meaning ‘place of peace’, and Aman was born.

Today, embracing 31 resorts, hotels, and private residences in 20 countries, Aman continues to seek out transformative experiences and awe-inspiring locations around the world.
