History

Main Swimming Pool, Amanpuri

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, Aman embraces 32 resorts and hotels in 20 countries and continues to seek out transformative experiences and awe-inspiring locations around the world with a further eight coming soon, taking the brand to 40 resorts in 22 countries. Many also offer branded residences: secluded sanctuaries that reach far beyond commonplace notions of luxury allowing a select few to make the ‘Aman way of life’ a permanent reality. 

In recent years, Aman has grown to offer its coveted lifestyle beyond the parameters of its havens. In 2018, the introduction of Aman Skincare continued the brand’s holistic approach through beautiful scented formulas using powerful natural ingredients. The introduction of Sva - a range of supplements designed to help maintain optimum health - and Aman Fine Fragrance continued this journey, bringing the spirt of Aman into the comfort of home. This sentiment was echoed in 2021, with the arrival of a new retail collection, The Essentials by Aman, comprising timeless ready-to-wear pieces for every guest.
