Summer in the city

Summer in the city

From the sprawling metropolises of New York and Tokyo to the 100-island capital of Italy’s Veneto region, Aman’s urban sanctuaries come alive in the summer months – the freedom of exploring a city under clear blue skies and balmy nights spent dining al fresco. Balancing moments of discovery with rest and recuperation, there is no better time to visit Aman’s three urban destinations and experience the renewed energy of the world’s most captivating cities.

Urban Destinations

Aman New York, USA

Aman New York, USA - Residences - Living Area

The storied crown building

The compelling energy of Aman New York is engrained in its legacy – the Crown Building, serving as the hotel’s home, history and inspiration. On entering, it delivers  sanctuary from Midtown’s bustling streets, before transporting guests to the 14th floor - a world away from the city below.  

Here, the season unfolds on the wraparound Garden Terrace, a private summer solace where day turns to dusk over cocktails and small plates while the building’s gold-gilded façade glimmers in the sun’s final rays. Down below, as daylight fades, the Jazz Club comes alive offering a quintessential New York evening – a cool, subterranean spot that captures the energy of a warm summer’s night.  

A vertical retreat

For those already familiar with Manhattan, Aman New York provides a new kind of city break with the three-storey Aman Spa offering a myriad of wellbeing solutions – whether rehydrating parched skin for a bright summer glow, cooling-off in the 20-metre pool or taking part in a guided morning run through nearby Central Park.

The unmatched facilities also include two unique private Spa Houses with their own outdoor terraces, featuring hot baths and cold plunge pools - the perfect spot to enjoy the temperate weather.  

Alternatively, those visiting for the first time - or wishing to fill the longer days by visiting the city’s iconic landmarks and exhibitions - can experience the urban whirl on Aman New York’s doorstep before returning each eve to refuel at restaurants Arva, Nama or in the Bar Lounge.

Aman Venice, Italy

Elegance and opulence

There are few cities more captivating than Venice. Where the lagoon glistens, cobbled streets give way to authentic al fresco dining and aperitivo hour lingers as day turns to dusk. To experience the Floating City at its best – whether on a fleeting city break or longer Italian adventure – Aman Venice’s location on the edge of the Grand Canal is unrivalled.  

Housed in one of the city’s monumental Palazzos, Aman Venice is a piece of history itself. Its walls feature works by Italy’s great artists, – including 16th-century architect Sansovino and 18th-century painter Tiepolo – its culinary scene celebrates the very best of the region, and its gardens offer a window to the waterways that connect the city.

Al fresco allure

Though much of the city’s allure can be enjoyed from within the hotel’s walls, Aman Venice’s private tours provide access to the secrets of the city – from chef-accompanied trips to the Rialto market to rowing lessons, boat trips and visits to Venice’s oldest atelier.  

Alternatively, enjoy al fresco living without venturing too far from the Palazzo, where the day begins with private sunrise yoga on the rooftop terrace and is followed by brunch in the hotel’s Grand Canal-view gardens. By night, cruise aboard the Edipo Re from Aman Venice’s jetty accompanied by Arva’s Executive Chef, dining on the finest seasonal cuisine, or share stories of the day’s discoveries while sipping on a signature cocktail from The Bar.  

Aman Tokyo, Japan

Urban dynamism, profound serenity

Since its opening in 2014, Aman Tokyo has redefined luxury hospitality, reimagining the concept of an Aman escape in vertical form. Capturing the brand’s legacy and heritage in the Japanese capital, Aman Tokyo allowed the sense of peace and sanctuary to be enjoyed in perfect harmony with the energy, vibrancy and dynamism of one of the world’s busiest cities.

As the summer season ensues - Aman Tokyo transforms into the perfect base for loved ones to come together and explore the city in full flourish, before returning to the hotel at dusk to enjoy seasonally inspired cocktails and one of the best sunset views in the city. 

Inspired by Japanese tradition

Aman Tokyo is situated in heart of the city’s financial centre, the hotel perfectly captures both the tradition and modernity that epitomise Tokyo. From inside, panoramic views of the Imperial Palace and the use of traditional Japanese materials offer reference to the surrounds, while ryokan-style rooms, onsen baths, and hospitality inspired by the country’s concept of omotenashi, provide calm refuge.

Serving as a base for exploring the city, this summer, uncover Tokyo through several exclusive experiences. From private tours showcasing the subtleties of Japanese craftsmanship to the refreshing taste of seasonal Afternoon Tea in The Lounge, all ages and interests are well catered for.
