From Kyoto to Greece

Amanzoe, Greece - Hydra Island

7-23 September 2022

From Kyoto to Greece

Up to 18 guests can join this unforgettable private jet expedition, staying at a selection of Aman properties around the globe. The expedition includes authentic experiences, unique cultural immersions and exquisite local cuisines.

 

Destination 1: Japan

Aman Kyoto, Japan - Koetsuji Temple

Aman Kyoto, Japan

Once the imperial capital of Japan, Kyoto was built in 794. Spared much of the devastation of WW2 that other Japanese cities faced, it retains many of its historic buildings – so much so that there are almost 20 Unesco World Heritage Sites within the city. Visit some of the most sacred sites with a knowledgeable local guide, including the Golden Pavilion, Ryoan-ji Temple and Nijo Castle. At the Robert Yellin Yakimono Gallery, enjoy a discussion with Robert on the history of Japanese pottery, while sipping cocktails and sake. 

Destination 2: Philippines

Amanpulo, Palawan, Philippines

Set on its own private island, Amanpulo is the quintessential tropical paradise. On arrival at this whisper-quiet retreat, guests are greeted by cerulean skies and turquoise waters. Amanpulo offers an abundance of aquatic activities, including sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing, as well as beautiful stretches of deserted beach.

Set in a series of wooden pavilions with views out across the sea, enjoy a massage at the Aman Spa, or explore the culinary options the island has to offer.

Destination 3: Indonesia

Amandari, Bali - Swimming Pool

Amandari, Bali, Indonesia

Designed after a traditional Balinese village village, with sweeping views of the Ayung valley's jungled slopes, Amandari has integrated so sensitively into it's hillside setting that it feels as though it has always been here. 
Hike or bike through the rice terraces outside Ubud and enjoy a Balinese blessing at a small temple in a local village, or discover the secret's of Indonesia's vastly varied cuisine, which reflects the country's long history as a trading port.  

Destination 5: Sri Lanka

Amangalla Experience Amangalla Gallery

Amangalla, Sri Lanka

In the historic port of Galle, Amangalla rests within the ramparts of Galle Fort, the Unesco World Heritage Site. Named after Galla, the Sinhalese word for the town, the hotel reveals the Fort’s daily activities and rich legacy, its narrow streets lined with buildings from the Dutch and British colonial eras. The hotel’s 200-year-old gardens are home to a tranquil swimming pool and yoga pavilion, while The Baths, its serene spa complex, offers hydrotherapy and Ayurveda therapies prescribed by an in-house physician. Dine beside the pool, in the elegant Dining Room of the great reception hall, or on the sunny veranda, then take a stroll through the Fort’s quaint lanes to watch locals flying kites on the ramparts overlooking the sea. 

Destination 5: United Arab Emirates

Burj Al Arab, Dubai, UAE

Burj Al Arab, Dubai, UAE

The most populous city within the seven United Arab Emirates, Dubai was once a tranquil coastal town of courtyard houses and palm-frond huts known primarily for pearl diving. Today, sparkling skyscrapers tower over the old city’s minarets, and Dubai is home to the tallest structure on earth, the Burj Khalifa, an office and residential skyscraper 828 metres (2,717 feet) high. 

Destination 6: Turkey

Amanruya, Bodrum, Turkey

The scalloped coastline of the Bodrum Peninsula comprises sheltered coves and quaint villages, and it’s here that millennia of Greek and Roman history are evoked in Unesco-protected ruins. Meandering pebble pathways lead to the property’s central building, where spa suites and a three-storey library overlook the infinity pool, a vision of Antalya marble. Famous for the ruins of Ephesus and the medieval castle at Bodrum, the area is as alluring to historians as it is to holiday seekers.

Destination 7: Greece

Amanzoe, Greece - Pool

Amanzoe, Peloponnese, Greece

The helicopter flight from Athens to Amanzoe creates a swift segue into an altogether wilder Greece - a place of pure nature, where time stands still. Scattered with Unesco ruins, the undiscovered Peloponnese has been at the heart of Greek culture for millennia - and it is here that Amanzoe has made its hilltop home, a modern-day Acropolis from which 360-degree views encompass olive groves, Aegean blue, and little else.
