Earth’s natural beauty
Even in the most unexpected of places, nature’s beauty can surprise and delight. From the urban streets of Tokyo which transform each spring with cherry blossoms, to the wildlife that flocks to Jackson Hole as the snow thaws, Aman’s destinations showcase the natural world at its most inspiring.
Of all Aman’s 34 properties, perhaps the most astounding natural beauty reveals itself in Kyoto’s Takagamine district – a 16th century artists’ haven. Today, it is the site of Aman Kyoto’s secret garden, which traces the area’s dynasty. In the spring it flourishes, providing a base for experiences that celebrate nature’s forms – from ikebana flower arranging to meditations and painting classes.
For some however, the balm of sun, sand and sea is nature at its most appealing. On the island of Providenciales, Amanyara harnesses its beautiful coastal setting on the edge of North West Point Marine National Park. For adults, experiences include kayaking and snorkelling in the mangroves, while for little ones, regular SEEK (Science Explorers and Environmental Keepers) Camps are designed to cultivate enthusiasm and stewardship for the environment.
Similarly, in Europe, on the untouched Aegean coastline, Amanruya offers on-the-water discovery by way of tailor-made sailing experiences. Showcasing some of the world’s most idyllic grounds for seafaring, itineraries range from full-day excursions to island-hopping, picnics in picturesque bays and sunset cruises, ideal for exploring the spectacular landscape of the Bodrum peninsula – a fabled coastline where classical history and natural beauty are found in equal measure.
