Summer enrichment

In the bright sunlight of the season, the trees seem to glow with greenery, and the surface of the sea glitters as though scattered with jewels. Aman’s three retreats in Japan invite guests to celebrate the restorative wonder of the season, reconnecting with nature, family and themselves.

短夜や 夢も現も 同じこと

‘The short summer night – The dream and the real are the same.’

– Takahama Kyoshi

The arrival of summer intensifies the natural colours of Ise-Shima National Park, sharpening the contrast between the rich blue of Ago Bay and the emerald green of the ancient forests. It’s the perfect time to get out and celebrate the beauty of the landscape with activities on both land and sea.

Reconnect at Amanemu

With calm waters and a warm breeze, conditions at sea are ideal for leisurely kayak expeditions or stand-up-paddleboard trips among the islands of the bay. Later on, as dusk approaches, a sunset cruise is an inspiring way to bring the day to a close. Not far from Amanemu, the magnificent coastal golf course provides the opportunity to play in one of Japan’s most scenic locations, with several shots over sea inlets.

Back at Amanemu, the Kids’ Academy programme gives parents the opportunity to make the most of the onsen baths while children are engaged in a daily array of fun learning activities. They don’t have to miss out on the healing power of the resort’s mineral waters, however: private onsen experiences can be arranged for families with lower temperatures for younger guests.

Reenergise at Aman Tokyo

It is set to be a truly special summer for Japan’s capital. With fitness and athleticism in the global spotlight, Aman Tokyo invites guests to spend their stay enriching both body and mind, with fitness-focused activities taking in the hotel’s state-of-the-art gym facilities and extraordinary 33m swimming pool on the 34th floor. Full height windows in both provide sweeping views across the city, dotted with pockets of glorious summer greenery.

Spanning two storeys, the Aman Spa is the biggest and most well equipped of any Tokyo hotel – an inspiring setting to embark on a personalised wellness programme. A diagnosis session on arrival combines Traditional Chinese Medicine, body-composition analysis and postural assessment to develop a bespoke itinerary of treatments, classes and nutrition designed to revive and restore. Japan residents booking seven-night stays from 22 July receive additional privileges and benefits, including complimentary daily one-way transfers around the city.

Refresh at Aman Kyoto

The memories that matter are made through new experiences. The first time we try something is the one that stays with us. This summer, Aman Kyoto offers younger guests the chance to cultivate their artistic sensibilities and indulge their curiosity and creativity with a programme of traditional cultural activities ranging from nature-inspired pattern painting to the making of traditional Japanese sweets.

In the serene forest gardens, alive with blue maple and water lilies, frogs and medaka, young guests can connect with the rich heritage of craftsmanship that has inspired Kyoto for centuries. While the children enjoy the arts, adult guests are treated to moments of tranquillity, such as garden yoga sessions in the fresh, hydrangea-scented air of the evening.
