Rise early for a trek to the legendary Tiger's Nest, an iconic temple clinging to a cliff face.

The hike is challenging and the incline steep, but the view from the halfway point – where you will stop to take tea – and the achievement of reaching the temple is well worth it.

Venice, Italy - 4 May 2018

After Montenegro, we arrive by private jet to the romantic city of Venice, Italy. Once you’re settled in your rooms at the grandiose Aman Venice, allow the romance of Italy’s City of Water to whisk you to some of the most wondrous sights in the Western world. From the Piazza San Marco and St. Mark’s Basilica to a panoramic gondola ride on the Grand Canal, the magical city is yours to explore and experience as you wish.

TOKYO
Aman Tokyo

Aman Tokyo

Since its opening at the end of 2014, Aman Tokyo has been one of the most talked-about luxury hotels in the city. The most striking thing about it is its location; spread across the top six floors of a 40-storey tower in the Otemachi business district, the panoramic views are simply incredible. What’s more, all of the 84 rooms and suites take full advantage of the lofty position with floor-to-ceiling windows letting light in during the daytime, while also framing the breathtaking lit-up cityscape at night. Aman Tokyo has also received praise for its impressive interiors, which have been inspired by minimalistic design, including the use of camphor wood, washi paper and stone surfaces throughout the rooms as well as traditional Japanese facilities such as large ‘furo’ baths. Situated on the 33rd floor, both guests and non-guests can enjoy the fine Mediterranean food at the hotel’s signature restaurant, not forgetting more of those incredible views across Tokyo stretching as far as the Imperial Palace Gardens and Mount Fuji in the distance. Elsewhere, there is a spa, enclosed garden area, swimming pool, wine cellar, cigar lounge and a whole host of other facilities to keep guests entertained.

 
 
SHANGHAI
Aman Shanghai

Aman Shanghai


In 2017, Aman opens their fourth property in China, nestled within an idyllic historical village. More than a resort, the new Aman represents a valuable act of cultural preservation as well as an opportunity for guests to experience a piece of China's deep rural history within driving distance of central Shanghai. The hotel's story begins with the construction of a reservoir, whose waters threatened to flood a small, abandoned village in the mountainous countryside of the Jiangxi province. Together, historians and architects worked to delicately relocate 50 Ming and Qing Dynasty houses, some dating back over 2,000 years. A selection of ancient camphor trees, renowned for their beauty and scent, were also relocated and nursed back to full health alongside the homes they shaded for millennia.  Aman Shanghai is currently accepting enquiries of interest, and may be tentatively included in Remote Lands itineraries scheduled for late 2017.
