Located on the shores of Ago Bay, Aman opens its latest resort in Japanese Ise Shima National Park. Ago bay, also known as the Bay of Pearls, is one of the most picturesque locations in the scenic Ise Shima National Park.
The yet to be opened Amanemu Resort is set to embrace the ancient Japanese tradition of thermal hot springs. The 24 suits and four villas are equipped with their own mineral hot springs, making it Aman’s first resort to integrate thermal hot springs with the properties on site.
From a visual standpoint, the resort finds its design in the traditional Japanese aesthetics. With the use of natural materials, the Amanemu Resort pays tribute to its direct surroundings while seamlessly blending in with the National Park.
The Amanemu Resort is located approximately 300 kilometers southwest of Japan’s capital Tokyo, and a two-hour scenic train ride away from Japanese city Nagoya. For guests that wish to arrive more exclusively, a helicopter can cut the two hour journey from Nagoya down to just 30 minutes.
Besides housing an extensive Aman spa, including two open-air “onsen”, the Amanemu resort will feature a restaurant focused on the region’s gourmet heritage. A lounge, library and secluded lotus pond with meditation pavilion wrap up the list of amenities.
Opening the first of March 2016, the Amanemu Resort by Aman in Japan now accepts reservations.
