Aman turns expansion focus westwards
Singapore, March 27, 2017

Luxury hotel brand Aman will focus its expansion in the Western Hemisphere, after spending almost 30 years establishing its Asian foothold that spans 31 resorts, hotels, residences and expeditions across 20 destinations.


Eleven new hotels and resorts, each with a residential component, were signed in 2016 and are in development. These properties will be located in South America – the brand’s first – as well as South-east Asia, Japan, the US and Europe.

Vladislav Doronin, chairman of the Aman Group, said: “Our strategy continues to place emphasis on seeking out new and outstanding destinations, as well as a continued commitment to curate resorts of architectural distinction by commissioning new and up-and-coming architects. We do not have plans to radically transform the brand.”


Recent Asia-Pacific additions to the collection include Amandayan in China, custom-built Phinisi cruiser Amandira in Indonesia and Amanemu in Japan. As well, another China property, Amanyangyun, will open on the outskirts of Shanghai in autumn 2017.


The company has also recently appointed COO, Roland Fasel, to oversee all facets of Aman’s hotel, resort and private residence operations. [
