Aman Resorts will open the luxury Aman Tokyo on December 22, taking the brand to 27 properties worldwide.
Located in Japan’s financial district of Otemachi, the hotel occupies levels 33 to 38 of the recently built Otemachi Tower, offering scenic views of the Imperial Palace Gardens and surrounding landmarks such as the renowned Ginza shopping district.
The property is designed by Kerry Hill Architects, who have incorporated a mix of the elements and traditional Japanese design, such as playing with an abundance of daylight, classical Japanese materials such as Camphor wood, Washi paper and stone.
Designed for both leisure and business travellers, the hotel offers 84 rooms and suites, including the entry-level 71 sqm deluxe room; the premier room is 80 sqm, offering a large foyer and bathroom; the suites are sized from 141 sqm, featuring a well-equipped pantry in the dining room with refrigerator, sink, dishwasher and microwave oven; the 121 sqm Corner Suite and 157 sqm Aman Suite both offer good views of the city. The design of each room and suite draws on inspiration from the Japanese aesthetic, with offerings such as a large furo – a deep soaking tub and a core part of the Japanese bathing ritual.
