Meaning ‘soul’ in Sanskrit, Janu aims to rekindle inner well-being
March 5, 2020: Aman resorts, famed for providing sanctuaries which delve into the heart of the location and the traveler, has launched a sister brand, called Janu.
“While Aman is synonymous with its Sanskrit translation, ‘peace’, Janu stands for ‘soul’; Aman is a sanctuary, whereas Janu is connectedness; Aman offers refined respite, whereas Janu offers an energetic vibe for those seeking greater purpose with inner contentment,” says the official statement from Aman.
Janu aims to heighten genuine human interaction, playful expression and social wellness at the core of its experience. Janu will create environments that nurture purposeful connection to bring balance to the head and heart and rekindle the soul.
Janu launches with three forthcoming hotels which are already under construction: Montenegro (2022), Al Ula in Saudi Arabia (2022) and Tokyo (2022), as well as a robust pipeline of future hotels.
Janu Montenegro will be the first hotel to incorporate the brands serviced residence concept, enabling guests to fully embrace the Janu lifestyle. The timeless yet contemporary design of each Janu hotel will be focused on space and light, giving an ambience that enhances the mood, encouraging guests to reconnect with themselves and with others. Large guest rooms will offer refined havens of characterful tranquility, all exquisitely furnished and with expansive bathrooms.
Janu’s social spaces will be ever-evolving and dynamic and will offer a mix of dining, lounge and bar areas. A culture of innovation will see limitless gastronomic horizons paired with mixologist-crafted cocktails. A plethora of culinary concepts bolster Janu’s overarching culinary vision; whether it’s low-temperature cooking or harnessing the benefits of fermentation, dramatic open kitchens and lively counter-top displays make for convivial dining experiences that energise the senses.
Social wellness is at the core of the Janu experience with a focus on mind, body and soul. Offering energetic group classes, time-conscious, high-octane group classes and more subdued, mindful practices will allow Janu to balance and realign your body. Expansive wellness facilities will offer cutting-edge experiences, treatments as well as hydro and thermal facilities.
