Offering extensive wellness facilities and a number of restaurants, this forthcoming resort and destination with exclusive residences, will provide an all-season retreat
December 18, 2019: Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of building a collection of intimate retreats with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. The first, Amanpuri (place of peace) in Phuket, Thailand, introduced the concept and, since then, Aman has grown to encompass 40 exquisitely serene hotels and resorts in 22 destinations across the world.
Expanding fast in the the land of rising sun, Aman announces its fourth resort in Japan with the launch of Aman Niseko – an all-season retreat situated on the high slopes of Mt Moiwa, on an untouched nature reserve, amidst the undiscovered gem of Hokkaido’s Niseko region, scheduled to open in 2023. The Niseko region is renowned for its abundant snowfall, vast long ski runs and endless powder. The summer months are equally appealing, with mild weather ideal for hiking, mountain biking and river rafting. Mountains, forests and rivers dominate in a dramatic landscape that has entranced artists and poets for centuries.
With 30 guest rooms, extensive wellness facilities and a number of restaurants on an expansive 187-hectare site, this forthcoming resort and destination with exclusive residences, is outfitted in the characterictic Aman style of minimalism.
Paying homage to Japan’s ryokan (traditional inn), Aman Niseko will frame spectacular forest and mountain vistas from every angle. The first full spa and wellness resort in Japan, Aman Niseko will offer peace for the senses via multi-faceted experiences that nourish mind, body and soul with personalised retreat programmes. A number of dining venues will make this new Aman as much of a culinary destination, as a ski and all-season mountain retreat, offering both fine dining Japanese, and Italian, in Aman’s Arva concept. The two-storey kids club will feature a reception area, healthy refreshment area and macha bar, an indoor playground, bowling alley, games zone, theatre, matcha bar, half a basketball court, indoor swimming and wading pools, male and female changing rooms, and an extensive outdoor terrace. There will also be a toddler’s play area and a nap room.
With just 31 exclusive Aman branded residences, Aman Niseko presents a unique opportunity to own a home within a very select community, immersed in the Aman lifestyle and the remarkable natural splendour of Hokkaido. Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman, said, “The announcement of Aman Niseko follows the recent and successful debut of Aman Kyoto. Aman Niseko is designed in harmony with its expansive and serene surroundings and the resort and residences will embrace Aman’s devotion to detail and impeccable service. This all-season resort will be a haven of peacefulness immersed in the purest Japanese scenery with the renowned thoughtfulness of Japanese hospitality.”
