About Aman Tokyo
High above the bright lights and hectic streets of Japan’s vibrant Tokyo, Aman Tokyo - the first city property from the luxury resort company Aman – is a tranquil urban escape occupying the top six floors of the 38-storey Otemachi Tower. As views go, these are pretty spectacular. Rising high above the frenzied metropolis you'll find a Zen-like tranquillity that's a welcome contrast to the bustling energy down at street level. Interiors are created from a combination of classic Japanese materials such as camphor wood, washi paper and stone in order to reflect traditional homes. All 84 suites are exquisitely outfitted, many with a large furo, a deep soaking tub intrinsic to the Japanese ritual of bathing. Each suites has a unique layout and modern technology and luxury fabrics ensures your stay is as connected and comfortable as possible. Each of the rooms has incredible city views, including the Imperial Palace Gardens and the Tokyo Skytree. Larger suites offer dining areas and full-equipped pantries, offering apartment-style living in the heart of Tokyo.
Otemachi, the district surrounding the hotel, is an up and coming area that's famous for gastronomy. Aman Tokyo's four restaurants are no exception: Arva offers a menu comprised of almost no Japanese cuisine, a surprising quirk considering the location. Then there's the added bonus of a table with a view - the restaurant overlooks the Imperial Palace Gardens and on a good day, Mount Fuji can be seen in the distance. The hotel also affords a host of luxurious facilities to further enhance your experience, such as a wine cellar, cigar lounge and a large Aman spa that covers two floors and houses eight treatment rooms. The yoga and pilates studio is ideal for increasing that Zen-like tranquillity further, and the fitness centre includes changing rooms that feature traditional Japanese hot baths and a steam room.
