“Aman” means peaceful in Sanskrit, and that’s exactly what this new luxury hotel wants to become: a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The highly anticipated Aman New York is the latest addition to the global roster of Thailand-born Aman properties. The new hotel, located in Manhattan’s iconic Crown Building (at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue), will begin welcoming guests on August 2, while reservations will open a few days earlier on July 25.
Home to 83 suites and 22 signature residences curated down to the finest detail, Aman New York is almost like an exhibition of art and design. Warren & Wetmore, the iconic architecture firm known for Grand Central Station and the Helmsley Building, were also behind the design of the Crown Building, and although the host building has undergone a makeover, some of its features the most authentic have been preserved in the new Hotel. Aman’s signature design blends well with the building’s historic architecture and creates an oasis of tranquility for every guest.
Relaxation and tranquility are paramount at Aman New York. Equipped with a flagship Aman spa that occupies 24,800 square feet over three floors, the hotel invites guests to relax by the 65-foot indoor pool and its adjacent fire pits or enjoy one of the many experiences wellness offered.
The hotel’s outdoor space is another peaceful escape. With reflecting pools and beautiful fire pits, the 7,000 square foot terrace can be used year round thanks to its retractable glass roof. Additionally, a verdant wraparound garden terrace connects the two restaurants – Arva, Aman’s Italian restaurant and Nama, Aman’s take on the Japanese tradition of the washoku meal – and the wine library nestled within the building.
Those looking to embrace tranquility with some privacy can do so from their own bedroom. Each suite is oversized and equipped with a functional fireplace, and the open architecture with large bay windows allows you to savor the lightness of the space even more.
“Following the success of the multi-award-winning Aman Tokyo, our strategy to bring the coveted Aman lifestyle to urban destinations continues,” said Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman, in a statement. official. “A landmark opening, Aman New York marks our largest investment in a single destination to date. The hotel introduces an entirely new concept to the city with expansive and unmatched amenities, which propel the brand forward, offering an unparalleled customer experience.”
