Following the successful launch of Aman Tokyo in Japan, the luxury resort group has launched another property, Amanemu. Located in Ise Shima National Park in Honshu’s Mie Prefecture, Amanemu is located 300 kilometres southwest of Tokyo and offers panoramic vistas of the beautiful Ago Bay.

Amanemu adopts a classic Japanese ryokan tradition that sees simplicity in design and minimalistic décor in each of its 24 suites and four villas. Each suite features garden views and a veranda with daybeds. Meanwhile, each villa also includes garden views with an additional two en-suite bedrooms and an expansive living area for six. Being the first hot-spring resort, each accommodation has its own private onsen area for immersion in the rejuvenating waters.

Speaking of rejuvenation, Amanemu’s spa spans 2,000 square metres, offering two onsen bathing pavilions, four spa treatment suites and a watsu pool, among other things. In addition, a fitness centre and a yoga studio are also available within the spa compound. For dining, the resort’s restaurant serves scrumptious Japanese cuisines such as Mastusaka Wagyu beef and plenty of seafood dishes, as well as variety of international dishes and refined libations for guests to choose from.

No trip is complete without visiting nearby attractions, and Amanemu provides bespoke journeys for guests including a trip to the beautiful forests of Ise Shima National Park, the UNESCO-protected pilgrimage routes of Kumano Kodō, and Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, Ise Jingū. 

“Amanemu is in an exceptional location and as per the Aman DNA will be harmoniously blended with its surroundings. This, our first onsen resort, with its nutrient-rich hot springs, will offer an enriching holistic experience that is very much centred on wellness and tradition,” said Olivier Jolivet, CEO of Aman resorts.
