Now open: Aman New York


Heralding a new era for hospitality in one of the world’s greatest cities, Aman’s newest island destination is now open, with further inventory unveiled for the month of August and beyond.

Since 1921, the Crown Building has presided over the midpoint of Manhattan; the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. Formerly the first home of the Museum of Modern Art, the 100-year-old building has undergone a monumental transformation, which has seen it fully restored to its original splendour and imbued with the inimitable spirit of Aman.

Aman New York celebrates Aman's philosophy of creating sanctuaries beyond commonplace notions of luxury, whilst paying homage to the building's striking architecture and significant history. ​

An invitation to switch off from the outside world, the hotel’s 83 suites are among New York’s largest. Each suite also offers a functioning fireplace (a rarity in Manhattan), while Japanese-inspired interiors bring balance and harmony.​

In a further nod to the brand’s roots, each suite also features a large-scale art mural inspired by the 15th-century masterpiece Pine Trees (Shōrin-zu byōbu) by Hasegawa Tōhaku. One of Japan’s most celebrated works, Pine Trees, owned by the Tokyo National Museum, was designated as a National Treasure in 1952 and is internationally acclaimed. The piece perfectly captures its eminent pre-Edo influence, and is a homage to Tōhaku, printed on delicate rice paper and spanning the walls as a captivating focal point.

Three floors dedicated to holistic wellbeing​

Bringing to life the fullest expression of the Aman Wellness concept yet, Aman New York’s Spa is the brand’s new flagship integrative wellness destination in the western hemisphere. Spanning three storeys (2,300 square metres), its dramatic indoor swimming pool surrounded by fire pits and daybeds serves as a centrepiece, while two Spa Houses provide guests with an unparalleled and all-encompassing spa journey. ​

A world of refined tastes

From the Jazz Club to the year-round Garden Terrace, Aman New York abounds with sociable spaces for dining, drinking and relaxing, guided by the pulse of the city. Arva, the convivial Italian restaurant, is complemented by Nama – Aman’s interpretation of Japan’s washoku dining tradition which includes an omakase counter for Japanese fine dining.

Aman's first urban residences

While the hotel follows in the trailblazing footsteps of Aman Tokyo, the brand’s first urban property which launched in 2014, it also represents the start of a new chapter for Aman, welcoming the very first urban branded residences. A collection of 22 incomparable private homes, including a five-storey penthouse, the fully serviced residences offer an unrivalled address and a complete immersion in the Aman lifestyle, in harmony with the unceasing heartbeat of their surroundings.
