Designed by architect Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston, Aman New York is in its final stages of its renovation. Once complete, the hotel will have of 83 guestrooms and suites, which start at 750 square feet and each have a functioning fireplace (pretty cool!). In addition, Aman New York will house 22 private branded residences, many with outdoor terraces, including a five-story penthouse. Guests and residents will have access to three principal dining venues, a jazz club and the nearly 25,000-square-foot Aman Spa. The hotel will also be home to an Aman Club for members.
Bringing authentic omakase washoku cuisine to Manhattan, Aman’s signature fine-dining Japanese restaurant, Nama, will serve sushi and sashimi at its live-cooking counter and on its outdoor terrace. The Wine Library, Aman New York’s wine cellar, will sit adjacent to Nama and will be available for private wine tastings and events. Arva, Aman’s signature Italian restaurant, will offer all-day dining both within the restaurant and on the wraparound garden terrace, which offers views of Central Park. The Bar will serve cocktails, as well as craft beers and gin from leading local breweries and distilleries and a global selection of fine wines, the Cigar Bar provides an al fresco terrace.
Aman New York will bring to life “the fullest expression of the Aman Urban Wellness concept.” Extending over three-stories, the Aman Spa will be the brand’s new flagship Wellness Center in the western hemisphere. Encompassing three rooms dedicated to consultation, examination and therapy, the Wellness Center will have seven spa treatment suites and two Banya and Hammam Spa Houses—designed for half- and full-day experiences. Each Spa House has its own private outdoor relaxation terrace with hot and cold plunge pools.
Other spa facilities will include a boutique and lounge, and a 200-foot indoor swimming pool lined with double daybeds and fire pits. The Aman Fitness Centre will offer the latest Technogym training equipment, while the yoga studio will be complemented by a hydrotherapy facility with saunas, steam rooms, ice fountains and sensory showers. A barber and hair and nail salon will provide professional grooming and further beauty services.
The fully serviced branded residences, which range from one to six bedrooms, will have “grand-scale” functioning fireplaces in living and bedroom spaces and many will have outdoor terraces and heated pools. Residence owners will also have a private entrance to the Aman Spa, as well as access to 24/7 lifestyle management and concierge services, restaurant service from the principal dining venues and a lifetime membership to Aman Club.
