Aman Tokyo

Aman Tokyo Lobby
Aman Tokyo is an intimate, glamorous, urban oasis occupying the top floors of the Otemachi Tower, high above the buzzing megalapolis of Tokyo. The tone is set by the 33rd floor breathtaking lobby which resembles a gigantic art gallery with its vast light filled open spaces, low symmetrical seating and soaring 30-meter high ceiling made of translucent Washi rice paper and designed to resemble the inside of a traditional Japanese shoji lantern. Besides the phenomenal lobby, the other highlight of this property is the spectacular and serene Zen-like spa, which spans an epic 2,500 sqm over two floors and is a minimalist sun-drenched retreat including a sleek 30-metre pool lined with natural materials, a soothing onsen-style stone bath and glass walls serving up spectacular views across the city. The hotel has 84 luxury rooms and suites that feature Aman’s signature understated minimalist style with a blend of traditional Japanese furnishings, such as washi paper sliding doors and a furo deep-soak bathtub. Add to the mix a signature restaurant serving up some of the best Italian food in the city and a stunning mood lit bar overlooking the cityscape and the green Imperial Palace gardens, and you have the ultimate refined and exclusive hospitality experience in the heart of Tokyo.
