Staff from Aman Hotels & Resorts and Janu Hotels were in Australia this week to meet with key trade partners.
The representatives of the luxury hotel brand visited trade partners in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, ahead of the anticipated 13 March opening of Janu Tokyo – the debut of Aman’s sister brand, Janu Hotels.
Karryon attended a media breakfast at Sydney’s La Riviera restaurant where London-based Lauryn Cooke, Director of Marketing & Communications spoke to the group about upcoming Aman news, as well as addressing the question everyone’s been asking: what’s the core difference between the Aman and Janu brands?
“Aman is all about peace and sanctuary, Janu is a little bit more dynamic and all about social connectedness. That will really manifest in the F&B offer… we’ve got so many spaces to fill and we’re opening it up to non-guests, which is quite a departure from Aman where typically the F&B spaces are for guests only, except on a few occasions.
“There’s more convivial wellness spaces and a landmark wellness centre. There’s an amazing pool and a second lounge pool that people can relax together in a convivial setting. We’ll also have the only boxing ring in a hotel in Japan.”
Later in 2024, the group will open Aman Nai Lert Bangkok in Q3.
“We don’t have an exact month yet but it will be later in the year,” said Lauryn
The highly anticipated Aman Rosa Alpina in the Dolomites, will open for the winter season, becoming a fully fledged Aman property following an extensive refurbishment.
Further ahead, several more properties are confirmed for the US including Aman Miami Beach in 2026; Beverly Hills slated for a 2027 opening; and a Mexico property opening further ahead.
“Later this year we’ll be sharing more information about Aman at Sea, our luxury super yacht – which won’t launch until 2027 – but we’ve got some key milestones happening this year; and we’re hopefully launching an itinerary for our first vessel by the end of 2024,” said Lauryn.
