Lifestyle hotel brand Janu, from the creators of Aman Hotels & Resorts, will unveil its first hotel, Janu Tokyo, from March 2024.

Janu Tokyo becomes the first of 12 planned Janu properties set to open in global city, country, and coastal destinations including Saudi Arabia and Montenegro.

Reservations can now be made for access to stays at Janu Tokyo, Japan from March.

Janu, which means ‘soul’ in Sanskrit, is a brand that will draw on Aman Hotels & Resorts’ 35-year legacy – with Chairman and CEO Vlad Doronin’s expertise in luxury hospitality.

“The arrival of Janu Tokyo signifies a pivotal moment in Aman Group’s progression – not only introducing the energetic spirit of Janu for the very first time – but also representing the evolution and enduring strength of Aman,” said Doronin. 

“As we unveil this new concept in one of the world’s greatest cities, my vision is for the Janu brand to trailblaze a new direction in hospitality whilst preserving, upholding and following in the illustrious footsteps of its legendary sibling Aman,” he said.

The hotel has been created and will be managed by Japan’s leading developer Mori Building Co. Ltd.

As the only hotel within the development, Janu Tokyo will be located in the Residence A Tower and includes eight dining venues, two boutiques and a 4,000 square metre Wellness Centre that includes one of Tokyo’s largest gyms, a 25-metre heated lap pool, a separate lounge pool, and two signature private Spa Houses that introduce an entirely new spa concept to Japan, with cold and hot plunge pools: Banya and Hammam.

“Janu Tokyo’s DNA exudes a youthful energy, brimming with liveliness and playfulness that sets it apart from the poised and composed character of Aman,” comments Jean-Michel Gathy, the award-winning international architect responsible for the hotel’s interior design. 

On floors six to 13, Janu Tokyo’s rooms and suites start at 55 square metres, and see a strong focus on minimalism and symmetry.  Most offer their own private balconies.
