WELCOMING AMAN NEW YORK - AMAN'S NEWEST ICON IS UNVEILED IN NYC
Heralding a new era for hospitality in one of the world’s greatest cities, Aman’s newest island destination is now in its exclusive preview period.
Since 1921, the Crown Building has presided over the midpoint of Manhattan; the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue. 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.
Resting on the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, Aman New York is located a 45-60 minute drive from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), handling both international and domestic flights.
LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is a 30-40 minute drive from the hotel, whilst Westchester County Airport (HPN) is located 60-75 minutes from the hotel by car, with both handling domestic flights.
For private jet arrivals, Teterboro Airport (TEB) is a 45-60-minute journey by car.
The Aman Story
Meticulously designed to frame their natural settings, Aman destinations are renowned for space and privacy. Each welcomes guests as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and historical landscapes. It is an approach that has changed little since 1988 when the first retreat was built on Phuket’s west coast. It was named Amanpuri, meaning ‘place of peace’, and Aman was born. Today, Aman embraces 34 resorts, hotels, and private residences in 20 countries. Aman continues to seek out transformative experiences and awe-inspiring locations around the world with a further nine projects in the pipeline.
