When Aman New York opened in Manhattan this summer, the hotel quickly became the new go-to destination for those looking for an unforgettable stay. Just like the other two U.S. destinations in the Aman portfolio — the picture-perfect and oft-Instagrammed Amangiri in Utah and the chic cowboy ski retreat Amangani in Wyoming — Aman New York lives up to the hospitality group’s reputation for luxurious living.
Bringing a splash of sophistication to the storied Crown Building at the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, the tranquil, Asian- inspired space features 83 guest suites, including the stunning 2,000-square foot, two-bedroom Aman Suite.
For those who really want to feel at home at Aman New York, there are 22 private homes, complete with an entrance on 56th Street that’s exclusive to owners. Each unit features state-of- the-art Gaggenau kitchen appliances, heated bathroom floors, rain and stream showers, up to three fireplaces, and integrated security; there’s also a 24/7 concierge who will cater to residents’ every need — from hard-to-score dinner reservations and childcare to private dinners and cocktail receptions. As an added bonus, Aman New York Residence owners will be invited to join the private Aman Club as Founders.
The Aman Club joins the growing list of private Manhattan members’ clubs and offers access to two club lounges as well as a cigar lounge and wine room enjoyed by a select community of discerning members. The nearly 25,000-square foot, three-story Aman Spa is an urban sanctuary like no other, featuring a 65- foot pool surrounded by firepits and daybeds, 10 treatment rooms, and fitness facilities with the latest equipment.
Guests and residents don’t need to venture far for a night out either: Aman New York boasts multiple dining and drinking options. The 14th-floor wraparound garden terrace has year-round dining while the jazz club features daily live performances and craft cocktails. Italian restaurant Arva celebrates locally sourced ingredients while Nama is the Aman’s Japanese fine-dining restaurant and features an intimate Omakase bar.
“The opening of Aman New York is a milestone moment in the evolution and growth of the Aman brand, cementing our strategy to bring the coveted Aman lifestyle to the world’s greatest urban locations,” company chairman and CEO Vlad Doronin tells GRAZIA USA.
“Following the success of the multi-award- winning Aman Tokyo, Aman New York marks our greatest investment into a single destination to date. The hotel introduces an entirely new concept to the city through expansive and unmatched amenities, which propels the brand forward, delivering a guest experience like no other.”
Next up: expanding the Aman experience to Miami Beach and Beverly Hills in 2026. Aman has also been busy adding exciting new programming to its existing 34 resorts worldwide. At Amankila in Bali, guests can enroll in the permaculture tour and cooking class, immersing themselves in the local cuisine and culture. At Amandari, also in Bali, the regenerative farming experience was created in partnership with Astungkara Way, a nonprofit that connects Balinese youth with agriculture.
At Italy’s Aman Venice, the historic sailing vessel Edipo Re plays host to the hotel’s “Cook the Lagoon.” During excursions, Chef Matteo Panfilio prepares a selection of cicchetti, or small plates, and four “free-style” courses using seasonal produce and fish fresh from the waters around Venice.

For those looking for the ultimate in relaxation, Amanyara in Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic’s Amanera are unmatched for their beautiful natural settings. “Amanera’s position on the north coast of the Dominican Republic offers visitors to the region the opportunity to connect to nature in a less- frequented part of the island,” says the property’s general manager, Larry Tuck. “Being backed by hillside jungle and fronted by the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, we’re able to extend a variety of nature-based experiences to guests including coastal and beach walks, jungle hikes, and canyoning and rappelling excursions.”
From NYC to the Caribbean, Asia to Europe, one thing is certain: Aman has mastered the art of top-notch service and exceptional hospitality, and there’s plenty more on the horizon for fans of the luxury hotel group.
“My long-term strategic vision has been to continue to grow the Aman brand in key markets, all with Aman-branded Residences, as well as creating an ultra-luxury ecosystem which offers the complete Aman lifestyle,” Doronin notes. “We have set the foundation over the last eight years, celebrating the brand’s DNA while continuing our growth in global cities and remote destinations.”
