Debuting its first hot springs resort and its second location in Japan, Aman introduced Amanemu in Ise Shima National Park this past March. The property features 24 suites and four two-bedroom villas, each with its own onsen. Adopting a classic Japanese aesthetic, Amanemu was designed by Kerry Hill Architects, the same team responsible for creating the look for Aman Tokyo. Aman Spa, influenced by the natural hot springs, has a large central onsen for communal bathing and two private spa pavilions with their own indoor and outdoor onsen. The 21,527-square-foot spa also has a fitness center and a glass-walled yoga studio with an outdoor deck overlooking a tranquil garden. Four treatment suites are available for those who want to experience therapies utilizing the mineral-rich onsen water and traditional herb-based practice of kampo, derived from the study of Chinese medicine in Japan. The inviting spa is the perfect place to soak away any aches or pains after trekking the historic pilgrimage routes for which the region is known. Spa-goers will definitely get a taste of tradition on their journey to wellbeing.
