Aman to Open First Hot Spring Resort in Japan

AmanemuLuxury resort brand Aman has announced its plans to open Amanemu, its first hot spring resort and second Japanese property, in 2016 in the Ise Shima National Park of Honshu’s Mie Prefecture. Situated on the shores of Ago Bay—known as the Bay of Pearls—the resort will feature 24 suites and four two-bedroom villas with their own mineral hot spring. Named after the Sanskrit word for peace and nemu, which means joy in Japanese, the space will also features an Aman Spa, as well as a lap pool, a restaurant, and a lounge. The spa will offer two expansive hot spring bathing pavilions, a watsu pool, four treatment suites, a gym, and a yoga studio. Designed by Singapore-based Kerry Hill Architects, Amanemu will adopt a Japanese aesthetic. “Amanemu is in an exceptional location and as per the Aman DNA, will be harmoniously blended with its surroundings,” says Olivier Jolivet, CEO of Aman. “This, our first onsen resort, with its nutrient-rich hot springs, will offer an enriching holistic experience that is very much centered on wellness and tradition.”
