“It’s the perfect antidote to Tokyo’s surreal, frenetic energy - a place that really promotes wellbeing,” said Carmen after her recent stay at the city’s Aman Hotel. She now counts the urban retreat among one of her favorite places to stay, describing her corner suite as an oasis of calm.
Spanning the top six floors of a 38-storey skyscraper in the business district Otemachi, the hotel is the first urban Aman, the name more typically associated with remote mountain retreats and exotic beaches. However, the Tokyo outpost, which opened in late 2014, retains Aman’s signature understated style, the Kerry Hill-designed minimal interior and monochrome decor reflecting Japan’s design heritage.
Boasting spectacular panoramic views of the Imperial Palace Gardens, courtesy of floor-to-ceiling windows, Carmen’s corner suite provided a serene retreat from the hustle and bustle below, and the spacious and sleek separate sleeping, living, dining, and kitchen areas, added to the air of calm.
