'Year at Aman'... Travel the World with Ampersand & Aman

- AMAN Resorts Logo Banner 3THAILAND - AmanPuri, Beach Club
Are you an Aman-junkie? Have you ever wondered what the best Aman resort in the world is? Or have you ever wished – in your wildest dreams, perhaps – that you could make your Aman experience go on endlessly? If so, we have a spectacular idea for you…

Ampersand Travel & Aman are thrilled to announce our most phenomenal luxury tour to date: it entails a trip of epic proportions journeying across the world staying in every single Aman resort over the course of 1 year. Aman is Sanskrit for peace and this will undoubtedly be the most peaceful and enlightening year sabbatical of your lifetime.

Travelling seamlessly throughout 19 countries & 4 continents – from Buddhist temples in Bhutan to relaxing on a Caribbean beach, from skiing in the Alps to staying within Galle Fort in Sri Lanka – this journey will allow you to experience an astonishing array of different cultures and landscapes, but with the constant rock of returning to the exquisite comforts of an Aman resort at the end of each day. 
Twelve Aman resorts are on the beach, 8 are in the mountains and 7 are in or near a city, so you would never tire of the same scenery. One of the many benefits of staying exclusively at Aman resorts is the continuity it will give you, with every preference or dislike passed on personally from GM to GM. Aman’s trademark is their discreet yet warm service and the care you will receive during the course of this journey will be truly exceptional, making you feel like you are simply moving from one friend’s house to another.

Staying at 32 different locations over 365 days means you would spend an average of 11 nights at each Aman. We have designed this itinerary to ensure you experience the best seasonal weather at each destination: spring in Japan, summer in Indonesia, autumn in the Mediterranean, a white Christmas in Wyoming and end in India as spring returns after a truly lifechanging year. Do bear in mind this is purely a suggested itinerary and each year-long journey will be meticulously tailored to suit each client’s preferences. For those of you who cannot take a year off, the itinerary can also be split into 4 seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter (90 days each), which can be taken individually.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
