Aman Tokyo
Tokyo

Top 10s logo 

Aman Tokyo is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Lux City Hotels and Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia. It also has one of our Top 10 Swimming Pools.

After the resounding success of their first urban hotel venture in Venice, Aman have spread their wings to Tokyo, much to our delight! Less than five years old, the cutting-edge property has become one of our firm Ampersand Favourites. The luxury travel demographic is moving away from the traditional domestic market base in Japan, and Aman have recognised this by creating a hotel that is not taken up by the large local weddings which older hotels bank on. Spread over six floors at the top of the Otemachi tower, the sleek, spacious rooms and suites create a calm oasis far above the city’s exhilarating buzz. Thanks to award-winning architect Kerry Hill’s vision, Aman Tokyo is a true 'urban sanctuary', complete with minimalist elegance and floor-to-ceiling windows that boast panoramic views over the metropolis’ dazzling skyline.

The interior harmonises quintessential Japanese elements with Aman’s understated chic design – a killer combination. This aesthetic is perfectly captured by the soaring atrium, in which charcoal-coloured basalt stone tiles tastefully offset white washi rice paper skylights. A delicate floral arrangement stands proud as the central piece, shifting with the seasons from pale cherry blossom in the spring to rich red leaves in the autumn.

Subtle style abounds throughout the hotel, casting a sense of sophistication and relaxation all around. This atmosphere is particularly effective within the spa and pool area, where one is immediately enveloped in an almost meditative air. The vast 30-metre pool is a complete knock out – arguably the best in the city – offering a striking yet tranquil space in which to unwind. Choose between swimming laps in the aquamarine water that shimmers gently in the signature dark basalt tiles or rest on the reclining daybeds, soaking in the spectacular views over Tokyo Tower and the skyscrapers beyond. There is also an ‘onsen’ communal bath, designed to provide relief after a rejuvenating steam, which looks out over another of Tokyo’s iconic landmarks – the SkyTree. If you prefer to admire the unparalleled cityscape privately, relax in the comfort of your en-suite in the basalt bath, modelled on a traditional Japanese ‘ofuro’ soaking tub. We recommend doing so just as night falls to see Tokyo at its prime – the twinkling lights of the city stretch as far as the eye can see and, on a clear evening, the sun can be seen setting over the majestic Mount Fuji on the horizon.

The spa combines Aman's renowned chemical-free essences with the Japanese health system of Kanpo, with eight generous spa treatment rooms. No other luxury comforts have been spared in this hotel either. The concierge staff are far friendlier and less stiff than those at some other top hotels in Japan and cater to your every need during your stay to the very best of their ability, from organising transfers to providing access to cultural experiences, such as sumo tournament tickets.

Aman couldn't have chosen a better geographical position – there are more subway and metropolitan lines passing through this station than any other, with the Imperial Palace a stroll away in one direction and the high fashion district of Ginza in the other. This area has more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere else in the world, and The Restaurant by Aman here aims to compete on the world stage for culinary innovation. From the lounge cocktails to the 1,200-bottle cellar, Aman Tokyo is the place to wine and dine, and receives the most fashionable of local clientele alongside visitors to the city. Join them for a drink at the bar or simply for breakfast in the morning to be greeted by views across the Imperial Palace Gardens to Mount Fuji.

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with.

An absolutely first-class service all round.
