It's like collecting luxury stamps on passports.
Comments

In a past story on conversation starters, Town&Country’s Whitney Robinson says many of the jet set are on a quest to visit as many Aman resorts as they can, likening it to collecting stamps on passports.

With over 30 properties in 20 countries and counting, the Aman brand continues to expand, bringing its signature travel experiences to more picturesque locations around the world. If you are a loyal Aman junkie, here are some of its notable luxury boutique hotels that you have to cross off your list.

Amanjena
Marrakech, Morocco



A sight like no other, this paradise in the desert integrates Moorish heritage into its 40 pavilions and maisons. A short drive away from the country’s famous Djemaa el-Fna Square and medina of Marrakech, the property is surrounded by olive groves and golf courses with a reflective irrigation pool at its heart. Unique to this palace-like accommodation are the two Turkish-style hammams or steambaths with vaulted ceilings and a private fountain courtyard.

Amanera
Playa Grande, Dominican Republic



Just past the jungles of the Carribean and perched on a cliff, Amanera provides a great view of the ocean from Playa Grande, one of the Dominican Republic’s most beautiful beaches. The latest addition to the Aman empire, the Amanera redefines your typical golf course with its first foray into a fully integrated course. The golf course was designed so that each of its 18 holes are played along the coastline.

In terms of lodging, the Amanera casita offers ocean views and lush green scenery in every corner. The private terrace makes sightseeing a cinch.

Amanpuri
Phuket, Thailand



Who could forget this timeless retreat off the west coast of Phuket—the original Aman, which first opened in 1988? After a visit to this serene getaway, it’s difficult to get the ancient Ayutthayan architecture out of your head. Its Thai-style pavilions and villas are nestled within a mature coconut plantation.

To get around, guests have the resort’s fleet of 20-plus crafts at their disposal, ready to whisk you away to explore the Andaman Sea. There’s also no shortage of watersports on this property.


Amanzoe
Porto Heli, Greece



With pillars of design reminiscent of the Greek modern-day Parthenon, the Amanzoe reinterprets a classic and makes it contemporary. Situated in the Peloponnese countryside, the resort houses a private beach club that overlooks the Aegean Sea. A nearby vineyard provides excellent wine and eight of its treatment rooms offer wellness treatments alongside a Watsu pool and moonlit yoga.

Amanyangyun
Shanghai, China



Aman fans should also be on the lookout for this year’s latest opening, its fourth property in China and the brand’s most ambitious yet. The company will take apart Ming and Qing Dynasty houses from the Yangtze 400 miles away, and piece them back together in their new location, Amangyangyun, just outside of Shanghai.
