‘Aman’ meaning ‘peace’ in Sanskrit, has for thirty years provided guests with the opportunity to escape the frenetic pace of life and to retreat into a balanced, calmer, and more measured way of being. Meticulously designed to frame their natural settings, each Aman welcomes guests as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and historical landscapes. It is an approach that has changed little since 1988 when the first retreat was built on #Phuket’s west coast. It was named #Amanpuri, meaning ‘place of peace’, and #Aman was born. Today, embracing 31 resorts, hotels, and private residences in 20 countries, Aman continues to seek out transformative experiences and awe-inspiring locations around the world #Aman30 #AmanCelebrations
