Belgian architect-designer Jean-Michel Gathy was commissioned to design the country’s first urban Aman Resort, Aman New York. Situated on the corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, inside the city’s iconic Crown Building, the hotel will start welcoming guests on August 2, while reservations will open on July 25.
Jean-Michel Gathy combines the 100-year-old Beaux-Arts building’s original architectural grandeur with Aman’s design language. The designer employs the particularly Asian characteristic of ‘layering’ of areas and lighting and uses organic, natural materials that bring a sense of balance and harmony reminiscent of Aman resorts of the East.
Aman New York will feature 83-suites and 22 branded residences. Inspired by the spacious architecture of Aman’s properties in Southeast Asia, bespoke double-pivot doors create an open-plan layout. Not only the hotel’s suites are among New York’s largest, but they also boast a functioning fireplace, a first in New York City. The lavish bathrooms include oval soaking bathtubs, marble rain showers and double vanities.
The hotel is home to a flagship Aman Spa. Spanning over three floors, it offers a full range of wellness-enhancing facilities, complete with a 20-meter indoor swimming pool flanked by fire pits and daybeds. For those seeking an immersive wellness experience, two vast Spa Houses comprise double treatment rooms, Banya and Hammam rooms, and private outdoor terraces with hot and cold plunge pools, daybeds, and fireplaces, comparable to those of Aman’s remotest retreats.
14th-floor includes exceptional spaces for socializing. Arva, Aman’s convivial Italian restaurant, and Nama, Aman’s take on Japan’s washoku dining tradition, and a Wine Library, all linked by a verdant wraparound Garden Terrace. Featuring reflective pools and firepits, the 650-square-meter outdoor space features a retracting glass roof allowing year-round access. The exclusive Jazz Club offers world-class live performances, reinventing a classic New York experience and serving as a nightly gathering place.
Aman New York features 22 private branded residences, many with spacious outdoor terraces, including a one-of-a-kind, five-story penthouse.
