Let’s be clear: ordinary mortals will not sleep there. The room costs the equivalent of a Paris-New York round trip in business class, or $3,200. And if you don’t sleep there, having a drink is not an option unless you pay a $200,000 entrance ticket, the price to belong to the closed circle of Aman Club members.
This sesame allows you to enter this ultra-select lair and enjoy the bar terrace, the two restaurants, the spa and a certain idea of the grandiose. By buying and transforming an iconic building, The Crown Building, into 83 suites and 22 residences for approximately $1.3 billion. The hubbub of the city fades to give way to a subdued atmosphere.
In this urban oasis imagined by the Belgian Jean-Michel Gathy, all the codes of a luxurious Asian minimalism are there. The shadows of the staff (five members of staff for one client) evolve silently in a universe where each piece of modern art seems to have been taken out of a museum for the eyes of the clients. The 83 suites are as big as apartments, but exude the scent of a sanctuary.
Behind the bay windows, you can make out the roar of the city, but you can’t hear it. In a subtle marriage of black and cream, wood and stone, let yourself be lulled by the decor of a Japanese symphony: a shoji-style screen, washi wallpaper, a pattern evoking a tatami, a bathroom like a spa…
On the 14th floor, an insanely high bar, restaurants (Nama, a Japanese restaurant, where you can learn how to make sushi, and Arva, a refined Italian restaurant) and a green terrace. Not to mention a spa that occupies three floors. Stratospheric, we told you…
Price per person from 8,850 euros including: return flights Paris / New York in business class on La Compagnie, 3 nights in a 5th Avenue Junior Suite at the Aman New York hotel, breakfasts.
