Luxury hospitality group Aman Resorts and Hotels has announced plans to debut in the UAE with an all-suite hotel and spa in Dubai.

Designed by Kerry Hill Architects, Aman Dubai will have a prime coastal position directly on Jumeirah Beach with panoramic views of the azure water and Dubai’s skyline.

It will feature a limited number of Aman-branded residences, an extensive Aman Spa covering more than 2,000sq m, several choices of restaurants and an Aman Club.

The project is owned by Bright Start, a real estate investment company with a portfolio of real estate assets, including high-end hospitality projects, residential developments and commercial venues.

Bright Start has appointed H&H Development – a UAE-based real estate developer – to deliver the project.

“Responding to the requests from Aman guests for our presence in Dubai has long been part of my growth vision,” said Vlad Doronin, chair and CEO of Aman. “Securing the optimal site was paramount to ensure the delivery of our unparalleled service and authentic experiences, for which we’re world-renowned.

“I’m delighted that we’ve collaborated with Bright Start which has a profound understanding of this market, to bring to life the essence of Aman in this exceptional location.”

With nine acres of gardens, Aman Dubai will showcase the brand’s typical minimal and contemporary design aesthetic, making use of natural materials and clean lines to frame the cityscape and waterfront views.

Design plans feature local stone in a palette of desert tones and subterranean spaces and courtyards intertwined with extensive gardens that lead to the beach and private living spaces.

Aman Dubai is currently in the development phase and further information about the property will be released in due course.

In other news, Aman recently unveiled the first property under its new sister-brand Janu in Tokyo.

Check out the latest issue of Spa Business for an exclusive interview with Yuki Kiyono, Aman's head of global head of health and wellness development, for the low down on the future of Janu.

More about Aman

Founded in 1988, Aman has grown to encompass 35 hotels, resorts and branded residences, ranging from the urban to the remote, in 20 destinations across the globe.

The group has a robust pipeline of future projects in the works, with nine properties under construction.
