ENIGMA CELEBRATES NOWRUZ, THE PERSIAN NEW YEAR
Last December, to celebrate my mother Razia’s birthday, the family traveled to Dubai. While dad and mum stayed at my brother Aiyaz’s beautiful home, located on the trunk of the man-made Palm, Laveena and I checked into Fairmont The Palm.
Aman is pleased to announce its third resort in Japan with the launch of Aman Kyoto, scheduled to open on 1 November, 2019. Situated in a hidden garden close to Kinkaku-ji Temple (Golden Pavilion), the resort, with 24 rooms and two two-bedroom villas, draws on the country’s ryokan (traditional inn) and onsen (hot spring) concepts to provide an authentic yet contemporary Kyoto sanctuary surrounded by nature. Unlocking the secrets of Japan’s ancient Imperial capital, Aman Kyoto and its secret garden are just a stone’s throw from the city’s 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, yet feel a world away.
Opened in October 2018, Musashi by Aman is the exciting latest culinary addition to Aman Tokyo. Located on the 34th floor of the urban sanctuary with views of the capital’s skyline and, on a clear day, Mount Fuji in the background, Musashi introduces traditional and authentic style sushi to the hotel’s culinary offering, and together with the hotel’s existing dining outlets, Arva, the Café by Aman, and the Lounge by Aman, cements Aman Tokyo as a must-visit gastronomic destination for any travelling foodie. Helmed by renowned Master Chef Hiroyuki Musashi, Musashi by Aman seats just eight guests at a Hinoki wooden counter, offering an intimate experience and the opportunity to view the sushi artisan at work up close.
