French-colonial elegance fused with timeless temple traditions. The pace of Luang Prabang is seductively slow. Observe the ebb and flow of the mighty Mekong, and see flashes of saffron as the Buddhist monks tread softly between temples, in Laos’s spiritual capital, a well-preserved Unesco World Heritage Site. Overlooking the town at the foot of sacred Mount Phousi, the French-colonial building retains a genteel tranquillity from the past, whereas private pools and an expansive state-of-the-art spa keep contemporary souls in their comfort zone

The launch of new restaurants Nama and Arva in select locations worldwide represents the beginning of a significant new chapter for Aman in the world of gastronomy.
Paying tribute to Italy’s rich culinary heritage Arva celebrates the robust flavours and simple ingredients of Italy’s cucina semplice culinary tradition, and the ingenuity required to tease out both the most powerful and delicate tastes from what is seasonally available. Arva pays tribute to this in its name, ‘cultivated land’ in Latin, and its ethos: the shared enjoyment of uncomplicated flavours in a welcoming and congenial atmosphere.
Celebrating Japan’s tradition of culinary artistry, Nama offers exquisitely crafted sushi and sashimi at the heart of a menu celebrating Washoku, the UNESCO-celebrated ‘food of Japan’. Drawing its name from the Japanese word for ‘raw’, Nama is imbued with a strong sense of place, and serves simple yet sophisticated dishes that are true to the age-old preparation techniques of the Japanese kitchen.
