With COVID-19 restrictions slowly being eased in many parts of Southeast Asia, leading hospitality-group Aman announced a phased reopening of its resorts. The hotelier operates 21 properties in Asia including resorts in Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia. Aman revealed that all of its resorts have been adapted to ensure the health and safety of guests but remain unchanged in spirit. The serene hideaways feature the brand’s signature style which many believe could be a blueprint for the future of travel. From the architecture and design of standalone pavilions with private pools to the low room count and subtle service, Aman’s ultra-luxury resorts are already ideal for practicing social distancing by providing the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. However, a number of measures have been put in place to provide travelers with added peace of mind. Every single property has taken all appropriate steps in line with guidelines from the World Health Organization and the government authorities according to each location prior to reopening. The result allows you to enjoy some of the Earth’s most remote destinations and beautiful locations in the coming months after a prolonged period of being stationary. Aman hopes guests can find their sanctuary, a sense of calm and familiarity at one of its ‘places of peace’ in Asia. Amanpuri in Phuket is set to fully reopen on July 1. This was Aman’s first property and has been open for more than 30 years. In the Philippines, the awe-inspiring Amanpulo will welcome guests again on June 26 while the brand’s five Indonesian resorts are set to open between June 19 and August 1. The Amanoi in Vietnam and Amansara in Cambodia remained open during the pandemic in line with local regulations. Aman’s four resorts in China have already reopened while implementing the company’s additional safety measures. All reopening dates in Asia are tentative and may be adjusted due to the changing global situation.
