Amanemu Hotel


Nagi Suite bedroom High Res 169

Going off grid doesn’t get more luxurious than at Amanemu, where high-end hotel group Aman have put their second stamp on Japanese soil. Sheltered by the forested hills of Ise-Shima National Park and Ago Bay – nicknamed ‘Bay of Pearls’ after the abundance of iridescent gems – you’ll find no shortage of natural beauty. Away from the typical tourist route yet close to pilgrimage sites, it’s home to minka-inspired villas and suites, private mineral-rich onsens and the finest selection of sashimi in the region. With views overlooking the bay or bamboo gardens, natural materials – wood, bamboo and stone – amplify the surrounding serenity. You’re invited to slip away at the spa, take laps of the 33m infinity pool and taste tea and saké at the restaurant. Arrive via train or helicopter – the choice is yours.
