Today: How to get most worth when reserving an Aman Hotel?

Aman is likely one of the world’s most unique resort manufacturers, providing journey experiences unequalled anyplace else. Meticulously designed to border their pure or city settings, Aman motels are famend for breathtaking areas, domestically impressed structure, and supreme privateness. Each welcomes company as if to the house of an in depth buddy, instilling a way of peace and belonging amid a few of the most various pure and historic landscapes. It is an method that has modified little since 1988 when the primary retreat was constructed on Phuket’s west coast. It was named Amanpuri, that means ‘place of peace’, and Aman was born. Today, embracing greater than 30 ultra-luxe motels in 20 international locations, Aman continues to hunt out transformative experiences and awe-inspiring areas world wide. Among Aman’s habitués is a bunch of passionate repeat clients – self-proclaimed ‘Aman junkies’ (depend me in) – who rave in regards to the service and design aesthetic and whose journey plans are decided by Aman areas.

But with the group’s stellar fame additionally comes a heavy price ticket and staying at an Aman Hotel requires deep pockets (with entry room charges nicely above $1000 USD per evening at most properties). Unfortunately, Aman doesn’t have a loyalty program, in all probability as a result of their rich and dependable company maintain returning anyway. In addition, the model doesn’t compromise on exclusivity as you can’t e-book Aman motels aside from through the Aman web site, luxurious journey brokers and a few bank card corporations (extra on that beneath). So, it doesn’t make sense to begin searching for the speed of an Aman Hotel on aggregator web sites like Hotelscombined and Trivago, since Aman received’t pop up within the search outcomes anyway. However, there are some ideas & methods that may prevent a couple of hundred {dollars} per evening when staying at an Aman Hotel. I hereby share with you the three finest methods – a minimum of for my part – for reserving a room (and even suite) at an Aman property. You can share your personal ideas within the feedback.

AMANGIRI, UTAH, USA


1. BOOK VIA VIRTUOSO

Almost all Aman properties belong to the portfolio of Virtuoso. Virtuoso will not be your traditional resort reserving engine web site. It’s the trade’s main, invitation-only community of the world’s finest luxurious journey advisors, spanning over 26 international locations and 9,000 journey advisors. So whenever you e-book an Aman resort through Virtuoso, more often than not, you may be in contact with a Virtuoso journey agent who will make the reserving for you. There are some Virtuoso journey businesses although that provide a web based reserving device, comparable to Classic Travel, which has a wonderful web site and is my total most popular Virtuoso journey company for reserving an Aman resort (test the Classic Travel reserving web site beneath).

Booking an Aman Hotel through Virtuoso as a substitute of through the Aman web site has the next advantages:

  • The single finest motive to e-book an Aman Hotel by means of a Virtuoso journey agent is that it means worth for cash as you’ll get entry to complimentary VIP perks, comparable to room improve, versatile check-in and check-out instances, each day breakfast and a resort, spa, or meals credit score (or one thing else). While the precise perks differ from resort to resort, they will simply be price a couple of hundred {dollars} per evening.
  • In most instances, the Virtuoso charge is similar to the Best Available Rate (BAR) discovered on the official Aman web site, which is a versatile charge that may be cancelled with out penalty. For that motive, you’re leaving cash on the desk in the event you e-book a paid keep at the perfect out there charge (BAR) through the Aman web site and never through Virtuoso.


2. BOOK VIA THE AMAN WEBSITE

Except for the Best Available Rates (BAR) – that are at all times finest booked through a Virtuoso journey agent – it is sensible to test the Aman web site for any provides, packages or particular offers. You can test these offers by clicking on the “exclusives” tab on the highest of the web site of every Aman Hotel. Several forms of offers are supplied:

  • Single resort bundle offers require a multi-day keep at one property and often embody a reduction on the room charge and some advantages comparable to airport transfers and complimentary wellness therapies.
  • Multi-hotel bundle offers are supplied in locations the place Aman manages a number of properties in shut proximity to 1 one other (e.g. Sri Lanka, Indonesia, India, China, and Bhutan). The bundle offers often provide a reduced keep whenever you go to a number of motels throughout one itinerary along with complimentary transfers between the motels and few different advantages (e.g. spa therapies).

This web page on the official Aman web site exhibits an summary of all presently out there, Aman unique bundle offers. Let’s use Amanjiwo – one of many 4 ultraluxe motels that Aman manages in Indonesia – for instance.

  • When you’d e-book a room for one evening in July 2024 through the Amanjiwo web site, this might price you $1100 USD per evening (= Best Available Rate, which excludes taxes and breakfast). When you e-book the identical room through a Virtuoso journey agent, this can even price you $800 USD per evening however embody breakfast, early check-in, late check-out, a room improve, and a complimentary lunch for 2.
  • When you keep three nights at Amanjiwo as a substitute of 1, the room charges drops to $1000 USD per evening with the “Undiscovered Indonesia” deal. In addition to the unique low cost, each day breakfast and airport transfers are additionally included on this bundle.
  • Amanjiwo is positioned within the cultural heartland of Java. When you mix a keep at Amanjiwo with a keep at Amandari or Amankila on the legendary island of Bali and/or a keep at Amanwana, a tented camp on the serene nature reserve of Moyo Island, then you’ll get pleasure from further advantages and reductions with the “Bali&Beyond bundle“, together with each day breakfast at every resort, inter-resort transfers, full board at Amanwana, and one exercise per resort:
    • At Amankila: East Bali tour, trek or cycle tour
    • At Amandari: rice terrace trek, artwork & crafts tour, Ayung River trek, guided market tour or biking from Amandari to Ubud
    • At Amanjiwo: Guided tour of Borobudur, Javanese therapeutic massage, sundown martinis within the rice fields, hike within the Menoreh Hills, meditation in Mendut Temple or village tour by andong
    • At Amanwana: sundown cruise, starlight cruise, bat cave trek or Hera wall snorkeling


3. BOOK VIA YOUR CREDIT CARD CONCIERGE

When you personal an American Express bank card, you’ll be able to e-book nearly any Aman Hotel through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. This will give you kind of the identical advantages as whenever you would e-book the Aman Hotel through a Virtuoso journey agent:

  • Room improve upon arrival when out there
  • Daily (continental) breakfast for 2 folks
  • Guaranteed late 4pm check-out time
  • Noon check-in when out there
  • A spa, meals, and/or beverage credit score (valued at a minimal of US$ 100 USD)

When you personal a Citi Prestige Card (USA residents solely) you can also make use of the fourth evening free profit: whenever you e-book a 4 evening keep at an Aman property, you get reimbursed the price of the fourth evening, minus any taxes and repair charges. The fourth evening profit is calculated based mostly on the common nightly charge of your full keep. Reservations should be made by means of Thankyou.com or the Citi Prestige Concierge and you need to pay on your keep together with your Citi Prestige Card, ThankYou factors, or a mixture of the 2. There are some things to pay attention to, although:

  • You can solely use the fourth evening free profit when reserving the perfect out there charge (BAR), and never when reserving one of many Aman unique multi-day packages which regularly signify a a lot better deal.
  • You can’t mix the Citi Prestige fourth evening free with the advantages supplied through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts and/or Virtuoso. The latter usually signify a a lot better deal.
