Preface

Dear travellers, Since the beginning of our label, fourteen years ago, we have elaborated a quality charter from the philosophy set up and naturally animated by each of our partner hotels. This common spirit is based on four points, namely: ‘Art de vivre’, Excellence, Exclusiveness and Privacy. Each year, we refine and enrich our collection of exclusive properties, to offer you an even more exclusive choice of unique hotels and resorts throughout the world, with now a selection of almost 110 properties. Of course, our time-honored partners, the Exclusive Island Hotels & Resorts remain the heart of this coffee table book, even if we now also feature exclusive city hotels, captivating desert resorts or stunning wilderness lodges. In 2020, we are pleased to present eleven new high-end properties in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, in the Phinda Reserve in South Africa, four unique properties in Thailand (Hua Hin, Phuket and Krabi), on the island of Con Dao in Vietnam, on the Caribbean Coast of Mexico, on the exclusive St. Barthelemy island in the Caribbean, as well as our two first properties located in the heart of the Finnish Lapland ; all designed to make your every stay a unique experience. We also feature our closest local travel partners, specialized in custom-made luxury travel and leaders in their area, including Southern and Eastern Africa, the Seychelles, the Middle East, South-East Asia, Mauritius and French Polynesia. They assist us with their destination knowledge and expertise to finalize your tailor-made journey.

Morocco Marrakech

Amanjena

Amanjena, or ‘peaceful paradise’, is the first Aman on the African continent. The property is located just outside the ancient Moroccan city of Marrakech on the southern road to Ouarzazate, the gateway to the Sahara Desert. The High Atlas Mountains claim the Marrakech horizon and the Atlantic coast is just two hours away. A 27-hole Championship Golf Course lies immediately alongside Amanjena, with two other courses, the Royal Golf Course and the Al Maaden Golf Course, just minutes away. Known in Arabic as Al Medina al-Hamra, the ‘Red City’, due to its rosy-hued walls and structures, Marrakech was the inspiration for Amanjena’s design. The resort’s walls and Moroccan luxury villas echo the city’s old pisé (rammed earth) buildings as well as the Berber villages that cling to the High Atlas Mountains. Green is also a predominant colour in the oasis of Marrakech – the colour of Islam, paradise, royalty and abundance. The colour of nature gilds Amanjena, too: its lawns and vines, its emerald-clay roofs, Moroccan marble fountains and the dazzle of hand-cut, glazed tiles known as zellij.

Plan an excursion in the High Atlas mountains, with its ancient mosques, crumbling kasbahs and cliffside Berber villages. Spend the day at the white-washed village of Essaouira, on the Atlantic coast.

Bhutan Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey & Bumthang

Amankora Combining the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’ with kora or ‘circular pilgrimage’ in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora is a series of lodges across the central and western valleys of Bhutan. The sole surviving Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom, Bhutan is located between the Tibetan Plateau and India, making it one of the most remote and pristine environments on earth. Descending from 7,000-metre high peaks in the north to the low-lying plains of the south, Bhutan’s rivers have forged deep valleys separated by high mountain passes. Historically isolated, each valley’s scenic beauty and topography affords visitors an opportunity for unique journeys of discovery between them. To best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amankora can tailor journeys that include a combination of its lodges located in the valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang.

Cambodia Siem Reap

Amansara Situated in Siem Reap, the cultural capital of Cambodia, just 10 minutes from the entrance to the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amansara was once the guest villa of King Norodom Sihanouk. Today the walled garden compound serves as a tranquil 24-suite Angkor Wat luxury resort with the ambience of a gracious home. Amansara is the ideal base for travellers seeking to explore Khmer culture and the majestic ruins of Angkor. A variety of Cambodia temple excursions and cultural walks is available as part of the guest experience. Amansara derives its name from the twinning of the words ‘aman’ (Sanskrit for ‘peace’) and ‘apsara’, the heavenly nymphs of ancient Hindu texts. The apsaras, it is said, emerged from the primordial churning of the oceans with the power not only to change their form at will, but also to bestow luck on those they favoured. So all-embracing was their influence on Cambodian mythology and its numerous expressions, that delicate apsara basreliefs decorate practically every Angkor temple.

Amantaka

Amantaka derives its name from the word aman, the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’, and from Tipitaka, meaning ‘the teaching of the Buddha’ in Theravada scholastic literature. The resort is located just south of Mount Phousi in the centre of the picturesque Luang Prabang peninsula. Within walking distance of the many boutiques, bakeries and restaurants along the main street, Amantaka is also close to the banks of the Mekong River and to Luang Prabang’s fabled night market. The resort provides access to the town’s many historic sites including more than 30 golden-spired temples and the former Royal Palace, a classic example of the town’s unique blend of 19th and 20th century French colonial and Lao architectural traditions.

Sri Lanka Galle

Amangalla Amangalla is a gracious resort on Sri Lanka’s fabled south coast, housed within the colonial-era buildings of the Galle Fort. The oldest continuously operating hotel in Asia, having first opened its doors as the New Oriental Hotel in 1863, it reflects the elegance of the colonial period dating back to the 1600s, when Dutch settlers strolled the town’s cobbled streets. Being welcomed inside Amangalla’s Great Hall, or Zaal, as it was known by the Dutch, is like stepping back in time. Its soaring fin de siècle ceilings, overhead fans and chandeliers, not to mention the veranda facing the tree-lined street, speak of days when travel was a past-time enjoyed only by a fortunate few. The hotel features many of its original furniture pieces including four-poster beds and pettagama chests. It also provides the perfect base for exploring the rich heritage of the town and the scenic countryside and picturesque villages around Galle, as well as the wildlife reserves and beaches of southwest Sri Lanka.

St. Vincent & The Grenadines Canouan Island

Mandarin Oriental, Canouan The Caribbean is blessed with beautiful beaches, stunning seascapes and a relaxed way of life. Yet some islands still stand out from the rest. Perhaps because their sand is just that little bit whiter, their water is just that little bit bluer and their clocks are just that little bit slower. Canouan is such a place. An island only recently introduced to the 21st century, but now setting the standards for tropical beach hotels around the world… Located on a beach-fringed private estate in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, Mandarin Oriental, Canouan is both unashamedly romantic and wickedly glamorous.

Finland Saariselkä, Lapland

Star Arctic Hotel In the early 2016, two families who shared the same passion decided to establish a hotel on the top of the Kaunispää mountain in Saariselkä. Why? The reason is simple – they are in love with this Arctic region. The beauty of Finnish Lapland is so pure and powerful, like when the wildness is bathing in the aureate light of the midnight sun or the Aurora Borealis dancing in the sky. Here, it’s like living in a dream from which you don’t want to wake up, a spell you are completely mesmerized by. Therefore, the hotel wants to share their love with you by connecting you with the best that Lapland has to offer. To get the best view of the Northern Lights and overlooking landscape, all Suites have a duplex structure with large glass windows. All of the Aurora Glass Cabins face north and have glass ceilings over beds. The glass roof covers half of the cabin, providing guests with unspoiled sky views. All the rooms are architecturally designed in a way that guests can conveniently watch northern lights, when they appear.

One such bay on the Bodrum Peninsula is home to Amanruya, a tranquil all-season resort.
