Amanpulo staff are getting the Philippines-based resort ship-shape.
Luxury hospitality group Aman has announced it will be reopening its shuttered resorts from this month.
Aman has 32 hotels and resorts in 20 destinations around the world. It opened its first property, Amanpuri, meaning place of peace, in Phuket in 1988. It has a further eight resorts in the pipeline.
The group says it has taken all appropriate steps in line with World Health Organisation guidance and local government authorities to start welcoming back guests.
Aman has grown a reputation for secluded retreats in some of the world’s most remote locations. From the lofty peaks of Bhutan to the reefs of Indonesia’s Flores Sea, the brand’s peaceful sanctuaries tend to be removed from well-trodden tourist trails.
Low room count, standalone pavilions with private pools and subtle service create an ideal post-coronavirus holiday hideaway.
“In navigating this new world, we will continue to place our guests and staff at the centre of everything that we do and feel safe in the knowledge that guests will find their sanctuary, a sense of calm and familiarity in our ‘places of peace’,” Aman said in a statement.
