Aman Kyoto – in the tranquil forested region of Takagamine - is situated on grounds which were once part of an artistic community that gave rise to the revered Rinpa school of painting, over 400 years ago. The luxury resort is nestled within a beautiful garden landscape with stone slabs blanketed in moss and whimsical winding pathways through the forests.
The resort offers a secluded two-bed pavilion, luxury suites and opulent rooms. All accommodation consists of large floor-to-ceiling windows to allow natural light to flood the rooms and showcase the spectacular views of the gardens and mountains in the distance.
With fine ingredients sourced locally The Living Pavilion offers a wonderful dining experience. Enjoy both Western dishes and simple Obanzai Ryori - a traditional style of Japanese cuisine native to Kyoto and an ever-changing seasonal menu. On a chilly day warm yourself by the fireplace in the central dining space, or in warmer weather dine in the breathtaking garden terrace. Aman Kyoto will also design a personalised hamper for you to take into the fruitful forest for a picnic.
Aman Kyoto is the ideal resort for a relaxing, body-nourishing and mind-healing experience. The spa has three private treatment suites and a relaxing lounge and offers treatments that incorporate local Japanese healing ingredients and practices. Yoga and mindfulness sessions are also held in the gardens for the ultimate opportunity to unwind.
Set within a beautiful garden landscape with winding pathways through the forests, Aman Kyoto offers the ultimate tranquil getaway.
