The super chic Aman brand makes its debut in one of the world’s global cities with the opening of Aman Tokyo. Occupying the top six floors of the recently-built Otemachi Tower this five star urban sanctuary sits high above the buzzing metropolis with predictably fantastic views.

Miranda and Carrie are here to help give you the inside track.

The design is archetypal Aman - minimalist, sleek and totally chic. The décor is a mix of modern fabrics and influences from traditional Japanese residential structures, using materials such as Washi paper, exposed stonework and timber. The 84 guest rooms are by all accounts larger than those in other luxury hotels in Tokyo and promise to impress with open plan designs, deep Japanese soaking baths and sensational vistas.

With more Michelin stars than any other city, the rumours are true - Tokyo is a foodie paradise, and the Restaurant by Aman isn't a bad place to put this to the test. Located on the 33rd floor the restaurant specialises in Mediterranean cuisine, Asian delicacies and Japanese classics such as mouth-watering sushi and super fresh sashimi. Wine connoisseurs will love the Aman's walk-in wine cellar which will stock 1,200 wines.

When not exploring this most special of cities guests will want to relax in the Aman Spa, a spot of almost zen-like calm with elegant treatment rooms, therapies using soothing aromatherapy oils, yoga, steam baths and a 30 metre swimming pool.

Why we love it
