Amanresorts celebrates 20 years with new book

Filed by Lucire staff/December 12, 2008/22.49

Aman² book photograph by Basil Pao

Our friends at Amanresorts have launched a book celebrating their 20th anniversary, called Aman².
   This third custom-published book, photographed by Hong Kong-based Basil Pao, reveals the spirit behind Amanresorts properties from the Himalayas to Caribbean reefs. At 264 pp., the hard-bound book is available for US$88 on
   Pao has tried to capture the people at the resorts and how each property fits in to its community and environment. In some cases, he has revisited and met up with people he photographed a decade ago for an earlier Amanresorts book.
   Since the introduction of the flagship Amanpuri on the west coast of Phuket, Thailand, in 1988, Amanresorts has quietly grown to encompass 19 extraordinary properties around the world. Founded by hospitality visionary Adrian Zecha, the company was designed as a collection of intimate retreats in beautiful surroundings with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a private residence.

  • I actually ordered this recently and can’t wait. Aman has purchased a large 2000 acre estate here in Bovina New York in the Catskill Mountains.

    Maybe someday we will be in the next edition…
