On behalf of Aman, we are delighted to highlight the brand’s flagship property in Phuket, Amanpuri as it leads the culinary vision across the collection. Amanpuri has introduced three new culinary concepts to its restaurants and an innovative new Wellness Menu to support the Wellness Immersions. Leading Aman’s culinary vision with renowned chefs at the helm, Amanpuri now offers guests and non-residents the opportunity to experience Phuket’s abundance of natural produce in gastronomic fare from three different continents, as well as a Wellness Menu crafted by famed raw vegan chefs Ben Flowerday and Dean Gleeson.
The first of Aman’s culinary concepts, Nama, launched at Amanpuri in March 2017, explores the intricate techniques of Washoku from Japan, while Aman’s second culinary concept Arva, celebrates the bold flavours and simple ingredients of Italy’s rich culinary heritage. Arva, befittingly launched at Aman Venice in October 2017 and has now too opened its doors at Amanpuri. Unique to Amanpuri, The Lounge delivers the spirit and vibrancy of Central and South American cuisine and nightlife to Amanpuri’s shores. Nama, Arva and The Lounge join Amanpuri’s existing restaurant – The Terrace with its emphasis on authentic Thai cuisine, and the Beach Club, which serves a casual Mediterranean-inspired menu just steps from the sand.
As both Amanpuri and Aman approach their 30th anniversary, the launch of Nama and Arva represent the beginning of a significant, new gastronomic chapter for the brand. Nama and Arva will continue to launch thoughtfully selected Aman destinations worldwide in 2018, with their menus subtly adjusted according to the ingredient possibilities presented by each locale.
