My vision is for the Janu brand to trailblaze a new direction in hospitality

Aman’s sister brand Janu will launch its flagship property in Tokyo in March 2024, complete with a 4,000sq m urban wellness retreat.

Meaning ‘soul’ in Sanskrit, Janu is a hotel, residence and lifestyle brand based on social connection, equilibrium and human interaction.

With reservations now open for bookings in March, the first Janu will feature 122 rooms and suites, eight dining venues, two boutiques and extensive spa, wellness and fitness facilities.

Much like Aman, Janu will have a strong emphasis on wellness but its distinctive wellness concept will focuses on enhancing individual wellbeing through the concept of connectedness and the notion of the shared social experience.

Wellness facilities

Janu Tokyo’s nine-treatment-room spa will offer a hydrotherapy and thermal area anchored by a 25-metre heated lap pool, a separate lounge pool – traditionally a place for socialising in Japan – as well as two signature private Spa Houses with cold and hot plunge pools, banyas and hammams.

A recovery studio with a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber will also be available.

Fitness forms a major pillar of Janu’s wellness philosphy which led the Tokyo outpost to be completed with one of the city's largest gyms (340 sq m).

Additional facilities will include five movement studios for group exercise – including the only boxing ring located within a Tokyo hotel – as well as facilities for spinning, personal training, recovery and relaxation.

For those not staying at the hotel, Janu Tokyo will also offer Wellness Collective memberships enabling access to its facilities, programming and an exclusive members-only lounge.

Aman CEO Vladislav Doronin said: "The arrival of Janu Tokyo signifies a pivotal moment in Aman Group's progression – not only introducing the energetic spirit of Janu for the very first time – but also representing the evolution and enduring strength of Aman.

“As we unveil this new concept in one of the world's greatest cities, my vision is for the Janu brand to trailblaze a new direction in hospitality whilst preserving, upholding and following in the illustrious footsteps of its legendary sibling Aman.”

Janu Tokyo’s unveiling will be the first in a 12-strong global pipeline of projects across city, country and coastal destinations.

Sense of placeThe upcoming destination is connected to the new Azabudai Hills – a mixed-use urban district created and managed by Japan’s leading developer Mori Building Co as part of a 30-year urban regeneration project.

A progressive new neighbourhood designed by architectural firm Heatherwick Studios, Azabudai Hills is described as a city within a city, abundant in nature, culture and art. The location features Japan’s tallest skyscraper and 24,000sq m of green space designed by founder Thomas Heatherwick, alongside offices, residences, educational institutions, galleries and over 150 luxury retail and dining outlets including a Japanese food market.

The only hotel within the development, Janu Tokyo is located in the Residence A Tower designed by architects, Pelli Clarke & Partners.

Design details

Janu Tokyo reveals itself with a lofty gallery and reception, where a sense of space is fostered through the considered use of glass and textured mouldings that reflect soft, glowing light.

Above, a ceiling embellished with intricate lattice woodwork and rows of woven rope arches (a modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese technique of shimenawa) connects guests from street level into the soul of Janu.

“Janu Tokyo’s DNA exudes a youthful energy, brimming with liveliness and playfulness that sets it apart from the poised and composed character of Aman,” comments architect Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston, the firm responsible for the hotel’s interior design.

“The space is a thrilling exploration of textures, colours and design elements that awaken the senses and ignite the imagination.”
