Aman plans growth in India, Asia, Europe and North America

Singapore-based Aman is planning to open new properties in India, Asia, Europe and North America, Aman CEO Olivier Jolivet said. “Our priority is to commence the first property in Shanghai and fourth in China by early next year. And then in Japan,” he told the Hindu.

Currently, the hotel group operates 31 resorts in 20 countries.

Noting the value of India as a market, Jolivet said that New Delhi and Mumbai "are definitely our target cities" for new properties. "We are also exploring main cities everywhere,” he said.
