Janu Tokyo will open this autumn

Janu, the sister brand of luxury hotel group Aman, will open its first – and hotly anticipated – hotel this autumn. Translated as ‘soul’ in Sanskrit, Janu aims to deliver an elevated guest experience akin to Aman, while providing a more social environment to Aman’s sophisticated seclusion.

Situated in the newly created Azabudai Hills (thirty years in the making), Janu Tokyo will feature 122 guest rooms and one of the largest wellness facilities in the city.

Claiming 13 floors in total, all of the hotel’s rooms boast interiors by long-term Aman collaborator Jean-Michel Gathy, with the majority having private balconies with views of the iconic Tokyo Tower or surrounding greenery. Janu Tokyo also will be home to six restaurants, while the 4,000sqm Janu Wellness Centre will feature an extensive hydrotherapy and thermal area housing a 25-metre heated lap pool, separate lounge pool, and two Spa Houses.

Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman and Janu, said: “The development and creation of Janu has been born from Aman Group’s long-term strategic vision, responding to the demand from our wider cohort of guests and the luxury traveller for the hallmarks of the Aman offering in terms of service and excellent design, but with a different pace and spirit. There is great appetite in the market for experiences and destinations which encourage connection, adventure, and memorable interactions. Janu has been designed to cater to this increasing demand, seeking pioneering destinations which have an energy and vibrancy reflecting the values of the brand for our first outpost. Being part of the Azabudai Hills project sets the benchmark for the brand and all other Janus to come and, with Janu Tokyo a fitting flagship, we can connect to the heart of this vibrant community and an inspirational ‘new world’ hub of culture and art.”
