Destination Guide

Consisting of a series of standalone pavilions, Aman Kyoto has six Guest Pavilions housing 26 guest rooms. Aman Kyoto’s latticed pavilions are a contemporary homage to the traditional Japanese ryokan inn, minimalist in their geometry, and each serving as a window onto their spectacular natural surroundings. Offering six room categories, including two ‘presidential suites’ located in the Washigamine and Takagamine Pavilions, all accommodation at Aman Kyoto offers leafy seclusion with garden views, and supreme privacy.
Susuki, Nara, Kaede & Hotaru Pavilion
The Susuki, Nara, Kaede and Hotaru pavilions all encompass 60 square metre rooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the beautiful garden and forest views. The large ofuro bathtubs in each guest room have been crafted from hinoki cypress wood, native to central Japan.
Washigamine & Takagamine Pavilion
The Washigamine and Takagamine Pavilions are named after two mountains in the surrounding national parks of Kyoto and are located at the highest, most secluded point of the property. Offering extensive views over the surrounding forested landscape, each pavilion, houses two en-suite bedrooms, separate living and dining areas, kitchen, and tatami room.

The resort’s Japanese restaurant, honours the legacy of artist Honami Koetsu (1558-1637), who helped shape the culture and creative life of Takagamine, the area in which Aman Kyoto resides, by creating an artist’s colony there. Honami Koetsu was considered a national treasure of his time and was a craftsman, potter, lacquerer, and calligrapher and whose work is considered to have inspired the founding of the Rinpa school of painting. 

Taka-an is a culinary homage to this heritage and serves as an invitation to experience the authentic Japanese art of hospitality, in which every element – atmosphere, design, and cuisine – work in harmony and are in perfect balance. Strictly seasonal, chef-selected ingredients are prepared and served with meticulous precision, to serve dishes that transform Kyoto’s local produce into works of gastronomic art. This restaurant also houses two private dining rooms.
The Living Pavilion by Aman
Resting at the heart of the resort is the convivial Living Pavilion by Aman with its central fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto an ornate terrace overlooking the Kerry Hill garden. With beautiful views of the surrounding gardens and forest, the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, both to guests of the resort and non-residents (with advance reservations). At the helm is Executive Chef, Kentaro Torii serving home-cooked Kyoto-style cuisine, and innovative Western dishes. With 16 years of experience in Japan and internationally, Chef Kentaro uses only local and ‘in season’ ingredients, many of which are sourced from the hotels very own garden, giving guests the experience of being at one with nature with his cuisine. 
In-Room Dining
In-room dining is available from 7:00 AM until 11:00 PM.
