Aman Hotel & Residences is an ultra-elite project by two renowned developers in the unique luxury area of Faena, located in Miami Beach. OKO Group CEO Vladislav Doronin and one of the developers of the Len Blavatnik area are reviving a magnificent condominium hotel on Collins Avenue on the site of the legendary Roy France Versailles hotel of the last century. Built in the 1940s, Versailles Miami was the epitome of the previous century luxury in Miami Beach. Today, a new standard of splendor rises in its place under the famous Aman brand.
The luxury resort brand Aman, which means “peace” in Sanskrit, is known for reviving UNESCO heritage sites into contemporary architectural masterpieces that retain the historical value and uniqueness of the original buildings while blending seamlessly with the modern urban or natural landscape that surrounds them.
The two crisp white 16-story towers of Aman Hotel & Residences will rise more than 65 meters (220 feet) above the vast, golden-colored Mid Beach. Built from scratch, the 67-meter tower condominium will offer 41 ultra-luxurious residences in a sophisticated building with a wave-like exterior. It blends harmoniously with Miami Beach's historic Art Deco streets and captures the essence of South Florida, washed by the waters of warm Biscayne Bay and the vast Atlantic. The redeveloped 61-meter high Versailles Hotel will combine 23 residences and 56 hotel rooms that epitomize the luxury and hospitality of the Aman Miami brand.
The leading architect is the renowned company Revuelta Architecture, which has in its portfolio such elite projects as Grovenor House, Il Villagio, Porto Vita South, 900 Biscayne, Azure, and other ultra-high-class residential buildings both in South Florida and beyond. The design of the condominium tower is being developed by Japanese designer-architect Kengo Kuma, known for his unique solutions and love for wood in interiors. His works include the new Tokyo National Stadium, built for the 2020 Summer Olympics, the ultra-elite Rolex tower in Dallas, and the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon. The concept of a condominium hotel in the former Versailles building is developed by the French designer Jean Michel Gati, famous for creating the richest interiors of five-star hotels around the world and for the unique use of the landscape from which he creates the real royal gardens.
Designed with every stunning detail of Faena's elite area in mind, the Aman Residences will set the standard for elegance and sophistication. Ultra-modern luxury will be embodied in the apartments, fully finished with high-quality materials, with an average area of about 220 square meters with European equipment.
Aman Hotel & Residences will provide everything for the super-luxurious life of its residents, taking care of every detail of the lofty and comfortable public areas. Here you will have at your disposal:
• five-star restaurant on the ground floor of the condominium tower;
• panoramic restaurant on the top floors of the condominium hotel;
• spacious roof terrace of the condominium hotel with a bar;
• unique spa that rivals the spas found in the finest resorts in Florida;
• panoramic lounge areas with green islands and high-quality furniture;
• underground parking.
The Faena area has been designed as the hub of Miami Beach's cultural and elite life. So, residents of Aman Hotel & Residences will have easy access to the exclusive Faena shopping area with a gourmet market and thorough screening of all incoming goods, the Art Center, and the Center for Community Events in the chic Faena Forum building. Only other elite condominiums and five-star hotels are located in the future Aman Hotel & Residences neighbourhood. The entire area is under video surveillance and guarded by professional services around the clock. The world-famous beaches of South Beach, high-end nightlife, world-class shopping on Lincoln Road, museums and art centers, which host the most significant cultural events in Miami Beach, are within walking distance for area residents.
The project will be the final part of the Faena neighborhood, which stretches on both sides of Collins Avenue from 32nd to 36th Streets, started in 2015 by Argentine developer Alan Faena.
