Also, looking at the website, it appears that every single Deluxe Hillside Casista and every single Treetop Pool Casista is fully booked through July 2020, but that may just be an error on my end. If it isn't erroneous (either fully booked or there are renovations going on or for whatever reason the rooms are unavailable), a full resort buyout wouldn't even be possible.

They don't show those two room types online in the booking system.

I'm sure a discount can be negotiated as well for a buyout. I've seen a few celebrities from South Korea buyout a week at Pulo for birthday parties.
My invite must've gotten lost

designed by Ed Tuttle well before the time of iPhones, Instagram, and even the Internet.

Gathy believes Aman has been most influential in creating a market for a product marrying aesthetics and lifestyle, which has given rise to many copycats attempting this principle.

makes sense re taka, as it was only ever regarded here for service, not design

tuttle born 1945 , gathy born 1955 , zecha born 1933

wonder if any hope for another owned by canyon equity done by tuttle or giri team
they may still own 101 acres in malibu canyon, and '400 year old' mexican hacienda

Just to fill in the gaps, Amanpulo was designed by Francisco 'Bobby' Manosa - a Filipino architect.

Amantaka was designed by Pascal Trahan, who then went on to design Azerai Luang Prabang and Azerai Can Tho for Adrian Zecha.

They're a bit slow-moving. I've finally got the F&B menus but not activities, spa, or private dining.

I'd go straight to the top and completely bypass the generic email.

Meals can be enjoyed wherever you please , as with all Amans . Each villa has at least one dining area . The entire second level of a main building is a rather expansive living area that has a separate part with a “ bar “ & dining space .
Look at some of the photos I posted .
Can possibly add more to the TR if I figure out how .

Villa owners decide how many of their suites can be used by Aman guests who decide to stay at a Nusa Villa , the number of suites available are then reflected as we see . The villa can potentially have 6 suites or more but only for owners ‘ stay .

Do pm me if you have questions
I see you reply to many inquiries RE: Aman Resorts. Do you work for them? or are you just a “junkie” of the highest degree? 🤣🤣🤣
