Cannot believe they wouldn't pay for the transport and use of the facility at the other hotel seeing they do not have any fitness facilities. Very surprising. [/QUOTE]


Sean F is well aware & has been addressing the many issues since he has arrived , this being one ..

He has been working with “ constraints “ and in this unique “ grande dame “ property Galla - Galle being UNESCO heritage site - being here one can understand .
From what was mentioned it will be complimentary too . There is now a new hotel which is closer and has a better gym than Jetwing Lighthouse .

Will do a TR soon

Wonder when VD will install his new Aman super spa there? Fitness should be no problem!

I agree on the yoga at Galle. It was the best yoga session I've ever had (it was an older, Caucasian man...incredible)

do you mean the multi resort packages, like Bali and Beyond? Or just the multi night exclusives that some of the resorts offer?

either way, any virtuoso agent can book those I think. Some agents will work a little harder and get you upgrades at booking.

Seeing all the posts on social media about the Atma by Aman event in Venice (it appears the Aman PR girls where out in full force) I‘m just really really glad I skipped this. What an odd event, odd crowd, just seemed very un-Aman to me. But each to her/his own, I guess...

Slide show by Corriere della Sera for those interested

In other news...

Dior to hold its Cruise show on April 29 at Amanjena. This is the first time the maison is doing an event in Morocco.

FS is also rather busy during this time with sky-high rates.

If you look at Claudia’s weird 4:00 am Instagram posts you’ll see why she’s too busy to respond...

Must have gone private for the bad optics or my Aman clearance is too low.
