At a time where travel is restricted in many countries and congregating in crowded airports is a big no-no, Aman Private Jet and Aman Jet Expeditions have stepped in to offer independent travel at its finest. Partnering up with Remote Lands, you can enjoy all that travelling has to offer with uncurtailed access in privacy and comfort to the world’s most remote and beautiful destinations.
Destinations offered by commercial airlines can be crowded and offer the usual sights. But Aman resort’s locations are often least travelled and the most naturally pristine and culturally intact. At these retreats, the culturally integrated sanctuaries are not just for guests, but for staff and neighbouring communities.
Meticulously designed to frame their natural settings, Aman destinations are renowned for space and privacy. Each welcomes guests as if to the home of a close friend, instilling a sense of peace and belonging amid some of the most diverse natural and historical landscapes.
It is an approach that has changed little since 1988 when the first retreat was built on Phuket’s west coast. It was named Amanpuri, meaning ‘place of peace’, and Aman was born.
Today, Aman embraces 32 resorts, hotels, and private residences in 20 countries. Aman continues to seek out transformative experiences and awe-inspiring locations around the world with a further eight coming soon, taking the brand to 40 resorts in 22 countries.
These are bespoke private jet journeys planned around your interests, preferences and expectations. These journeys are executed using the expertise and services of Aman Jet concierge, with comforts of flying Aman’s Bombadier Global 5000 and staying at Aman global portfolio of 32 resorts.
These journeys are planned exclusively for your private group of family and/or friends. No strangers on these journeys, warranting absolute privacy and comfort.

In this Blog I will highlight below two fixed date small group guided expeditions for 2021:
Bali to Luang Prabang
During May 2021, up to 16 guests can join this exclusive expedition through Southeast Asia, travelling north from Indonesia to Laos by private jet and staying exclusively in Aman properties. Experience Bali’s coastline and verdant interior off the beaten track; watch the sun rise over Borobudur in Central Java and Angkor Wat in Siem Reap; and savour the cuisine and natural magnificence of Vietnam’s Vinh Hy Bay. This soul-soothing, heart-stirring expedition will culminate in the peaceful Unesco-protected town of Luang Prabang with its golden wats and saffron-robed monks.
Amandari, Ubud, Bali
Perched above the verdant Ayung River Gorge amid rice paddies and indigenous forest, Amandari rests close to Bali’s artistic centre of Ubud. A serene retreat, it reflects the island’s gentle hospitality and deep spirituality.
Enjoy two full days discovering Bali’s lush interior, complemented by a cooking experience and dinner at the ARMA Museum with a guest speaker.
Amankila, Karangasem, Bali
Overlooking the Lombok Strait, Amankila claims an emerald-hued hillside, a serene coconut grove and a secluded black-sand beach in the protective shadow of Mount Agung. It is the only resort of its kind in East Bali, a region known for its royal legacy and natural beauty.
Spend two full days at leisure, perhaps exploring the water palaces, temples and artisanal villages nearby. A private yacht excursion with lunch will offer the opportunity to snorkel the Strait’s pristine reefs.
Amanjiwo, Central Java, Indonesia
Embracing panoramic views of the Kedu Plain, its ring of volcanoes on the horizon and the ancient Buddhist temple of Borobudur, Amanjiwo is a regal sanctuary ideally positioned to experience Central Java’s cultural heartland.
Over the course of two nights, become fully immersed in the culture and warmth of this welcoming region. A full day of exploration will begin with sunrise at Borobudur.
Amansara, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Just a 10-minute drive from the entrance to Angkor’s remarkable temples and the forest that hid them for centuries, Amansara is a tranquil garden estate, once a private home of the late King Norodom Sihanouk.
With your own private guide and remork driver, experience the temples of Angkor over the course of two full days. Highlights are sure to include sunrise over Angkor Wat, a helicopter excursion, an Eric Raisina fashion show, Ravynn’s Dance Conservatoire and a private temple dinner.
Amanoi, Vinh Hy Bay, Vietnam
Backed by Nui Chua National Park on the shores of the East Sea, Amanoi enjoys spectacular seclusion on Vietnam’s dramatic coastline, with cliff-top guest pavilions and a sophisticated private Beach Club.
Relax on the beach, and swim or snorkel in the protected waters of Vinh Hy Bay – with the option to explore the national park on a guided trek. Your two nights here will also include a complimentary spa treatment, an atmospheric lunch in the local fishing village and a starlit dinner on the beach.
Amantaka, Luang Prabang, Laos
On the banks of the fabled Mekong River, Luang Prabang is an idyllic town with a palpable aura of peace and spirituality. Amantaka is a garden estate at its centre, close to Mount Phousi, the convivial bakeries and restaurants of the main street, and the colourful night market.
Join the early morning almsgiving as monks receive their daily bread from pious locals, explore the town and its natural surrounds, and experience a meaningful Baci ceremony after dinner on your final night.

Surrender to the healing touch of the spa’s expert therapists and dine on the finest Vietnamese fare. A farewell dinner on the beach will round off your stay.
Amantaka, Luang Prabang, Laos, 8-9 November 2021
The pace of Luang Prabang is seductively slow. Observe the ebb and flow of the mighty Mekong River and flashes of saffron as Buddhist monks tread silently between temples in Laos’ spiritual capital, a well-preserved Unesco World Heritage Site. At the foot of sacred Mount Phousi, Amantaka’s historic French colonial buildings retain their era’s genteel grace amid lush gardens, while private pools and an expansive spa keep contemporary souls in their comfort zone. A traditional Baci ceremony will bless your arrival, and a personal guide will help you discover the town’s historic treasures from the Royal Palace to iconic temples. A boat trip on the Mekong to Pak Ou Cave – full of Buddhist statues, a hike to the village of Ban Muang Khaeo, visiting rescued elephants and witnessing the traditional almsgiving ceremony at dawn are sure to be highlights.
Amansara, Siem Riep, Cambodia, 10-11 November 2021
Once a residence for guests of the King, Amansara rests in serene seclusion just minutes from Angkor’s fabled temples. A verdant sanctuary with two swimming pools, a tranquil spa, peaceful roof terrace and 24 suites, Amansara is the ideal base for exploring the remarkable Unesco-protected ruins and experiencing Khmer culture. Witness sunrise gilding Angkor Wat, count the many stone faces of Jayavarman VII on Bayon, and marvel at the giant strangler figs holding Ta Prohm firmly in their embrace. A Khmer fashion show and cocktails will celebrate your first evening, while your last day will begin with a helicopter tour of Angkor and culminate in a candlelit temple dinner on the grounds of Banteay Samre.
Amanpuri, Phuket, Thailand, 12-14 November 2021
Claiming an entire peninsula and its own private beach on Phuket’s picture-perfect west coast, Amanpuri rests in a mature coconut grove with incomparable views of the Andaman Sea. Home to the first Aman Spa and a medical grade Holistic Wellness Centre, the resort offers a Beach Club, globally influenced venues for dining and entertainment and a fleet of yachts for water-based adventures.
