A strong and aligned force, Aman’s leadership team is a group of devoted individuals with the common goal of maintaining the brand’s inimitable space in the world of hospitality and beyond. For three decades they have worked as custodians of Aman’s ever-present pathfinder spirit, providing platforms from which to discover the world through a unique lens. 

Vlad Doronin - Owner, Chairman and CEO

Vlad Doronin acquired Aman in 2014 with the desire to uphold the brand’s unique vision and experience, while also expanding its offering to guarantee its longevity and success. He is focused on protecting the pillars that define Aman – from consummate privacy to exceptional service, sensitive architecture, and pioneering locations - while also constantly working to meet the changing needs of the Aman guest. This has resulted in a focus upon urban properties – Aman Tokyo, Aman New York, Aman Nai Lert Bangkok (2024), Aman Beverly Hills (2027), Aman Miami Beach (2026) and Aman Dubai (coming soon) – as well as new resort locations – Amanvari in Mexico (2025), Niseko in Japan (2027) and AlUla (2026) and Wadi Safar (2027) in Saudi Arabia - and pioneering projects such as Aman at Sea (2027). 

He also has a deep commitment to the development of the Aman lifestyle and transformational experiences for guests. This gentle evolution of Aman has seen an elevated approach to holistic wellbeing, the launch of several culinary concepts, including Nama and Arva, plus the development of Aman Spa Candles, Aman Fine Fragrance, Aman Skincare and most recently Sva, a range of herbal supplements.

Mr Doronin’s international real estate development firm, OKO Group, based in Miami and New York, also supports the growth and development of the Aman brand, and is currently working on the construction of new hotels and resorts, including Aman Miami Beach (2026). Under the leadership of Mr Doronin, Aman continues to raise the bar for luxury hospitality with its uncompromisingly bespoke approach to service, attention to detail and exceptional locations. 

Executive team members

Supporting Mr Doronin, Aman’s senior leadership team operates across corporate offices in London, Switzerland, New York, Bangkok, Singapore and Dubai. Their combined experience spans some of the world’s finest hotel groups and luxury brands, which is cumulated at Aman with a joint goal of driving performance and growth across the portfolio.
