Good news for fans of super high-end luxury hotel chain Aman Resorts. The Miami Herald is reporting that the hotel and resort group will open a hotel and residences in Miami.

According to the report, the Aman Miami project will be built on Collins Avenue in the trendy Faena district, on the former site of the Versailles Hotel in Miami Beach. No firm details yet on cost or even number of rooms from the chain with a reputation of being the best of the best.  Miami developer OKO Group is working on the project with several other firms.

The Aman chain currently has 34 resorts, hotels and private residences around the world.

If the Miami plans bear fruit, the chain will have four locations in the United States. Those locations include two already opened — The Amangiri in Utah and the Amangani in Wyoming — and a project currently in the works for New York City.

Earlier this year, New York Yimby reported the hotel chain was adding a hotel and residences in New York City. The historic Crown Building at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street will be partially converted into the new Aman New York. There will be 83 guest rooms, three restaurants and a 25,000-square-foot spa. According to Aman, it is set to open in 2020. The New York property is also being developed by OKO Group.

Just a few weeks ago, we learned the super luxe chain was launching a new private jet service called “Aman Private Jet.” Aman will allow customers to travel between resorts and will even create custom itineraries for passengers on the Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft. Talk about aspirational. There’s stiff competition in this space with Four Seasons offering similar services.
