Hidden in a valley lies an ancient Chinese village converted into the peaceful, Amanfayun Resort. Walking into the acres of natural forests, beautiful tea fields and wooden bamboo trees is like walking into a setting from fairy tale. The traditional stone pathways lead to 100 year old houses, lush courtyards, and quiet restaurants. Explore eastern China’s most beautiful paradise while staying in a secluded treasure of luxury boutique accommodations.
Amanfayun comprises 47 comfortable and spacious courtyard dwellings, each boasting traditional Chinese decor and magnificent views of the flourishing landscape that encompass the grounds. The dwellings were restored to keep the original natural charm by having clay tile roofs, brick and earth walls, and light timber structures. The 42 rooms, suites, and villas are completely unique, with no two rooms being identical. In the cooler months, enjoy the comfort of having under-floor heating and air conditioning in the warm months. Open the cottage-like windows to let the fresh air soothe the mind and soul. For an extra treat, book the Deluxe Village Suite or Village Villas for a private double massage treatment room for ultimate privacy.
The classic interiors are built on stone tiles which extend to the main pathway that runs through the property. Located in the center of Amanfayun is Fayun Place, two courthouses built in the 1800s that are used as the main meeting area. Here guests find a cigar room, a lounging area, and the library. The Restaurant which sits quietly surrounded by lush greenery, serves Western and international dishes. For casual dining, enjoy the authentic Steam House for traditional Chinese famous for steamed dumplings and village-style dishes. In addition, there are three independently-operated eateries available including the Hangzhou House, Tea House, and Vegetarian House, all serving classic and innovative meals.
Within this heaven of tranquility, guests will find the glorious Aman Spa. Consisting of five separate areas and a heated swimming pool, the area is made up of the reception and reflexology house, the bath house, the fitness center, the finishing salon, and the treatment house, all enhanced by blooming magnolia trees and shaded cobblestone courtyards. Experience remarkable Chinese healing treatments and famous ancient foot massages while letting go of stress and worry.
Once off the grounds, beautiful Hangzhou awaits. Walking around this picturesque city is like roaming a never-ending secret garden. Take a traditional row-boat around the UNESCO Heritage Site of West Lake and visit the many fabled pagodas, bridges, and islands. Bicycling around the lake is another popular way to soak in all of the natural beauty. Hangzhou is widely accepted as the “Tea Capital of China” and guests are welcome to visit the tea museum or one of the city’s many working tea plantations.Request Information
