Luxury Holidays At Amanfayun

Amanfayun, a former Tang Dynasty village, is peacefully located in a valley just a twenty-minute drive from the centre of Hangzhou, near to the West Lake, and is adjacent to two temples, Lingyin and Yongfu. Its forty-two stone and timber-built, traditionally styled rooms, suites and villas are set within an old Chinese community, encased by forested valleys, bamboo groves and Magnolia trees within a region of Buddhist temples and sloping tea fields. References to ancient China are abundant here, with each outbuilding decorated with dark wood and calligraphy adorning the walls, whilst modern conveniences - such as iPods, iPod docking stations and televisions - are available on request for guests who just can't leave the modern world behind. Awaken to enjoy a spot of morning yoga in the fitness centre, visit the boutique to peruse the antiques, jewellery and handmade silk parasols, enjoy a temple visit or indulge in a spa treatment at the Aman Spa - complete with a traditional bath house - before finishing the day with tea-sampling and whimsical tales told by the Chinese Tea Lady.

Property Highlights:expand_more
Culture & History

Amanfayun sits nestled in a valley near West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its tranquil shores lined with fragrant lotus blossoms and verdant trees. Delve into Chinese culture and history as you chant with the monks in the morning at Faxi Temple, before visiting ancient Lingyin Temple - one of the oldest and most significant Buddhist temples in China. Immerse yourself in the artistic history of the region with a calligraphy lesson alongside a master artist at Amanfayun and take a trip to China's silk capital, Hangzhou, where bustling streets showcase a variety of silk boutiques.

Spa & Wellness

The Aman Spa at Amanfayun is magnificent. Located in a beautifully designed two-tier building, there are eight treatment rooms and a fitness studio featuring extensive gym facilities, as well as a specialised fitness centre offering T'ai Chi, yoga, Pilates and meditation programmes. Spa treatments incorporate ancient Asian techniques and heavenly Chinese massage, while the Reflexology Room offers indulgent hand and foot treatments. In addition, the Spa has a wonderful Bath House with another three treatment rooms, each comprising a circular wooden bath, steam room and a double-seated rain shower. After your spa treatment, look forward to a refreshing glass of juice from the Juice Bar before discovering your shoes have been beautifully polished (having left them at reception, they will have been expertly cleaned during your treatment).

In Addition

Local monks are permitted to walk through the hotel’s stone walkway, so be prepared to see non-residents as you head towards Fayun Place, which houses Amanfayun's lounge, library, spa and outdoor heated swimming pool.
