Appearing as a traditional Chinese village, Amanfayun is surrounded by tea fields and natural woodland, creating a sanctuary in the hills overlooking Hangzhou. Spread over 14 acres, the resort is wound together with cobbled pathways joining the atmospheric restaurants, bamboo spa and the seven Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Within walking distance to West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there are a myriad of breath-taking experiences in this absorbing, mystical landscape.

Bespoke cultural experiences
The abodes at Amanfayun are spaced evenly in the village to give seclusion and are individually designed so each has its own character, rich in the cultural heritage of the tea growing village. Choose between contemporary rooms and suites or opt for more space and spread across two storeys in one of the elegant villas. Make the most of the experiences and discover wellness across five different pavilions. In serene gardens, go on a journey through ancient healing techniques and try reflexology or therapies such as acupuncture massage. Indulge further into the cultural delights in this stunning setting along the Fayun pathway with mealtimes of authentic Chinese cuisine. Looking out on evergreen woodland the restaurant and bar serve up unique cocktails. In the Steam House dine alfresco in a tranquil courtyard on the authentic fare of the Hangzhou region.
