The culmination of an ambitious feat of architectural and ecological conservation, Amanyangyun is a peaceful sanctuary on the outskirts of downtown Shanghai. Near a rescued forest of camphor trees and a tranquil lake, 13 re-mastered Ming and Qing Dynasty villas have been carefully moved brick-by-brick from Fuzhou to become an integral part of Aman’s fourth destination in China. Offering a glimpse of China’s past in a magnificent natural setting, Amanyangyun is a destination unto itself with a comprehensive Aman Spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, three restaurants, two bars and a unique cultural centre known as Nan Shufang.
Light-filled and embracing woodland views, Amanyangyun's Suites combine expansive living areas with tranquil courtyards, creating an inviting retreat throughout the seasons. Designed to complement the serene surrounding woodland, the Ming Courtyard Suites create a pleasing balance of old and new that chimes perfectly with the village concept. Safeguarding a piece of Chinese history, each of the 13 Antique Villas has been meticulously and sensitively restored to include four suites, divided between the historic villa and a newly built wing. Combining contemporary comforts with a restful, nature-inspired aesthetic, each suite has a private courtyard from which to enjoy the forested surroundings in peaceful seclusion.
Amanyangyun's five dining venues – Chinese restaurant LAZHU, Italian restaurant ARVA, hotpot restaurant YIN LU, The Bar and The Cigar Lounge – each enjoy a distinctive ambience. From fine dining to relaxed alfresco meals, guests can expect the freshest, locally sourced delicacies wherever they choose to dine.
The hotel is located just 50 minutes away from downtown Shanghai and is a perfect starting location for tours of the city, without being in the hustle and bustle of Shanghai itself.
