In the spirit of a traditional Chinese village, Amanfayun is a place to explore – a place of stone pathways leading to shaded courtyards, quaint restaurants and peaceful abodes. Situated on 14 hectares to the west of West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the outskirts of Hangzhou, the resort is comprised of 47 dwellings surrounded by tea fields, natural forests and lush groves of bamboo. Just a 20-minute drive from the city centre, Amanfayun is the ideal location from which to explore the region’s ancient Buddhist temples, botanical gardens, vast wetland areas, countless pagodas, and Hangzhou’s famous silk and shopping streets. The resort features the original village layout, with a 600-metre main thoroughfare, the Fayun Pathway.
Amanfayun offers 42 rooms, suites and villas located within the property. Due to the unique nature of the structures, no two rooms are identical. Without compromising the integrity of the dwellings, all accommodations enjoy the comforts of radiant underfloor heating, air conditioning and internet connectivity. All furniture is freestanding and includes daybeds, sofas, dining suites and floor and desk lamps. Fine calligraphy art pieces decorate the walls and a sound system with iPod option is available in all rooms. Televisions are available on request. Most accommodation units open to private or semi-private courtyards with informal outdoor dining and lounging areas.

The Restaurant is tucked away behind a grove of evergreens and overlooks a terrace above Fayun Pathway. This is the only outlet which serves Western cuisine and the menu features a number of international dishes, in essence offering guests finely-crafted comfort food. Access is via a stone pathway that crosses a reflection pool to a mainly glass-walled pavilion. The Restaurant also houses The Bar which is suitable for informal dining throughout the day as well as pre- or post-dinner drinks.
Adjacent to the Boutique is the Aman Spa which consists of five separate buildings surrounded by bamboo groves, tea bushes, and Magnolia trees. The Reception and Reflexology House is the first building accessed from Fayun Pathway via a shaded courtyard, and contains the spa library, lounge, and consultation area. The second building is the Bath House. This contains three treatment rooms that allow guests to relax alone or as a couple. Each treatment room is equipped with a circular wooden soaking tub, a rain shower, a steam room, and double-seated showers. The building adjacent to the Bath House is the Fitness Centre. On the lower level and directly adjacent to the Yongfu Temple wall is a separate Tai Chi, yoga, and meditation room. A fully-equipped gym is located directly across the courtyard, the second level houses the Aman Pilates Studio. Further along the stone footpath is the Finishing Salon where hair spa treatments, manicures, pedicures, and waxing are offered. The last two-storey structure within the spa complex is the Treatment House which comprises three double and two single treatment rooms. Each room features a changing area, steam shower, toilet, and soaking tub.
