If you have had the good fortune of staying at other Amans, you will be deeply disappointed at this property which appears for local consumption as much as those who have higher expectations. The location is nice and it's great to be able to walk right to the temples. The rooms are somewhere between strange and just badly designed. The... More

We decided on Hangzhou because of the Unesco World Heritage SIte, West Lake and found the Trail of Seven Temples intriguing. The Amanfayun is an interesting experience as they have "leased" these historic Chinese buildings along a ancient stone pathway surrounded by bamboo and used by monks, other tourists and the community. We found their hospitality to be excellent, and... More

Typical Disney-esque makeover of a poor peasant village outside Hangzhou with the intention to convince fireign travellers who dont know better that they have had a 'China Experience'. Irritatingtly bad: staff seem poorly managed with little or no understanding of how to handle high paying guests: on occasion it seemed like it was the staff having a good time and... More

location is amazing, it's located on the foothills of the famous hangzhou temple. it's like living back in 500 years ago. the villas are weird because the the toilet walls do not go up to the ceiling, so everything that goes on in the toilet gets heard in the bedroom. the food is ok, it's not amazing chinese or local...

Located in a typical Hangzhou valley at the door of one of the most famous and well known Buddhist temple The “Ling yin Temple”. The resort is well located to explore the surrounding Hangzhou Hills and temples as well as some of the best longJin tea plantation. The accommodation in a farm style of bungalows are well appointed but lacking... More

living in Shanghai, Hangzhou is an easy weekend getaway - and I've been hankering after staying at this amazing property for a long time - but put off by the extremely high price. I finally stayed there last month, and the property is exceptional. It's a converted hamlet of old wooden buildings scattered along a stone pathway that leads up... More

Amanfayun is like no other "hotel" you have ever experienced. First, the lodging is spread throughout a picturesque valley that is surrounded by temples, local village people, and tea fields. Second, the resort's buildings fit in with the landscape and are designed fit organically with the history and environment of the area--many of their buildings are original and have been... More

I absolutely loved this resort. The village has literally been converted into rooms, restaurants and a spa - it is so beautiful, a bolt hole from the hustle and bustle of China and a unique property that I feel privileged to have stayed in. We were greeted by the manager Monika and her husband Lukasz and made to feel very... More

This is an exceptional property in the true Aman tradition. The old village that makes up the hotel is really beautiful, a complete haven. The rooms are delightful if a little dark. The restaurants are good and a beautiful secluded warm swimming pool. All this within several hundred yards of teaming masses in the nearby temples. The Aman organises trips... More
