Unique experience -- old restored Chinese village, with gurgling stream, ancient pathways, Buddhas carved into rocks on valley walls, serenity except for an occasional honking goose. Terrific break from hustle, bustle of modern China. All the service and quality you expect at an Aman, along with the very special setting. I used to think the prices charged at Amans were... More

Let me count all the negatives first: - The room was very dark, so dark that after turning on all the lights, even twisting the shades to face the ceiling to better reflect light, I still couldn't see my suitcase well enough to find my clothes; I can understand mood lighting, but this is too much, something the management needs...

Very old school, the first of Amans I have ever stayed at. Lots of monks walking around the grounds, for a moment my family and I forgot that we are staying in a resort! Very quiet since it is far from any traffic, a great way to get in touch with nature. I would highly recommend this place for anyone... More

We have stayed in many of the Aman properties across the world, however this one remains one of our firm favourites. It is important to understand that the property is an old Buddhist village, and that most of the buildings are old, and whilst refurbished to the very high Aman standard, they look old (because they are). Inside the rooms... More

This place is magical - unbeatable location, culture and experience. Staff are fantastic too. One of the best Amans I have stayed in. I also stayed at the Banyan Tree and although beautiful it does not come close.

I am just back from Amanfayun. What a wonderful place. It is an old Chinese village next to a Buddhist temple. It is really like going back in time. The villas are restored village houses with a lot if charm. No cars around and immersed in the nature. A great place to relax. I really advise it also for families.

I've longed to visit this property for a long time and at last, I did. But it proved to be a disappointing experience, or it couldn't be worse. Upon entering the property, I was attracted by the serene surrounding, everything looked so well organized. There was a concierge boy standing at the entrance, next to him, was a local driver....

If you are not planning a trip to Hangzhou, think again. This is one hotel that is worth the detour from Shanghai. It is a village that has been taken over by Aman. Each unit is its own house in the village. The restaurants are their own structures as well. The hotel is near many of the key sights in... More

Everything is fine, besides 10-20 worm (millipede) on our bed. Hotel changed another room for us in the evening 9:30pm. It's lucky we haven't got on the bed yet. Esther from Taiwan

Everything was perfect, especially the service, which is always top notch at Aman Properties. Staying here made feel like I was living in an old ancient Chinese village hundreds of years ago. The property itself is quiet and secluded and the rock grotto sculptures just outside the property are simply magnificent! I loved that I could walk right out of... More
