Amandayan can been found atop Lion Hill in the heart of Lijiang. While it is leading the way in bringing 21st-century luxuries to Lijiang, such as a private cinema and modern outdoor pool, Amandayan feels every bit a part of the Old Town as the charming historical bridges and cobbled streets found here.

Guests can relax in its tranquil courtyards and traditionally designed suites with wooden features and intricate carvings made from local Yunnan pine and Dong Bei elm, fully in keeping with the Nakhi people’s use of timber for construction and art.

It offers three styles of suite, with 35 suites in total, all of which offer their own courtyard or terrace from which you can enjoy the mesmerising views of Lijiang’s rooftops, Lion Hill, the Old Town and the majestic mountains in the background.

After working up an appetite exploring the wonders of Lijiang, head Amandayan’s main restaurant, Man Yi Xuan, where you can delight in Nakhi cuisine, created locally grown ingredients. For a delightful immersion into the world of Chinese tea, head to the Tea House where you can indulge in an assortment of teas as well as dim sum, sandwiches, cakes and pastries both indoors and out with views of Lijiang’s old town.

To achieve full body relaxation, head to the Aman Spa where you can indulge in a selection of traditional Chinese therapies. If you are feeling active, the spa also has a 20-metre heated pool, a fully equipped gym and Pilates studio.
