Set on the outskirts of downtown Shanghai, surrounded by verdant camphor trees in a pristine setting of ecological focus, Amanyangyun is the striking result of an ambitious architectural undertaking. Involving the restoration of 13 Ming and Qing dynasty villas, moved brick-by-brick from the southern city of Fuzhou, guests are offered a fascinating glimpse into China’s past, all amid comfort and luxury.

In addition to the 13 antique villas, there are also 24 contemporary suites, which include the likes of living areas with a fireplace, private courtyards and outdoor bathtubs. The villas range from one to five bedrooms and benefit from exclusive use of the villa area’s pool, Jacuzzi and garden. Throughout the villas and suites, guests will enjoy a refined contemporary design, alongside a nature-inspired aesthetic that achieves peaceful seclusion.

An extensive range of dining options are on offer at the hotel, with delicious Chinese dishes provided by Lazhu, sumptuous Italian fare served by ARVA and tasty Japanese cuisine the focus of NAMA. For refreshments and the likes of afternoon tea, The Bar is the ideal venue, while the Cigar Lounge presents premium drinks and light meals.

Amanyangyun’s huge spa and wellness complex can be found set around the central courtyard, complete with countless treatment rooms, relaxation lounges, pools, a fitness centre and a pilates and yoga studio. For something slightly different, Nanshufang is the hotel’s cultural hub, presenting a space for contemplation, as well as discovery of Chinese traditions such as tea ceremonies, calligraphy lessons and brush painting.
