Shanghai, China
  • Located outside Shanghai within a beautiful forest of ancient camphor trees, Amanyangyun serves as spiritual retreat in picturesque surroundings

  • A truly unique experience, the accommodation comprises of carefully restored houses of the Ming & Qing Dynasty relocated from the region of Fuzhou in the Jiangxi Province

  • The property boasts an extensive spa, well-equipped fitness facilities, IMAX cinema as well as an indoor and outdoor pool

  • With easy access to both Hongqiao and Pudong International Airports, the property works well as relaxing beginning or end to an exciting exploration of China

Possibly Aman's most ambitious project to date and a restoration that took over seven years to complete, Amanyangyun sits on the outskirts of the bright lights of Shanghai. Here celebrate nature and expand the mind with ancient Chinese traditions. Meaning 'nourishing cloud', Amanyangyun is a vision of beauty, designed to match its natural setting.

The restoration of Amanyangyun itself involved the transportation of ancient dwellings under threat from demolition. From the remote Jiangxi province to the outskirts of Shanghai dozens of village houses were transported along with 10,000 camphor trees and given a new lease of life. What remains now is a flourishing forest of glossy green camphor trees which makes for a whimsical backdrop to this five star resort, a living monument of human history.

The accommodation at Amanyangyun includes 1 villa made from the restored Ming and Qing Dynasty houses together with 24 contemporary suites. Each room and villa has an earthy palette in true chic and understated Aman style. The remaining historic homes and a number of new builds make up 41 refined Aman Pavilions.  

Outside the comfort of your villa or suite, there are six dining options available, each using fresh local produce and authentic flavours. The Aman Spa offers a indulgence into holistic health, fitness and wellbeing. Including 10 treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy suite, private hammam, Russian banya, and specialised area for reflexology, you can ease away any aches and pains. Elsewhere, try Tai Chi or a Chinese martial art class, offered along with yoga and Pilates overlooking a beautiful reflection pond.

Like the other Aman resorts in China, Amanyangyun has a timeless appeal which draws on the culture, history and natural wonders of this breathtaking country. A stay at Amanyangyun is truly unique.
