Introducing Amanyangyun, Aman’s fourth resort in China, located just outside downtown Shanghai. Amanyangyun is a unique forest village of modern and historic Ming and Qing dynasty dwellings, tranquil gardens and an enriching Aman Spa. The result of a monumental decade-long conservation initiative, the resort offers fascinating insights into the life and culture of both contemporary and ancient China.
This epochal challenge used the 50 disassembled dynasty homes to create 26 ancient dwellings which were reassembled within the replanted and now flourishing camphor forest. Featuring ornate carvings and reliefs detailing family histories that date back two millennia, these sensitively restored antique dwellings – 13 now transformed into four-bedroom Antique Villas with pools (together with 24 contemporary one-bedroom Club Suites make up the resort’s room inventory) – form the peaceful heart of Amanyangun. The remaining 12 historic homes rescued and restored from Jiangxi, together with a number of new residences, have been converted into refined Aman Residences to own. Embracing a restful, earthy palette, with interiors finished in wood, stone, and bamboo, Amanyangyun’s Antique Villas and Club Suites each feature fireplaces and courtyards, and have been designed by Kerry Hill Architects. The result is a harmonious blend of modernity and tradition, and a living monument to the natural and human history of Jiangxi.
Like its fellow resorts in China – Aman Summer Palace in Beijing, Amanfayun in Hangzhou and Amandayan in Lijiang – Amanyangyun acts as a gateway to the culture, history, natural wonder and diverse appeal of its location. It invites guests to experience the electric urban energy, multinational dining and cultural richness of modern-day Shanghai, the seclusion and tranquillity of the ancient camphor forest, and the signature service and warm welcome that has characterised Aman for almost three decades.
