Amanfayun
Hangzhou

Top 10s logo 

Amanfayun is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia.

Hangzhou has a great selection of luxury hotels, however in our opinion Amanfayun outdoes them all in managing to blend luxury, while truly capturing the essence and mystique of Hangzhou.

Amanfayun has great charm and character and is very effective in creating the romantic feeling of being submersed in traditional village life in rural China. Situated on 14 hectares of land, to the west of West Lake, the hotel is comprised of 47 rooms, suites and villas surrounded by tea fields, natural forests and lush groves of bamboo. Each of the dwellings, some of which date back over a century, are tucked away between winding footpaths and shaded courtyards, and are decorated with delicate calligraphy and traditional art pieces.

The resort features the original village Fayun layout, with a 600-metre main thoroughfare, and the Fayun Pathway leading towards the beautiful and atmospheric Lingyin and Yongfu temples. You stay includes entry to both temples outside visitor hours, both of which are easily reached by foot; a great plus to see these monuments without other tourist crowds! You will often find monks walking along the Fayun Pathway, which only enhances the strong sense of place.

The independent outlets in the grounds are also delightful as they are buzzing with local life and colour, especially the Tea House. There are also other restaurants along the pathway which include the Steam House, Hangzhou House and the Vegetarian eatery. Other facilities at Amanfayun include the Aman Spa, a small but well-equipped gym and a beautifully scenic outdoor swimming pool.

The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
