A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
Surrounded by serene Buddhist temples in a wooded valley, Amanfayun is a private village, seemingly lost in time. It rests peacefully on the edge of Hangzhou, where the West Lake has influenced poets and painters throughout Chinese history. For those wishing to celebrate a wedding, birthday or occasion at Amanfayun, the inspirational beauty of the lake and its surroundings – now a Unesco World Heritage Site – can become home for the occasion, where guests feel tucked away from the world in a natural paradise of tea fields, indigenous forest and lush groves of bamboo.
The experienced team at Amanfayun can assist in the planning of personal, one-of-a-kind weddings, whether an intimate courtyard exchanging of vows or an elaborate poolside ceremony with family and friends. Originally a tea-farming village with roots in the Tang dynasty, Amanfayun retains the layout and charm of a traditional Chinese hamlet and is breathtakingly photogenic. Ancient stone walls, verdant glades and the sensitive blend of antique and contemporary architecture provide several unique backdrops, ensuring a wedding album like no other.
Special events at Amanfayun can be held both indoors and out, and activities can be arranged in the days before and after to build anticipation and extend the celebration. After a relaxing afternoon in the spa or boating on West Lake, an elegant cocktail party on the terrace overlooking the forest can segue into dinner and dancing in the Restaurant. Breakfast in a forest glade can be enjoyed after a contemplative dawn spent chanting with the monks of Lingyin Temple. Or while away an afternoon exploring the grottoes of Feilai Feng after a long family lunch beside the pool.
No request is too great and no detail too small. We are here to assist you with all aspects of event organisation, from conception through to execution.
