Experience

A traditional village of stone pathways, shaded courtyards and peaceful abodes, Amanfayun is a place to explore and a gateway to the beauty of West Lake and beyond

Adventures

Nestled in a valley near West Lake on the west fringes of Hangzhou, Amanfayun is surrounded by ancient temples, bamboo forests and terraced tea fields, a world away from urban life. Discoveries await throughout the peaceful resort as well as the region beyond, whether it is a morning prayer session with Buddhist monks, a soothing nature walk or a visit to a neighbouring tea plantation
