Celebrations & events at Amanfayun

Host the perfect event

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.

The Venues

Restaurant and Bar

The largest and most contemporary of Amanfayun’s dining venues, The Restaurant is housed on the ground floor of a regal two-storey structure set back from Fayun Pathway behind a grove of evergreen trees. The venue can accommodate up to 48 guests on banqueting tables, or 70 standing.

Private Dining & Meeting Room

Located directly above The Restaurant, Amanfayun’s Meeting Room is a light-filled venue with beautiful views featuring the latest audio-visual equipment, ideal for corporate events. Also suitable for use as a private dining room, it offers two open-air terraces overlooking the forest surrounding the village and can accommodate up to 90 seated guests.

Fayun Place

Located in the centre of the village, Fayun Place is the most commanding of the resort’s original structures. Incorporating two stately courtyard houses dating back to the 1800s, it is accessed via stone courtyards and has a romantic ambience. A dramatic entrance hall and spacious lounge occupy the lower level, while the upper level houses a Cigar Room and informal sitting rooms. The Library extends over both levels, meaning groups of different sizes can be accommodated in one or several unique spaces.
