Located on Lion Hill above the winding lanes and alleys of old town Lijiang, Amandayan is housed in a number of dwellings and has been built in the traditional style of the indigenous Naxi people with accommodation arranged around tranquil courtyards.
The 35 suites mix contemporary and Chinese styles with stone floors and wooden furniture, much of which is elaborately carved. Many of the suites have views over Lijiang towards the surrounding countryside and snow-capped mountains.
Facilities at the hotel include two restaurants, a 30 seat cinema, a signature aman spa, gymnasium and a 20 metre outdoor heated swimming pool.
Why we like it
Superbly located on Lion Hill this long awaited Aman has spectacular views over Lijiang’s Old Town. The third Aman property in China, this latest addition complements the existing properties in Beijing and Hangzhou.
