Past and present Chinese traditions alike come together against a backdrop of verdant camphor trees at the Amanyangyun Luxury Resort and Hotel in Shanghai. Transported to Shanghai from rural Fuzhou across more than 700 kilometers, the trees are a notable piece of China’s past that have been preserved alongside the newly refurbished villas of the resort in an ambitious feat of architectural and ecological conservation. Featuring a variety of suites, pavilions, and villas, Amanyangyun guests will note a sense of harmony between the structural, man-made environment and the natural ponds and gardens of the surrounding courtyards and forest. More than just a cultural experience, however, Amanyangyun stands out in its multifaceted approach to dining and wellness while also offering an array of event spaces and a 200-seat banquet hall. Amanyangyun in Shanghai is a perfect choice for guests looking to stimulate all their senses, as “yangyun,” meaning “nourishing cloud,” is a Chinese nod to expanding the mind’s “cloud” of knowledge through experience.

Why We Love This Hotel

Culturally Rich: Guests may seek out Chinese cultural activities from calligraphy and ancient painting technique sessions to a tea and incense ceremony in one of nine elegant tea rooms.

Culinary Opportunity: Amanyangyun guests are spoiled for choice as the resort’s five dining venues – including the Chinese Restaurant LAZHU, Italian Restaurant ARVA, Japanese Restaurant NAMA, and The Bar and Cigar Lounge – all offer fresh, locally sourced fare.

Join the Story: The rich cultural history of the Camphor Forest’s relocation in the midst of a necessary dam construction is a fascinating thread to follow and immerse oneself in, as is the reinvigoration of the ancient villas and structures at the resort.

Luxurious Wellness Facilities: Drawing on China’s longstanding tradition of health and wellness practices, the Amanyangyun Spa tailors a deeply therapeutic experience for guests based upon these centuries old Chinese healing traditions.
