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.
