Set to launch in 2017, Aman’s fourth property in China, its most ambitious to date, will comprise a village of historic dwellings surrounded by a sacred camphor forest. Its peaceful introspective setting belies its proximity to vibrant downtown Shanghai and both forest and village tell an incredible story that involves a millennia of history, daring engineering feats and a philanthropic endeavour spanning hundreds of kilometers along the country’s eastern reaches.

Aman - A New Destination in China

Aman Shanghai is scheduled to open in late 2017

Within easy reach of Shanghai and set on just over 100 acres filled with the rescued millenarian trees and ornamental lakes, the resort comprises an Aman Spa with two pools; six dining venues; and Nan Shu Fang, a serene garden centred by one of the Antique Villas, curated as a space for contemplation, learning and discussion. The resort’s New Suites and Villas complement the 24 restored Antique Villas, complete with contemporary interiors and private pools.



The architecture, led by Kerry Hill, embodies the essence of Chinese traditional culture, carefully blending the old with the new. This sensitive restoration has not only secured the future of these historic houses, but has enabled the forest to flourish in its new home.



Aman’s first property in Shanghai, its fourth in China, will present guests with a continued insightful journey through the country. It follows Aman Summer Palace in Beijing, a selection of heritage imbued dwellings a few steps from the Summer Palace grounds, Amanfayun in Hangzhou, a restored Tang dynasty village set amongst former tea plantations and bamboo groves and located adjacent to seven Buddhist temples, and Amandayan which embraces Nakhi culture and which lies on a hillside above the UNESCO- protected Old Town of Lijiang.

Opening in 2017, this tranquil resort, and all that it stands for, many years from now will keep on recounting this incredible story.
