Amandayan is set on just over a hectare above the winding lanes of Lijiang Old Town – described by UNESCO as “an urban landscape of outstanding quality”. Designed in the traditional architectural style of the Nakhi – the indigenous people of northwestern Yunnan and the ethnic group responsible for Lijiang’s historic prominence – Amandayan is housed in a series of dwellings with beautiful views, arranged around peaceful courtyards.
The property presents 35 elegantly-appointed suites, many with beautiful views of Lijiang, the countryside surrounding the city and the snow-capped mountains on the horizon. Suites are decorated with materials and fabrics from the region, including Yunnan pine from Shangri-La, striking Nakhi embroidery and elaborate Dongba wood carvings of flowers, birds and other nature motifs. Stone floors gently reference the resort’s proximity to the mountains, while most furniture is wooden, crafted from elm felled in the Dong Bei region. Graceful and elegant with clean, simple lines, it is contemporary in style yet still unmistakably Chinese.
Amandayan is Aman’s third resort in China, joining Aman at Summer Palace in Beijing and Amanfayun in Hangzhou.
