Arranged around calm courtyards, Amandayan’s dwellings are imbued with the clean lines and the indigenous Nakhi people's architectural aesthetic using locally sourced materials, including Yunnan pine and elm from Dong Bei. Known as the Land of Eternal Spring for its exceptionally mild climate, China’s southwestern Yunnan province is bordered by Tibet, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam. It is famed for limestone plateaus, snow-capped peaks, and rushing rivers.

An ancient city, Lijiang’s Old Town, Dayan, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Perched in the center, above the roofline on Lion Hill, Amandayan overlooks an intricate bridge and canal system and dramatic mountainous landscape. Discover rich natural beauty on a trek through Tiger Leaping Gorge or horseback ride through a wildflower meadow. In Lijiang, the narrow lanes and 354 bridges reveal heritage, architecture, and culture that dates back centuries.

Lessons in Yunnan legend in the heart of Unesco-listed Lijiang - Amandayan’s outdoor pool and private cinema might be a first in Lijiang. Still, with its tranquil courtyards and traditional design, it feels as much a part of the Old Town as the winding streets and pretty bridges of this Unesco World Heritage Site. At its heart lies Wenchang Palace, a Qing-dynasty building used for cultural demonstrations and ceremonies, but ancient teaching endures too in the Man Yi Xuan restaurant's kitchens and the wisdom of Taoist therapies. Beyond the Old Town, a region steeped in folklore entices visitors to delve deeper into China’s far southwest.

Amandayan Suites, Lijiang - Graceful and elegant with clean, simple lines, Amandayan’s Suites are contemporary in style yet still unmistakably Chinese. Decorated with materials and fabrics from the region, including Yunnan pine and Dong Bei elm, every Suite opens onto a courtyard or a terrace with Lijiang’s rooftops' views Lion Hill or the UNESCO-protected Old Town and the majestic mountains beyond.

Dining Experiences at Amandayan - Restaurants are open to guests and non-residents. Locally grown ingredients take prominence across Amandayan’s restaurants, from the Chinese restaurant serving Nakhi fare with a modern touch to the Lounge with Asian and Western dishes. The Tea House offers seats that look out over the Old Town accompanied by traditional Chinese and Western tea services.

Lijiang - Aman Spa’s range of therapies is informed by traditional Chinese medicine, from massages and exfoliations to cupping. Four treatment rooms are equipped with a steam shower and a peaceful relaxation area, and two additional wet treatment suites host scrubs, baths, and wraps. The spa is also home to a 20-meter heated pool, a fully equipped gym, and a Pilates studio with an integrated wellness approach.

Lijiang Adventure Experiences - Panoramic views from Amandayan take in a range of exploration opportunities, the centuries-old UNESCO World Heritage-protected Old Town, and the surrounding villages' patchwork fields the snow-capped summits of the peaks that define the horizon. A remarkable combination of cultural and natural wonders, Lijiang marks the changing seasons with several lively Nakhi festivals.
