A courtyard at Amanfayun in Hangzhou, China

Designed in the layout of a traditional Chinese village, Amanfayun is surrounded by tea fields, temples and forests filled with indigenous trees such as magnolia and Chinese horse chestnut. In this peaceful, spiritual setting, some of the property's 47 stone buildings date back more than 100 years — the highlight being the main public area (including a lounge, cigar room and library), consisting of two courtyard houses from the 1800s. Every aspect of Amanfayun is designed for tranquility, from Aman Spa, nestled in bamboo groves, to the Tea House, serving fine regional teas. While the many eclectic restaurants of Hangzhou are just twenty minutes away, you'll do well to stay close to home and enjoy Zen-inspired dishes at Vegetarian House or classic local cuisine at Hangzhou House.
