Aman blos­soms in China

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Signature Concierge -

The city of Li­jiang in Yun­nan Prov­ince has been hailed as one of the most beau­ti­ful places in China, a po­ten­tial real-life coun­ter­part for the myths of Shangri-La and now the home of Aman’s lat­est re­sort, Aman­dayan. A com­plex of tra­di­tional court­yard build­ings atop Lion Hill houses 35 suites in con­tem­po­rary style, re­call­ing the sur­round­ing peaks in stone floors and the in­dige­nous Nakhi cul­ture in strik­ing em­broi­dery and in­tri­cate wood carv­ings adorn­ing bal­conies, fur­ni­ture and slid­ing screens. The re­sort is also home to Wen­chang Palace, nes­tled in an 18th-cen­tury court­yard amid cen­tury-old trees and carv­ings. Three din­ing op­tions cover all tastes, with the sig­na­ture Man Yi Xuan ded­i­cated to Can­tonese and lo­cal Yun­nan cuisines, while the spa com­prises six treat­ment rooms with a serene court­yard swim­ming pool. Aman­dayan is Aman’s third prop­erty in China, join­ing Aman at the Sum­mer Palace in Bei­jing and Aman­fayun in Hangzhou. www.aman­re­
