From the moun­tains of Yun­nan to the plains of Zim­babwe, these re­sorts will reawaken the senses

Aman­re­sorts’ latest lux­ury prop­erty, its 28th, opened in Fe­bru­ary in one of China’s most scenic spots—the cen­turies-old town of Li­jiang in the moun­tain­ous south­west­ern province of Yun­nan. Aman­dayan is en­veloped by the Unesco-listed town’s beau­ti­ful her­itage ar­chi­tec­ture—think cob­ble­stone streets, pretty arched bridges and plenty of pago­das—and nearby nat­u­ral land­marks such as Tiger Leap­ing Gorge and Lashi Lake. The 35-suite prop­erty is de­signed in tra­di­tional Sino-ti­betan style and fea­tures de­tails such as cus­tom elm fur­nish­ings and the re­gion’s dongba wood carv­ings. Fa­cil­i­ties in­clude the Tea House, which boasts a beau­ti­ful view, the Man Yi Xuan res­tau­rant, which serves both Can­tonese and Yun­nanese cui­sine, and a spa with six treat­ment rooms that in­cor­po­rates tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine in its range of treat­ments.
