Discover Amanyangyun (, a luxury hotel and resort just outside downtown Shanghai. A cherished camphor forest sets the scene for Aman's fourth destination in China: Amanyangyun. Meaning ‘nourishing cloud’, yangyun is a reference to expanding the ‘cloud’ of the mind with knowledge – a philosophy borne by the story of the trees and dwellings at Amanyangyun's heart. This introspective retreat belies a remarkable tale of a forest transported, and a history preserved

Saved from demolition, these Ming- and Qing-dynasty dwellings have been reassembled, brick by ancient brick, to create peaceful, refined accommodation. Light-filled with forest views, interiors are finished in wood, stone and bamboo. A fusion of comfort, beauty and tradition, the light-filled Club Suites and Antique Villas embrace simple, clean lines. Local materials and textures harmonise with the lush scenery glimpsed through lattice screens, which in turn dapple the light within

Amanyangyun's camphor forest has a remarkable history. Rescued, then relocated 700km from Jiangxi to Shanghai, more than 10,000 camphor trees, famed for their calming scent, now flourish in their new home

Set amid trees and lakes, Amanyangyun is a seminal Shanghai destination – ideal for city escapes, wellness retreats or Aman Spa Journeys exploring the best of China. Peaceful and serene, it lies close to Shanghai culture, shopping and sights
