Amandayan - Yunnan, China
Located atop Lion Hill in China’s Yunnan region, Amandayan looks over the UNESCO-listed Old Town of Lijiang and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. A magical place, we love that there’s a secret door leading to a path between the hotel and the old town, and that there’s a 200-year old temple housed inside the property. There are nine courtyards around the hotel in which to relax, and the tea house boasts a great balcony with views of the surroundings. The hotel also has the only outdoor swimming pool in Lijiang.
