“The astounding calm you find in China is like no other, to the point where you nearly look around to see if you’ve somehow gone through an invisible door, withdrawing from the world. The place resembles more a house than a hotel room. What makes the Amanfayun Hotel so miraculous is that it sits so discreetly among the old homes of villagers, surrounded by fields. A hotel that is a concept in and of itself: going into a traditional rural village and blending in with the landscape. (...) The Amanfayun guarantees visitors the ultimate in serenity. (...)
Spiritual pleasures are of the highest order here, and its main draw. ”
