    Amanfayun is exceptional. I went just after the property opened and it still had a few kinks to work out but it is definitely a 5.

    The property has all of the usual things that you expect from an Aman:

    - great design
    - attentive and predictive service that anticipates needs
    - warm friendly staff
    - an experience, not a hotel

    A few unique things about this property that make it quite special:

    - location right next to the most important temples
    - property is a tastefully restored traditional Chinese village. Aman has respected the original architecture and materials of the village but has updated the interiors with modern minimalist designs
    - incredible setting -- authentic centuries old buddhist carvings in the mountain side of the property, the soothing sound of running water from a creek, tea bushes and other greenery dispersed throughout the grounds
    - efforts by the property to network with the local community provide unique access to restaurants, businesses and cultural sights

    A few recommendations that I would have for guests who visit Amanfayun:

    - have the hotel send a map to the property in Mandarin before you arrive. The car service is great but it is good to have your own map just in case you have to take a local taxi
    - take plenty of cash. ATMs are hard to find and many places outside the property won't take credit cards. The Aman allowed us to charge cash to our account but it is nice not to need this service
    - if you don't speak Mandarin or the local dialect, consult the hotel and have them help with ordering at restaurants in advance. A few of the places we visited didn't have menus. This increases the likelihood that you will end up with a pre-set course. Pre-set courses can be fun but are also a bit risky / can be hard to stomach too many times in a row (i.e., one can only eat chicken's feet and pork knuckles so many times in one vacation
    - don't worry if you see a beetle in the room. They won't hurt you

    In terms of the "kinks" that we experienced, the only issues I observed were:

    - limited on-site food options. These will be addressed when the new restaurants open. The hotel was very good at identifying alternatives close by so this wasn't a big issue for us (this problem should have been corrected by now)
    - occasional inconsistencies in service. I'm sure these will get worked out as the staff get more experience and get greater comfort with English

    Go now and enjoy! You won't be disappointed.
