China Hotel & Resort Butler Training | Amanyangyun | Aman Resorts

By Butler Academy



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 spaces. Light-filled with forest views, interiors are finished in wood, stone and bamboo.

 

Amazing training completed at Amanyangyun in Shanghai, China.

    Dear Mr.Coetzer and Mr.Cross,

    Greeting from amazing and peaceful Amanyangyun butler team Melody. Thank you for your butler training, which makes me more aware of the role of butler and also let me learn a lot of professional knowledge. For example, skills to fold clothes, a variety of food and beverage knowledge, how to talk to the guest properly, graceful movements, decent manners, and tell us a lot of details things, maybe just a word, maybe just a little action, but it can bring different results, all of these inspire me to be a good butler.

    Many thanks for you all, I do enjoy the butler training so much.
    Wish you all the best in future and please take care.

    Best regards

    Dear Newton,

    I am glad to have the butler training form you in this days.

    In the past time,i just know the service,however the detail of the sevvice is missing.During the five days,i really get so many things,such as how to open the wine beautifully,how to offer the valet service and so on.You made the ‘butler’ form the name to action,I knew i am not the best butler right now,however i will keep learning how to be the best.i think the most important thing is the attitude,To be the best i still have a long way to go,just like you said butler is technical skill plus energy plus passion plus commitment.Every small step will make a great change.I am pretty sure I will be better.

    Thank you for all the help and wish you have a good journey home.

    Best Regards,
