Aman Summer Palace is the perfect boutique hotel to visit any time of the year, but especially in the summer. Located within a few steps from the East Gate of the Unesco World Heritage Site Beijing, the hotel has a private entrance into the historic garden estate. Aman Summer Palace offers a peaceful and unique retreat surrounded by tranquil courtyards, elegant rooms and suites with king-size beds, large wardrobes and a relaxing natural colour palette.
Aman Summer Palace displays Qing dynasty design thus presenting a uniquely Chinese resort-style experience. Inside the palace grounds, guests will find symmetrical labyrinths of crisscrossing courtyards, covered walkways, tended gardens and wood-beamed halls, and as one wanders around, a fitting soundtrack is provided by performers plucking the guzheng in the high-beamed chambers.
Aman Summer Palace extends the excellence of its portfolio by having an infinite pool, spa, squash courts, a gym, a thirty-five sear cinema and a calendar with multiple cultural events such as Chinese paper-cutting, taichi and tea-ceremony etiquette. The fifty guest suites and pavilions are arranged around the peaceful courtyards, each with its own character, unique details and design. With Ming-inspired furnishings and amenities, the bathroom’s design is palatial with twin vanities, freestanding tubs and feather-soft Ploh robes.
Spread across the grounds, the Aman Summer Palace has five restaurants open to both guests and non-residents, serving cuisine from around the world. The Grill is open for the three main meals, offering Western cuisine, specialising in grilled meat and fresh seafood, overlooking the courtyard by a tranquil reflection pond. The Nama is a Japanese restaurant, serving impeccably cooked washoku cuisine, and it is open for lunch and dinner, with an open kitchen with a convivial counter from which to watch the chefs work their magic.
The Chinese Restaurant serves classic imperial dishes such as Pekin duck, Szechuan Chicken and Cantonese dim sum. Open for lunch and dinner, the three large dining rooms are complemented by six private dining spaces, all decorated with classic Ming dynasty-inspired furnishings. The Reflection Pavilion overlooks the lotus pond, facing the Summer Palace’s Grand Theatre – which provides a distant soundtrack whilst the performers rehearse; guests can enjoy light meals, afternoon tea, cocktails and wine. Settled in the resort’s elegant Arrival Pavilion, The Lounge offers relaxed seating overlooking a traditional courtyard and serves light meals and refreshments throughout the day.
Spread across two subterranean levels, the tranquil Aman Spa is a sanctuary for body and mind. In the nine double treatment rooms, therapies that draw on Imperial traditions range from gemstone massages and scrubs to moxibustion, reflexology and acupuncture. Separate male and female changing areas incorporate steam and sauna rooms, Jacuzzis and cold plunge pools.
