Aman at the Summer Palace


The Aman at the Summer Palace, Bejing is a luxury resort adjacent to the East Gate. The Aman Bejing is housed in a series of dwellings, most of which date back over one hundred years. Some of the original dwellings were used by guests of the Summer Palace awaiting an audience with the Empress Dowager Cixi at the turn of the twentieth century. Amanresorts' new city-based resort is a peaceful retreat from which to explore the many exciting faces of China's capital.

Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing offers a variety of accommodation which pays homage to the traditional architecture of the Summer Palace, celebrating its courtyard architectural style. Suites surround an internal courtyard featuring an intricate latticework of pathways, separating formal gardens and trees. The aesthetic references draw upon traditional materials and the architecture and design of the Ming Dynasty period. Floors are finished in Jin clay tiles which have been polished to achieve a deep lustre. The ceilings are mostly open to exposed wooden roof beams and structural columns.

Simple and redolent of the past, the Rooms and Suites feature traditional wooden screens and bamboo blinds, creating a mysterious sense of peeking through the veil of time to the romance of another era.
There are eight Guestrooms and ten Courtyard Guestrooms, most of which feature king-size four-poster beds and Ming Dynasty-styled armoires.
The 25 spacious Suites also feature furniture pieces inspired by the Ming Dynasty, and while some have a combined bedroom and living area, others have separate bedrooms, and all feature king-size beds, daybeds, reading chairs and writing desks. The cool, roomy bathrooms feature island bathtubs and have separate shower and toilet areas. Adjacent to each bathroom is a dressing room that features two large Ming-styled wardrobes. There are seven Courtyard Suites which are identical in design to the Suites, but more spacious. The Imperial Suite comprises three separate dwellings; the private dwelling, the living/study dwelling and the formal dwelling.

In the reception area of the main building is The Lounge. Relaxed seating extends to a lower level overlooking a traditional courtyard featuring indigenous trees. The Lounge is open all day and serves Continental breakfast and light meals. In the afternoon, a choice of savouries, cakes and pastries is served.

The Chinese Restaurant offers Peking duck and several imperial dishes, along with traditional Cantonese fare. The restaurant consists of nine different dwellings; three larger ones for the restaurant and six smaller ones to be used as private rooms. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.

The courtyard restaurants consist of two elegant dining rooms surrounding a tranquil reflecting pond. Each dining room is dedicated to a different cuisine. In Naoki, Chef Naoki Okumura serves original French Kaiseki, fare which combines the best of French techniques with a Japanese sense of artistry. Food is prepared in front of guests who are seated around a Japanese counter. Naoki is open for lunch and dinner. The Grill serves Western fare, specialising in a grilled-to-order selection of prime cuts of aged beef, lamb, game and fish. The Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both dining rooms are furnished with classic pieces of furniture in the style of the Ming Dynasty.

The Bar overlooks a peaceful traditional Chinese pond and garden, a quiet, private setting with relaxed seating. Within the bar area is a Cigar Room offering a wide selection of premium cigars. Beyond the pond is a Music Pavilion, where musicians perform in the afternoon and evening on warmer days.

The Spa at Aman at Summer Palace introduces a tranquil retreat of indulgence, rejuvenation and multi-sensory respite for the Aman guest. Imperial Chinese well-being techniques are seamlessly blended with modern wellness therapies, and administered by the expert hands of professionally-trained therapists. Nine self-contained double treatment rooms offer moments of blissful relaxation to restore balance and harmony of mind and body.

Fitness-consultants are available to help you enjoy the use of our 25m indoor lap pool, 300 square metre fitness-room with Techno gym equipment including Kinesis, and two squash courts. A juice bar is ready to serve healthy in-season fruit drinks.

Other facilities include a dedicated pilates room, and a beauty and hair salon by Kim Robinson.
