Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing Luxury Hotel
Just a few steps from the East Gate of the vast Summer Palace grounds, Aman Summer Palace offers a selection of heritage-imbued dwellings, including those once used by guests awaiting an audience with the Empress.
Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing was once the guest quarters for the Empress Dowager Cixi. Now, it’s a portal to modern Beijing that preserves the elegance of the Ming Dynasty.
Facing a courtyard with a latticework of pathways and gardens, rooms feature king-size beds, Ming Dynasty-styled armories, traditional wooden screens, and bamboo blinds. Suites are super livable; you can spend an afternoon reclining on a daybed or enjoying the island tubs.
With no shortage of culinary choices, guests can eat continental cuisine in the Lounge, or Cantonese fusion in the Chinese Restaurant. At Naoki, Chef Naoki Okumura serves original Kaiseki fare that combines French techniques with Japanese artistry. Not adventurous? The Grill is Chinese in decor, but serves western fare.
Aman also embraces wellness with a spa, fitness facility, pool, squash court, and a juice bar. If you’re serious about fitness, you can book a consult with on-site trainers.
