The Aman at Summer Palace Beijing offers modern travelers a glimpse into what life was like for visiting dignitaries and guests of Empress Dowager Cixi at the turn of the 20th century. The traditional Chinese architecture is centered around pavilions and a series of courtyards. Our arrival was spectacular with a signature drink and warm greeting. Upon first entry into...

There isn't a hotel as much as it is an experience. Originally a guest compound attached to the Summer Palace, the Aman has been restored and adapted to be pretty much a fantasy destination. For us it began when they picked us up at the airport and we were taken down to our waiting Volvo SUV, which was in a...

We arrived at 10P and were greet by a smiling staff and Tim W. the general manager. This began the realization that we would be enjoying a special place. Never before were we greeted by a hotel GM. He continued to check if all was well and offered any needed assistance to make our stay perfect. When we entered our...

This compound is like no other. It recreates a large Chinese courtyard establishment, used for centuries throughout China on a much smaller and more modest scale. The way it arranges and makes use of space differ from anything known in Western countries. That alone makes Aman Beijing worth your visit. Add to that, the consistency of the traditional Chinese interior...

Our stay at the aman was really like no other. The location and the surroundings transport you to a different time and the staff ensure that your stay is like no other. We had the morning breakfast tour at the summer palace which is also highly recommendable. You can't go wrong with a stay at this property.

I hate people that complain about prices. If something is too expensive then don't go there, period. But I have a complaint of a somewhat different nature: The guided tours are a huge rip-off. I find it highly inappropriate that a 5-star Hotel is exploiting it's guest in that way. That kills my trust to the Hotel, in turn I...

Room - room was a good size and was traditionally decorated. Each room is its own separate villa. Traditional Chinese architecture uses the courtyard structure, so there are villas on 3 sides of the square courtyard. They put red lanterns outside our villa to indicate that we were there to celebrate an occasion (our anniversary), which was cool. However, we...

This was our first trip to mainland China and our visit stay at an Aman property. The location adjacent to the Summer Palace is magical. Plan to visit toward the end of the day and you will have the Palace to yourself! The hotel setting is peaceful, sophisticated and charming. Our "room" was actually a small building with every comfort...

This sets the bar pretty high. The architecture and setting would be enough to blow me away, but then add the amazing underground pool, the gorgeous food and the cool bedrooms with every amenity. The staff were so nice to let me bring a friend in to spend time with us on our visit. They also let us bring in...
