Aman at Summer Palace

15 Gongmenqian St. , Summer Palace
Beijing , China
86 10 5987-9999

Amanresorts’ first foray into China is a cocoon of quiet sophistication near the heart of the frenzied capital. The 51 rooms and suites—housed in what was once a Ch’ing-dynasty imperial complex— are steps from the Summer Palace (pop through a private door and you’re on the grounds) and are decorated with Ming-style furniture, carved wooden screens, and Jin clay tiles. Some 400 preservation experts and traditional craftsmen worked on the multiyear project, which painstakingly restored and re-created the internal courtyards and ornate pavilions.
