Aman Summer Palace – Beijing, China

Just steps from the East Gate of the UNESCO-protected Summer Palace grounds lies Aman Summer Palace, the ideal location from which to discover Beijing. Situated just 15 kilometres from the Forbidden City, the 51-Suite resort is housed in a series of pavilions, some of which date back over a century and were originally used by guests of the Empress Dowager Cixi. A serene retreat, with peaceful internal courtyards embracing traditional Chinese architecture, the property offers a unique underground recreational facility including an Aman Spa, a heated swimming pool, skylit gym, Pilates studio, private cinema and squash courts.
