Amanresorts‘ has opened their first resort in the heart of Beijing at its most iconic site, steps away from UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven.

The Aman at Summer Palace inhabits a series of historic pavilions that dates over a hundred years old. Traditional craftsmen and preservation experts were called on to painstakingly restored and re-created the once regal and traditional Qing-dynasty imperial complex to its former glory.  The final result, a masterpiece resort in the courtyard architectural style of the Palace with elegant Ming-Dynasty that pays homage to China’s Imperial past. The resort holds 51 rooms and suites, offering guests a taste of what it would have been like to live as a guest awaiting an audience with the Empress Dowager at the turn of the century.
