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...

Stunning!!! One of the most amazing hotel/resort experiences that I have ever had! The building, the setting, interior design, restaurant and food, rooms, amenities, staff and the overall quality of the experience was outstanding and top notch in every way!. The direct access into Beijing's Summer Palace through a private entrance as well as the staff escorting you to your...

We are Aman junkies and this location made us realize, again, why. Unique location, service at it's best level, rooms outsatnding in every detail and restaurants to die for. As you could see from the other comments, this complex is next to the Summer palace. As we understand it, the current rooms were the old waiting rooms for a visit...

so when my parents were coming to China, I wanted to find them a hotel that would let them embrace the beautiful aspects of old China without experiencing any of the pitfalls of traditional Chinese hotels. That left, after hours of research, the Aman hotel. It is a 5+ star hotel, by far the nicest hotel in Beijing, and I've...

As most Aman properties, this one feels very special and is a destination almost in itself. It is larger than most Aman hotels around the world (there is even a large cinema for guests) - but it still feels serene and intimate. The suites are very large and beautiful and situated around different courtyards. You can chose from different restaurants...

This property and service is absolutely top notch, and a peaceful escape from the city if needed while traveling to Beijing. If you've been to the one in HangZhou, it is slightly disappointing. The nature surrounding Aman Fayun in Hangzhou is breathtaking and can't be repeated. Aman at Summer Palace has beautiful, comfortable rooms, with exquisite designed bathrooms. We were...

Let me begin with the good: As with all Aman resorts, the property itself is beautiful and flawlessly incorporated to its surroundings. It is a very peaceful space, especially when you can hear people singing or practicing an instrument on the other side of the wall. The property has its own door directly into the Summer Palace, which gives guests...

We visited Beijing during a very busy time, but within the walls of the Aman we got completely lost in the property's tranquility, luxury and grand sense of place. Yes it is expensive and yes it is not "real" China, but for just a couple of days we were transported back in time and able to take in a little...

This is a sensational property and you will be hard pressed to find anything better in Beijing. The location adjacent to the Summer Palace will give you a sense of staying in your very own palace with a back door opening onto the palace complex itself. The rooms were huge (we had a Deluxe Courtyard Suite) and deliciously appointed with...
