“True luxury is an elusive thing, as hard to pin down as a cooling mist or light breeze. Sometimes it can be found in something as simple as an open window and a glass of water. I first learned this at one of the Amanresorts which is auspiciously if not magically situated on the grounds of the Summer Palace……If the Aman Resorts are world renowned for their exquisite attention to design detail and the highest level of service, the Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing, ups the ante.
“The walk to our rooms was a fragrant stroll through an unfolding series of classical Chinese pavilions framed by traditional gardens with koi-filled ponds and budding trees straight out of an ancient Chinese watercolour painting.”
“If you can have anything, its perhaps the Aman at Summer Palace’s restrained, time-travel version of luxury that is the most unique and compelling.”S: Style & Fashion, Canadaon Aman at Summer Palace, Beijing, Fall 2012
