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 to the palace. It's one of those "how did they do it" moments, a visit we will forever remember. I won't mention the secret door again - very cool though. The attention for detail is fantastic as always with Aman. Nice maps of the location, little gifts, it all worked as clock work.
Let me mention the very high standard of quality in the restaurants for a moment. We ate at the Western and the Chinese restaurant and were blown away. The care, the service, the quality, all great. The chef was very vissable and we had several nice chats with him.
It's just the whole package which makes paying this amount of money worth it for us, every time with Aman.
