This compound is like no other. It recreates a large Chinese courtyard establishment, used for centuries throughout China on a much smaller and more modest scale. The way it arranges and makes use of space differ from anything known in Western countries. That alone makes Aman Beijing worth your visit. Add to that, the consistency of the traditional Chinese interior decoration, the beauty of many of the rooms, yards, gardens and squares, and three enjoyable restaurants and a tea room. The Japanese and Western restaurants face onto a beautiful pool -- during warm evenings, when the glass doors are open, this provides a unique spatial experience. As Chinese aesthetics are set to influence how we see beauty around the world, this place gives you a window as good as any to what this part of the future holds.
