A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
As if taking a step back in time to the Qing Dynasty, to host a special occasion at Aman Summer Palace is to experience the opulent celebrations of time gone by. Steeped in history, the resort’s elegant pavilions - once imperial waiting rooms – provide a rare yet refined backdrop for any event.
Those who seek to explore their heritage through a traditional Chinese wedding can do so on the edge of one of China’s most historic Unesco World Heritage Sites with private access to Summer Palace’s gardens. Alternatively, use the hotel’s own gracious private courtyards to reunite with loved ones, celebrate a birthday or as a unique canvas for an exclusive corporate event with room for 100 guests.
While Aman Summer Place location is both stately and palatial, Aman’s approach to design and architecture has created several contemporary locations to host large weddings or more intimate ceremonies that can be personally tailored to even the most particular vision. Couples are invited to make Aman their own with elaborate floral arrangements or more modern décor creating a spectacular ambience against the hotel’s dramatic architecture.
Traditions from across China can also be catered to – with beautiful tea ceremonies to symbolise the union or assistance in finding the perfect cheongsam that can be cherished for years to come.
Ruling towards the end of the Qing Dynasty, Empress Dowager Cixi was well known for her elaborate feasts, with her guests enjoying up to 100 dishes per sitting. At Aman Summer Palace, this ceremonial dining experience has filtered down through the ages and today is expressed in the hotel’s three restaurants, which focus on offering the warmest hospitality and internationally influenced cuisine for all the family. Alternatively, for a more casual occasion, The Reflection Pavilion, shaded by mature greenery, is the ideal location for private casual lunches and cocktail parties overlooking tranquil ponds.
