Venues

Courtyard 1 and Outer Courtyard

Surrounded by traditional pavilions and the lush greenery of magnolias and wild apple trees, the resort’s largest courtyards are interconnected and make a stunning setting for an outdoor ceremony or reception. The red doors of the pavilions are an auspicious symbol year round, while the pink and white blossoms that bedeck the trees make spring a particularly beautiful time of year to host an event.

The Grill

A light-filled venue with lofty ceilings, polished floors, intricate bamboo screens and classic Ming dynasty inspired furniture, The Grill opens onto a serene courtyard centred by a reflection pond. The ideal venue for celebratory receptions, The Grill serves Western cuisine and specialises in grilled-to-order prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood.

Nama

An atmospheric, high-ceiled venue with an open kitchen and a signature counter running the length of the room, Nama is the resort’s Japanese restaurant, ideal for cocktail parties and seated receptions. Celebrating Washoku cuisine with authentic, elegant dishes that champion locally-sourced produce, Nama serves exquisitely crafted sushi, sashimi and traditional Japanese delicacies.

Chinese Restaurant

Classic imperial dishes such as Peking duck as well as Szechuan chicken and Cantonese dim sum are cooked with great delicacy at the nine-room Chinese Restaurant. The three large dining rooms are complemented by six private dining spaces, all decorated with classic Ming dynasty inspired furnishings. Dark floors and wood-beamed ceilings create the perfect frame for celebratory banquets and more intimate gatherings.

The Reflection Pavilion

Suitable for ceremonies and receptions, as well as quiet moments of contemplation, The Reflection Pavilion opens onto a serene stone terrace. Set beside an emerald lotus pond fringed with drifting willow trees, the Reflection Pavilion faces the Summer Palace’s Grand Theatre, which often provides a distant soundtrack as performers rehearse.

Suitable for all kinds of events and celebrations, The Cultural Pavilion lies at the heart of the resort overlooking a serene courtyard. Here guests can learn more about traditional Chinese arts from calligraphy and paper cutting, to kite making and tea ceremonies, demonstrated by masters happy to share their knowledge and skill. It also offers a wide selection of books on Chinese history, culture, art and more.
