Enter a world of thoughtful design elements inspired by traditional Japan, as reflected in the bamboo screen outside the hotel through to intricately crafted kimono silks splayed on headboards in the rooms themselves. The feel is utterly luxe, with intimate courtyards and communal areas leading to sublime restaurants where a mix of local, French and Italian fare is served up by gracious waiting staff. The small spa, gym and yoga classes are perfect for those who wish to relax or rejuvenate, or you can unwind in your own soothing hideaway, many of which are laid with tatami mats. Spend your days venturing to Kyoto’s 17 World Heritage Sites; sampling Michelin-star cuisine; and exploring the art scene, among many other highlights found right on your doorstep.

Of the numerous restaurants at the Hyatt Regency Hotel there is, of course, a highly regarded sushi restaurant serving a combination of local delicacies and grilled small plates, perfect for anyone seeking an introduction into the region’s fantastic food - without leaving your front door! A surprisingly authentic Italian restaurant is also on offer as well as two atmospheric bars, a dedicated grill house specialising in fresh seafood and prime cuts, a café, pastry boutique and even themed picnics, depending on the time of year. As you would expect from such a highly regarded hotel brand, quality and a respect for regional produce is matched by a fine take on one or two international favourites, particularly in the Italian restaurant and during breakfast service.
