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.
