Ritz-Carlton has expanded its enviable portfolio
of hotels in Asia Pacific with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton,
Nikko in Japan.
The property, set amidst an UNESCO World Heritage
Site, is located in the Northern Kanto region of Japan, two and a
half hours north of Tokyo.
Accessible by rail or car, Nikko, and the surrounding area, has long been known as a
holy place and was named an UNESCO World Heritage Site for the
cultural, religious, and architectural significance of its richly
decorated shrines and temples.
Perched along Lake Chuzenji and
Mount Nantai, guests can easily access prominent scenic attractions, such as Nikko National Park, where the hotel is
located, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage designated area.
“Following much anticipation surrounding its debut, we
are thrilled to finally open the doors to The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko
and to continue the growth of the luxury segment in Japan,” said
Rajeev Menon, President Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China),
Marriott International. “Today marks an extremely monumental day
for our brand and the entire company as we set the bar in luxury
travel, embracing the new normal, while consistently instilling
confidence in travel amongst all of our guests.”
The resort’s 94 guest rooms and
suites all feature a private balcony that flows seamlessly with an engawa lounge area, offering an expanded space for guests to take
in the striking scenery surrounding the hotel.
The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko features a variety of F&B outlets, a spa
with four treatment rooms and an authentic
hot-spring with spacious indoor and open-air hot spring
baths, where therapeutic thermal waters drawn from the springs of
nearby Yumoto Onsen rejuvenate body and mind.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer an elevated level of luxury
and the first of its kind to be located in the sublime mountain
region of Nikko,” said Jennie Toh, Vice President, Brand, Asia
Pacific, Marriott International. “Our Ladies and Gentlemen at The
Ritz-Carlton, Nikko are looking forward to welcoming guests and
providing enriching, authentic experiences that truly embrace the
local culture and destination.”
