Far East Hospitality has taken over the management
of the Village Hotel Ariake Tokyo and rebranded it as the Far East
Village Hotel Ariake.
The 306-key property is the first hotel
under Far East's Village brand to expand its presence outside of
Koto City in the eastern part of Tokyo, Far East Village Hotel Ariake
will mainly target the domestic business community who will be
attending conferences and exhibitions at Tokyo Big Sight, one of
Japan's premier exhibition arenas and convention centres.
Tokyo Big Sight is
just a few minute's away by car or 22 minutes by foot. The Ariake Tennis
Park and the Ariake Arena are also close by.
"We live in bizarre times today, but it is never
too soon to start looking for opportunities. Domestic travel has
picked up in Japan since the easing of travel curbs in June. After
careful evaluation and consideration, we decided that now is the right time to open," said Mr Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive of Far
East Hospitality. "We have confidence in the domestic market,
particularly business travellers. Opening now also gives our
operation teams opportunity to fine-tune all areas and they will
be ready when the market eventually picks up."
