On July 15, 2020 The Ritz-Carlton has opened a new luxury hotel in Nikko, Japan. It is the brand’s first property to feature a natural hot spring (both indoor and open-air baths).
Located in the Northern Kanto region of Japan, The Ritz-Carlton Nikko is two-and-a-half hours north of Tokyo. It is accessible by car or rail, and offers access to a range of outdoor activities and cultural experiences. Natural sites include the Kegon Falls and multiple Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.
Nikko, and the surrounding area, has long been known as a holy place and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the cultural, religious and architectural significance of its decorated temples and shrines. Set along Lake Chuzenji (Japan’s highest natural lake) 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.
Taking cues from its picturesque surroundings, the hotel articulates graceful Japanese design through a modern lens to bring the natural beauty of Nikko indoors. Earthy materials such as woods and stones permeate the property and are enhanced by streaming natural light. The hotel’s 94 spacious guest rooms and suites all feature a private balcony.
The property has four dining experiences for guests: The Japanese restaurant offers all-day dining and showcases the vibrant elements of Japanese cuisine; Lakehouse uses fresh, local ingredients to create “imaginative” Western dishes; The Bar, is a “sophisticated heaven of relaxation” where local ingredients are highlighted in original cocktails; and The Lobby Lounge for visitors looking to enjoy light bites and afternoon tea overlooking a garden.
Surrounded by stunning nature, culture, history and spiritual setting, the hotel offers guests various unforgettable activities ranging from exploring ancient trails, scenic waterways, and treasured shrines and temple through experiencing traditions and mysticism. Upon departure, guests will receive a sacred omamori (Japanese amulet), their own keepsake memento and a wish for safe travel.
