Hotel The Mitsui Kyoto is set to open on November 3 this year, in partnership with Marriott International’s The Luxury Collection brand.
The new hotel, which is designed under the brand concept “embracing Japan’s beauty”, has 161 guest rooms, including 22 suites. The Onsen Suites feature outdoor natural hot spring baths, set in private garden quarters with trees, lanterns, and stonework.
The hotel has two restaurants: a teppan restaurant that combines the traditions and techniques of French and Japanese cuisine called Toki, and the all-day dining Italian restaurant, Forni. They offer dishes made with select ingredients sourced both locally from Kyoto as well as from other areas in Japan and overseas. Diners can enjoy a special meal while viewing the delightful Japanese courtyard garden and water feature, says the hotel.
The Spa area features a thermal spring and a private spa. Water is sourced from an onsite hot spring to provide guests with a unique onsen (hot spring) bathing experience during their stay, says the hotel. Guests can also enjoy a natural onsen bathing experience in complete privacy at the Private Onsen.
