The Roku Kyoto, LXR Hotels & Resorts is set to open on September 16, 2021.

Situated in a tranquil area along the foothills of the Takagamine Sanzan (Three Mountains of Takagamine) within northern Kyoto, the hotel is just at walking distance from the iconic Kinkaku-ji Golden Pavilion and other well-known temples including the Koetsuji and Genkoan temples.

The Roku Kyoto, LXR Hotels & Resorts will feature 114 guestrooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant along with a cafe and a bar, a spa facility, and a fitness centre.

The hotel pays homage to the sublime elements of both traditional Kyoto design and Japanese minimalistic elegance. The hotel will be part of the 28.6-acre Shozan Resort Kyoto, a luxury enclave currently home to some of Kyoto’s most notable and idyllic Japanese gardens, historic architecture, and authentic tea houses.

Feisal Jaffer, global head, LXR Hotels & Resorts said:

“We are thrilled with LXR’s accelerating momentum, which would not be possible without the partnership of the most sophisticated owners and developers around the world, like Tokyu Land Corporation.”

“No two hotels are alike – every property is a bespoke collaboration with its owner, resulting in a rich guest experience that is authentic to its destination, yet world-class in execution. In addition to Roku Kyoto, we have wonderful additions to the LXR resort portfolio in some of the world’s most picturesque destinations. These include the recently opened Susona Bodrum on the beautiful Aegean coastline and Zemi Beach House in idyllic Anguilla, our first hotel in the Americas, with several more to be announced soon.”

Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president of Luxury and Lifestyle, Asia Pacific, Hilton said:

“There is a distinct story behind every LXR property that builds on the promise of delivering personalised attention and luxurious, yet locally immersive, experiences for our guests.

“With the cultural threads that are woven through every part of the hotel – from the architecture to culinary experiences and the surrounding environment – combined with the unique identity of the hotel and backed by Hilton’s expertise in delivering personalised experiences, I am confident Roku Kyoto is perfectly placed to be the epitome of a peaceful retreat with a deep connection to the alluring city.”
