Hilton has opened its 500th hotel in the Asia Pacific region, with a property located in Japan’s Nagasaki.
Hilton Nagasaki is located to the west of Nagasaki Station and is directly connected to the new Dejima Messe Nagasaki convention centre, with easy access to tourist attractions such as Mount Inasa and UNESCO World Heritage sites including Glover Garden and Oura Cathedral.
The hotel features 196 rooms and four suites, all of which include Digital Key access and TVs which can be connected to smartphones. Facilities include an executive lounge for guests staying on the executive floors, flexible event spaces, a wedding chapel, fitness centre and a hot bath.
The hotel’s contemporary design draws on Nagasaki’s history as a trading port city, with blue design features included throughout the property to symbolise the sea.
There are four dining outlets which include Japanese restaurant Tamatsurumi, which serves teppanyaki, tempura and sushi; Chinese restaurant Fukukairo; all-day dining restaurant De Vaert, which serves a buffet of seasonal delicacies and dishes that reflect the city’s heritage; and lounge and bar Seven Seas, which offers afternoon tea and evening cocktails.
Alan Watts, president of Asia Pacific Hilton, commented:
“The opening of Hilton Nagasaki is especially significant as it marks our 500th hotel in Asia Pacific. Reaching such a milestone during this uncertain time is a testament to Hilton’s resilience and commitment to setting the benchmark for hospitality in the world’s most sought-after destinations.
“Nagasaki has long represented a gateway to Japan, and we are delighted to partner with Gloverhill Inc. to bring the first Hilton hotel to the city as we continue to expand our footprint in key destinations across the region.”
Akiyoshi Matsufuji, president and the representative director of Gloverhill Inc., added:
“Nagasaki is undergoing a period of great transformation — one that occurs only every 100 years. This includes the opening of one of the largest convention centers in West Japan, the upcoming launch of the West Kyushu Shinkansen which provides great access to Nagasaki, and the urban redevelopment of the site of the former Nagasaki Prefectural Government Office building. In such a time, we are honored to manage Hilton Nagasaki and contribute to Nagasaki’s tourism industry. We will work closely with our local partners to offer guests an outstanding experience with hospitality that is truly unique to Nagasaki.”
