Those in club rooms can kick back at the Pacific Club Lounge, which features indoor spaces and an outdoor garden, with all-day refreshments including cocktails and canapés at sundown.


City oasis in Tokyo

Design-conscious travellers will adore the BELLUSTAR TOKYO, A Pan Pacific Hotel, which was designed by award-winning Norm Architects and renowned interior designer Keiji Ashizawa. The hotel is located on the 39th to 47th floors of Tokyu Kabukicho Tower, and boasts impressive vistas from seven-metre wide windows over one of Asia’s most striking skylines. With 12 room types, there is something to cater to all needs and tastes, from the entry-level Studio Room (41-48 sqm), which is decked out in traditional Japanese decor, to the 277 sqm Sora The Sky Villa, which features a spa treatment room, kitchen and Jacuzzi. Guests looking to sample the finest Wagyu beef can check out Teppan Ten-yu, a Teppanyaki restaurant located on the 45th floor, while at Sushi JIN-È, guests can savour Edomaestyle sushi while admiring views of Mount Fuji. Don’t forget to book a lofty wellness treatment at SPA Sunya on the top floor of the hotel, which features a spa lounge and treatment rooms offering Japaneseinspired therapies.

Artistic pleasures in Tokyo

Alternatively, why not book a stay at HOTEL GROOVE SHINJUKU, A PARKROYAL Hotel, inspired by the lively entertainment scene of Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district. Head to the 17th floor to mingle with other guests and locals. You’ll find the main hotel restaurant alongside a bar, two private event rooms and breezy open-air terraces, one of which features an outdoor LED screen for movie events. Looking for a truly special space? Check into one of three GROOVE rooms designed by leading Japanese artists. Yoshiaki Kaihatsu’s room is inspired by one of his most famous works, Styrofoam, and repurposes disused styrofoam into canvases for pictures and light fixtures. Designed to resemble an artist’s studio, Tomoyuki Washio’s room features mosaic tile artworks, while in Takuro Tamayama’s room, the walls appear as if they have become the floor, which creates the sensation of being in a weightless space.
