The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto pays tribute to the city's rich cultural heritage, while maintaining a level of luxury and service befitting a 5-star hotel. The downtown resort’s design concept is based on five key words and feelings: Utage (Festive), Seido (serenity and movement), Miyabi (elegance), Hana (splendid) and Nagomi (harmony). Hotel interiors include patterned motifs created by local artisans, as well as Zen gardens and water features.
The immaculately designed hotel rooms and suites at The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto feature spacious layouts and gorgeously realised details, tempting guests to forgo exploration in favor of relaxed seclusion.
Showcasing both Japanese and Western cuisines, the hotel elevates the art of fine dining to new heights. Classic Japanese cuisine is celebrated at Mizuki, Italian fare is prepared with local ingredients at La Locanda and sweets from Pierre Hermé Paris are tailored to each restaurant.
Located within the hotel, the Ritz-Carlton Spa has established itself as an oasis of wellbeing amidst the energy of downtown Kyoto. A soothing waterfall provides the tranquil soundtrack to a wealth of pampering massage and beauty therapies; luxurious ESPA products, made from the highest quality botanical essences and marine actives, complement the experience. The spa offers seven treatment rooms, including one spa suite, as well as a relaxation room, a steam room, a dry sauna and a 20-meter swimming pool.
