The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan

A luxurious Urban resort on the banks of the Kamogawa River

Nestled upon the Kamogawa riverbanks on a site favoured by Japanese nobility since the 17th century, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto continues a legacy of tranquil luxury. The riverfront location of this award-winning urban resort lends a welcome sense of seclusion, yet is located in the heart of downtown, a short stroll to the famed Gion district. All the 134 spacious guestrooms and suites are gracefully appointed with an unwavering attention to detail, designed according to the Japanese ‘miyabi’ refined aesthetic with modern sensibilities. Gorgeously realised touches include cherry blossom-themed marble bathrooms.

Impressive gastronomic experiences feature Michelin-starred Japanese Mizuki Restaurant, executing some of Kyoto’s finest sushi, exquisite sweet treats by the celebrated Pierre Hermé Paris Boutique and Haute Pâtisserie and private sake tasting master classes hosted by the in-house sommelier. Steeped in history and honed by luxury, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto celebrates Kyoto’s culture in all aspects, commencing with a kimono-clad Ritz-Carlton ‘Lady’ undertaking a private check-in while served traditional Japanese tea. Signature cultural activities include a complimentary art tour of the 400 or so contemporary Japanese artworks on display and Kimono Lunches at Ebisugawa-tei, an early 20th century wood-panelled townhouse, exquisitely restored as a unique dining chamber.
