Starwood opens first Luxury Collection hotel in Japan
The doors are now open to Starwood’s latest hotel: Suiran, part of The Luxury Collection portfolio and the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty scheme.
The Suiran in Kyoto’s Arashiyama district opens this week and will combine the hotel chain’s existing luxury concierge service with traditional Japanese hospitality.
Overlooking the Arashiyama hills, and situated within the grounds of Tenryuji temple, a World Heritage site, the hotel offers 39 guest rooms ranging in size from 500-1000 square feet (46-93 sq meters).
The hotel also features a traditional Japanese open-air bath and a number of Japanese well-being treatments, while the menu at the hotel’s restaurant, Kyo Suiran (pictured above), is focused on local flavors and traditional cuisine but with a modern twist.
“With an esteemed past as well as a Japanese-style experience defined by renowned Japanese hospitality and cuisine, Suiran will resonate with sophisticated and affluent guests seeking a different, more refined side of travel,” said Hiroshi Komoto, General Manager.
