Feel the love at Thann Sanctuary, a temple to the Asian natural skincare brand. Therapists here blend Thai, Swedish and Ayurvedic techniques and have exotic scents and natural products to make you feel relaxed in no time. Honed to your needs, the varied menu includes massages, facial care and all manner of scrubs and soothing oils.
Art is at the centre of the design in Park Hotel, and there are special rooms that feature their own uniquely designed murals. You might choose from a minimal, contemporary motif, calligraphy, a bamboo forest, or mountain views - but all are equally mesmerising. Some of the luxurious suites have floor-to-ceiling windows with magnificent views; while beauty brand Thann has designed its own spa-style spaces with amenities, herbal teas and soothing light projections. Comfy beds, warming colours and natural materials come as standard throughout.
The hotel comes with its own art shop, Tanagokoro, where you can pick up traditional Japanese handicrafts, books and original artefacts. A personal fitness centre on the 26th floor features state-of-the-art equipment and there's even a spa too. The knowledgeable concierge is always on hand to offer tips on sightseeing, transport and arranging tours and excursions.
Bistronomy best describes the culinary flair at Tateru Yoshino Bis, which has a casual feel while employing some seriously good French cooking, with outstanding views to match. Kaiseki cuisine can be enjoyed at Hanasanshou, giving you an unforgettable taste of this Japanese multi-course style. Seasonal ingredients come from a renowned Kyoto farm, and there are over 50 types of shochu to boot. Cocktail bars, cafés, a bakery and private salons complete the picture.
