Elite Traveler Summer 2019


Palace Hotel Tokyo’s serene moat-side setting is opposite the Imperial Palace gardens

Imbued with understated luxury, sophisticated restraint and subtle Japanese touches throughout, Palace Hotel Tokyo was envisioned and developed as a tribute to design and omotenashi (Japanese hospitality), and is the only Japanese-owned and -managed hotel to garner the highly coveted Forbes Five-Star rating — an award recognized worldwide as a prestigious mark of distinction — for four consecutive years. Its singular moat-side setting across from the Imperial Palace gardens (an 865-acre green space in the heart of the city) delivers an incomparable perspective on Tokyo’s natural splendor and the skyline that surrounds from every single guest room, its spa and nearly all of its restaurants and bars. Mere steps away is Marunouchi Naka-Dori, a tree-lined boulevard tantamount to New York City’s Madison Avenue and London’s Bond Street — a popular dining and shopping destination for gourmands and fashionistas alike. The hotel’s 290 guest rooms and suites evoke a sense of warmth and sophistication; the private balconies offer far-reaching views of the Imperial Palace gardens and the city skyline.

Occupying almost 13,000 sq ft of space on the fifth floor is evian SPA TOKYO, where French savoir faire and Asian therapies set the stage for one of Tokyo’s most refined spa experiences. The hotel’s strength in the culinary arts is also unmistakable, most especially at its exquisite Japanese outpost Wadakura, Sushi Kanesaka and the Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant, Amber Palace. At Grand Kitchen, alfresco dining on the terrace tempts travelers to linger amidst its picturesque surroundings. Palace Hotel Tokyo’s original series of Palatial Pursuits, tailored to each traveler’s interests and exclusively available to hotel guests, tempts those who wander with bespoke experiences such as art explorations, epic culinary adventures, behind-the- scenes glimpses of sumo wrestling and Kabuki (a Japanese dance show ) , and a stay-and-spa package that comes replete with an à la carte menu of fitness

pursuits to refresh both body and mind. Contact reservations@palacehotel.jp, +81 332 115 211, palacehoteltokyo.com
