Designed to evoke a traditional Japanese lantern the hotel stands out as a landmark in the bustling Tokyo streets. Combining international design elements with Japanese inspirations this is an opulent place to rest your day after a hectic day navigating lively Tokyo. Within walking distance of the Ginza district, unarguably the shopping capital of Japan, it is the ideal place to relax, yet still be close to the action. With food appealing to all five senses with exquisite Japanese touches, here healthy living becomes haute cuisine. Long gone are the days of brown rice and lentils as set ‘healthy options’ the amazing on-site restaurant offers soft shell crab with mango and pear chutney, or roast lamb with apricot stuffing to appease your taste buds, and your waistline. The Peninsula Spa is a culmination of everything you’ve heard about Japan’s hip and sophisticated capital. Modern design, treatments are delivered with delicacy and refinement.

Location

Superbly located in the prestigious Marunouchi financial district, the hotel boasts a private fleet of Rolls-Royce and BMW customised limousines to see you safely to and from the airport.

Your room

Home to 267 rooms and 47 suites you’d be mistaken if you thought quantity had prevailed over quality. Each room is incredibly spacious, visually stylish and among the most comfortable in Tokyo. Choose a suite and you’ll enjoy a gorgeous sun-drenched balcony where you can gaze over Hibiya Park and the opposite Imperial Palace Gardens. Inside you’ll enjoy an expansive dining room, opulent living space featuring a grand piano and a spa set beside a double window offering commanding views of the city below. Guests will enjoy a mini gym and a fully equipped kitchen and pantry. Other features include an outside temperature and humidity indicator, so you’ll know just what to pick from your dressing room with radio and weather panel.

Why we like it

They’ve thought of every possible guest convenience, from bedside curtain controls to in-room nail polish dryers. Even the restaurant, Peter, is a lesson in contemporary design. Guests enter the dining space through a steel structure tunnel and exit onto a catwalk, which leads onto a stage featuring an interactive video wall displaying signature images of Tokyo and Hong Kong. Seriously, they’ve thought of everything.
