The sheer volume of magnificent temples and shrines in Kyoto will keep your camera clicking away for days, each seeming more inspiring and beautiful than the last. And, still, the city’s traditions run deeper than ‘just’religious monuments, producing world class restaurants and generations of innovative artisans skilled in traditional Japanese arts like kimonos, pottery and lacquer. Set against this backdrop you’ll find the Hyatt Regency, boasting the sheer luxury synonymous with the Hyatt name yet staying true to the traditions and artistry of Kyoto.
Arrange a limousine to take you from Osaka Itami Domestic Airport in style. If you are arriving from somewhere exotic, the Haruka Express train will shoot you over from Osaka Kansai International Airport in just over an hour. The Kyoto Japan rail station is a meandering stroll away so you’re easily equipped to explore surrounding areas – and if a spot of shopping is what you are after the Shijo Shopping Street and Nishiki Market are both easily within walking distance.
Natural light and breath-taking views go hand in hand with this hotel and each room benefits from the gorgeous surroundings. For a luxurious night’s sleep, a suite will offer a king bedroom with dressing room and spacious bathroom, plus a traditional Japanese living room with short table and seats.
Why we like it
Kyoto is home to 16 UNESCO World heritage sites, so your days will undoubtedly be busy hopping from one awe-inspiring place to the next. That’s why, when it comes to the evenings, you’ll want to rest your weary head somewhere lavish. We can’t think of anywhere better to relax the body and mind and reflect on a wonderful day than the Riraku Spa at the Hyatt Regency – the massage and spa treatments combine Eastern and Western traditions to leave you truly refreshed and recharged.
