Have you ever dreamt of that incomparable getaway? One of culture and enlightenment? Well, I’m here to share just such a respite with you. A stay that embodies a sensual exploration of not only the five known – taste, touch, sight, sound, and scent, but the added sense of chi. You know, that balance, that ultimate one-ness. The iconic Palace Hotel Tokyo delivers just that opportunity, through Japanese hospitality at its finest! And if you have never experienced this refined and dignified pampering, it’s a must.
Inviting to the sense of touch, experience the rituals and relaxation under the masterful hands in the evian SPA facilities. Appealing to the sight, the minimalistic, contemporary décor is the ideal, understated backdrop to fully reveal the incomparable views of the Imperial Palace gardens through floor to ceiling glass walls and windows. Taste buds are tantalized by an array of culinary options. The Grand Kitchen’s international fare offers French, Italian, Spanish and American flavors that are elevated with a Japanese touch. Then there is the privacy of GO with fresh cuisine from land or sea prepared on traditional teppanyaki grill. There is the option to savor the dining experience secluded behind the naguri-style woodwork in Wadakura.
Get transported beyond the quiet, sophisticated ambience of the indoors and delight in the cultural exploration of the sounds of Tokyo. Whether the day’s venture is to stroll down the picturesque, tree lined boulevard of Marunouchi Naka Dori to the city’s most sought after shopping and dining excursions or just remain indoors to explore the 10 distinctive restaurants and bars, seductive spa packages, and scenic views wrapped in history, culture and art – become immersed and find your chi, in the sensually and luxuriously stimulating Palace Hotel Tokyo www.en.palacehoteltokyo.com
