Perfectly at home in Tokyo’s bustling city centre, The Peninsula Tokyo hotel is a beacon of five-star luxury, famously attentive service and more onsite facilities than most.
Why not begin your stay with a stint in the spa? This evocatively-adorned space is among the best spa centres in Tokyo, romantically-lit like the inside of a Japanese lantern and offering all manner of Oriental, traditional and European-inspired treatments, plus aromatherapy steam rooms, heated beds, thermal suites and saunas to lose yourself in.
There’s a luxe indoor heated swimming pool here too, and a Jacuzzi with surrounding loungers which overlook the city below; all making for a rare treat when staying in such a busy metropolis as Tokyo undoubtedly is.
However, it’s not only about the spa, as any stay at The Peninsula Tokyo is also one of Michelin-standard food (in one of the five onsite restaurants), a glamorous top-floor bar offering inspired cityscape views, and impossibly attentive service from the staff and concierge alike.
Whether making use of the hotel’s Rolls-Royce transfers or planning a VIP experience in Tokyo, you could not be in better hands than here. Interior design cues also follow this immaculate blueprint, as communal areas are an individually-themed delight of either nostalgic Japanese stylings or cutting-edge, contemporary design, often with those city views never far from sight thanks to walls of glass throughout the building.
And when it comes to unwinding in your guestroom or suite after a day exploring the highlights of Tokyo, expect an airy and modern space, well-equipped though anything but cluttered and an absolute delight to come home to each day.
Among many other things, guestrooms and suites at The Peninsula Tokyo are known for their generous size, beginning at 579sq ft and going up to nearly 4,000sq ft in the largest room category. The interior design and decor scheme do in fact remain consistent throughout all of them, so huge windows or entire walls of glass, contemporary furnishings and either a lounge area or separate living room are included for every guest There are also separate rain showers and a jetted bathtub, smart room controls, humidity and air-conditioning, designer toiletries, bathrobes and slippers, flat-screen TVs, a minibar and coffee maker, self-contained dressing room and Wi-Fi throughout. The views then vary and tend to get more impressive the higher up the building you go, particularly in the larger suites and it can all be enjoyed from your spacious living room – if choosing one of those. Every room category also comes with at least one king-size bed, though twin options and other configurations are also available if needed.
Refined Cantonese cuisine in a suitably atmospheric setting, as at the Hei Fung Terrace you’ll be dining among traditional hanging lanterns, beautifully carved dark wood furnishings and an all-round nostalgic décor scheme that makes firm nods towards the Japan of old. The fine dining menu here changes constantly, though the high standard and elegance of each delicate dish certainly does not, and if looking for a truly romantic meal while in Tokyo, you can hire one of the Terrace’s private dining rooms – two of which overlook the Imperial Palace.
Perfectly positioned on The Peninsula’s 24th and top floor, at least one visit to Peter simply must feature on your Tokyo itinerary. This lively, bright and breezy restaurant-bar is encompassed by walls of glass, which not only let in plenty of daylight to show off the room’s snazzy chandeliers and glitzy décor, but also means the most picturesque cityscape views while you dine. The dining here is just as exquisite as with all of The Peninsula’s restaurants, and moves between traditional Japanese and one or two international-inspired dishes and fresh seafood too. That’s the restaurant, though Peter’s adjoining cocktail bar is just as impressive with its chrome art installations, purple neon lights illuminating the walls and extensive drinks menu.
Serving delectable dishes derived from ancient Kaiseki cuisine cooking techniques, The Peninsula’s Michelin-standard Kyoto Tsuruya Restaurant is one of the ultimate dining experiences in Tokyo. You can either tuck yourself away on one of the exclusive tables here, or sit up at the bar and admire through an open kitchen as these masterful chefs prepare most unusual, though delicious dishes.
If it’s possible to take your eyes away from the quite mesmerising central chandelier that dominates The Lobby, turn your gaze to the stacks of handmade cakes, sweets, pastries and sandwiches that this high-tea room is loved for! The Lobby makes for a lovely, laidback break during a busy afternoon sightseeing to simply sit back, sip a cup of fine tea and get ready for whatever the evening holds.
The Peninsula Boutique and Cafe is a nice alternative if looking for a light bite to eat, coffee or salad during the day either in-house or on the go. The homemade pastries are particularly good!
Activities and Entertainment
As a luxury city centre Tokyo hotel, you could not be better placed to enjoy the capital’s highlights while staying at The Peninsula, with the Imperial Theatre, Tokyo Tower, Imperial Palace and boutique outlets of Ginza all within touching distance. In fact, the concierge team here can go one further and arrange exclusive access to some of Tokyo’s main attractions through their ‘keys to the city’ programme. These include private shopping at Tokyo Plaza, advance theatre tickets and jumping the queue at various prestigious restaurants. Then, if travelling to Japan as a family, The Peninsula Academy is essentially the hotel’s kids club, with lots of fun and unusual activities such as origami classes, the Pokémon experience, karate and wind chime workshops – another welcome addition as, if nothing else, it means more time being available to spend in the spa!
The Peninsula Tokyo boasts an enviable list of onsite facilities and services for such a centrally located city hotel. Their onsite spa, indoor swimming pool, sauna, aromatherapy steam rooms, ice fountain and Jacuzzi overlooking the streets below are all nothing short of heavenly, as good as any top spa and wellness centre you’ll find in Tokyo. There is a well-equipped gym hotel, the Peninsula Academy (kids’ club), Wi-Fi throughout, a supremely attentive concierge team and if needed, a fleet of Rolls-Royce cars available to short transfers.
