Look out over the silvery cityscape of Tokyo from the city’s tallest skyscraper, housing the glamorous Ritz-Carlton Hotel with its indoor lap pool, sleek spa, Michelin-starred restaurant and so much more besides.
Without a doubt, this is one of the most exquisite luxury hotels in Tokyo, exuding that quintessential Ritz-Carlton elegance through marble flooring, sumptuous textiles, tall ceilings and plush sofas, while always feeling stylishly contemporary in its ambience. The star of the show, however, is the view: a combination of wraparound windows and a supremely elevated spot afford some of the best vistas of Tokyo, with its Sky Tower, Imperial Palace Gardens and – on a clear day – Mount Fuji in the distance, that never fail to enthral.
Beyond its attractive aesthetic, the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo is a hotel with its guests’ satisfaction firmly in mind. Therefore, services throughout are immaculate, from the check-in to concierge, wait staff to spa therapists, ensuring that your Tokyo visit is seamless and maximised to the full. Then, accommodation is as luxurious as you’d expect, with large windows for city-gazing moments and mod-cons aplenty.
Moving through to the shared spaces, there’s a Club Lounge that’s exclusive to certain room categories only, on top of a clutch of upscale bars and restaurants – including the Michelin-starred Azure 45. Mouth-watering cuisine, expertly crafted cocktails, and stunning city views: what more could you wish for?
Rounding it all off in Ritz-Carlton fashion is the wellness centre, a place that may just get in the way of all your plans to tour Tokyo! Clad in a huge swimming pool and hot tub – both with views over the city – plus a steam room, sauna and gym, you’ll certainly be tempted to while away a few hours here each day.
The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo succeeds in offering its guests high-quality accommodation dripping in top-class amenities. Your room will be ornamented with a king-size bed dressed in down-feather pillows, a bathroom with television, tub and shower, Asprey toiletries, bathrobes, a Toto toilet, and there’s also tea/coffee making facilities along with a minibar. The look of each guestroom is slightly different to the next, though all are exceptionally tasteful with rich wood, light shades and wide windows framing the city beyond.
A Michelin-starred restaurant on floor 45 of the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo, with fine French fare and sleek interiors to boot. Gaze out over the glittering city lights as you dine on some of the best cuisine in Tokyo.
This elevated eatery specialises in exquisite cuts of beef and fresh seafood, best savoured with a sommelier-recommended bottle of wine. This is also where an irresistible breakfast buffet is served daily for hotel guests.
The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo would not quite be complete without its incredible Hinokizaka restaurant; a love letter to Japanese cuisine. It is divided into four spaces dedicated to different culinary traditions in Japan: Kaiseki, Sushi, Tempura and Teppanyaki, and also features a tea house and chef’s table for private gourmet experiences.
Come for a mouth-watering afternoon tea accompanied by live music at the Lobby Lounge, an elegant space with vaulted ceilings and works of art adorning the walls. Drinks are served from 11am onwards too, perfect for a pre-dinner aperitif.
Sip exceptional cocktails at the Ritz-Carlton Bar, where the signature drink is their Diamond is Forever Martini – festooned with a one-carat diamond, no less. Live music rounds the experience off beautifully.
A casual space for a quick bite or cup of coffee to keep you going throughout the day.
Indulge your taste buds (and your eyes) at La Boutique, where master pastry chefs craft artisan chocolates and cube-shaped cakes, either to have in or take away and enjoy later.
Activities and Entertainment
The Ritz-Carlton has curated a fantastic menu of personal experiences in Tokyo, from sake and whisky tasting with expert sommeliers to flower-arranging (ikebana) classes, and learning about the history of it all. It doesn’t stop there though: you can also do karate, wadaiko (Japanese drumming), manga or running, following one of the hotel’s Tokyo routes. Meanwhile, children are taken care of just as much as adults, with the Ritz-Kids program providing distraction and entertainment for little ones. They can even have a mini-planetarium installed in the bedroom, with LED lanterns casting constellations on the ceiling (in the Carlton Suite), or try origami and animal balloon-making lessons in-house.
The hotel’s wellness centre is one of its greatest assets, thanks to a huge indoor lap pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, gym and beauty salon. Indulge in an ESPA spa therapy, using rose quartz or Bakuhan stones to harness the power of nature, or simply relish a relaxing swim in the pool with twinkling skyline views – a real treat for any city centre hotel in Tokyo.
Roppongi, Tokyo, Japan. The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo boasts a lofty perch in the capital’s tallest building, located in the upmarket district of Roppongi. Here, whisky bars and art galleries rub shoulders with high-end restaurants and shops, so you can relax in the knowledge that this is a very cleverly positioned resort. The Narita International Airport is an hour and a half’s drive away, while bullet train stations Shinagawa and Tokyo are both a 30-minute drive.
