The Brand-New, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko (Japan) Reveals Ritz-Carlton Suite

October 16, 2020 Luxury Hotels No Comments Email Email

The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko – which debuted on July 15, 2020 amidst a UNESCO World Heritage Site – offers a pristine haven in the historic mountain region of Nikko, where a rich untouched natural environment entwines with centuries-old traditions. Located 2.5 hours north of Tokyo by car or rail, the brand-new hotel introduced a new level of luxury to Nikko and is an ideal bucket list destination for those thinking about future travel – from rescheduled family vacations, to postponed friend getaways, to re-do weddings, and more. Travelers seeking to make their bucket list trip even more luxurious can book The Ritz-Carlton Suite, the top suite in the 94-room hotel which serves as the property’s “Crown Jewel.”

Located on the fifth floor of the main building, The Ritz-Carlton Suite commands 2,982 square feet and features a luxurious king bedroom area. The luxurious suite offers a distinct living, dining and service kitchen areas, as well as its own fitness area, massage treatment room and spacious bathroom with an open, Japanese-style layout with a rain shower and separate tub. Boasting the best views in the entire hotel, the suite offers panoramic views overlooking the majestic Lake Chuzenji and Mount Nantai. Guests can take in Nikko’s natural beauty and crisp air while lounging on daybeds on their engawa (balcony) or enjoy the views through the suite’s dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows. The lounge also features a telescope for stargazing.

The suite’s design articulates Japan’s delicate minimalism through a modern lens to bring the natural beauty of Nikko indoors. Earthy materials such as woods and stones permeate the space and are enhanced by streaming natural light. The interiors are inspired by Kanuma-kumiko, a traditional craft of Tochigi Prefecture, with thoughtful design touches including mashiko pottery wares from Tochigi Prefecture and locally curated Japanese paintings capturing the Nikko Mountains.

The bedroom is uniquely designed with a spacious king-size bed – centered in the room in a floating style, which has a partition door designed with the motif of Kanuma-kumiko for guests seeking more privacy. The area is connected to an engawa lounge where guests can enjoy the peaceful view of Lake Chuzenji from their bedside.

The spacious living area has plenty of seating and a dining table that can seat up to eight people, allowing guests to enjoy gourmet culinary experiences in the comfort and privacy of their own suite. A modern gas fireplace adds a touch of warmth to the space as well.

Though The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko offers an incredible spa facility including the brand’s first-ever Japanese onsen hot springs experience, The Ritz-Carlton Suite features a private spa treatment room that allows guests to enjoy a relaxing massage or other treatment without having to leave their suite. A state-of-the-art, mobile EIEN steamer is also available in-suite to help promote moisturized, rejuvenated skin. In addition, the suite also has a private fitness area complete with high-end equipment including Technogym’s Kinesis and a balance ball.

Also, not to be forgotten is the private kitchen for guests to feel at home – furnished with Millet’s IH stove, a microwave, refrigerator, and Euro curve wine cooler to serve a variety of dishes. There is also a space for guests to work remotely or immerse themselves in a good book.

The Luxury of Space: Book the Entire Fifth Floor
Travelers seeking the ultimate luxury of space can reserve the entire fifth floor of the Main Tower of the hotel comprising only three rooms – The Ritz-Carlton Suite, Suite, and a guest room – that are all connecting. With all of The Ritz-Carlton Suite’s amenities and more, this setup has everything one might need and plenty of space for friends and family – from a family rescheduling their annual global adventure to a couple who had to postpone their nuptials. For weddings, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko can work with the nearby Shinto shrines to organize a private ceremony for a one-of-a-kind wedding ritual experience in The Ritz-Carlton Suite.
