Capella Hotels and Resorts has announced its plan to open Capella Kyoto, a luxury facility, in Miyagawa-chō district, Japan.
The four-storey hotel with 92 rooms is scheduled to open its doors in mid-2025.
The hotel, designed by architect firm Kengo Kuma and Associates, showcases the rich Higashiyama culture and heritage through its artworks and interior design.
The luxurious rooms with a touch of Japanese culture promise to offer guests an immersive experience.
Capella Kyoto is well connected to key districts and heritage sites including Kenninji Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple and Ninenzaka tourist zone.
The hotel features a Japanese garden courtyard. The bamboo courtyard, also called ‘ichigo-ichie’ (one life, one moment), promises a relaxed outing.
Auriga Spa, Capella’s signature service, uses organic ingredients and traditional techniques to offer comfort.
Capella Kyoto has several dining options including its signature restaurant near the inner bamboo courtyard, a Japanese restaurant with a garden, and Carte Blanche that offers unique food and beverage combinations.
The Capella Kyoto project was developed by NTT Urban Development Corporation.
NTT Urban Development Corporation president and chief executive officer Hiroshi Tsujigami said, “Built on the site of the beloved Shinmichi Elementary School, Capella Kyoto will be one that will live out the memory and culture of the region and create new values.”
Capella Hotel Group president Cristiano Rinaldi said, “Filled with culture and heritage, Kyoto is the perfect place for us to establish a presence in Japan as the city is very much aligned with the group’s visionary curation of culture and experience.”
