The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, part of Marriott International, has expanded its Asia Pacific portfolio with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko in Japan.

Located in the Northern Kanto region, the 94-room Ritz-Carlton, Nikko is set amidst a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The property takes cues from its picturesque surroundings and articulates Japanese design through a modern lens to bring the natural beauty of Nikko indoors. Earthy materials are improved by streaming natural light.

All guest rooms and suites of The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko feature a private balcony that flows with a lounge area.

Marriott International President Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China) Rajeev Menon said: “Following much anticipation surrounding its debut, we are thrilled to finally open the doors to The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko and to continue the growth of the luxury segment in Japan.

“Today marks an extremely monumental day for our brand and the entire company as we set the bar in luxury travel, embracing the new normal, while consistently instilling confidence in travel amongst all of our guests.”

The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko features a Japanese Restaurant that offers all-day dining; The Bar; and The Lobby Lounge. It also has The Spa that showcases treatments inspired by the abundance of natural revitalising elements.

Guests of The Ritz-Carlton can also take part in a nightly meditation at the lobby area.

The hotel takes advantage of its location within Nikko National Park and offers a wide range of activities that showcase the offerings of its highland setting.

At present, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company operates more than 100 hotels in 30 countries and territories.
