Kyoto’s First Luxury Resort Honors its Third Anniversary with Festive Offerings  

NEW YORK, NY – February 1, 2017 – Opened in February 2014 as the first international luxury hotel brand in Kyoto and the first luxury urban resort in Japan, The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto is debuting a new special offer in preparation for the hotel’s upcoming third anniversary. The new Third Anniversary Celebration Package will include a unique welcome amenity, exclusive culinary experiences, luxurious accommodations, and much more.

Sitting serenely on the banks of the Kamogawa river, with sweeping views of the famous Higashiyama Mountains, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto features 134 guest rooms and suites, four dining options, and The Ritz-Carlton Spa. Regarded by some as the best Ritz-Carlton property in the world, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto combines the centuries old traditions and rich culture of Japan's ancient capital with modern luxury, bringing to life the cultural heart of Japan within the hotel’s walls.

Designed to give guests an exclusive view into Japan’s cultural capital, the Third Anniversary Celebration Package invites guests to celebrate the hotel’s imminent milestone with the following special offers such as, a welcome amenity of either a bottle of wine, a Japanese tea set, or a Japanese fan, the opportunity to draw a ticket for a chance to win prizes such as spa vouchers and dining credits and a view of the celebratory Japanese fan display in the Lobby Lounge. Additionally, for those who are looking to take a little bit of Kyoto home with them, the hotel can arrange for a visit to the Komaruya shop that crafts the traditional and modern handheld fans for purchase.

The evening of celebrations continues as guests select from three unique culinary experiences. For an authentic taste of Japanese cuisine, guests can enjoy a specially curated kaiseki menu and sake pairing at Mizuki. For Western gastronomy, guests can opt to discover the Third Anniversary menu at La Locanda, including the most popular dishes served over the last three years. Those interested in a cozy atmosphere can look to The Bar, which will be offering a unique tasting of three types of whiskey. Lastly, guests can select an exclusive Third Anniversary dessert made by the French patisserie Pierre Hermé Paris, located in the hotel’s Lobby Lounge, and enjoy a culinary illustration from tea master, Mr. Chikuitsu Fukuda, who will make freshly-made Matcha tea in the middle of the lounge.

The Third Anniversary Celebration package is valid through March 2017 and includes deluxe accommodations with daily breakfast, room upgrades, welcome amenity, qualifying in lucky draw lottery, and a culinary offering.
