IHG Signs Regent Hotel in Kyoto, Japan

(11 Aug 2021)
IHG has signed a Regent Hotel in Kyoto, Japan.

Set within an 100-year old
garden that was landscaped by renowned gardener, Kumakichi Kato,
the 86-room Regent Kyoto’s location is currently home to the famous restaurant, Tsuruya, which is recognised among Kyoto’s
top dining destinations, having held a number of Michelin Stars
over the years.

With more than 100 years’ history, Tsuruya is
housed in a sukiya-style wooden building that was designed by
celebrated architect Isoya Yoshida. It was originally developed as
accommodation for the Japanese imperial family and honourable
guests for their visits to Kyoto, and has welcomed some of the
most important cultural and political figures in the world,
including members of the Japanese Imperial family, Queen Elizabeth
II, George Bush and François
Mitterrand, among other heads of state and dignitaries.


Regent
Kyoto will be designed to incorporate Tsuruya and the
gardens, and will offer everything guests would expect from an
upper-luxury hotel, including a lobby lounge, fitness centre and
spa, along with several restaurants in addition to Tsuruya.

The Regent Kyoto is scheduled to open in 2024.

Sakae Sugahara, Director & Partner, Chief
Investment Officer, GI Capital Management, said, “When
we made the decision to develop a luxury hotel at one of Kyoto’s
most prestigious addresses, which is home to the famous Tsuruya restaurant and gardens, we knew that that the hotel would need to be highly respectful and complementary to Kyoto’s
heritage and sit a level above other luxury properties in the
market. Following a long selection process, it became clear that
Regent was the perfect fit: with its deep heritage and serene and
imaginative design, it will bring a modern era of upper-luxury
to Kyoto. We are proud to partner with IHG Hotels & Resorts to
open Japan’s first Regent Hotel under IHG management, and look
forward to a successful future together.”

The highly respected Regent Hotels & Resorts
brand was founded by hotelier Robert H. Burns in 1970 and acquired by
IHG and Formosa in 2018. Since then, IHG has added 6 hotels to the
pipeline, including Regent Shanghai, Regent Phu Quoc, Regent Bali, Regent Kuala Lumpur,
and Regent Hong Kong.

Instead of staying and passing time in a roadside motel, use the time to visit off the track villages. Attempt to give a hand in agricultural work for example and share a drink and a snack.
