IHG’s Six Senses brand enters Japan with Kyoto hotel

International news
Six Senses, which is part of UK-based hospitality group IHG Hotels & Resorts, has forayed into Japan with the launch of Six Senses Kyoto.

The new addition to IHG's urban collection is nestled among historic shrines and palaces of the ancient capital, offering guests a blend of holistic wellness and signature sustainability practices.

Six Senses Kyoto is designed to reflect the Heian period's heritage, with a modern twist that incorporates traditional arts for a distinctive ambience.

Its 81 guest rooms and suites have been designed with drawing inspiration from the era, when Kyoto was Japan's capital.

The speciality suites include the Premier Suite Garden with a private Japanese courtyard and the expansive 238m² three-bedroom Penthouse Suite.

Sekki, the hotel's all-day dining restaurant, offers a weekly menu and drinks inspired by Japan's 24 solar terms.

The focus is on a vegetable-forward menu that celebrates local, artisanal, and sustainable ingredients, alongside a selection of meats and seafood.
