The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

To stay at Ritz-Carlton Tokyo is to bow to the high alter of Asian hospitalty and refined design. The location stretches higher still. Set in an ultra-modern skyscraper in the downtown district, it starts on the 45th floor, with floor-to-ceiling windows affording mind-boggling visions of the city’s distinctive skyline, which stretch all the way to Mount Fiji on clear days. But that’s not the most impressive part. The urban idyll lives and breathes local culture, with rooms blending together emblematic dark wood and zen-inducing whitewashed minimalism to cossetting effect. There’s a masculinity to the space, perhaps due to the fact that, along with numerous native visitors and luxury lovers, it appeals to business travellers, too. Clubby lounges with tall ceilings and a glossy, moody-hued bar punctuate the communal areas providing a sense of relaxed ease to the environs. A modern spa houses a generously sized pool. And completing it are a trio of restaurants including a vibrant Japanese and the flagship fine-diner, Azure 45, which brings classic French cuisine bang up to date.
