Fusing old and new to create ‘a modern day luxury ryokan’ the new Ritz-Carlton Kyoto is set on the banks of the scenic Kamogawa River and enjoys 180-degree panoramic views of the famed Higashiyama mountains.

The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto in the evening.

Within walking distance of many of the city’s 17 World Heritage sites, the hotel is imbued with a sense of zen- like Japanese style – from the traditional Meiji-era house which is part of the design to the delicious Edomae- style sushi available in the dining room and the Imabari robes and local artwork you’ll find in your room.

A tatami suite.

Stunning modern bathroom.

For a truly traditional experience try the serene Japanese- style ‘tatami’ suites or ask about the outdoor gardens modelled after tsukimidai ‘moon viewing’ decks (available with some suites).

The spa at the Ritz-Carlton Kyoto.

Couples will love: a Precious Time Together treatment in the couple’s suite of the indulgent on-site spa, located at the base of a waterfall – and the intimate sense of calm refinement.
