With many of my friends traveling East to Asia this year I thought to share a spectacular hotel package and came up with this one in Tokyo, Japan.
The number five in Japanese culture is a favored number that can denote five senses, five Buddhist principles, and/or five flavors in their cuisine, amongst other items of cultural significance. Forbes Travel Guide awarded Palace Hotel Tokyo its coveted Five-Star rating, the only independent Japanese brand ever to achieve such recognition. As the hotel approaches its fifth anniversary, and to celebrate this Five-Star rating, it is creating five bespoke stay experiences over the next year.
This “Discerning Tokyo” getaway is the first, and highlights the luxuries to be savored at the hotel while introducing guests to Tokyo’s imperial heritage. Begin with two nights of accommodation in a Club Grand Deluxe or Club Deluxe with Balcony room. Savor an eight-course, signature lunch for two at Crown restaurant accompanied by five wine pairings by award-winning Chef Manabu Ichizuka. Apply a 10,000 yen credit to a cocktails & canapés meet-up at Royal Bar, named one of “Asia’s Best Bars” by Drinks International, where you will sip cocktails by “World’s Best Bartender” winner Manabu Ohtake.
A guided, personally tailored “Astute Aesthetes” tour awaits. You might include nearby Akasaka Palace or other cultural or artistic sights that interest you. Hurry, the package expires at the end of August.
The contemporary 290 room Palace Hotel Toyko features 10 distinctive restaurants & bars - including elegant French fine dining, exquisite Japanese and an Old World-style cigar & martini bar. Shop, dine or relax in the evian SPA TOKYO. With so much to offer by way of Japan’s culture and arts, do not miss this one.
