Dusit International will gain another foothold in Japan this September with the opening of Dusit Thani Kyoto, a luxury hotel in the city’s vibrant Hanganji Monzen-machi district.
Following the opening of the lifestyle-oriented Asai Kyoto Shijo in June, Dusit Thani Kyoto aims to deliver remarkable stay experiences for luxury travellers, who seek authenticity and exclusivity in the heart of Japan's culture capital without forsaking convenience. It's only 850m from Kyoto Station, a transportation hub, which offers travel connections throughout Kyoto and to the rest of Japan.
Located in a peaceful residential area, the hotel has been designed to reflect the rich cultural heritage of Kyoto. While it's in Japan's hub of traditional culture, guests will also experience a few Thai touches. Being a Thai hospitality brand, the interior also includes references to Ayutthaya with subtle nods to the magnificent chedis for which Thailand's ancient capital is renowned for. Its 147 rooms deliver a blend of timeless elegance and contemporary charm.
Set around a serene and beautiful courtyard, the hotel offers a wide range of facilities for business and leisure, including elegant event spaces for up to 240 guests, a well-equipped fitness centre, an indoor swimming pool and signature Devarana Wellness centre. Guests will find a unique fusion of ancient Thai massages and traditional Japanese rituals, personalised wellness treatments and bespoke well-being journeys.
Dining at Dusit Thani Kyoto promises to be an exceptional experience, including a speciality Teppanyaki restaurant, a luxurious tea shop, a stylish basement bar and extraordinary dining experiences crafted by acclaimed chefs Duangporn “Bo” Songvisava and Dylan Jones from Thailand.
Renowned for their commitment to authentic Thai cuisine created with seasonal and sustainable ingredients, Bo and Dylan of Bo.lan fame will helm Ayatana, at Dusit Thani Kyoto, to offer a one-of-a-kind, multi-sensory fine dining experience where the authentic flavours of Thai cuisine meet the finest Japanese traditions. To complement this unique culinary journey, the couple has also created Kati (coconut cream in English), a dessert atelier that offers an innovative take on traditional Thai desserts.
To help guests connect with the culture and spirituality of Kyoto, Dusit’s team is on hand to help arrange memorable excursions to nearby attractions such as Nishi Honganji and Toji temples (Unesco World Heritage Sites), as well as other popular destinations and hidden gems throughout the city.
