Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide just announced the opening of the Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Kyoto. The property is Starwood’s first Luxury Collection hotel in Japan.
Located in the Arashiyama district in the western part of Kyoto, the new hotel offers views of the Arashiyama hills, a National Historic Site. The 39 Ryokan-style guestrooms are decorated with traditional Japanese motifs, and have “culturally significant” colors inspired by nature.
Suiran has two private spa treatment rooms, which include a Japanese-style open-air bath. The spa’s signature SEIRAN treatment includes a body massage with tea seed oil and facial treatment with jade stones.
The hotel has two restaurants; the Kyo Suiran, which serves authentic and locally inspired cuisine, and café Saryo Hassui, offering dishes focused around Japanese green tea.
