6th Ritz-Carlton hotel in Japan to open in June

1 Comment

Marriott will expand its already considerable portfolio of luxury hotels in Japan, when The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka, opens its doors to guests on June 21.

Located in the prefectural capital of Fukuoka on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan, the 167-room hotel is housed within the main tower of the Fukuoka Daimyo Garden City complex in the tech hub of Tenjin, approximately fifteen minutes from Fukuoka Airport, the Hakata Bullet Train Station, and Hakata Port.

The 11,900-square-meter Fukuoka Daimyo Garden City complex is a core feature of the Tenjin Big Bang site, an urban renaissance project that offers tax and other regulatory incentives to woo business start-ups from abroad.

The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will occupy the first, third, and upper floors of Garden City’s main tower, which rises 25 storeys above a new 3,000 sqm park created for outdoor events.

Situated at the west end of the Tenjin district, the complex as a whole expands on the youthful energy of an area already popular for evening strolls, street music, and friendly street stalls serving up the city’s famous tonkotsu / Hakata ramen and other local specialties.

The 147 guest rooms and 20 suites of The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will be situated on the 19th to the 23rd floors, with standard rooms beginning at a minimum size of 50 square meters.

A club lounge, spa, gym, and pool will be located on the 24th floor, along with a bar overlooking the ships and sparkling lights of Hakata Bay.

In addition to a wedding chapel and banquet rooms, the hotel facilities will include a Japanese restaurant serving teppanyaki, sushi, and kaiseki multicourse menus; an all-day dining venue for Western-style cuisine; a lobby lounge and bar for cocktails and light refreshments; and a café for afternoon tea and takeout options.

Layan Architects + Designers of Melbourne, Australia are overseeing the interior design of the guest rooms and suites, public spaces, the lobby lounge and bar, café, club lounge and spa.

The hotel is the brand’s sixth property in Japan, following on sister openings in Osaka (1997), Tokyo (2007), Okinawa (2012), Kyoto (2014) and Nikko (2020).

Ritz Carlton hotels are BOSS! My wife and I stayed in one in the US after our wedding ceremony. We had the best sleep of our life at that time. They don't disappoint.
