Far East Hospitality has taken over the management of the Village Hotel Ariake Tokyo and rebranded it as the Far East Village Hotel Ariake.
The 306-key property is the first hotel under Far East's Village brand to expand its presence outside of Singapore.
Located in Koto Ward in the eastern part of Tokyo, Far East Village Hotel Ariake will mainly target the domestic business community who will be attending conferences and exhibitions at Tokyo Big Sight, one of Japan's premier exhibition arenas and convention centers.
Tokyo Big Sight is just a few minute's away by car or 22 minutes by foot. The Ariake Tennis Park and the Ariake Arena are also close by.
"We live in bizarre times today, but it is never too soon to start looking for opportunities. Domestic travel has picked up in Japan since the easing of travel curbs in June. After careful evaluation and consideration, we decided that now is the right time to open," said Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive of Far East Hospitality. "We have confidence in the domestic market, particularly business travelers. Opening now also gives our operation teams opportunity to fine-tune all areas and they will be ready when the market eventually picks up."© Asia Travel Tips
