Six Senses Opens First Hotel in Japan

3rd May 2024

The Kyoto property is designed to be reminiscent of an ancient temple.


Six Senses made its debut into Japan recently, opening the doors to its urban sanctuary in the city of Kyoto, renowned for its temples, shrines and stunning cedar forests.



Situated in the Higashiyama district, Six Senses Kyoto places guests within easy walking distance of sites such as Myoho-in Temple, Kyoto National Museum and Sanjusangen-do Buddhist Temple. Read on to be the first to hear about this one-of-a-kind property.




The hotel's interior design pays homage to Japanese aesthetics, with clean lines, earthy colours, and quirky touches inspired by ancient folklore. Time-honoured materials such as traditional Japanese plasterwork, ceramic tile, and woodwork joinery create an ambience of calm, enhanced by biophilic elements like hanging plants.




Blending traditional healing with Japanese Zen culture, the spa promises unique wellness experiences rooted in Kyoto's rich cultural heritage. Guests can expect traditional male and female baths, an indoor pool, gym and Biohack Recovery Lounge as well as a sensory suite. Additional wellness options feature a Japanese tea lounge, aerial yoga and meditation sessions, along with an Alchemy Bar where you can concoct your own beauty scrubs prior to your treatment.



On the Menu

Multi-sensory culinary experiences await at the relaxed all-day dining restaurant and counter-style sushi restaurant, including a ‘Brew Bar’ down the hotel’s garden path, which will feature a range of locally sourced whiskey, gin, Shochu, sake, and Japanese draught beer.
