relax, refresh and ride with revitalizing tokyo

New autumn package promotes pampering and healthy pursuits.

TOKYO (August 9, 2016) — With international acclaim rising for Palace Hotel Tokyo, the hotel is rolling out a new stay experience that indulges the need for personal time.

The two-night Revitalizing Tokyo package combines spa treatments with a choice of a guided cycling or walking tour and other amenities as the second installment in a series of experiences leading up to the hotel’s fifth anniversary. Enthusiasm for the hotel has never been greater.

In July, the hotel won a spot on Travel+Leisure USA’s annual ‘World’s Best’ list, and earlier this year became the first Japanese-branded hotel to secure a coveted Five-Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide. The new stay package will highlight elements of the property that have burnished its global reputation.

From indulgent facials to leisurely afternoon teas, Revitalizing Tokyo helps guests unwind with:

  • 135 minutes of pampering with the CARITA anti-aging Three Gold Premium Full Treatment at evian SPA.
  • A choice of an afternoon tea at The Palace Lounge or a half-day (three-hour) privately guided recreational experience – including choice of a guided cycling or walking tour.
  • Two nights of accommodation in a Club category room or Executive Suite, including exclusive access to the hotel’s 19th floor Club Lounge, with private outdoor terrace.
  • A choice of an early check-in (12:00 pm onwards)
    or late check-out (until 3:00 pm)
  • An option to do In-Room Dining breakfast one morning
    (for those who love to sleep-in)

With frontage on a moat bordering Japan’s Imperial Palace Gardens, the hotel enjoys one of the city’s most naturally compelling locations. Fitness buffs can explore the popular 5-kilometer jogging loop that rims the royal grounds, either on their own or as part of the privately guided walking or cycling tour.

Many of the capital’s tourist destinations are easily accessible from the hotel on foot or by bicycle, including neighboring Nihonbashi, home to the Nihonbashi Bridge which has been the zero kilometer marker for Japan since the Edo era, Ginza, which has long been the city’s most refined shopping and dining hub, and Ningyocho, with its more shitamachi (Japanese old town) feel dating back four centuries.

There’s also the option to do the three-hour, privately guided experience by private car – an excellent alternative for more far-reaching wandering (an additional charge of JPY 27,600 would apply).

After a day of touring, full body relaxation awaits at the Alpine-inspired evian SPA. The new Three Gold Premium Full Treatment incorporates products by high-end Parisian brand CARITA, which debuted at the spa earlier this year. The facial deploys products with 24k gold to help restore elasticity to the face, while a soothing massage uses vitamin oil to leave the skin supple and glowing.

Each new offering in the hotel’s fifth anniversary series takes inspiration from one of the brand’s five core values, all of which are reflective of the guest experience Palace Hotel Tokyo aims to deliver. Revitalizing Tokyo celebrates the second of these core attributes, “Ultimate Personal Time”, which reflects the hotel’s desire for travelers to not only be able to luxuriate in exceptional comfort and unwind by stepping out of the rush of everyday life, but to also savor the beauty in every experience encountered.

Amongst the other gems represented by the five dots in the hotel’s crown logo are “Harmony with Nature” and “Hospitality from the Heart”, with the rest – as well as the packages each inspire – to be revealed over the next year.

For every Revitalizing Tokyo package that’s booked for a stay in October, Palace Hotel Tokyo will donate 10% of the proceeds to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Rates start at JPY 240,000 for Club Deluxe rooms, JPY 256,000 for Club Grand Deluxe rooms and JPY 368,000 for Executive Suites, not inclusive of taxes and service charge.*

The package is available to book now, for stays from 1 September – 30 November 2016.
