Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo
Your first impression upon arriving at award-winning Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo is a pleasant sensation which is retained throughout your stay. Having sped up 38 floors, you step into a stunningly chic, glass-enclosed lobby where all of Tokyo seems spread out before you and all things seem possible. Indeed, inspiring views of the metropolis, including Tokyo SkyTree® to the East and Mount Fuji to the West, emerge time and again all throughout the hotel, whether from its 179 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites, spectacular restaurants and bars or extravagantly sumptuous spa.

Far below at street level, the prestigious Nihonbashi address—Tokyo’s cultural and commercial heart since the 1600s—reveals a place where centuries-old shops specialising in superior Japanese handicrafts tempt with everything from washi papers to the finest kimono. Some of the nearby historic edifices are now home to major financial firms, while the haute couture of world-renowned Ginza is only blocks away.

The hotel’s eclectic range of restaurants includes the eight-seat The Pizza Bar on 38th, Sushi SORA and Tapas Molecular Bar and three out of 12 outlets with one Michelin Star. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo is a true sanctuary of ultimate indulgence. “The Spa in the Sky” includes water lounge, jet-bath vitality pool, amethyst crystal steam room and dry sauna, all of which are fully therapeutic by themselves. When combined with personalised treatments featuring soothing Asian and Japanese rituals, however, the experience is one of total mind, body and spirit rejuvenation.

Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s numerous accolades and awards include the most recent achievement as the only hotel in Japan to be rated Five Stars by the Forbes Travel Guide in both hotel and spa categories for three consecutive years and the Five Red Pavilions from the Michelin Guide.
