Oasis in downtown Kyoto

November 18, 2021 - As sensuous as it is enticing, Kyoto will mark our first entry into Japan. With its meandering paths through tranquil gardens and feel-good spa, Six Senses Kyoto is within walking distance of the colorful Gion district. Bring the kids too!

  • News2 Kyoto

The heart of Japan, Kyoto, is famed for its Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, palaces, traditional Japanese architecture, and beautiful cherry gardens. And right in “the heart of the heart” is Six Senses Kyoto, sited in front of the Myoho-in temple and Tokyokuni-Jinja shrine and within walking distance of the colorful Gion district.

Biophilic design

There will be a total of 81 guest rooms organized around a central courtyard providing a garden of seasonal landscapes. The interior design contrasts simple lines with earthy organic tones and a “beauty in the details” vibe, setting a calming and welcoming mood and celebrating authentic Japanese traditions and décor.

Make time for Zen

The spa and wellness facilities blend traditional healing and Japanese Zen culture into our signature Six Senses wellness experience. Enjoy a Ryokan-style welcome and traditional tea ceremony before blending up your own beauty scrubs at the Alchemy Bar. The spa lounge will incorporate a concept store offering vibrant and fun fashion and homeware collections, so leave room in your luggage.

The fun continues inside and out

The hotel journey is designed to mirror the different energies of the city life, from the sensory stimulation and movement of the street to the stillness and calm of a Zen garden. Meander freely from these outside spaces into the indoor dining areas, which include an All-Day Dining Restaurant, Specialty Sushi Restaurant, Brew Bar, and Cocktail Lounge Bar. Added delights will include meeting rooms with a fireplace, and an Earth Lab. Boredom being the nemesis of any family holiday, in Kyoto that is never on the agenda thanks to its fairy-tale charm and child-friendly attractions. Six Senses Kyoto will also offer a host of Grow With Six Senses arts, crafts, ecological and wellness activities to attune children to Japanese customs in a playful, immersive way. Just go steady with the Samurai sword.

When to go?

While Kyoto is popular all year round, the spring Sakura (cherry blossoms) and fall foliage are the most iconic. Given its central location, Six Senses Kyoto will appeal to guests seeking culture, history, shopping and gastronomy, and it is set to open in 2024.

This month, we’re announcing not one but two new openings… find out what we’re up to at Six Senses Lisbon, Portugal.
