Urban sanctuary in downtown Kyoto

Historically the capital and still thought to be the cultural and historical heart of Japan, Kyoto is famed for its Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, palaces, traditional Japanese architecture, beautiful cherry blossoms, and mountains covered in centuries-old cedar trees surrounding the city. You’ll find us in the tranquil Higashiyama district, we’re an easy walk from the Myoho-in Temple, Kyoto National Museum and Sanjusangendo Buddhist Temple – offering a serene sanctuary inspired by the flourishing art and cultural heritage from the Heian era.

Design touches inspired by the literary masterpiece Tale of Genji as well as ancient folklores are woven through the hotel, embodying the aesthetics and elegant sensibility of the notion of Miyabi back in the period. Choose your view in one of our 81 rooms and suites – either our internal courtyard, the city, or the garden of the famous 16th-century Toyokuni Shrine opposite us.

Embark on a holistic wellness journey at Six Senses Spa, where smart technology meets traditional healing methods and the essence of Zen culture; or enjoy ultra-seasonal dining experiences at Sekki, our all-day dining rooted in the local and sustainable Eat With Six Senses ethos. Savor aromatic brews and sweet treats at Cafe Sekki or unwind with crafted concoctions at Nine Tails bar.
