Built on a site favoured by Japanese nobility since the 17th century, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto continues a legacy of quiet luxury, overlooking the Kamogawa River with views that extend to the Higashiyama Sanju-Roppo - the famous 36 mountain range. Drink in picturesque views of the Kamo River relax with a spa ritual inspired by Japan’s wellness traditions or stroll to many of Kyoto's major attractions, including the iconic Geishas of the Gion district, Teramashi's random boutiques and Kyoto Imperial Palace.

The hotel interiors have a creative design dotted with the works of more than 80 of Japan's most prominent artists. Each of the 134 rooms cover a spacious 50sqm with light and airy decors displaying a natural Japanese style; light wood, bonsai plants, washi paper artwork and serene hints of cherry blossom. Room amenities include touch screen environmental controls, roof-top rain showers and LED TVs, while some of the suites also have a private Japanese garden, created by designer Kanji Nomura and modelled on traditional tsukimidai "moon-viewing decks".

Choose from two top quality restaurants; Misuki embodies the region serving four distinct types of Japanese cuisine - sushi, kaiseki banquets, tempura and tantalising teppanyaki dishes - while Italian cuisine dominates at La Locanda. For something a little more personal, the Ebisugawa-tei private rooms offer a modern twist on a traditional tatami mat dining space, with sliding paper screens and low wooden stools.
