The Park Hyatt Brand Celebrates Debut of Park Hyatt Kyoto
Park Hyatt Residences are art-filled meeting and event spaces ideal for intimate gatherings. Enjoy all of the qualities and comforts of a luxurious residence: tailored service, unique culinary offerings and exceptional spaces–like show kitchens, wine cellars and outdoor courtyards.
Hyatt Hotels announced today the opening of Park Hyatt. Set in the heart of this noble city with centuries of history and heritage, Park Hyatt unfolds a journey of discovery with enriching, sophisticated and rare experiences.
Park Hyatt is located in one of the city’s best-preserved historic districts, Higashiyama hills. The region, known as the birthplace of traditions such as the Japanese tea ceremony, the Ikebana flower arrangement and Japanese Zen gardens, will offer a rich foundation for the hotel.
Park Hyatt embodies the quintessential Japanese guesthouse, offering a serene Higashiyama hillside retreat for discerning global travellers and local residents. The hotel is next to Kodai-ji temple and within walking distance to many of Kyoto’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Kiyomizu-dera temple, and offers sweeping views of the city and Yasaka Pagoda.
Park Hyatt is located less than one mile from the Kyoto train station, which connects travellers to Tokyo in just over two hours via the Nozomi Shinkansen bullet train.
Located within the same grounds as Park Hyatt, guests can find a historic garden with steps leading to Kyoyamato, a traditional ryotei and culinary institution which opened in 1877 and serves authentic, seasonally inspired Kaiseki cuisine.
Kyoyamato, one of the hotel’s owners, is a seven-generation, family-run business and consists of several historic buildings including “Soyotei,” a teahouse from the Edo era with a private room where feudal warlords once secretly met. Its storied gardens and traditional houses complement the hotel’s modern interpretation of classical Japanese architecture and intimate hospitality.
