Rates from S$1700

Granted many spots in Japan are ancient but only some can receive new lease of life. Conceptualised and raised around the 800 year-old Shakusui-en, Four Seasons Kyoto is a resplendent emblem richly imbued with ancient beauty and contemporary sensibilities. The intertwined accents - washio panels, rustling bamboos, glass sculptures et al, come alive amidst bold and striking hues in the open, whilst the elegant rooms and suites are bathed in elegant and comely forms, balanced in an aesthetic zen that is far from severe.

One of the earliest international brand to have a presence in Kyoto, Hyatt Regency Kyoto has been meticulously maintained to retain its many charms. Quintessentially a Japanese beauty set within a walled compound, visitors are wont to remember the serenity of its rock garden and the elegance of its rooms radiating with cultural resplendency. The conception of this property may be inherently small, but for years now it has been setting the gold standard on Japanese hospitality and will very likely continue its heritage with gumption and form.

Within the famous precincts of Kyoto's Arashiyama are many heritage buildings, and one of the most alluring is now the Suiran, a wonderful hotel carved from an erstwhile royal abode. The magic of a Japanese inn comes from the presence of hot springs and the best rooms at Suiran are set with private onsens. Melded with modern and cultural aesthetics, a stay here is an immersive experience to say the least.
