The grand opening of the Six Senses Kyoto has offered up a veritable oasis of tranquillity nestled amidst the iconic shrines and palaces of this historic city.

The lobby has a stunning folding screen adorned with hand-crafted Rakuyaki tiles, was a masterful blend of modern elegance and timeless Heian-era artistry.


Sanctuary of serenity and rejuvenation

The guest rooms and suites were nothing short of a revelation. From the Premier Suite Garden, with its private Japanese courtyard, to the decadent Three Bedroom Penthouse Suite, each space exuded a sense of sanctuary and calm.

The Sleep With Six Senses program, with its bespoke organic bedding and sleep-enhancing amenities, promised to lull even the most restless of souls into a blissful slumber.


Wellness, Kyoto-style

But the true pièce de résistance was the Six Senses Spa, where ancient healing traditions and modern science converged in a symphony of wellness.

The Kyoto-exclusive Ah-un treatment, with its rituals and harmonising therapies, was a revelation, while the Watsu pool offered a unique hydrotherapeutic experience.

And for those seeking cutting-edge recovery solutions, the Biohack Recovery Lounge was a veritable playground of state-of-the-art gadgets.


Culinary delights and sustainable ethos

As for the dining options, the culinary team at Sekki had truly outdone themselves. Guided by the Eat With Six Senses philosophy, the menus celebrated the 24 solar terms of the ancient Japanese calendar, showcasing the finest seasonal produce and artisanal ingredients.

And the adjacent Café Sekki and Nine Tails bar? Pure perfection, darling. But the real star of the show was the hotel’s unwavering commitment to sustainability. From the eco-centric design to the interactive workshops at the Earth Lab, it was clear that the Six Senses Kyoto was not just a luxurious retreat, but a beacon of environmental consciousness.

So, for those in the mood for a truly transformative experience that blends the timeless elegance of Kyoto with the cutting-edge comforts of modern luxury, the Six Senses Kyoto was the place to be.

With its irresistible charm and uncompromising dedication to wellness and sustainability, this new addition to the Six Senses family was sure to captivate the hearts and minds of all who stepped through its doors.
