Slip off your shoes and enter a world that is distinctly Japanese. Hospitality of honour. The hushed intimacy of rooms behind sliding shoji paper screens. Zen design. Tatami flooring. A deep soaking bath overlooking your private courtyard garden. Omakase dining prepared with love by our Japanese team and served to your room. Futon bedding laid out at night and a traditional Japanese cooked breakfast in the morning. The Japanese spa, meditation and private yoga guidance remove tension and show the way to places of fragile beauty and luxurious peace. A tranquil environment in which to relax and re-energise.
