Four Seasons Hotel, Kyoto

Superluxe - £££££


Explore Kyoto’s fascinating temple district with a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel, a pristine garden paradise.

The Four Seasons Kyoto really is something special. The hotel boasts impeccable contemporary décor, offering every modern luxury you could ask for. There’s a sushi bar, tea house, blissfully indulgent spa and swimming pool – all perfect for treating yourself during your time in the city.

But it’s all centred around an 800-year-old Shakusui-en pond garden, a serene ancient sanctuary. Greenery is a key feature of this stunning hotel, and you simply need to lie back in your supremely comfortable bed to appreciate it. From the huge windows in each guest room, you’ll enjoy views of sun-dappled cherry blossoms in spring and the vibrant colours of the foliage in autumn.

Despite the sense of nestling in a forest retreat, the Four Seasons Hotel is actually just a short stroll to some of the best attractions of Kyoto city centre. This includes the Toyokuni Shrine, Chishaku-in Temple and Kyoto National Museum.


You’ll feel like a true VIP in your luxurious room at the Four Seasons Kyoto. These plush, spacious suites have rain showers, in-mirror TVs, iPads, complimentary toiletries and free Wi-Fi. And of course, each room comes with an extraordinary garden view.

The hotel has a long list of facilities, including indoor swimming pool, 24-hour fitness centre, sauna, whirlpools and no fewer than 7 spa treatment rooms. You can enjoy gourmet treats made from fresh local ingredients at The Brasserie, and pastries and coffees in The Lounge.

There’s a bar, beauty shop, chapel, child-friendly facilities and a 24-hour reception desk, where you can access concierge services and book bike tours of the city.
