The world is full of luxurious properties that distil the best of a destination into their very substance and style. Nowhere is this better practiced than the continent of Asia, where ancient cultures find their contemporary expression in elite hotels and resorts which pay homage to their past while constantly striving toward their vision of the future.
Of course, the word “Asia” denotes a vast collection of countries and cultures, many of which bear the least resemblance to one another. Our team at The Luxury Travel Agency has years of personal experience living and travelling in Asia – you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more knowledgeable team for your travels to the East. Below, some of one favorite luxury properties to explore!
Any visitor to Japan would be remiss to depart without a stop in Kyoto, the ancient once-capital that still thrives as the cultural heart of the nation. Kyoto was largely spared from the destruction wrought by WWII, and thus preserved much of the stunning architectural heritage that makes it such a popular destination today.
There is no shortage of gorgeous luxury properties to stay at, but it’s difficult to rival The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto for overall quality. Built low along the banks of the Kamo River, this hotel has thousands of years of distinct Japanese heritage to draw on, and it does a remarkable job of conveying this in a modern fashion. Rooms and suites are designed with crisp lines reminiscent of typical Japanese architecture and decorated in soft natural shades that soothe one’s mind immediately upon entry. The Luxury Travel Agency strongly recommends booking a room with a river view; the floor-to-ceiling windows display wonderful views of the Kamo River and a backdrop of green mountains to the east.
Diners are spoilt for choice; The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto offers the unique opportunity to enjoy selections from four major Japanese cuisine styles (kaiseki, sushi, teppanyaki, & tempura) in the same restaurant, while also housing one of the best Italian spots in the city. With all this said, the most outstanding quality of the hotel may be its staff. Anticipatory without being pushy, knowledgeable without being robotic, the staff are always cognizant of Japanese excellence in service – a tradition they honor at every turn.
