HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO
Spotl1ght drove the global PR launch of HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO from 2019 to 2022. The hotel was developed by a quartet of prominent specialists to embrace and celebrate Japanese culture, arts, and craftsmanship: André Fu for guestrooms and lobby interiors, Shunsaku Miyagi for landscape design, and Yohei Akao for the SPA and restaurants. The entire team was led by Akira Kuryu, Master Design Advisor, recognised for his pursuit of architectural designs that blended with the surrounding environment.
Traditional Japanese culture and the heritage of the Mitsui family are combined with modern design to create a space where tradition and innovation meet. The property features a total of 161 guestrooms (22 of which were suites). Each room is a contemporary reimagining of the traditional Japanese tea room.
The THERMAL SPRING SPA (fed from a natural onsen hot spring found 1,000m below the hotel) commands over 1,000 sq.m of space and includes an onsen thermal spring, two Private Onsen facilities, and four SPA treatment rooms.
