Ritz-Carlton unveils mountainside spa in Japan with traditional onsen and daily meditation ritual

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has recently opened a new luxury resort and spa in Japan, expanding its luxury Asia Pacific portfolio into the historic mountain region of Nikko.

The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko, showcases a new spa designed to be an urban sanctuary of wellness inspired by the abundance of natural revitalising elements and the rich heritage of the Nikko region, within four specialised treatment rooms.

The resort offers Ritz-Carlton's first branded onsen which draws natural hot spring water direct from Nikko Yumoto Onsen, a renowned hot spring discovered more than 1200 years ago. The facility includes an indoor bath, open-air bath, sauna and relaxation space.

The spa offers treatments supplied by Espa and Japanese skincare brand Mikimoto, the sister company to the famous cultured pearl business – however, due to COVID-19 the spa is running a reduced menu.

Located in the Northern Kanto region of Japan, the 94-key resort is set two and a half hours north of Tokyo, neighbouring natural treasures including the Kegon Falls and famous Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.

Nikko, and the surrounding area, has long been known as a holy place and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural, religious, and architectural significance.

Further enhancing the hotel’s meditative and spiritual setting, guests are invited to participate in a nightly meditation ritual.

Every day at dusk, the lobby area will be transformed into a place of spiritual respite, offering a moment to reset and appreciate the day that has passed. Upon departure, guests will receive a sacred omamori (Japanese amulet), their own keepsake memento and a wish for safe travel.

“Following much anticipation, we’re thrilled to finally open the doors to The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko, and to continue the growth of the luxury segment in Japan,” said Rajeev Menon, president Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “This opening marks an extremely monumental point for our brand and the entire company.”
