Ritz-Carlton opening locations in Japan, Thailand

by Jane Kitchen | 30 Nov 2015

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company will develop two hotels in Asia in partnership with YTL Hotels: The Ritz-Carlton Koh Samui in Thailand and a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Japan.

The Ritz-Carlton Reserve Niseko Village will be set at the base of Mount Niseko-Annupuri, a Japanese ski haven, and will include just 50 rooms.

Scheduled for completion in 2020, the ski-in, ski-out Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be the first in Japan, and will join other Ritz properties in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Okinawa. A spokesperson for the company said it is likely the resort will feature a spa, but added that it was too soon to disclose further details.

“Ritz-Carlton Reserves feature signature, one-of-a-kind boutique resorts positioned in unique settings, each with a distinctive personality and sense of place reflecting its history and culture,” said Herve Humler, president and chief operating officer, The Ritz-Carlton. “Niseko is a natural choice to complement our existing exclusive portfolio.”

The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui will be developed in the region of Plai Laem in the northern tip of the island, and will feature 187 guestrooms and villas with a collection of wellness and recreational facilities. Again, spa details have not been decided.

“When styling and designing a Ritz-Carlton, we are extremely conscious of the surrounding and abundant natural beauty which makes people fall in love with the destination,” said Humler. “We want guests to enjoy and discover the extraordinary diversity and beauty to be found in this part of Thailand.”
