The arts, gastronomy, culture and natural wonders of Japan are coming together in a new US$50,000 experience offered by Palace Hotel Tokyo beginning this January.
The package, Quintessentially Tokyo, combines a collection of previously introduced Palatial Pursuits in an opportunity to capture the essence of Japan over a five-night, six-day stay.
Highlights of the experience include:
- Full-day bespoke art excursion led by a local expert from the Tokyo bureau of Blouin ARTINFO, the world’s leading art and culture curators.
- One-on-one foodie tour with a culinary aficionado. Tour options range from sipping sake with the country’s foremost non-Japanese expert on Japan’s favourite fermented brew, to navigating Tsukiji Fish Market with a local chef, sommelier and book author.
- Individually tailored four-hour private session with a cultural expert to explain and help navigate Japan’s deeply rooted, and sometimes complex, customs and traditions.
- A single, luminous akoya pearl, made famous by Marilyn Monroe and cultivated in Japan for more than a century, to take home as a memento.
Quintessential guests will sit down to exquisitely crafted seasonal Japanese cuisine with a kaiseki lunch or dinner for two at Wadakura, and unwind from their explorations with two 80-minute Vitalizing Signature treatments at Japan’s only evian SPA. As with all the elements of the package, the spa’s signature treatment is a cultural experience, with Japanese seitai acupressure-style trigger points being combined with European-style massage techniques for maximum tension relief and relaxation.
The jewel in this Quintessential crown is accommodation in the hotel’s top abode, Palace Suite, a sprawling 210-square-metre contemporary space with an art collection of its own. The suite is rivaled only by the incomparable views beyond, including that of the city’s skyline, Wadakura Fountain Park and Imperial Palace Plaza.
As an added perk, round-trip airport transfers, daily chauffeured private car service and full Club Lounge access and privileges are also included.
Package rate starts at approximately US$50,000. Quintessentially Tokyo is available from Jan. 5, 2015.
