Op­u­lent heart of tran­quil­lity

World Travel Magazine - - The Luxury 50 List 2017 -

Sure 800-year-old ikeniwa ponds at the heart of prop­er­ties and leg­ends about a 12th-cen­tury samu­rai seem ex­trav­a­gant, but this is the Four Sea­sons Ky­oto so we’re just get­ting warmed up. Spare-no-ex­pense ma­te­ri­als like hand-adzed floors and stun­ning pub­lic art pieces abound, among them an exquisitely il­lu­mi­nated sheet of washi pa­per. Amid all the ex­trav­a­gance, lies ul­ti­mate tran­quil­lity. The 245-square-me­tre Pres­i­den­tial Suite with zen-like bath­rooms boasts walk-in clos­ets, a pri­vate bal­cony with views of the 12th-cen­tury My­oho-in Tem­ple, and ipad ac­cess to ho­tel ser­vices. An enor­mous fit­ness cen­tre, beau­ti­ful un­der­ground swim­ming pool and spa com­plete the ex­trav­a­gance. Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Ky­oto, Ja­pan
