When it is time to look for the next getaway, LuxeGetaways has three ideas to consider. The Palace Hotel Tokyo, The Chatwal Hotel and The Landings Resort and Spa have ventured “outside of the box” to create unique packages to entice travelers this next season.

Palace Hotel Tokyo


Opened in May 2012, Palace Hotel Tokyo commands some of the city’s most exclusive real estate. As heir to a legacy going back more than half a century as one of the city’s most iconic properties, the hotel remains committed to offering Japanese hospitality at its finest. As the anchor to a USD 1.2 billion mixed-use development built entirely from the ground-up, the contemporary 290-room hotel features 10 distinctive restaurants & bars – including elegant French fine dining, exquisite Japanese and an Old World-style cigar & martini bar – an Evian SPA and incomparable views of the city’s much-loved Imperial Palace gardens. Drawing deeply from the country’s history, culture and art, the award-winning hotel redefines luxury in Japan with sophistication and authenticity, presenting guests with the most bespoke cultural experiences to be had in Tokyo. Located at 1-1-1 Marunouchi, the hotel is a 10-minute walk from the landmark Tokyo Station and mere steps away from Marunouchi Naka Dori, a picturesque, tree-lined boulevard that serves as one of Tokyo’s most posh shopping and dining destinations.

Package: Discerning Tokyo

Through 31 August, The Palace Hotel Tokyo invite you to revel in the finer things in life with Discerning Tokyo, a stay experience designed to serve up some of the best that Palace Hotel Tokyo has to offer both in and outside of the hotel. Ideal for weekend getaways (though bookable for weekday breaks as well), the package leaves much of your travel planning to us so you’re left to simply enjoy a much-needed change of scenery and just the right dose of culture, food and drink.
