Hyatt Regency Hakone
Hakone is not a place to be taking half-measures on accommodation. The transport and restaurants in Hakone finish by 7pm, so comfort and good cuisine at your hotel is a must. Located up the hill from the Hakone Open-Air Museum, this Hyatt Regency exceeds expectations in both respects.
The light and airy lobby welcomes you in straight away and the well-appointed rooms and suites make for relaxing havens to return to after a day outdoors, thanks to their spacious feel and luxurious furnishings. Clean-cut lines and contemporary dark wood trimmings feature within the design of the rooms, and in terms of amenities they even come with their very own private indoor balconies which look out over panoramic views of Hakone’s valleys. While most come with modern twists in their interiors, you may prefer to stay within a more traditional room that comes with a tatami-mat area and has more of a ‘ryokan' feel to it.
The open kitchen French restaurant is designed by acclaimed interior designers 'Super Potato', with excellent cuisine to match. For fine dining, reserve a table at the more exclusive 'Berce', or a seat at the hotel's traditional sushi restaurant - we love both. The spacious and airy lounge is home to a log fireplace so offers the warmth of a well-kept living room, which makes it the perfect spot to rest after a day spent exploring the scenic hills of Hakone with a glass in hand. Make sure not to miss out on one of the biggest perks here; the daily 'happy hour' from 4pm to 7pm, during which you can enjoy complimentary drinks, including champagne. We can't think of much better than sipping on a glass of bubbles after a calming soak in the property's 'onsen' hot spring: a real treat. This location is revered for its hot springs so we highly recommend taking advantage of this while staying in the area, and being able to do so within the comfort of your hotel is pretty special.
This forested location away from the Hakone circuit is a sanctuary where you can enjoy rural peace and quiet along with the Hyatt Regency’s exemplary service. The hotel sits in a particularly convenient spot, just a 5 minute drive away from the acclaimed art galleries nearby.
