Fairmont signals entry into Japan with plans for urban retreat in Tokyo

24 May 2022
Hospitality giant Accor and Japan-based real estate company Nomura Real Estate Development have unveiled plans to open a Fairmont property in Tokyo in 2025.

Opening in the heart of the capital city, Fairmont Tokyo will mark the luxury brand’s first hotel and is being designed as an urban sanctuary in the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities. The hotel's 219 guestrooms – with sweeping views of Tokyo Bay – will be complemented with a suite of wellness amenities comprised of a luxury spa, fitness centre and swimming pool.

Fairmont Tokyo will also offer a range of suites, three restaurants and bars, meeting rooms, banquet facilities and a chapel.

“We’re excited to welcome Fairmont Tokyo into our portfolio of grand hotels, providing a stunning backdrop where glamour meets culture, and where guests and locals will come together to make memories,” said Garth Simmons, CEO, Accor Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.

“Like all our properties worldwide, the hotel is set to become the epicentre of Tokyo’s social scene and will bring a new level of personalised service and thoughtful luxury to the city.”

Once complete, Fairmont Tokyo will crown the upper floors of the South Tower of the Shibaura Project. The property is being created under the National Strategic Special Zone Program – an initiative designed to revitalise the country’s economy.

Fairmont operates more than 80 locations around the globe and the opening of Fairmont Tokyo will see the brand’s Asia-Pacific footprint grow to include 12 properties.
