Luxury Holidays At Hoshinoya Kyoto

To top off your luxury Japan holiday, enjoy simply unmatchable service that embraces the deep-rooted Japanese art of hospitality.

Dining & Gourmet

Dining here embraces Japanese Kaiseki traditions, with exceptional banquet-style, multi-course menus flaunting the very best of the region’s seasonal produce. The Executive Chef is Kyoto-raised Ichiro Kubota, formerly of the Michelin-starred UMU restaurant in London, who promises a simply spectacular culinary experience through a combination of his international training and Japanese roots.

Spa & Wellness

Channelling its serene surroundings and local healing traditions, Hoshinoya Kyoto offers a wealth of experiences and facilities that invite you to relax, refresh and revitalise. You can join in with morning meditation in the Zen garden, take part in an incense ceremony, enjoy a Shiatsu massage from the comfort of your room, or soak in a mineral rich Japanese bath. A two-day spa programme can also be arranged for true reinvigoration.


The serenity and remoteness of Hoshinoya Kyoto lend it perfectly to romance. Get away from it all and embrace quality time together, indulging in Shiatsu massages, feasting on Kaiseki cuisine or simply wandering through the gorgeous Zen gardens, listening to the chirping of wild birds.
