AGORA Fukuoka Hilltop Hotel & Spa marked its grand opening on September 1 and is now welcoming guests.
Perched on a hilltop in downtown Fukuoka and 30 minutes from Fukuoka Airport, the 48-key hotel offers a panoramic view of the city, a post-modernist design and Japanese-style tatami mat rooms.
The property boasts natural hot spring baths on the third floor, a fitness room, a library and the Hilltop Spa, run by world-class spa manager Kazuko Sendo who has worked for overseas companies such as Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
Within hotel grounds are also the Hilltop Suite where guests can receive spa treatments on an open-air sun deck; the multi-purpose The Marcus Square Fukuoka including a bar, two wedding chapels, and event spaces able to accommodate between 90 and 250 guests; and F&B options Garden Restaurant K and Koyomi, which serves Japanese cuisine.
Agora Fukuoka Hilltop Hotel & Spa is the eighth facility in the Agora Hotel Alliance and fourth Agora brand hotel. Other Agora brand hotels are Agora Regency Sakai and Hotel Agora Osaka Moriguchi, both in Osaka, and Agora Place Asakusa in Tokyo.
