MILLENNIUM & Copthorne Hotels (M&C) has partnered Mitsui Fudosan to launch its first flagship hotel in Japan that is scheduled to open tomorrow.
Located in the heart of Tokyo’s Ginza 4-chome district directly opposite Misukoshi department store, the 329-key Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel sports a striking Bottega-inspired façade mimicking the weave of a basket.
Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel will cater to guests looking for luxury, featuring two special concept rooms designed by distinguished Japanese brands Mikimoto Cosmetics Ginza and Hakuza Nihonbashi, which specialises in the production of gold foil.
The Pearl Room by Mikimoto Cosmetics is bedecked with lighting and items themed on pearls. Guests can try Mikimoto Cosmetics products that contain the pearl protein conchiolin, and bathe with the special bath salts made with pearl essence that is kind on the skin. A 20 per cent discount on list prices for aesthetic treatments and cosmetics from Mikimoto Cosmetics will be available for staying guests.
Hakuza is name of the the traditional technique for producing gold leaves that are the central motif of the Hakuza Gold Leaf Room. Hakuza Nihonbashi is offering its gold leaf mask and luxury bath salt with gold leaf for hotel guests to try. Besides that, guests can receive one set of Hakuza cosmetics to use and also a complimentary tea ceremony experience.
In addition the hotel offers a restaurant in the basement called All Day Dining Niko Ginza.
At a press conference held yesterday to mark the hotel’s opening, Wong Hong Ren, CEO of M&C, said the hotel was acquired at a good time as hotel property values have gone up since the purchase.
Mitsui Fudosan Group and Hong Leong Group have been pursuing collaborative residential projects and hotel operations through joint venture company TID for over 40 years.
While both companies have been long-time partners, Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel will mark both groups’ first-ever joint business project in Japan.
