Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo recently announced the completion of its comprehensive guestroom renovations.

Aimed at enhancing the hotel’s luxury amenities and giving guests a “sense of place,” the renovation of the Mandarin Oriental’s 179 guestrooms and suites draws inspiration from Japanese culture blending Japanese craftsmanship with the latest technology. Building upon the existing Woods and Water interior design theme, guests will find that fabrics and furnishings representing the woodlands and the changing seasons have been incorporated throughout, with the autumn colors of gold, orange and purple, plus springtime wisteria and sakura patterns embroidered onto headboards. All accommodations have also been equipped with the latest Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), which allows for content to be viewed on both Apple and Android devices on 49-77 inch screens.

“We are delighted with the completion of this significant rooms renovation, which reflects the beauty of Japanese design aesthetics and superb craftsmanship,” said Paul Jones, general manager of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo, in press materials. “We look forward to welcoming guests to this luxurious new experience.”

Other design highlights can be found in the Presidential Suite, with inspirations drawn from gardens and bonsai. The Presidential Suite features commissioned photographic artwork depicting treescapes from Tokyo’s parks, an abundance of natural light, and offers views of Mount Fuji from any part of the suite. In addition, the dining room’s ceiling light resembles the sun and its cabinets are decorated with motifs of birds, butterflies and plants; and the bedroom ceiling is created to give the illusion of looking at the sky through trees, while its carpet design evokes the world of Origami.

For an immersive cultural experience, guests can book Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s Nihonbashi Package, which includes accommodations, breakfast for two, and the choice of a cultural experience in the historic Nihonbashi district.
