The luxury hotel promises 122 light-filled rooms and suites and to set a new benchmark for standards of space, service and experience across its eight dining venues and paramount 4,000 sqm wellness centre – one of the city’s largest.
Across eight floors, the rooms and suites, designed by Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston, span up to 284 sqm (3057 sqft) in size, while the floor-to-ceiling windows are meant to bring a sense of lightness and space in contrast to the bustle of the city. The rooms are complete with private balconies and Asian-inspired interiors with contemporary European influences. “The space is a thrilling exploration of textures, colours, and design elements that awakes the senses and ignites imagination”, said Gathy.
The eight dining venues span from concepts rooted in the culinary traditions of Asia to embracing European influences, like fine pastry at Patisserie or Italian cuisine at Mercato, a lively all-day dining emporium celebrating Italian culinary culture where freshly prepared dishes are served from three open kitchens.
The wellness centre, one of the largest in the city, comprises Tokyo’s largest gym (340 sqm), a 25m swimming pool, five group movement studios, seven treatment rooms, two Spa Houses and a hydrotherapy area with a Hammam or Banya.
Janu also plans to offer a variety of signature experiences. Teppei Kojima, one of Tokyo’s youngest bonsai artists, will host interactive workshops on cultivating respect for the bonsai’s natural form. The hotel will acquire one of the world’s most advanced golf simulators, Golfzon, to offer guests the change of participating in tournaments without leaving the comfort of the premises, with award presentations hosted in the Janu Bar or Grill venues. Janu will also organise mixology masterclasses, covering bartending secrets and the culinary techniques required to create a perfect drink.
