Japan – Shrines and Temples of Nikko

The Ritz-Carlton will open a resort in a UNESCO World Heritage site in Nikko, Japan, a region that for centuries was a center of Shinto and Buddhist worship.

Slated to open in 2020, the property is aimed at addressing a growing desire for luxury resort experiences in stunning global locations, the company said in a statement.

The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko, will be surrounded by mountainous landscapes and sacred forests. The area is also home to Nikko National Park, lakes, waterfalls, hot springs, wild monkeys and hiking trails.

“Today’s luxury traveler is increasingly seeking out unique experiences and the opportunity to become immersed in a destination’s culture. We are delighted to meet this need by opening exceptional properties in exciting new locations such as Nikko,” Lisa Holladay, global brand leader for The Ritz-Carlton, said in a statement. “We will be working to curate a Nikko experience that truly showcases what is special about this destination while bringing to life and honoring its UNESCO heritage.”
