Marriott has signed an agreement with one of Japans most acclaimed property developers, Sekisui House, to open a new Ritz-Carlton hotel in Fukuoka.
The hotel will be developed and owned by Daimyo Project TMK, a consortium of five companies including Sekisui House, the project manager for the hotel.
The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka, which will be the brands seventh hotel in Japan, is slated to open in Spring 2023.
The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will be part of a new, 24-story tower that will include high-end retail and office space. The tower is set to rise within “Tenjin Big Bang”, a redevelopment project led by Fukuoka City aimed at creating an attractive urban lifestyle destination within the citys core commercial and business districts.
The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will be located a 15-minute walk from Hakata Station, where the Shinkansen bullet train conveniently links the city with Tokyo and Osaka. Fukuoka International Airport is only six kilometers from downtown Fukuoka, with direct connections to Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and many other cities.
“We are thrilled to announce the signing of The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka, with Sekisui House, a longtime developer of Marriott International hotels,” said Craig S. Smith, President and Managing Director of Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “The signing of this property underscores continued demand for The Ritz-Carlton brand 20 years after it first entered Japan and Fukuoka, with its rising inbound tourism, is an especially ideal location.”
The lobby of The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will be located on the first floor of the building, with front-of-house facilities, 162 guest rooms and suites occupying the 18th to 24th floors.
The hotel will feature six food and beverage outlets, including all-day dining, specialty restaurants, a boutique patisserie as well as a Bar & Lounge.
