Your next staycation or getaway in bustling central Tokyo could be at the cozy yet luxurious sanctuary that is Fraser Suites Akasaka. Offering a slice of tranquility in the Japanese capital’s Central Business District, the newly opened serviced residence offers 224 apartments ranging from deluxe rooms and studios to one-bedroom apartments. Fully furnished, these apartments offer amenities like kitchenettes, rain showers, bathtubs, and state-of-the-art home entertainment systems.
Decked out with quality furnishings and generously sized bay windows, each abode offers unobstructed views of the city skyline, as well as landmarks like the Tokyo Skytree and Mount Fuji. The rooms, which range up to 60 square meters, are considerably larger than the average accomodation in the city.
When envisioning the property, renowned interior design firm Hirsch-Bedner Associates took inspiration from the area’s rich heritage. As such, they’ve incorporated a traditional kumiko woodworking art piece in the lobby and used prints and colours inspired by Asakasa (which means “red slope”)’s hilltop location.
Designed for both work and play, the property comes with a gym that’s open round-the-clock, a golf simulator, as well as The Retreat—a relaxing workspace complete with massage chairs. There’s also an in-house dining establishment that serves both Japanese cuisine and seasonable Italian fare, against the calming backdrop of a lush garden.
Beyond a prime commercial and residential district, Akasaka also offers endless cultural, shopping, and dining attractions in its vicinity. Must-visits include the Tokyo Bay Zone and the old Olympic venues dating from 1964 within the Heritage Zone. Shopping wise, there’s the fashion-forward neighbourhoods of Shibuya, Ginza, and Roppongi, all within reach of a quick metro ride.
In light of the ongoing pandemic, Ms Huang Meilin, general manager of Fraser Suites Akasaka, said: “Fraser Suites Akasaka has adopted heightened measures, including the availability of hand sanitiser in common public areas, access to masks for all guests, as well as increased cleaning and disinfection of high contact points within apartments.”
Currently, the property is offering a special opening discount of up to 40 percent off best flexible rate, inclusive of late check-out and an exclusive welcome hamper, for stays up to and including September 30, 2020.
