September 1, 2023 A luxury hotel from Thailand [Dusit Thani Kyoto] landed around Kyoto Station

September 01, 2023 open

Bangkok-based luxury hotel brand [Dusit Thani] has landed in Kyoto, Japan for the first time. Located between Higashi Honganji Temple and Nishi Honganji Temple, which is easily accessible from Kyoto Station, you can enjoy elegant hospitality that fuses Japanese and Thai culture in a calm environment. From the sophisticated lobby lounge, the courtyard where you can feel the four seasons, to the comfortable guest rooms, you can feel that hospitality in every corner of the hotel.

In addition to comfortable accommodation, the dining room is also unique, including Ayatana, where you can enjoy traditional Thai cuisine. I want to enjoy the fresh taste full of originality.

1.Enjoy Dusit Thani Kyoto's original traditional Thai cuisine [Ayatana]

A Thai restaurant that serves as the hotel's signature restaurant. The menu will be supervised by Mr. Duangporn Sonvisava and Mr. Dylan Jones, former chefs of the Thai restaurant [Bo.lan] in Bangkok, which has been awarded one star in the Michelin Guide Bangkok for several years. The two people who evolve Thai cuisine with new interpretations are working on an original menu that includes elements of Kyoto cuisine in traditional Thai cuisine. Enjoy a unique dining experience in an elegant space inspired by Kintsugi.
