All-season luxury resort on the forest’s edge near Nagano, Japan
Championing its natural setting, a woodland motif runs throughout Karuizawa Prince Hotel East. Here, your bedroom feels a little like a luxury cabin – with log pile wallpaper and leaf designs running through the decor. They hint at what’s beyond the door: a forest spa and ski lift, ready to immerse you in the landscapes of central Japan. Its hard to believe that Karuizawa is only one hour by bullet train to the bright lights of Tokyo.
Whatever time of year you visit and however you spend your days, the Guest Lounge Sakura makes for a restful pit stop, complete with complimentary soft drinks. When it comes to food, Japan’s finest cuisine is on show at the Karuizawa Prince Hotel East restaurants. You can buy local delicacies to take home from the on-site shop.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
The spa is a must-visit, but Karuizawa Prince Hotel East promises something for every season. You can hire bicycles in spring and summer, or ride the mountain lift when the snow falls. If you plan to travel with little ones, they’ll be well catered for. Kids can bring parents to woodwork sessions and family stargazing tours, complete with bonfire, or turn Spiderman on the indoor climbing wall. With an excellent fitness centre at the hotel, and a golf course and shopping plaza brimming with boutiques close by, there’s plenty for grown-ups too.
Enjoy your stay!
