By 2020, Ritz-Carlton looks set to unveil its first ever resort to be situated amid a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

And it’s none other than in Japan’s Nikko, an area located in the northern Kanto region of the country.

Teeming with natural wonders, from mountains to sacred forests, waterfalls, as well as famed Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, the Nikko region was awarded UNESCO status thanks to its cultural, religious, and architectural significance.

Already with existing operations in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Okinawa, the luxury hotel and resort brand plans to grow its presence in the Land of the Rising Sun when it welcomes its fifth property in Niseko and its sixth in Nikko.

The upcoming Nikko resort is likely to be located along the East end of Lake Chuzenji and South of Mount Nantai, allowing guests to enjoy easy access the Nikko’s National Park and more.

A total of 94 guestrooms and suites will be up for booking, each with scenic views of either Lake Chuzenji or Mount Nantai. Guests can also expect to enjoy an open-air hot spring bath and spa, an all-day dining restaurant, as well as a Western restaurant.
