TOKYO, Japan and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of Hilton Nagasaki, which marks Hilton’s first hotel in Nagasaki and second property in the Kyushu region. Directly connected to the new Dejima Messe Nagasaki convention center, the hotel will provide world-class hospitality, accommodation and facilities to leisure and business travelers alike.
Conveniently located to the west of the Nagasaki Station, Hilton Nagasaki’s central location offers easy access to Nagasaki’s most popular sights and landmarks such as Mount Inasa, as well as UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the Glover Garden and Oura Cathedral.
“The opening of Hilton Nagasaki is especially significant as it marks our 500th hotel in Asia Pacific. Reaching such a milestone during this uncertain time is a testament to Hilton’s resilience and commitment to setting the benchmark for hospitality in the world’s most sought-after destinations,” said Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “Nagasaki has long represented a gateway to Japan, and we are delighted to partner with Gloverhill Inc. to bring the first Hilton hotel to the city as we continue to expand our footprint in key destinations across the region.”
Akiyoshi Matsufuji, president and the representative director of Gloverhill Inc. said, "Nagasaki is undergoing a period of great transformation — one that occurs only every 100 years. This includes the opening of one of the largest convention centers in West Japan, the upcoming launch of the West Kyushu Shinkansen which provides great access to Nagasaki, and the urban redevelopment of the site of the former Nagasaki Prefectural Government Office building. In such a time, we are honored to manage Hilton Nagasaki and contribute to Nagasaki's tourism industry. We will work closely with our local partners to offer guests an outstanding experience with hospitality that is truly unique to Nagasaki."
The 200-room hotel features expansive guest rooms, including four suites that span up to 97 square meters, all of which offer modern conveniences including Digital Key access and TVs which can be connected to smartphones, making the hotel an ideal choice for leisure and business travelers alike. Guests can also enjoy excellent facilities such as an executive lounge for guests staying on the executive floors, flexible banquet spaces, a wedding chapel, fitness center, and a hot bath to relax and unwind at.
Hilton Nagasaki features modern, contemporary designs that draw upon the rich history and heritage of Nagasaki as a trading port city. The cultural inspirations are reflected throughout the hotel’s artwork and design motifs, embracing the city’s local traditional crafts and materials. Surrounded by the sea, the hotel is also designed with a strong maritime influence and evokes a sense of being on a sailing ship, with blue design features woven throughout the hotel to symbolize the sea.
The design concept extends to the four dining outlets which include:
- Japanese restaurant “Tamatsurumi” which serves teppanyaki, tempura and sushi with carefully selected ingredients sourced locally from Nagasaki and other parts of Japan.
- Adorning an impressive red entrance, Chinese restaurant “Fukukairo”, serves modern Chinese cuisine made with local ingredients from the nearby mountains and sea.
- At the all-day dining restaurant “De Vaert”, guests can enjoy a buffet with a wide variety of seasonal delicacies and dishes that reflect Nagasaki’s food heritage, including a mix of Japanese, Chinese and Dutch cuisine.
- Lounge and bar “Seven Seas” serves afternoon tea and evening cocktails.
Alexandra Jaritz, senior vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said “With its strategic location, distinctive design and unique dining concepts coupled with signature Hilton hospitality, I am confident that Hilton Nagasaki will become a key landmark for Nagasaki and redefine the travel experience for guests.”
Utmost priority is placed on safety and sanitization protocols throughout the guest experience. Hilton has introduced Hilton CleanStay, an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection, which is now present across all Hilton properties around the world.
