IHG Opens Their First International Luxury Resort, ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts continues to pioneer new luxury destinations with the opening of ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa
The world’s largest luxury hotel brand – InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts – continues its legacy of pioneering luxury travel in emerging destinations with the opening of ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa.
Located in Oita Prefecture in Southwestern Japan, the world-class resort opens as the region’s first international luxury resort, offering sophisticated travellers a unique fusion of traditional hot spring culture and the InterContinental brand’s promise of modern design, award-winning dining and world-class service.
The opening strengthens the long-term venture with ANA and IHG in Japan and joins over 200 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts worldwide. Leading the way in luxury, the resort is one of four immersive resorts to open in 2019, with InterContinental Hayman Island Resort opened on 1 July and InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort and InterContinental Phuket Resort opening in September.
Renowned for its rich culture and distinguished local craftsmanship, Beppu lends itself to offering guests rare access into authentic Japanese experiences. To celebrate the opening, ANA InterContinental Resort & Spa has curated a once-in-a-lifetime package, the Beppu Luxury Collage, offering guests immersion into ancient Japanese art and craftsmanship. The Insider Experiences include a demonstration and masterclass from local Shuji Calligraphy Masters where guests learn the wonder of kanji characters and the artistic form of written expression.
Guests will also enjoy the art of bamboo weaving – an intrinsic part of the local culture with Beppu being the largest producer of madake (Japanese timber bamboo) – for an unforgettable class on bamboo ware. Elevated dining experiences include dinner at Atelier restaurant with a private sommelier, a private English picnic lunch, and a sunset dinner on-board the resort’s private yacht. Full inclusions available online; the package is priced from USD$13,800 for two people. For reservations and further information, please visit here: https://anaicbeppu.com/
