Pan Pacific Hotels Group has expanded its footprint in Japan after opening two new hotels in Tokyo.

Bellustar Tokyo, a Pan Pacific Hotel (pictured) and Hotel Groove Shinjuku, a ParkRoyal Hotel are both situated in the heart of the Shinjuku district. 

Bellustar Tokyo, a Pan Pacific Hotel is located on the upper floors of Tokyo Kabukicho Tower, Shinjuku’s latest landmark skyscraper. 

It features 97 rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the city skyline. Accommodation includes five one-bedroom penthouse suites on the 45th and 47th floor.

Penthouse guests get exclusive access to the Penthouse Lounge on the 46th floor, ideal for private meetings, gatherings and afternoon tea. 

Food and beverage venues include modern French restaurant Bellustar; Bar Bellustar, offering a range of wine, sake, cocktails and mocktails; Teppanyaki restaurant Teppan Ten-yu; and Sushi JIN-È offering Edomae-style sushi, with views of Mount Fuji and Tokyo city.

Hotel Groove Shinjuku, A ParkRoyal Hotel, is also located within the Tokyo Kabukicho Tower, occupying the 18th to 38th floors.

The 538-room features a mix of unique art and music offerings inspired by the entertainment scene in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district. The hotel has collaborated with renowned local artists Yoshiaki Kaihatsu, Takuro Tamayama and Tomoyuki Washio to create nine guest rooms depicting the ancient art history and culture of Kabukicho and Shinjuku.

Facilities include dining and bar space JAM17 on 17th floor, which features a rooftop terrace equipped with a giant live screen and live entertainment; JAM17 GELETARIA; and JAM17 BAR.

“It is an exciting time for Pan Pacific Hotels Group as we expand our footprint in Japan with the Japanese tourism industry rebounding in recent months following the relaxation of pandemic restrictions, with over one million arrivals in February this year,” said Marcel NA Holman, vice president of operations for Japan, Indonesia and China at Pan Pacific Hotels Group.

Pan Pacific Hotels Group chief executive Choe Peng Sum added: “The opening of the two iconic hotels marked a key milestone for the Pan Pacific Hotels Group as we expand into Japan. The strategic and long-standing partnership with Tokyu Hotels and Resorts over the years gave us the opportunity to bring our international brands and their unique experiences to travellers in Tokyo. 

“Earlier this year, the group opened ParkRoyal Langkawi in February; we will be opening the brand new 347-room Pan Pacific Orchard in June; and the newly refurbished Pan Pacific Singapore this August.” 

Pan Pacific Hotels Group owns and manages more than 50 hotels, resorts and serviced suites across three brands: Pan Pacific, ParkRoyal Collection and ParkRoyal. The Singapore-based group operates in more than 30 cities across Asia Pacific, North America and Europe.
