Dorchester Collection will expand its stable of ultra-luxury hotels to Asia for the first time, having been selected to manage a new property in Japan’s highest building, the ‘Torch Tower’ in Tokyo.
Currently under construction and slated to open in 2028, Dorchester Tokyo will join the company’s award-winning portfolio on nine properties in London, Paris, Milan, Rome and Los Angeles. Next year, the collection will open its maiden hotel in the Middle East – The Lana, Dubai.
Each of these hotels has a strong individuality rooted in the city’s culture and heritage, and forms an integral part of the local community. The highly anticipated hotel in Tokyo’s Torch Tower will provide guests with bespoke Japanese hospitality, combined with the brand’s elevated service and experiences.
Located in the upper floors of Torch Tower, the hotel will offer panoramic views of Tokyo Bay, the city centre, as well as of Mt. Fuji. The tower will also feature an indoor garden dubbed ‘Sky Hill’ which Dorchester Collection says will provide “an oasis of tranquillity, where the joys of nature can be enjoyed through all the senses”.
“This new hotel will become a beacon for Japan’s ultra-luxury hotel landscape and set new benchmarks,” said Christopher Cowdray, CEO of Dorchester Collection. “World-class architects will inspire with their symbolic design torch concept, lighting up not only the future of Tokyo and Japan but also the world.
“Tokyo has long been an integral part of our growth strategy given it is a gateway to Asia and its global significance, and to be partnering with the highly esteemed Mitsubishi Estate Co. Ltd. and Tokyo Century Corporation is a true honour. Their core values are perfectly aligned with ours given the vision of ‘a love for people, a love for the city’ and our ‘We Care’ philosophy.”
Junichi Yoshida, President & CEO of Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd said of the partnership: “We are confident that by infusing the culture and hospitality that Dorchester Collection has cultivated over the years, the hotel will provide a “one-of-a-kind experience” that is unique to this location.”
