Ritz-Carlton to open new hotels in Thailand and Japan

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company and YTL Hotels will develop two new hotels in Asia Pacific, The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui in Thailand and a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Niseko Village, set at the base of Mount Niseko-Annupuri in Japan.

With only 50 guest rooms, the ski-in and ski-out Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be the first in Japan and is scheduled for completion in 2020. The resort will be located at the heart of Niseko Village. It will have views of Mount Yotei or Ezo Fuji.

Upon opening, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve resort will be the fifth property in Japan for The Ritz-Carlton, joining Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Okinawa. The hotel will also be YTL Hotels' fourth hotel in Niseko.
