Emerging from a stylish conversion, this five-star Radisson Collection hotel is now hosting travellers in two buildings comprising 89 guestrooms, including five suites, with touches of bronze, glass and marble, soft blue furnishings and parquet floors. These rooms are joined by a fine-dining restaurant, rooftop swimming pool and terrace with lounge bar, as well as a solarium, gym and spa. The property is especially notable for being home to a gastronomic concept offering the innovative Spanish cuisine of Michelin-starred chef Aneko Atxa.

The project was developed by Millenium Hotels Real Estates, with Borgos Pieper leading the architectural design, and represents Radisson Collection’s first property in Spain. This newly opened hotel lies at the heart of Seville on a palm tree-lined pedestrian square close to the city’s museums, theatres and royal palaces, showcasing contemporary interiors inspired by the area’s history and urban life. Moreover, the impressive property runs entirely on renewable energy, achieving Spain’s first LEED Hospitality Gold Level.

Hilton Worldwide’s LXR Hotels & Resorts brand has marked its debut in APAC with the opening of Roku Kyoto.

Intended to provide a one-of-a-kind stay, this new property lies within the 28.6-acre Shozan Resort Kyoto, home to idyllic Japanese gardens, historic architecture and authentic teahouses. All of this is situated beneath the Takagamine mountains of northern Kyoto and within walking distance of famous sights including the Kinkaku-ji ‘Golden Pavilion’.
