CapitaLand’s wholly-owned serviced residence business unit, The Ascott Limited, has opened its first luxury serviced residence in Japan under the premier Ascott The Residence brand, on 30 March 2017.

Located in the prime Marunouchi-Otemachi area, the 130-unit Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo is part of an integrated development that also comprises offices, and is surrounded by must-go places such as the Imperial Palace East Gardens and the Ginza district. The Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo is also conveniently connected to Otemachi Station, one of Tokyo’s largest subway stations served by five different lines, and access to the Shinkansen bullet train is available from nearby Tokyo station.

An understated colour palette of warm earth tones and pastels is used throughout Ascott Marunouchi, softening the silhouettes of the glass and steel towers outside. The design experience begins as one moves from the busy thoroughfare into a ground-floor foyer enveloped in warm and welcoming hues of brown, bronze and soft gold. In the lift, panels of brown and bubble-filled blue glass evoke a sense of fluid motion. As one travels upward, the lighting shifts subtly from blue to white, anticipating the expansive view that unfolds to greet guests at the 22nd floor.

Tan Lai Seng, Ascott’s Regional GM for Japan and Korea said: “Ascott The Residence, our premier brand that has been recognised worldwide with numerous accolades, is home to top business executives, dignitaries as well as industry leaders. Since we started operations in Japan more than 10 years ago, Ascott has built a strong reputation with our Citadines and Somerset brands. Many of our customers have been eagerly anticipating the opening of our first Ascott-branded property in the country.

“With Japan’s growing economy, Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo’s strategic location where many multinational companies and major Japanese banks and companies are based, and its timely opening ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, we are confident that the serviced residence will be a draw for discerning business and leisure travellers seeking a world class experience and the comforts of home.”

At Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo, Ascott Hosts are on hand round the clock to provide guests with personalised services. The urban oasis will feature spacious studios to three-bedroom units that provide a view of the city or garden. For a local experience, guests can also choose apartments that come with a Japanese tatami mattress.

Each apartment has separate living and dining areas, a fully-equipped kitchen* and ensuite bathrooms, making it a perfect space for business executives to share. In addition to the business centre and meeting rooms, facilities such as a swimming pool, gymnasium, roof-top terrace and reading lounge are available.
