The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama

Modern luxury on the Yokohama waterfront

The aloha spirit comes ashore in Japan in the form of The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama. The sister property of Hawaii’s storied luxury resort of the same name, the Yokohama outpost blends tranquil island vibes with modern Japanese luxury to sumptuous effect.

A self-proclaimed “crystal modern” style envelops the entire hotel, from the sleek glass exterior and statuesque silver sculpture in the lobby to the geometric patterns that adorn everything from the tiled lobby floor to the accent walls in the plush accommodations. An abundance of fresh flowers and harbor views offers a gorgeous tie-in to the hotel’s Hawaiian heritage, while a traditional water garden provides a distinctly Japanese moment of Zen.

A prime location on Yokohama’s waterfront affords the luxury hotel gorgeous views of the lively Minato Mirai district, a feature the property takes full advantage of with floor-to-ceiling windows in all its rooms and dining venues.

The Restaurants

  • Italian dining venue Ristorante Ozio gives a stylish nod to The Kahala Hotel & Resort’s beachside roots with distinctive shell-shaped booths, scale-inspired plates and elegant, ocean-hued seating. The restaurant serves up artfully presented Italian dishes on par with the chic decor.
  • Classic Japanese dining gets an uber-upscale twist at Hama, where kaiseki cuisine is served in an array of private dining rooms secluded by traditional shoji paper screens and carved wooden latices.
  • For a livelier meal, head for Hama’s teppanyaki counter. Mouthwatering aged meats and super-fresh seafood are cooked tableside while you soak up views of the serene Japanese water garden through floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • The elegant Kahala Lounge’s velvet settees, crystal chandelier and baby grand piano are a luxurious throwback to its Hawaiian sister property’s heyday. Signature cocktails served in golden pineapple mugs are a cheeky nod to the Yokohama hotel’s heritage.
