OKURA Nikko Hotel Management Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of Hotel Okura Co. Ltd. announced that two of its group hotels achieved top-5 rankings in the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards. The Okura Tokyo was ranked 4th in the category of hotels in Japan and The Kahala Hotel & Resort was ranked 5th in the category of hotels in Hawaii.

According to General Manager of The Okura Tokyo, Shinji Umehara said Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards, an annual ranking of the world’s hotels, resorts and other travel destinations and facilities, constitute the longest running and most prestigious program recognizing excellence in the travel industry. This year, more than 700,000 readers from around the world submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe.

“It is a great honor to have been so highly ranked in this prestigious international award program less than a year after reopening. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all those who supported our hotel during its four years of rebuilding and who looked forward so much to its re-opening,” Shinji Umehara said.

Umehara also explained that the world finds itself in a very difficult situation right now, but we are looking forward to the post-COVID era and the return of overseas visitors to Japan.

“In order to welcome guests once again from around the world, we will do our best as one of Japan’s leading hotels to provide Japanese-style omotenashi hospitality imbued with the spirit of “hospitality and harmony” that we have maintained since our establishment in 1962,” Umehara noted

Umehara concluded that Okura Nikko Hotels will continue to contribute to the promotion and development of the global travel industry at the hotels that featured in this year’s Condé Nast awards and at all of our other 76 group hotels in Japan and overseas. [businesswire/]
