DSC_0527Resorttrust Group, owner of the Kahala Hotel & Resort in Hawaii, announced plans to expand the Kahala brand into Japan and will open the Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama next year.

The new property will combine “Hawaii’s intellectually stimulating and sensual Aloha spirit with Yokohama’s reverence for and history of adopting world cultures,” the company said.

The 146-key hotel will offer guest rooms with what the hotel refers to as a “crystal modern” décor that feature a classic black-and-white palette.

Dining options will include a restaurant offering Italian cuisine, a traditional Japanese teppanyaki restaurant, as well as a lounge and a bar.

The hotel’s spa will offer indoor baths with views of Yokohama, a dry sauna in the Men’s Spa, and a steam sauna in the Women’s Spa. Other amenities will include a 66-foot-long (20-meter-long) heated swimming pool, a fitness center, and a beauty salon.

For meetings and events, the hotel offers two ballrooms.   The larger is a 4,380-square-foot (407-square meter) space that can be into two, and the smaller ballroom cover 2,185 square feet (203 square meters).

Yokohama is Japan’s second largest city and is known for its expansive Chinatown, the Minato Mirai seaside district, and the Sankei-en Garden, a botanical park containing Japanese residences from different eras.

The Kahala Hotel in Hawaii first opened its doors to guests in 1964 and is known for, among other things, its natural ocean-water lagoon with the hotel’s own resident dolphins.
