Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s global portfolio of 31 hotel brands, has opened Sheraton Kagoshima, hallmarking the brand’s 150th property in Asia-Pacific and the first Sheraton property in Japan to exemplify the brand’s modernized design concept as part of its global transformation journey.
Situated on a picturesque bay with a backdrop of Mount Sakurajima in Kagoshima, Sheraton Kagoshima draws on the brand’s roots as a gathering place for both locals and guests in communities around the world, creating an intuitive and holistic experience with places to connect, be productive, and bring a sense of belonging.
Guest Rooms & Club Lounges
Featuring a total of 228 guest rooms and suites, each room features light wood tones with spectacular views overlooking Sakurajima and Kagoshima city.
All rooms include the Sheraton signature amenities, including the signature bed.
The overall design of Sheraton Kagoshima showcases the natural beauty of Kagoshima featuring its graceful open-plan interiors that incorporate materials and scenery from the city, connecting visitors to Kagoshima’s culture and traditions.
Design details in the guest rooms are inspired by the topography of Kagoshima, and in some of the hotel’s restaurants, menu items are served on traditional Kagoshima-style chinaware created by local artisans.
Club rooms and suites are located in the upper floors and all suites can enjoy access to the Sheraton Club.
The Sheraton Club, an exclusive space for Marriott Bonvoy Elite members and Club level guests, offers an elevated experience in which guests are uplifted through meaningful productivity and a connection to the environment.
The space is purposefully designed for a layered and engaging experience that transitions seamlessly with activations from morning to evening. Guests will find curated food and beverage offerings, premium amenities, enhanced connectivity, and 24/7 access to provide a private environment.
Sheraton Kagoshima offers three event venues with a total of 6,565 square meters, which provide ideal spaces to host events for up to 300 guests. All event venues at the hotel enjoy high-speed internet access as well as the latest audio-visual equipment and professional banquet services.
The Fitness Center is equipped with free weights, cardio machines and more.
The hotel’s Spa has a Japanese style onsen and is a sanctuary of relaxation featuring natural volcanic hot spring pools and foot baths.
“Whether guests are visiting for leisure or business, we look forward to welcoming guests at Sheraton Kagoshima, which captures the warm spirit and character of our city with its new design, inviting spaces, and warm Japanese hospitality,” said Takeki Toda, General Manager, Sheraton Kagoshima.
Located in Japan’s Kyushu Island, Kagoshima is often compared to the city of Naples in Italy for its mild climate, palm-lined streets, bay location, and proximity to a scenically striking active stratovolcano.
Just a ten-minute drive from the hotel are nearby attractions such as Shiroyama Park, where guests can see a spectacular birds-eye view of the city, Kagoshima Bay, and Mount Sakurajima.
The hotel is located approximately 40 kilometres, or about a half hour car ride from Kagoshima Airport, and a short distance from the Takenohashi tram station which connects guests to Kagoshima Chuo Station of Kagoshima.
