Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of Sheraton Kagoshima, marking the brand’s 150th property in Asia-Pacific and the first Sheraton property in Japan. The hotel is situated on a picturesque bay with a backdrop of Mount Sakurajima in 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 an active stratovolcano.
Daily Social is the hotel’s casual all-day dining restaurant, which serves buffet and à la carte menu items. Flying Hog Grill, the hotel’s signature restaurant, serves Kurobuta black pork, a local specialty; free-range Jidori chicken; and oven-roasted Peking duck. Satsumagma, a modern Japanese restaurant and sake bar, offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The glasshouse-inspired Vivarium is the spot for cocktails, aperitifs or nightcaps. Pretty cool: Menu items are served on traditional Kagoshima-style chinaware, created by local artisans
All 228 guestrooms and suites have signature amenities and light wood tones with views overlooking Sakurajima and Kagoshima city. Club rooms and suites are located in the upper floors and all suites offer access to the Sheraton Club. This is an exclusive space for Marriott Bonvoy Elite members and Club-level guests. Guests can enjoy 24/7 access to curated F&B offerings, premium amenities and enhanced connectivity.
Sheraton Kagoshima offers three event venues with a total of 70,665 square feet, which can host events for up to 300 guests. All event venues offer high-speed internet access, the latest audio-visual equipment and professional banquet services. Other facilities include a spa with an onsen comprising hot spring pools and foot baths, and a fitness center.
Attractions within a 10-minute drive from the hotel include Shiroyama Park, where guests can have a birds-eye view of the city; Kagoshima Bay; and Mount Sakurajima. The hotel is located about a 30-minute drive from the airport, and a short distance from the Takenohashi tram station which connects guests to Kagoshima Chuo Station.
