Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in a luxury serviced residence in one of the world’s biggest – and richest – cities?

The Ascott Limited, whose award-winning portfolio of serviced residences spans more than 25 countries, are about to open their first serviced residence under the Ascott The Residence brand in the center of Tokyo’s swanky business district of Marunouchi-Otemachi.

Aimed at high-level business executives on dispatch to the capital, as well as well-heeled tourists looking for a “local experience,” the serviced residence will house a range of exclusive apartments, a sky-high gym and pool, a rooftop terrace and a restaurant, as well as meeting rooms and a business center.

We were invited to a special preview and, needless to say, It. Looks. Ah-mazing. Join us on this virtual tour of Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo, opening today.

Lobby/Living Room Area

Take the swift and shiny elevator to level 22, where you’ll step out into a gorgeous marbled entrance foyer.

On the same floor, the high-ceilinged ‘Reading Lounge’ is meant to be a place to work, to meet friends or clients, or simply to relax.

The adjacent outdoor terrace…

Imagine reading the newspaper here on a sunny morning.

Has a sky-high view.

Gym/Pool Area

On to the gym area where state-of-the-art equipment and more incredible views make working out actually enjoyable. But if you do tire of looking at the sprawling metropolis below, the enormous HD screens on top of the treadmills mean you can watch Japanese television, check the likes on your latest Instagram story or keep up with the stocks as you work up a sweat.

Of course, there’s a swimming pool.

It looks like an infinity pool hanging over the edge of the city.

Separate changing areas for men and women.


Also on level 22 you’ll find a restaurant which serves Chinese, Singaporean and international cuisine; open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


There are seven different types of apartments available at Ascott Marunouchi: Studio, One Bedroom Deluxe, One Bedroom Executive, One Bedroom Premier, Two Bedroom Deluxe, Two Bedroom Executive and the biggest and most baller, the Marunouchi Suite (Three Bedroom).

Residences have separate, yes separate, living and dining areas, a kitchen and ensuite bathrooms.

They’re also fully furnished. Check out these enormous beds and their aristocratic-level pillows (didn’t we see that cushion on Downton Abbey?)

Look at this bathroom!

The kitchen comes with a rare object scarcely seen in Japan: a built-in oven.

What’s this?

That’s right, it’s a dishwasher. Remember those?

Traditional aesthetic touches, such as washi paper and tatami, run through the interior.

One of the key design concepts is based on Japan’s four seasons, reflected through subtle shifts in colors and imagery used across the different floors. Spring is on level 23 and 24, summer on level 25 and 26, autumn on levels 27 and 28 and winter on the top floor.

How much?

You had to ask, didn’t you. Currently, there is a special opening promotional campaign with some apartment rates from ¥35,000 and up per night. If you book before the 28 June 2017, you’ll also enjoy daily breakfast, daily housekeeping and free internet access, plus you can choose from one of three benefits; a voucher for your next stay, a premium bottle of red, or late check-out.

For stays of a month or more, it’s ¥450,000 per month if you make a reservation before the end of March 2017.
