There are so many things to do in Tokyo that a day spent running around the city can be absolutely exhausting. Shouldn’t you find a hotel that serves as a place to relax at the end of the day?
Finding the Best Spa Hotels in Tokyo
In preparation for my upcoming trip, I thought I would do some research on the best spa hotels in the city. Though it’s not usually something I look into, Japan is well known for its great spa treatments and its focus on wellness, so here are the best hotels I found where you can unwind at the end of a day with traditional Japanese treatments.

Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi
The Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi is in the chic, upscale Ginza neighborhood of Tokyo. If you want a hotel with a full-service spa, bar, and lounge that offers easy access to central train stations and a great shopping area, stay at the Four Seasons.
This modern high-rise Conrad Tokyo hotel includes the Mizuki Spa & Fitness Center, which looks out through glass panels onto the lights of Tokyo. Relax by visiting the dry and steam sauna, whirlpool, or the Hinoki bathtub made from Japanese cypress. It’s also within walking distance of the Hama Rikyu Gardens for further relaxation in the gardens or adjoining teahouse.
Hotel Nikko Tokyo
Stay at the Hotel Nikko Tokyo to experience luxury treatment in Odaiba. Get traditional Japanese body treatments, massages, and facials in the spa. This is also one of the closest spa hotels to Tokyo Tower.
The Prince Park Tower Tokyo Hotel
If you want to stay in a hotel that lets you get away from the chaos and traffic of Tokyo streets, stay at The Prince Park Tower Tokyo Hotel. Not only do they have one of the best and most relatively inexpensive spas in the city, the hotel also has great views of Ginza and is right next to Shiba Park and a Buddhist Temple.
