Fraser Suites Akasaka will officially open in Central Tokyo today, bringing the luxury of space and tranquillity to Tokyo’s Central Business District.
The 22-storey, gold-standard serviced residence is strategically located near major transportation hubs, foreign embassies, the Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) Television and is surrounded by major local and multinational corporations. Nestled in an upscale district, Fraser Suites Akasaka is home to excellent restaurants that offer a myriad of food and beverage offerings.
As the third-largest economy in the world, Japan has always been a strategic market for Frasers Hospitality, with Tokyo being a key gateway city for business. Despite COVID-19 leading to a temporary halt to tourism, Tokyo has consistently been the most visited city in Japan, and almost four in10 business travellers on an average stay of more than seven days each time.
CEO of Frasers Hospitality, Koh Teck Chuan said: “With domestic travel demand picking up, and discussions for travel bubbles underway4, the opening of this property in Tokyo is a harbinger for travel recovery. Over the past few months, there has been a lot of conversation about how travel will look post COVID-19, and we’ve used the opportunity to redefine and adopt new hospitality standards to ensure the safety and well-being of all our guests and employees.”
A recent survey of Fraser World members to gauge travel sentiments post-COVID-19 found that 74 per cent of leisure travellers would prefer to stay at serviced apartments. This underscores the benefits of serviced apartments for both international and domestic travellers. Besides flexibility and privacy, serviced apartments offer amenities and modern conveniences within the comfort of their own apartment.
“With our commitment to #FraserCares underpinning everything we do, the property offers the perfect accommodation for business and leisure travellers looking to resume travel in Japan,” Chuan added.
“Fraser Suites Akasaka has adopted heightened measures, including the availability of hand sanitiser in common public areas, access to masks for all guests, as well as increased cleaning and disinfection of high contact points within apartments. In addition, we are keeping pace with changes in travel advisories and amending policies accordingly, as well as extending flexibility on bookings where needed. We would like to assure guests that we are doing all we can to ensure peace of mind while continuing to provide the same quality and thoughtful service,” said Ms Huang Meilin, General Manager of Fraser Suites Akasaka.
