InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8 is a new-build luxury hotel within the Yokohama Hammer Head Project, set to open in November. The development includes a cruise ship terminal for large vessels. The property is the brand’s second in the city, following the iconic InterContinental Yokohama Grand.

“We are very pleased to open a hotel that will be a new symbol in the same place as our first InterContinental in Japan. InterContinental Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of the 200th hotel in 2018 and continues to deliver luxury travel to emerging destinations all over the world. The brand continues to expand in Japan, following ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa, which is scheduled to open in August this year, and will continue to touch the heart of the world’s largest luxury brand, InterContinental,” commented Hans Heijligers, CEO, IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan.

The property includes more than 170 guestrooms, multiple dining options, event spaces, a spa, fitness center, public rooftop and indoor garden.

“We are very pleased to be able to open the second InterContinental hotel in Yokohama City, InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8. The new hotel will form part of three facilities: a passenger cruise terminal, commercial precinct and the luxury hotel. Located on the third to fifth floors of the complex, there is no better way to see the dynamic view which spans the rare marine location in Japan, surrounded by the sea in three directions. We will strive to deliver the hospitality we have cultivated here for 28 years, enhancing the experience for many customers coming from within Japan or abroad,” said Azuma Umemura, president and representative director, Yokohama Grand InterContiental Co., Ltd.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
