InterContinental Hotels Group will open ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort and Spa this August. The new-build resort will open as the first international luxury resort in the Oita Prefecture in Japan, offering 89 guest rooms with bamboo work and a nature-inspired meetings and events space, The Gallery. The Gallery will feature mesh ceilings woven with rattan, pillars made of traditional Japanese paper and carpet depicting Beppu’s famous hot spring steam wisps. In addition, the hotel will offer boutique meeting rooms.
Those pillars sound awfully pretty… so much so that I wouldn’t mind if my sight line was obscured.
