Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen

What kind of onsen ryokan is Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen?

This is a luxury boutique ryokan with hot springs in Kyoto.  It’s like a hideaway for adults.  The property has wonderful rooms with private outdoor hot springs.  If you are looking for 5-star ryokans in Kyoto, the property would be perfect.  There are 13 rooms only.  The property completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  On the other hand, if this is your first visit to Kyoto, I wouldn’t recommend it.  You might want to stay in Kyoto City.  The location is a little far away from central Kyoto.  Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen is located in Kameoka City.  It takes 40-50min from Kyoto Station to the property.  The ryokan would be great for couples, families, small groups, and solo travelers.  *A minimum age requirement of 7 applies.  Solo travelers can book rooms on weekdays only.  The ambiance is serene, charming, and relaxed.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, it would be easy from Kyoto Station.  Free shuttle service is available from Kameoka Station at 13:30, 14:30, 15:30, 16:30, or 17:30.  You need to book it in advance.  JFYI, it takes 28min by train from Kyoto Station to Kameoka Station.

Where is the best accommodation for anniversary in Kyoto?

If you are looking for unique venues for special occasions, the property would be one of the best.  The staff arranges flowers and cakes to celebrate an anniversary at additional charges if you request in advance.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with outdoor private hot springs.  We fully enjoyed our private onsen until check-out time.  The water temperature tends to be lukewarm.  The spring quality is very smooth, moist, and soft.  Even if this is your first time staying at ryokans, you wouldn’t feel any stress during your stay.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  The housekeeping was excellent.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, bathrobes, pajamas, samue outfits, yukatas, Japanese sweets, English tea bags, a green tea set, a complimentary minibar including beer and wine, and a coffee machine with capsules, etc.  There are some colorful yukatas and pillows which you can choose.   You can travel light.  Also, a DVD player, a Blu-ray player, and a humidifier were placed in our room.  Then complimentary drinks, snacks, Japanese sweets, and Häagen-Dazs ice cream are available in the lobby.  It couldn’t be better.  Room service is not available.  Free Wifi reception was good in our room.

How about In-house Facilities?

There are wonderful large communal hot springs.  They are open from 14:00-24:00, 5:00-10:00.  Also, there is an amazing outdoor private family hot spring.  It costs 2,000JPY for 50min.  You need to book it when you check-in at the reception if you want to use it.  This is open from 7:00-9:50, 14:00-21:50.  You should try it.  Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the communal hot springs, use reserved private family one, or book a room with an outdoor private one.  Then Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen is not a perfect universal design.  There are few steps, though.  A wheelchair is available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you might want to book a room with a private hot spring as you wouldn’t need to move around once you enter your room.  Then there is no convenience store within walking distance.  You might want to buy your necessities before coming here.

How about meals?

Kyoto-style kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was just divine.  Each food is carefully prepared.  It may be a little challenging for the western palate, but it’s worth it.  If you are a gourmet, you must be happy.  The portion tends to be small.  All food is served in a private room in the dining area.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies or dietary needs.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then, as far as I know, there is no restaurant around the property.  The location is out of the way.  You may want to book a room including meals.

My impressions

All staff tends to be proactive, warm, and helpful.  They are the loveliest group.  If you want to experience signature Japanese hospitality with a personal touch, you should stay here.  Overall, the ryokan has great value for money if you compared it to other luxury ones.  If you want to get much of an immersive luxurious onsen ryokan experience, it’s well worth staying here.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the onsen ryokan on Agoda
