The ANA InterContinental Tokyo will open its fourth floor Garden Pool, an outdoor swimming pool, from June 27 to Sept. 30.
The view of Tokyo skyscrapers in the Roppongi-Akasaka area from the Garden Pool is magnificent, with Tokyo Tower right up front. The pool is surrounded by the greenery of the Ark Hills, creating a luxurious space in central Tokyo and making guests feel as if they are in an urban oasis.
The 20 x 13 meter pool is larger than most found in Tokyo hotels, and deck chairs promise a comfortable time.
A variety of food and beverages will be available at The Poolside Snack cafe, which seats 30 people.
In the evening, with Tokyo Tower bathed in lights, the poolside and the bottom of the pool also twinkle in fantastical illumination. Guests can enjoy dinner at the poolside snack bar.
The pool is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., except between July 25 and Aug. 31, when it’s open until 9 p.m.
Admission is ¥7,000 on weekdays and ¥13,000 on weekends, holidays and from Aug. 10 to Aug. 14, for those not staying at the hotel. Hotel guests can use the pool for ¥4,000, but only one time per stay. Children 5 or younger are free, but they can use only the children’s pool.
Bathing suits and goggles are available for rental.
A summer accommodation plan with free access to the pool is also available from July 1 to Sept. 30, priced at ¥31,000 per night with breakfast and ¥28,000 without.
Another recommendation for the summer is to spend some time at the sophisticated MIXX Bar & Lounge on the 36th floor of the hotel. It boasts a magnificent view of many Tokyo landmarks, including the Imperial Palace, the National Diet Building and Tokyo Midtown skyscrapers.
The lounge is open from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. from Monday to Thursday, and until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays and midnight Sundays.
The ANA InterContinental Tokyo is five minutes from Tameike-Sanno Station (Ginza and Namboku lines). For more information or reservations, call 03-3505-1185, or visit www.anaintercontinental-tokyo.jp.
