Far East Hospitality Makes Bold Move with Official Opening of Far East Village Hotel Ariake
SINGAPORE, July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Far East Hospitality, one of the leading operators of hotels and serviced 
residences, today announced that its Far East Village Hotel Ariake in Japan is 
officially opened for business. Previously known as Village Hotel Ariake Tokyo, 
the 306-key property is the first hotel under the Village brand to expand its 
presence outside of Singapore.

"We live in bizarre times today, but it is never too soon to start looking for 
opportunities. Domestic travel has picked up in Japan since the easing of 
travel curbs in June. After careful evaluation and consideration, we decided 
that now is the right time to open," said Mr Arthur Kiong, Chief Executive of 
Far East Hospitality. "We have confidence in the domestic market -- 
particularly business travellers. Opening now also gives our operation teams 
opportunity to fine-tune all areas and they will be ready when the market 
eventually picks up."

Located in Koto City, the eastern part of Tokyo, Far East Village Hotel Ariake 
targets the domestic business community who will be attending conferences and 
exhibitions at Tokyo Big Sight -- one of Japan's premier exhibition arenas and 
convention centre. Post COVID-19, the Ariake district will be bustling with 
excitement as sports events and concerts resume and take place at Ariake Tennis 
Park or the Ariake Arena -- both a short walk away from the hotel. The hotel is 
thus perfect for domestic leisure travellers who want to be at the heart of all 
the action.

Urban explorations

Guests -- whether on business or leisure trips -- will be able to look forward 
to customised experiences.

Start the day bright and early to catch the auction at Toyosu Market -- the 
world's largest wholesale seafood and food market. To fully immerse in culture 
and history of the area, guests can choose to visit teamLab Planets -- Japan's 
emerging art scene, or go on a historical journey at the Edo-Tokyo Museum. The 
fashionable Ginza neighbourhood and Tokyo Disneyland Resort are also located 
nearby for guests to explore over the weekend.

These experiences will be included in the Village Passport -- a travel guide 
that highlights the best shopping, dining, and sightseeing places to explore 
and enjoy in the local precinct.

The hotel, constructed and designed by Shimizu Corporation, features a 
contemporary interior with a neutral colour palette. It retains Japanese 
elements while incorporating Singapore-inspired hospitality of comfort without 
excess, and aesthetics without ostentation.

Guest rooms are fitted with the latest technology such as artificial 
intelligence speakers that allow guests to make multilingual voice commands.

Guests will also be able to spot our staff members decked in igeta-patterned 
uniforms that capture the Japanese essence.

With travellers realigning their priorities to put safety first, there has been 
an increasing endeavour to ensure public cleanliness and hygiene.

kiosks for check-in and check-out and contactless payment solutions. In 
addition, modern self-serve vending facilities such as money changers will 
enable the guest to be independent and allow for contactless service at their 
convenience.

Safe Management Measures have been established in accordance to the local 
regulations to ensure that the highest level of safety and hygiene is 
maintained at all times. High touch areas will undergo a high frequency of 
cleaning and disinfecting, protective screen are installed at service touch 
points and in the restaurant area, safe distancing measures are in place, safe 
entry measures including temperature taking of all guests and employees, and 
appropriate protective gear will be worn where required.
