This exclusive Hakone ryokan has a great reputation, blending modern comforts with traditional Japanese ryokan aesthetics and service. It is a member of Relais & Chateaux, a French federation of independent luxury properties.
Unapologetically expensive, the Gora Kadan is the premier choice in Hakone for a luxurious ryokan stay and whether as a base for exploring the area or simply as a spa retreat, its impeccable service and attention to the smallest detail is sure to impress.
The traditional Japanese cuisine is as good as it gets, but Western style breakfasts are also offered. The ryokan’s own natural hot-spring water fills the various hot-spring baths, or onsen. Most rooms have private baths outdoors or with a view, but the more traditional single sex communal onsen are also highly recommended.
