Hotel gardens have a crucial role in the overall guest experience. Gardens are known to have a nourishing effect on us, the floral-tinged fresh air, the sight of blooming gardenias and cherry blossoms or the soothing sounds of a trickling stream that makes us feel closer to nature, even when space is in the midst of a city landscape, creating the perfect oasis in a concrete desert. We gathered a top 10 hotel gardens from all over the world that will help you revive and nourish the soul.
1.Villa d’Este, Lago di Como, Italy
Villa d’Este Hotel is located in a natural and private cove on Lake Como, embracing the vibrant scenery and the calm and cool waters of the lake. In this amazing hotel’s garden, we find statues of Hercules and lady banks roses, southern magnolias and Chinese wisteria. The gardens have the characteristic Baroque scenery of Lombardy with nuances of Renaissance and romantic styles.
2.Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, Japan
Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is an inner-city hotel with a garden of over 700-years complete with a shrine, tea-room, rows of cherry blossom trees and roaring waterfalls. Hotel Chinzanso is a contemporary hotel that still is connected with an authentic Japanese flair.
3.Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, Japan
The Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto rests on an 800-year-old property that used to belong to Shigemori Taira, the eldest son of a 12t century samurai. The garden at the Four Seasons Kyoto is one of the last remaining gardens from the end of the Heian Period. The circuit-style pond garden, ikeniwa, brings peace as we wander around the tree and water lined paths. The ancient garden takes on a new look all year long – it bursts with cherry blossoms in the spring, fuchsia crape myrtle in the summer, maple leaves in the autumn and plum blossoms in the winter.
4.Mirbeau Inn & Spa Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States
The Mirbeau Inn is perfect for those who daydream of relaxing at a quiet chateau of the French countryside. The hotel grounds resemble Claude Monet’s series ‘Water Lillies’. The gardens have the typical red maple trees, dogwoods and weeping willows, shrubs of dwarf fothergilla, redleaf ninebark and bush clover and of course, a replica of the iconic green bridge stretching over a waterlily-dotted pond that Monet made famous.
5.The Langham Huntington, Pasadena, United States
Since opening its doors in 1906, The Langham Huntington has become the go-to hotel when visiting Pasadena. Located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Langham Huntington’s garden has four gardens within its twenty-three acres. The garden has a stone path that leads to a pond surrounded by pear blossom trees, a palm-lined Horsehoe garden and a beautiful Japanese Garden with a step-down waterfall pond, cherry blossom trees and a curved red footbridge.
6.Hotel New Otani Tokyo The Main and Hotel New Otani Tokyo Executive House Zen, Japan
The sister hotels are joined by a 10 acre Japanese garden with ancient stone lanterns, scarlet bridges, koi ponds, breath-taking waterfalls and seasonal blooms, such as sakuras and hydrangeas. This beautiful garden is over 400 years old, having belonged to several samurai lords. The New Otani Hotels were built for Tokyo’s first Olympic games, more than 50 years ago.
7.Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, England
Located in England’s countryside, the Four Seasons Hampshire is an 18th-century structure at Dogmersfield Park, the famous place where Henry the VIII met his first wife Catherine of Aragon.

10.Rosewood San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
