THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
W Osaka opened yesterday, March 16th, and is the brand new child of W Hotels Worldwide making its debut on the Midosuji Boulevard and redefines the local hotel scene with the trademark W Hotels spin on luxury. The W Osaka blends the Japanese cultural heritage with bold contemporary designs in a unique ambience of playful chic and immeasurable sophistication.
The hotel’s outside design was overseen by the international architect Tadao Ando, who created a black monolith façade, a minimalist exterior with a colourful interior design that was carried out by Concrete Architectural Associates from the Netherlands who has recreated the image of Osaka’s city lights with dazzling neon lights.
Upon entering the Hotel W Osaka, guests enter an illuminated tunnel inspired by the Japanese art forms of origami and kirigami, with nature and seasons paintings on the walls. On the third floor of the hotel is where the social hub LIVING ROOM exists – guests are greeted with vivid colours and a breath-taking design displaying an original interpretation of the whimsical Kawaii Kokeshi wooden dolls, known for celebrating the diversity of W Osaka’s international guests. In the LIVING ROOM is where guests can also find one of the two bars the hotel has to offer, that serve a line-up of colourful cocktails.
The W Osaka has four restaurants and two bars that offer a global flavour merge with iconic Japanese cuisine. Bistro-diner OH.LALA brings to life a partnership with Chef Yusuke Takada delivering high expectations to reinvent gastronomy with W Osaka’s creative culinary team.
The restaurant TEPPANYAKI MYDO offers its spin on local soul food in addition to exquisite Japanese Kuroge and Akaushi Wagyu beef. The restaurant MIXUP combines art, natural lighting and a chic colour palette while serving pastries, coffee, tea and cocktails for an amplified urban experience right on the main street.
The SUSHI UKIYO is an omakase-style restaurant with its interior design based on the concept of a floating world – a reference to the waterways that can be found in Osaka. And the last bar – the WET BAR presents an eclectic list of creative cocktails next to the swimming pool.
The W Osaka has a total of 337 rooms and suites all of which afford stunning views of Osaka’s skyline with floor-to-ceiling glass windows; with the washrooms spacious and equipped with rainfall showers. The property’s top suite – the Extreme Wow Penthouse Suite – is a truly remarkable space with a Zen-inspired garden at its entrance along, a chrome soaking tub and even an in-suite DJ booth.
