Hotel Branded Residences in Japan – Finest Living Spaces

Poste date: Wednesday, August 9, 2023

We will explain here about “Hotel Branded Residences”, which are the luxury residences for ultra-wealthy people and exist in many major cities and resort areas around the world, although they are not so familiar in Japan. They are the real estate properties that have changed the mindset of people about hotels from “staying” to “living” places and that are attracting attention from investors around the world as profitable investment opportunity.

What is Hotel Branded Residences in Japan?

Residences bearing leading brand names are called “Branded Residences”.  The branded company such as Porsche, Versace, and Armani are currently in the residence business.

Among such branded residences, the residences bearing the name of world-class luxury hotels are called “Hotel Branded Residences”. They are often attached to hotel buildings, and while living in the residences, you can use the luxurious facilities of the hotels such as spa, fitness gym, room services, room cleaning, and other top-class hotel services. Another attractive point is that you can live in a residence with high quality décor equivalent to such hotel rooms. The residence unit can not only be used by the residence owner himself, but also be rented out by the owner to the hotel operator for being used by a hotel room. Four Seasons, Marriott International, Mandarin Oriental, and many other hotels offer such residences around the world.
