Meet the Team
Yoshihide HamamotoExecutive Pastry Chef
Influenced by his Japanese homeland and its intricate, delicate pastry traditions, Chef Hamamoto brings a meticulous approach to his craft. Despite the artistry of his creations, he is a firm believer in letting natural Japanese flavours define the overall taste of his desserts – especially the fruit. His signature strawberry shortcake, a fragrant vanilla sponge layered with Chantilly cream and topped with fresh Japanese strawberries, is a delicate balance of flavours that he has spent his career perfecting.
“I am happiest when eating cake, so I simply wish to bring a smile to others with my creations too.”

Savour one of Head Bartender Raul Navarro’s creations, then take a stroll in the garden to encounter the beauty of the season.
More Dining Options
Meet up with friends and mingle indoors by the fireplace, grab a seat at the sleek and modern bar, or, book a table on the large waterside terrace overlooking the pond garden and enjoy the uncomplicated, seasonal menu at our relaxed, light-filled brasserie.
Tucked away in our historic ikeniwa sits our traditional tea house, where Japanese sweets and matcha tea are served. An evening glass of Kyoto sake or premium Champagne on the terrace provides the perfect opportunity to gaze at the pond’s reflection.
The vision of Master Chef Rei Masuda, our one-Michelin-starred restaurant offers an intimate and interactive experience as you watch as our master chefs create stunning dishes made with top-quality ingredients flown in each day from Tokyo’s iconic Tsukiji market – either at the 200-year-old, 10-seat Hinoki counter, or in one of our two private-dining rooms.
Whether you want to share a romantic dinner in the privacy of your room, need to feed a hungry family or are looking for quiet evening in, our in-room menus feature Japanese and international favourites, as well as items from Brasserie, all just a tap away on your room’s iPad.
