2. Brush Up On Your Stroke With An Olympian Ahead Of Tokyo 2020
As Tokyo gears up to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, guests of Palace Hotel Tokyo can get into the spirit with Energizing Tokyo, a stay & spa package that comes replete with an à la carte menu of fitness pursuits – including swimming with an Olympian and a private meditation session with a Buddhist monk – to refresh both body and mind. The core of the two-night package is a daily breakfast and one 90-minute therapy, per person, at Japan’s only evian SPA. From there guests can pick and choose what interests them, for an additional fee, including taking a swim lesson with a former Olympic swimmer, a private guided bike excursion around Tokyo, a kayaking outing, or more contemplative pursuits like a Japanese tea ceremony experience with a legendary tea house master, or an introduction to Japanese calligraphy with a highly decorated shodo artist. Package rates start from JPY 172,000 for a Deluxe with Balcony Room.
