Stay Here: Grand Hyatt Fukuoka, Japan

Grand Hyatt Fukuoka balances convenience and comfort with five-star amenities

What’s the Deal?

At a touch over 20 years old, the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka might not yet qualify as a grande dame. But as soon as you walk through its doors, there’s an undeniable grandeur to this 370-room, facility-stuffed hotel.



On first impression, the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka follows Western tradition: but dig deeper and the hotel has a very Japanese heart. All the rooms nod to minimalist Japanese design, and then there are the rather special ryokan-inspired Japanese suites with their own zen gardens, tatami mat and soaking tubs.




Convenience is another of the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka’s strongest cards: it’s connected to Canal City Hakata, a sprawling multi-level entertainment complex of shops, restaurants and – most notably – a fountain that hosts nightly light shows. It’s also a short walk to Hakata Station, the high-speed gateway to the gorgeous island of Kyushu. Within the hotel, the Club Olympus fitness centre comes with two indoor swimming pools, as well as a whirlpool, sauna and spa. Diners should check out The Market F restaurant, serving charcoal-grilled specialities straight from the open kitchen and grill, where diners can sit to watch the chefs in action; and Martini’s bar and Bar Fizz for unwinding with cocktails or a wee dram of Japanese whisky.
