TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FTC Hotel Kaihatsu Co., Ltd. and Okura
Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd.
, a subsidiary of Hotel
Okura Co., Ltd.
, jointly announced today that they will open the
rebranded Hotel Nikko Oita Oasis Tower in southern Japan this December.
The rebranded hotel will be operated under Nikko Hotels International.

Hotel Nikko Oita Oasis Tower, currently operating as Oita Oasis Tower
Hotel, is the tallest building in Oita Prefecture on Kyushu island, the
southernmost of Japan’s four main islands. The hotel offers panoramic
views of downtown Oita, Beppu Bay, Kunisaki Peninsula and Mt. Yufu. It
is an eight-minute walk from JR Oita Station and within easy reach of
the Oita Prefectural Art Museum. The property is part of Oasis Hiroba
21, a commercial complex that also houses the Oita Prefectural Culture
Center and the local bureau of Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK). The
rebranded hotel will build on its well-established reputation as one of
Oita’s most beloved guesthouses.

Hotel Nikko Oita Oasis Tower will proudly join Okura Nikko Hotels, which
currently boasts 72 hotels and 12 branches across the world. The newly
rebranded hotel is expected to benefit significantly by joining this
international network, including Okura Nikko Hotel Management’s robust
centralized reservation network to benefit visitors worldwide. For
example, reservations for Hotel Nikko Oita Oasis Tower can be made
through a central reservation office available in eight languages.

As Okura Nikko Hotel Management’s ninth hotel property on Kyushu island,
the rebranded hotel will also play a vital role in strengthening the
group’s business network and improving visitor convenience.

Hotel Nikko Oita Oasis Tower will hereafter undergo partial renovation
as a part of its transition to offer Nikko Hotels International’s style
of hospitality. The rebranded hotel will honor the network’s friendly,
sophisticated culture to cement its status as Oita’s ideal venue.
