Ugenta is nestled in the hills by a stream of waterfalls. Ugenta is utterly peaceful and scenic. We stayed in the Japanese style suite which is spacious and stunning in its design. The furniture is created by George Nakishima and the entire space is beautiful, a design lovers dream. The meals (breakfast and dinner are included) are served in the room, and they are so amazing - certainly some of the best we had in Japan. Each meal is prepared with so much care and with top quality ingredients, and imagination. And the service couldn't be more incredible and exemplary. We visited on our honeymoon and they presented us with personalized gifts and a special cake upon arrival. At every turn, the staff cares deeply for you, from immaculate presentation of the meals to anticipating your needs. We came in from a walk one day and without us calling down, half an hour later they brought tea to us. At every turn, Ugenta made us feel cared for and serene. My time here has restored me, delighted me, and made such a good impression upon, I cannot emphasize enough how positive and exemplary and gorgeous and deeply caring a place Ugenta is!
Ugenta is nestled in quiet hills by a happy stream of waterfalls. We stayed in the Japanese style suite which is very beautiful and designed by George Nakishima. The meals (breakfast and dinner are included) are served in-room, and they are impeccable. Each meal is prepared with thought and detail and insanely fresh produce. But what really recommends Ugenta is the service. We visited on our honeymoon and they presented us with personalized gifts for each of us and a special treat upon arrival. At every turn, the staff cares their utmost for you, from carefully tending to your meals, your room, and your schedule. They even came into Kyoto and picked us up when we couldn’t figure out the train! Our stay was restorative, and so excellent that I can’t stop talking about how much I love the space, food, and service here. I will also add, I saw a few reviews mention that the staff may not speak English, but I want to deeply emphasize how not an issue that is. They have pocket translators and a deep desire to communicate with you as clearly and easily as possible. With Google Translate easily accessible and the pocket translators, communication was zero issue for us - and the depth of care Ugenta offers its guests transcends any language anyway. My time at Ugenta was incredible.
If you can save up some bucks, I HIGHLY recommend booking a night in a ryokan. We stayed at this one, which was amazing (but immensely expensive even with my friend's work discount, hence one night only). Absolutely worth it though to relax in the mountains, dress in a kimono, sit in a hot bath outside, and have a traditional Japanese while sitting over a waterfall. They also brew their own magical beer (the water is used from their own shrine's waterfall and only gathered on full moons -- and it is one of the best beers I've ever had).
