Note: We were given a complimentary stay at this hotel
The festive season has begun and we were very excited to start it at InterContinental Osaka. The sprawling five star property is located at the heart of the Umeda district surrounded by shopping malls, local eateries, and easy transport links to explore the city and beyond. We checked in at their sky high lobby boasting stunning city views, a cozy bar and lounge, and Christmas decor to ring in the month of December.
For our family of four we booked the spacious and modern Two Bedroom Residence which incorporated a long dining table and comfortable lounge area as well as a fully equipped kitchen. The highlight was the incredible panoramic view and amazing service throughout our stay. InterContinental Osaka also boasts a state of the art fitness centre and spa as well as indoor swimming pool and sauna. An ideal way to unwind after a day of sightseeing.
We loved the dining options and enjoyed breakfast and dinner at the elegant and delicious NOKA. The five star brand is an ideal choice if you are craving a personalised stay. Staff were always on hand to assist with reservations, booking transport, or just making child friendly recommendations. They ensured our family felt right at home and even treated us to seasonal specialities. Osaka is a great choice for travelling with children in Japan and we highly recommend InterContinental for the best mix of luxury and comfort in an amazing location.
NOKA Roast & Grill
NOKA Roast & Grill, located in the luxurious InterContinental Osaka, is an ideal spot for delicious fare, city views, and impeccable service. We loved the elegant space, intimate dining room, and mouthwatering menu featuring local produce. We started with a selection of salads and appetisers from the buffet including delectable pates and charcuterie, tender roast beef, and vibrant local vegetables and pickles. The main course was served a la carte and included a selection of fresh seafood and juicy cuts of meat. We highly recommend the flavourful, perfectly grilled Sea Bass with Chorizo and Salsa Verde, indulgent Pork Belly Confit with Barbecued Baby Back Ribs, and insanely tender and juicy US Beef Tenderloin & Kuroge Wagyu Sirloin Combination with Seasonal Vegetables and Truffle Madeira Sauce. Make sure to save room for dessert and sample a slice of the light and airy Souffle Cheesecake. Pair your dining experience with the free flow wine pairing for a perfect date night.
