The purpose of our stay this time was to spend time by the Garden Pool, enjoying the resort feeling.
The room was the same type as our last stay except for a few changes, such as having a full length mirror on the closet door and a Bose speaker with great sound. We really enjoyed this room. Although it was a 36 square meter room, it was elegantly arranged to feel comfortable.
Upon opening the bathroom blinds, we could sense the openness looking through the room, viewing the greenery of the Japanese Garden.
Tea time had already begun, so we had scones, raspberry filled ”Boules de Berlin” doughnuts by Pierre Hermé Paris (Executive House Zen only), etc.
What a bliss! Raisin and chocolate chip filled scones topped with clotted cream and raspberry jam.
Such a perfect combination! Doughnuts and raspberry. Indeed it is Pierre Hermé Paris!
The lounge is a harmony of Japanese and Modern design, giving it its calm and relaxing atmosphere.
We were blessed with great weather as the end of the rainy season was announced on this exact day, so we were able to enjoy the pool to the fullest.
At cocktail time, we had a pomegranate based Shirley Temple and a cassis based Kir Royale (both non-alcoholic).
Isn’t the sky reflected off the glass table top beautiful!
The canapes I liked was the asparagus wrapped with raw ham.
Here is what my husband had. It looks like cheese is his favorite.
After some time, the sun started setting, creating an impressive reflection off the “Main” windows.
This time, perhaps because of our swim in the pool, we were so hungry that we decided to have dinner at KATO’S DINING & BAR.
I had the unfrozen raw maguro, and raw squid which was so soft that it was like it melted in my mouth.
My husband had Japanese style beef stew using beef from Japanese Black Cattle.
The KATO’S DINING & BAR is the place to enjoy authentic “Kaiseki” dishes at a reasonable price.
Upon returning to Executive House Zen, we went to the lounge for a night cap with dry fruit, chocolate, and nuts, and returned to our room.
We are thankful that we could relax in the flow of time, enjoying the resort feeling to the fullest. It was such a wonderful day.
