Hinoki-yu Room at Hotel Okura Manila

The Hinoki-yu Room at Hotel Okura Manila is a hotel guestroom that features a wooden soaking tub made of Japanese cypress (Hinoki). The Hinoki-yu Room measures 46 square meters and has a ryokan style interior that combines classical and contemporary Japanese design elements of wood and stone.

The room is equipped with a 55-inch LED flat-screen TV with a Harman Kardon SABRE SB35 Wireless Soundbar & Subwoofer. The TV has international cable channels and is pre-installed with Youtube, Netflix, and Spotify. You can likewise connect a Google Chromecast or a Nintendo Switch via HDMI.

The Hinoki-yu Room is available in a king-size bed or twin beds configuration. You can set the mood inside the bedroom by adjusting the lights through the bedside touchscreen control panel. Desk-level power outlets with universal socket are also conveniently available next to the bed.

The seating area is furnished with a two-seater lounge sofa and a multi-purpose table that can serve as a workstation or as a dining table. There is a mini zen garden between the seating area and the shoji sliding window panels.

The minibar cabinet stands next to the lounge sofa. It houses a mini-refrigerator and a Nespresso machine. Complimentary bottled water, coffee capsules, and Harney & Sons branded tea bags are provided and replenished daily. You may also ask for additional amenities anytime during your stay.

A shoji sliding door separates the seating area and the bathroom. I love the black volcanic stone wall that creates a private indoor onsen feel. The highlight of the bathroom is of course the Hinoki soaking tub.

When filled with hot water, the Hinoki cypress wood will release its aroma to the water and the bathroom will be filled with its fragrance. Here are some important reminders when using the Hinoki soaking tub:

  • Take a warm shower first before using the tub.
  • The Hinoki soaking tub must only be filled with water.
  • Do not use bath salts, body wash, shower gel, or bath bombs as these will damage the Hinoki cypress wood.
  • Do not drink any beverage while using the tub other than water.
  • Do not eat while using the tub.
  • Do not use the tub if you have heart disease or high blood pressure.

Make sure that you can tolerate the temperature of the water, somewhere between 37°C and 40°C. I suggest you fill the tub with 1/3 hot water and 2/3 cold water.

Guests staying in a Hinoki-yu Room are provided with in-house branded bath amenities. I love the ylang-ylang fragrance of the toiletries which is very similar to the Balance line of bath amenities by Aromatherapy Associates (available in Hotel Okura Manila suite categories).

The Hinoki-yu Room has an open shelf closet cabinet with plenty of space to hang clothes. In addition to bathrobes, Hotel Okura Manila also provides two sets of yukata (lounging kimono) which you can wear while relaxing in your room.
