The Asian Suite: An authentic yet modern Japanese haven

While seven of the eight suites at Hotel Rangá are themed after the seven continents, some of the suites are primarily influenced by particular countries. Hotelier Friðrik Pálsson says China was an alluring choice for the Asian Suite but he also found Japan tempting since he had spent some time in the country. The suite became more and more Japanese during the design process until it eventually it became the haven it is today.


We love little details like these decorations in our Japanese suite.

“It’s probably the most authentic suite of them all,” Friðrik says. “We particularly enjoyed making the ceiling, which is based on a 4000-year-old design that is still used in Japan today.”


The Asian Suite is the perfect place for those looking for a bit of luxury with an East-Asian minimalist touch.

The suite also features traditional Tatami mats and rice paper doors. There’s a dining table based on the Japanese kotatsu tables and the bathroom is also built under a modern Japanese influence.

The only truly non-Japanese element is the bed, which replaces the more traditional shiki futon for a more luxurious night’s sleep. Our Japanese guests have commented that the suite is in fact very authentic except for the size as a room of this size would typically house a family of four in Japan.
