In his speech after the ritual, Kazushi Motoya, President and CEO of APA Group, said, “2.43 million people visited Tottori’s tourist attractions, such as the Tottori Sand Dunes and Inaba Onsen Village, two years ago. We believe there is still a lot of potential.This hotel is close to the station and will also have a large public bath, so we would like you to combine it with existing nearby hotels that have undergone renovations to heal the fatigue of your travels.In terms of the Chugoku-Shikoku area, the current In Hiroshima, two hotels are under construction and a new tower hotel is scheduled for construction in the future.We will continue to move forward with new projects by keeping an eye on demographic trends and considering selection and concentration, such as how to concentrate resources. I want to do that.”
APA Hotel – Tottori Ekimae – is the first newly built hotel in Tottori City. The hotel is located in front of Tottori Station, a 3-minute walk from Tottori Station on the San’in Main Line and Inbi Line, making it an ideal location for business and leisure needs.
The structure and scale will be a steel frame building with 8 floors above ground, 205 rooms in total, and a restaurant and public bath. The building will be designed by Nikki Sekkei Co., Ltd., constructed by Kumagai Gumi Co., Ltd., and supervised by Tsujimoto Design Office, and is scheduled to open in October 2025.
Currently in Tottori Prefecture, we are operating APA Hotel -Tottori Ekimae Minami- (*Scheduled to change hotel name from APA Hotel -Tottori Ekimae- on April 23, 2024) (Tottori City, 143 rooms in total, opening on March 25, 2008). As sales were strong, plans for a second building were moved forward. Including this project, there will be a total of 2 buildings with 348 rooms, and we are also considering using the two buildings in conjunction with mutual hotel check-in systems and large public baths. We will continue to strengthen the expansion of our APA hotel network in areas where demand is expected nationwide, while proactively pursuing a dominant strategy based on improvements in hotel management and personnel efficiency.
