There's spa treatments at Amour Spa & Suites, aesthetic treatments at Salon de Esthe, nail care at Nail Salon Naila, and Taiwanese massage and acupressure at Total Therapy, each lasting from 30 to 90 minutes.

After the treatment, a healthy, low-calorie and well-balanced lunch can be chosen from the European, Asian or Japanese menus at Coffee Shop Satsuki, Trader Vic's or Kato's Dining & Bar.

Plan prices range from ¥8,000 to ¥14,500. (Lunch and treatment services can be enjoyed on separate dates.)

The hotel is a three-minute walk from Akasaka-Mitsuke or Nagata-cho stations.

For more information or reservations, call (03) 3265-1111.

Relaxing Tokyo weekend breaks

The last thing you want on a weekend away is to have to rush, so the Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel in Shibuya has put together a "Tokyo Weekend Journey" accommodation plan that cuts you a little bit of slack.

The plan extends checkout time to 5 p.m. so that guests can leave their luggage in their room and go sightseeing or shopping in the city, or spend a full-day relaxing at the hotel. The plan includes breakfast at a hotel restaurant or in your room, and free access to the hotel's fitness club. For those who want to make the most of the hotel's location in Shibuya, which is often called "cinema town," a pair of complimentary movie tickets for Tokyu group cinemas is included in the plan.

Twin or double rooms on the Sky View Floor (25th to 32nd floors) are used for the plan at the special price of ¥19,500 per person (double occupancy). The plan is available on Saturdays, Sundays, national holidays and the days before national holidays, through Sept. 28.

The hotel is a five-minute walk from Shibuya Station.

For more information, call (03) 3476-3000.
