If you’re looking for stunning Sicilian escapes in Season 2 of The White Lotus, you’re not alone.
After two scenic seasons — the first in Hawaii and the second in Sicily — fans of the hit series are speculating where the third part of the comedy-drama anthology will take place.
And it seems that a certain city has popped up after a celebrity interview.
An unlikely source, to be sure, but Jackass star Johnny Knoxville recently spoke to Vulture about the hit drama and his friendship with the show’s creator, Mike White.
During the chat, Johnny was talking about the cancellation of his Hulu sitcom Reboot when the topic of The White Lotus season 3 came up by accident.
Johnny said, “He [Mike] and I had been to Tokyo together. I think there’s this… oh, I’m not saying. Maybe I’ll call him again as soon as this is over.”
The Japanese city would also fit into Mike White’s earlier discussions telling encounter“The first season we focused on money and the second season is about sex and I think maybe the third season would be kind of a satirical and funny approach to death in Eastern religion and spirituality.”
With Tokyo possibly on the horizon (although there’s no guarantee or official confirmation), which lavish and mysterious hotel would make the series’ setting?
We’ve rounded up five that we think would be perfect.
Located in the city’s financial district (a nod to the theme of greed in the first season), Aman is all about defending balance and harmony with nature. All rooms are modeled after Japanese ryokan inns and feature traditional touches such as calligraphy scrolls, tatami rugs and earthy ceramics.
This eight-story skyscraper is serene and elegant – with floor-to-ceiling windows offering expansive views of Tokyo – the perfect dramatic backdrop for a crime thriller.
Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo in Otemachi
We cannot ignore the elephant in the room. The first two seasons of The White Lotus were filmed at the Four Seasons Resorts in Hawaii and Sicily, so there’s likely to be one more before the next one.
The Otemachi Hotel in Tokyo is the sister hotel of the long-established Hotel Marunouchi near Tokyo Station. West-facing rooms offer views of the Imperial Gardens and Mount Fuji.
Occupying the entire building, this stunning hotel is the city’s first luxury ryokan, combining contemporary design with traditional influences.
In terms of layout, the 84 rooms are divided into groups of six over 14 floors – each resembling a self-contained ryokan inn with its own Ochanoma lounge. Here you will find a shared wooden table to taste seasonal sake.
This sophisticated high-rise hotel exudes the sophistication of White Lotus. Located between the 30th and 36th floors, it is the ultimate aerial retreat with sweeping views of the city.
Designer Ryu Kosaka nails the seductive vibe of the nightlife with the interior – perfect for romance, deceit and drama.
This hotel’s Premier Suite offers 180-degree views of Tokyo and is the perfect backdrop for The White Lotus.
Be truly pampered at this lavish venue, with a serene spa (with signature treatments), pampering afternoon tea and an impressive cocktail menu, plus impeccable service with a green Rolls-Royce airport pick-up and smiling bellboys from head to toe – toe white .
