This Japanese Hotel Lets You Sing Karaoke in a Hot Tub

The ultimate setting for a 'Rubber Ducky' rendition.

If you’re a committed singer-in-the-shower, here's one way to relax your inhibitions during a karaoke session. At Tokyo's Lovenet, there’s a karaoke room that comes with a hot tub, known as the ‘Aqua Suite’.

For ¥25,000 per hour (around AU$261) up to six people can jump in the water at any one time and find out how what a little heat does for their vocal abilities. There’s space in the room for an extra eight singers. And if you forget your swimmers, you can buy some on the spot for ¥1,000 (that’s about AU$10).

The Aqua Suite is but one of 33 themed rooms in the Lovenet. For Stanley Kubrick fans, there’s the Heaven room, where the white-as-white interior and underground crystals bring to mind A Clockwork Orange’s Milk Bar. For something more intimate, reserve the cosy Morocco Suite, which accommodates only two people. Then there’s the brightly coloured Candy Room.

Karaoke in a hot tub hit the UK in 2013, when the Hot Tub Cinema folks, who have been up and running since 2012, decided to extend their warm, watery formula beyond movies. However, rather than setting up a room, they run their hot tub events as one-off, ticketed shindigs.

Find the Aqua Suite at Lovenet, 3F-4F Hotel Ibis, 7-14-4 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Open Monday to Saturday 6pm-5am, closed Sunday and holidays. To book phone +813 5771 5511.
