I didn't know this hotel chain and it has been a really pleasant surprise! I can without doubt this hotel it's the best we visited during our stay in Japan.

What a great Japanese experience we had here. We decided on a special treat and booked a Japanese-Style Deluxe Room which has two spacious rooms, an indoor balcony and two bathrooms. Futons were set up every evening. The booking comes with a yummy Japanese Style breakfast and we enjoyed various kinds of fish, miso soup, rice, salads... My kids are... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in late September, - which is out of season for this resort, and we were hoping for good weather, and we were not disappointed. Even for late September, the weather was hot. The only down side is that the town itself was very quiet, with only a handful of restaurants open and the town’s only... More

I stayed there with my family for 2 nights. All staffs are very friendly and showed typical Japanese hospitality. The reception manages to communicate adequately in English and are very helpful. When asked about bus trips, her immediately printed out the whole schedule and gave directions. Other staffs could barely speak English but were very sincere. We were in half... More

Nicely maintained property situated in a central location yet on a gorgeous beach. We stayed on the top floor and had nice in room dinner when... More

I recently spent the weekend at this lovely hotel after a business trip in Japan. Upon check in, I was greeted warmly, and then escorted to a lovely Japanese style room with a view of the lovely beach. I was the only westerner in the hotel, and each and every of the hotel's wonderful staff, looked out for me, treating... More

Once we enter the room, we just simply say "Wow" to the spectacular view of the beach outside the big windows. The white sandy beach with the slide facilities in the nearby park has occupied our two young kids for the whole afternoon. It is very convenient that we can access the beach through a private path of hotel. The... More

This is one of few De Luxe hotels which welcome solo tourist in Nanki Shirahama. My room was spacious with ocean view. The two large baths are both gorgeous,although oceam view bath,which is better of the two, is reserved for ladies in the afternoon and at night. Men can use it only in the morning.

I was several time at this hotel. It is about 5 minutes by taxi from Shirakhama airport. It is traditional japan hotel. You must put kimono and japan shoes inside hotel. Breakfest, dinner (without drinks) and hot springs are included. Rooms are without bed, only tatamy and mattress. But every room equipped with air condition, TV, modern toilet and bath.... More
