It was an emotion staying at Benesse House. It is much more than an hotel; you are enbedded in a modern architecture where everything reflects the concept of art. The landascape and art installations make it unique.

The room is beautiful with lovely views over the sea. We stayed in the museum which was magical as you can wander around the artwork very much alone. We arrived on a sunday night and missed that everything was closed on mondays! The staff doesn't speak much english and at times it was difficult to get any help. Breakfast isn't... More

A trip to Naoshima is a voyage into Art (capital A) (I will not even try to describe, every person will no doubt have a very unique experience). Stayed at both the Museum and the Park, both are fabulous.

The hotel has been around a while now, but I think on balance the understated interior is holding up well. It's nice to stay in the Museum and have access without having to share with the public. The staff were very helpful and the shuttle was good to get around in, but it can fill up quite quickly. However, having... More

The hotel is fully integrated with the museum, making the experience unique. The views from the rooms are gorgeous of the coast, sea and off-shore islands. The rooms are a bit spartan for the price but comfortable and clean. The totall experience though of Naoshima island cannot be stressed enough. The food in the Benesse House is at the Issen... More

Fantastic museums! Wonderful accommodation! Amazing food! This was a relaxing and quiet environment with great access to Benesse House courtesy bus. We really enjoyed our experience at Benesse House. Naoshima Island has some amazing art museums. This is the one of the highlights of our trip to Japan and also a 'must see' when visiting Japan. Kaye, Ken, Oliver, Blair... More

It was such a cool experience to stay in such a unique and special environment, both the built and natural environment. We arrived in the morning via ferry from Uno Port, there is a Benesse shuttle stop at the terminal which will take you to your building. We stayed at Oval which shares a reception with Benesse House Museum. I... More

The Naoshima art site is an incredible concept, and it is masterfully executed. It's a mix of art and architecture - in a beautiful setting - that is unique in this world. Particularly the Chichu Museum and Teshima Art Musuem are not to be missed. Part of the art site are 4 hotels called Benesse House: Park, Beach, Museum and... More
