Stayed for 3 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The hotel staff were helpful, the meals - morning and evening - had a good selection and the location was very picturesque. My only complaint was the one nearly always encounter at hotels in Japan..... LACK OF non-Japanese Satellite TV channels. Surely getting a BBC/CNN news package wouldn't break the... More

This is the only place in Iriomote which I can recommend especially for Ladies. The room is decorated with the chic furnitures and fabrics. I enjoyed the healthy morning buffet. The hotel also offers various types of outdoor activities which their guests enjoy regardless of age.

Stayed for 3 nights (wish could stay more). The weather was a bit colder than I expected so I couldn't do some activities that I originally had planned (e.g. snorkeling). Nevertheless, the hotel, its staff and the island's residents have made this trip a great and memorable experience. Rooms - love the daybed and balcony. Stayed on the top floor... More

We stayed at this resort at the end of our Okinawan island hopping adventure, and were pleased to say that the resort met our expectations. Our spacious double room had a balcony with a lovely sea view. The bathroom had a shower space with a bathtub next to it. Shower pressure was strong and had a consistent flow of warm... More

We came here with my fiancée just after Golden week. I wish we could stay more than 3 days. The food was pricey but extremely delicious. We enjoyed snorkeling (not at the hotel beach, it is beautiful and nice to relax but does not have corals) and saw the famous star sand beach. We went there by bicycles. Unfortunately, no... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, with lovely views of the beach only a few steps from the hotel. The staff is friendly and easy to talk to. They speak some English if necessary, and careful, easy to understand Japanese for foreign guests. However, Iriomote itself is very remote, and you should put money in your budget for a rental car,... More

The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The room also had a balcony with a sea view. We stayed at the hotel during low season and it was a bit empty but nice. There was plenty to choose from at the breakfast buffet and it was fresh and tasty. The hotel offered many different excursions like trekking, snorkeling and canoeing.... More

• Our modern-Asian-style room (a bit of Bali, a bit of Japan) felt quite luxurious to me, as I'm more used to budget accommodation when I travel. My wife and I loved the atmosphere. • The buffet breakfast (2100 yen) was as good as you can expect in such a remote location. • The stunning sandy beach in front of... More

This is supposedly a resort, but does not feel like it. Yes, the building is big, but the way it is planned limits the exposure to other guests to the minimum. Your meat other guests in the reception area and in the restaurant, but the rooms are sound-proof and well-spaced, so you're likely to meet your closest neighbours only, and... More
