木々を感じて過ごすには最適な宿。ホテルに何を求めるかで評価が大きく異なると思う宿です。私は、超豪華ホテルが大好きなのですが、今回のプライオリティーは、目にジャングルが飛び込んでくる環境かつ予算を絞ることだったので、十分に楽しめました。 部屋からの景色が素晴らしく(木また木)、上質とは言えないタオルやシーツ類、バスルームの味気無さにも目をつぶれました。お天気はあいにくでしたが、ホテルの一日ツアーに参加し(ジャングルツアーとカヌーです。これがまたとても楽しかった)、十分に楽しめる滞在となりました。 レンタカーがないと夕飯をホテル外でとることは難しいと思います。連泊するなら、一日は西表島に入る前に用意した持込みで夜を過ごすが良いと思いました。 朝食は、和洋とそろっていました。大規模ホテルに比較すると、こじんまりですが、地元の食材と思われるものもあり、楽しめました。二連泊しましたが、おかずは毎朝異なっており、感心しました。なにしろ、私しか宿泊していなかったので、心苦しいほどの種類でした。 初めての西表島で、ジャングルを楽しむという目的以外何も考えていなかったのですが、この目的は十分に達成しました。オフシーズンのせいでしょうか、トレーニング中のスタッフが数名いたようで、対応がまだまだでしたが、成長を期待しております。 View from a room was so nice, trees, trees and trees. I love those views. Breakfast is good enough to enjoy, some breads, rice and miso soup with several local dishes as well as western foods. No shops within a walking distance. Hotel provides several tours to enjoy Iriomote nature and it worth to join.

The hotel looks like it used to be a hospital, it has the same look and feel of one.....The rooms and place itself is quite ok, its in the middle of no where, you only have one restaurant to eat at not much else to do. The most frustrating thing about this hotel and all places in the islands on... More

Painu Maya Resort is a bit far from either of the ferry ports of Iriomote Island, but worth staying. The hotel ground is spacious and you can enjoy a walk in their forest ground. Our room was on a beautiful creek and my mum looked very happy, saying that she would come back there one day. Free wifi is available... More

I stayed at this resort for two nights. The resort looks like it was built in the early 80s with cement walls, and linoleum floors in the hotel rooms and with no major remodeling. At JPY 23,700 p.n. (2 persons, exc breakfast), this is very pricey. Positives: - Pick up service at Ohara port. They will also drop you along... More

I visited this resort one night while in Iriomote-jima. It is always relaxing to spend a night at an onsen resort and after hearing that one was located in Iriomote-jima, of course I had to visit it. Now the resort itself is really nothing special. A typical 3-star Western-style hotel in Japan. The rooms were spacious and had all of... More
