This place is amazing, we definitely recomend it! The couple who runs the place are very serviceminded, helpful and sweet. The cottages are beautiful with tasteful decoration. Breakfast is delicious with lots of fruit. There is a small pool outside which is awsome on a warm day. Strongly recomend Sapunaya and Taketomi Island.

After looking around for places to stay in Taketomi we came across Sapunaya and it was the best choice we could have made. We'd just spent 3 weeks around Okinawa and this was our last stop before home. What a perfect way to end the trip! Fantastic room, dip pool, amazing breakfasts and out hosts could not have been more... More

I was very pleased to have found this minshuku (guest house) on Trip Advisor and immediately knew I wanted to stay there. I was there for three nights and it was wonderful! The hosts could not have been kinder, the breakfasts more delicious and the accomodations more comfortable. There is nothing to do on the island but everyday was filled... More

Sapunaya is a beautiful, tiny B&B, with 3 rooms around a small central courtyard, with a little plunge pool. The decor is very luxurious - we were in the deluxe room - and the room was large with good aircon and a big bathroom with a whirlpool bathtub! Spotlessly clean and a comfy western bed; only slightly weird thing was... More

For the hotel itself I can just confirm the mostly positive feedback of the other reviewers. But...we found a kitten literally starving and asked some milk or anything similar to feed him. The answer by Sapunaya staff and owner was "we do not like cats, there are too many of them on the island, so we won't provide you with... More

We are very lonely feelings. We prepared the suite at a price of the standard room for you. It is because it is a honeymoon. Even if you soil a bed, you have no language. We still bore. Furthermore, you made the stray cat stay without notice. The room cannot perform stay of a cat. We asked you for returning... More

Stop searching: you cannot find a better place in Taketomi (and in all the Okinawa islands...)! I love everything there: rooms (just three + one in a separate house) are spotless and well designed, breakfast amazing with fresh tropical juice and fruits every day, the garden perfect for relaxation (they even have a small swimming pool where you can cool...

Sapunaya is an excellent, luxurious but affordable little B&B on the beautiful, quiet remote island of Taketomi in Okinawa prefecture. Taketomi is the perfect getaway destination from the crowd, noise and rush of everyday life, and staying at Sapunaya has made our trip extra rewarding. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast - assortment of fresh fruit, delicious scrambled eggs with bread... More
