The hotel/resort was built within a conversation area. The rooms were spacious and very new and clean. Being in a national park, you are surrounding by all sorts of birds and wildlife. The resort itself is stunning. Service was excellent all round. Would recommend taking their bicycles out to the small villages during the day. Hardly any one goes out... More

The hotel was marvelously designed with a large heated pool in the center. The hotel location was a bit inconvenient - it was somewhat far from the major beaches and the town center. We rented bicycles (reservation req'd - just call the front desk in advance) to go around the island. It only took us 2-3 hrs to see the... More

Hoshinoya Resorts have gone to tremendous lengths to recreate a typical Okinawan/Taketomi village of almost 50 villas, fitted out in luxurious Japanese style. I must say that we particularly enjoyed relaxing in the villa and using the pool, including my daughter (almost 4) which is one of the primary objectives of staying in a resort such as this. The daily... More

We stayed there for two nights in June, 2013. The hotel is located in Taketomi Island of Okinawa. Facilities: The villa is built according to the traditional houses on that island. A lot of glassed doors that can open up and he breeze can pass through the villa, but you do not have privacy as the fense is too low... More

We really enjoyed the experience in this japanese style hotel. Beautiful little houses in Taketomi style, now it's possible also to dine at the village taking the resort bus (last one back at 21:30) and we had no problem with reservation at restaurant (quite expensive but very good) or dining in the room. With the free bicycle you can go... More

Taketomi island has always been one of the places to visit near Ishigaki. My GF and I stayed there the second time spending two nights, enjoying its beautiful landscape, tranquility and great food. Hoshinoya, as it's known to be the best "ryokan" chain in Japan, does live up to its standards when it comes to service and quality. The villa... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2012. We enjoyed our stay, but felt the price was too high for what we received in comparison with other top hotels (ryokan) in Japan and the Aman resorts elsewhere. I think a few additional touches would make it feel more worthwhile and special. Our villa was lovely and spacious. At first... More
