“Perfect place to enjoy a peaceful break with breath-taking view :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011

Was staying in this holidays in last year for 3 days / 2 nights, i booked at special rate during their non peak season for 50% off their regular rate. Would suggest you to try book as early as possible cos they offer early bird discount too.

Since its located in Kumejima, an island 3 hours ferry trip away from main Okinawa island, there are only 3 main hotels (the rest are motel type of accommodation), I picked Cypress for its view and the real thing is as authentic as it looks on photos in their website. The ocean view of my room is superb! The room is spacious, tidy and housekeeper did a good job on daily basis. Breakfast options is limited but much better than another 5 star hotel i stayed in the Okinawa main island so i am not gonna complaint. Hotel restaurant offers limited dinner menu but its good for value with the nice seaview and nicely quiet environment.

The swimming pool is just the right size and with the superb view, lovely location to look at sunset. The beach in front of the hotel however is not fit for swimming at all cos its surrounded by coral rocks. Make sure you dont walk on this beach with bare feet cos you will definitely get hurt, you'll see lots of lovely cute crabs when the tide is gone in late afternoon.

The hotel is quite near the pier but if you are not driving it will be lots of hassle to get yourself there or out of the hotel. transportation would be a problem if you dont drive or plan to drive, as you cant go anywhere without a car in Kumejima. There is not much public transport and very few taxi around. Try OTS car rental cos they are cheap and reliable.

communication with hotel staff is tough too cos they speak almost no english, i was only using pictures and simple japanese vocabulary to communicate with them but it was not helping much...

One thing you got to take note is that when i switched on my blackberry there was completely NO reception, which is good if you dont want anyone to email you :) the hotel room has internet connection provided with LAN, its quite smooth and not too slow, but do remember to bring an adaptor / socket for your charger because there wont be anything the hotel can help you.

overall i did enjoy my stay at Cypress so much, if i have the plan to do another real peaceful break i would for sure come here again, its such a lovely hotel and the view is simply one of the best.

again, Kumejima is a real small island, dont expect anything you have in big cities will be found in here for sure. Transportation, communication and entertainment are the last thing you would get in this island, if you have trouble with any of these, not the problem of the hotel anyway.

The Hotel can arrange day trip to Hatenohama 終端之濱, its the place you dont wanna miss if you are spending time in Kumejima.
