It is a huge resort located on a hill with two buildings of rooms and a Palace with swimming pools, onsens, shops and other amusement facilities. They are connected by walkway and by regular hotel shuttle. Unfortunately, we stayed only one night and it was impossible to enjoy everything there.
Our room was in the Hon-kan building. It was a half Western and half Japanese style with wide array of windows, providing a fantastic view to overlook Beppu city and Beppu Bay. It was a little worn out when compared with the other building (Hana-kan) where we found the lobby and rooms were more modernised.
We visited the Acquabeat which was a indoor pool with a wave pool, super slides, cave and pools for kids. Our two kids were crazy for it. However we stayed in Saturday evening and it was very crowded. There were also the Aqua Garden amd Tanayu which are outdoor pool and onsen on the top floor with magificent view of the city. In the night time, there were decorations of different model animals and fairy tales characters with tens of thousands of brilliant colourful night bulbs.
The buffet dinner in Restaurant Seeds was excellent with very fresh sushimi, spider crab legs, high quality steaks and many other delicious food. This was one of the best buffet we have had in Japan.
May be the hotel was too big, we cannot find the quietness, warmth and caring to details feeling as in other Japan Onsen hotels. But it was a wonderful hotel that will keep you busy all the time.
