It is our pleasure to write this comment to express our appreciation to all staff members of the Hotel for their professional and hearty services that they provided during our stay last week from 27 to 30 July 2016. Our exploration journey to the heavenly island of Iriomote could not have been that enjoyable without the top-notch services from the... More

My family and I stayed in the end of July, for 3 nights. Many outdoor activity course enjoyable. We enjoyed snorkeling in the first day, scuba diving in the second day, trekking and kayaking tour in the third day, and yoga exercise, and swimming in the forth day. A delicious, casual restaurant is near hotel in 5 minutes walk distance.... More

Iriomote is quite remote and there are few places to stay on the island. When westerners go to tropical islands they have a set of expectations that Nirikanai will not necessarily meet. We loved the place and stayed 6 nights. But we are not regular resort going western tourists. The hotel met us at the ferry wharf and transferred us.... More

This place is incredible. A private, pristine and rubbish free beach. Incredibly cheap rates of the quality of the accommodation, facility and food. Breakfast was amazing and the staff were so kind. This is not a large scale resort. It is low key and very intimate and stylish. Most resorts will break the bank but not this place. We were... More

Highly recommending this hotel, especially for people wants to get out of urban ordinary time and wants to get convenient stay such as high class cuisine and various offers like daily goods at inside shops available, unique hotel own tour and resort stay! In fact such hotel is not available in Iriomote , except this Hoshino(^-^)v

After travelling around Honshu for 11 days, I was really looking forward to 5 relaxing days in tropical Iriomote. Perhaps having been fortunate to travel around Asia previously, I was disappointed by the standard of this "resort". The hotel is absolutely fine in that the food is very good, staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are good although... More

This really is the bet place to stay on Iriomote if you want "luxury" but there is really limited internet connection nothing in the rooms and only available in the lobby but it crashes when too many people use it. Great food though the evening buffet is expensive compared to the local restaurants. A bar area with comfortable seats is... More

Chose this resort hotel as it is part of the Hoshino group. Luckily the Uehara port was open on December 24 so just an easy 10 minute transfer to the hotel by free shuttle. Everyone is checked in individually with a welcome drink and escorted to your room. Lovely seaview from room 5432 on the top floor.The room was large... More

Went in late September with pregnant wife and 2 year old son for 2 nights. We also stayed at Hosino resort on Taketomi island but this has a VERY different feel. You come here for the nature so you should temper your expectation with regards to the creepy crawlies. It's still nice with high standards and great service but bigger... More

We stayed at Hoshino Nirakanai for 6 nights in June 2014. The rooms are nice, they are not "amazing" with a few details like major scuff marks on the walls and cracks. A few more pictures on the large blank walls would have been nice but overall it was more than "just a room" but no wow factor. I've stayed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With no airstrip and a lone coastal road, the island of Iriomote is as remote a place as one finds in Japan. Even so, its rivers, waterfalls, mangrove swamps, and long curving beaches can be explored in a host of outdoor programs here at the island's largest resort, promising fun and thrills for adventure-seekers of all ages. ... more   less
