It is SO hard to find real luxury in terms of accommodation in the Okinawa Islands. However Hoshinoya on Taketomi Island is far up there beyond the rest. We loved our honeymoon stay at Hoshinoya. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. It was great to have you own space in a traditional... More

We only stayed a night but what a wonderful 1.5 days we had. Disappointed we couldn't get a spa treatment but will plan better. The rooms are beautiful, well kept and private. I would recommend that you ask for a higher table and chairs if you have back problems. The pool area is like Mad Men; very retro pool, with... More

At first glance, Okinawa appears to have all the makings of a remarkable, subtropical travel experience -- clear waters, top-notch scuba diving, endless beach, UNESCO World Heritage sites and delicious local cuisine.

the architecture of this hotel has been so well considered and so well thought out it is like reading a poem. Discovering hidden details and symbolism in all shapes and form.

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.
