We loved our high level room at 8 floor with a gorgeous panoramic bay view. Being a picky eater, my husband was impressed by the spread of the dining buffet. We were treated both visually with an impressive presentation and the palate with very good quality food.

The onsen facilities are also equally impressive with no less than two large bathing areas, one outdoors and indoors. You do not need to bring your own room towels to the onsen as they provide ample supplies. Having been to several onsen hotels this is one of the best ones we have visited as the amenities provided are excellent coupled with a good spread of skin care products to put on after the onsen.

We are already planning to come back for a longer stay to enjoy the full fledged facilties of the hotel.

Room tip: You do not need bring your room towels to the onsen as they provide ample supply of towels at the onsen .

We were very glad that you come here.
We have 172 rooms and all rooms face to the sea.
The view from the high floor is very great.
2 years ago, 2016, the buffet restaurant was redecorated. About 100 kinds of dishes are displayed every dinner and breakfast.
3 years ago, the hot spring was remodeled too.
We have two kinds of bath, inside and outside.
The depth of the outside onsen is 120cm, so you can take a bath while standing.
There are towels in the locker room, so you don't have to bring them.
We wish you come here again. We are looking forward to seeing you.

Check-in and general service was friendly and prompt. It is a huge hotel, so there are many tour groups and guests. The room is huge and clean. Besides two beds, there is a couch, coffee table and a balcony. The bathroom even provides cleansing milk, facial wash etc.

The location is a bit inconvenient, it is on top of a hill. About 10 minutes walk to the nearest public bus stop. We made the mistake of not getting the room plus dinner deal. There are only 2 restaurants in the hotel, one Japanese, one international buffet. The Japanese restaurant doesn't accept walk-in, and the dinner buffet cost 6,000 yen per person. Luckily, we brought some bread and instant noodles. So please bring cup noodles and other foods, just in case! Alternatively, have dinner in the town area and take a cab back to the hotel.

The hotel has an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and hot baths. I liked the outdoor bath, it is surrounded by trees. Very serene environment. After the hot bath, you can enjoy chilled cassis drink, green tea etc, at the waiting area.

Breakfast was sumptuous. Plenty of Japanese and western choices. The food tastes fresh and good too. But the breakfast buffet is very crowded, so be prepared to wait in line for the hot dishes. It was a nice stay in general.

Room tip: High floor, facing the sea.

Thank you very much for coming to our Shirahama Coganoi Resort & Spa this time.
All of our rooms are ocean view and the view is wonderful. We can overlook Tanabe Bay in the day time, and illuminations light up in the evening.
The public bath also makes us relax, and you can have an experience of extraordinary space.
Please relax in the living lounge where 3 kinds of drink were prepared after taking a bath.
Our buffet-style meal has abundant menus.
We are looking forward to see you again.

Came here for 1 night with family. Check in was excellent. Smooth and the hotel took care of luggage as we wanted to explore the area first.

Onsen was beautiful! In summer time they opened up the dividing wall between the indoor and outdoor pools and thus allowed the air to flow in, increasing the spatial feel of the onsen. Water was nice and silky. Amenities were adequate though I was surprised at the lack of toothbrush and toothpaste.

Kaiseki dinner was excellent with a variety of local produce presented delicately and specially curated to bring forth a seamless presentation of taste and sight. Highlight was the wagyu beef hotpot. Had to give up two slices to son because it was just so tender and delicious.

At last, I would like to thanks & high regards for two staffs of the service team, Front desk agent-高木 was pretty helpful, and also he can speak fluent English so the check in procedure was smooth. Annie is very nice person who provided a lot of information to me. I must definitely to stay this resort again in the nearly future.

The hotel itself is old but they have renovations last year, so the restaurant, onsen, indoor swimming pool, resting area and some rooms are look new. Room is clean & spacious with a nice balcony overlooking the sea. They have illuminations at night and are special and nice. We spent the whole afternoon at the indoor swimming pool and it was fun. We had buffet dinner and breakfast, food are mostly delicious but time for eating is only about one hour, it is too short to enjoy the food.
