“A hotel with heart!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stayed here 25-28 May 2013 for the Memorial Day holiday. The hosts, Shozo and Tokako, are two of the warmest, friendliest people you could ever hope to meet, and our room had everything we could hope for: beds, hot showers, and working air conditioner! We had our car, kayaks, and snorkeling/fishing gear with us, but the list of tours they offer is extensive. We were invited to choose a time to have breakfast, and Tokako made a delicious breakfast every morning, complete with fresh bread, tea, and coffee. Shozo gave us some suggestions on where to go for good snorkeling and fishing for "mibai," or grouper. Our room was clean, neat, and simply comfortable - a perfect place to come home to after a day in the water! Okinawa Resort is a smaller hotel, only a few rooms and two cottages, but the hospitality and attentiveness to our needs far exceeded anything we've had at larger resorts. We love Zamami and will visit here again, and we hope to stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2-person cottage. We used the beds downstairs, but there is a loft that could slee...

Stayed at the Okinawa resort in June 2013.

Definitely recommended to stay at this resort. The rooms are not that big pretty standard Japanese sized rooms. However it does have an upstairs and downstairs each Cottage can house 4 people comfortably. The cottages don't come with a cooker but has big kitchen sink and a fridge freezer. We stayed in the deluxe rooms which have a private shower room. If you're in a regular room the lay out is the same just without the shower and you have to share with other guests (of course one at a time).


The owner is a really nice guy and really friendly as is his wife. They offer many different tours and would recommend the snorkelling tour in around April to June where you can see see turtles. There is also a "Mystery Tour" which is quite good.

The resort has Wi-Fi available but only around the reception area.

They offer bike rental which is really cheap compared to the rest of the island at only JPY 800 whereas the island rental rates range from JPY2000 to 3000.

They have cheap breakfasts at only JPY 1000 and its all home-made with amazing home-made herbal tea, accompanied with lovely service. They will also accommodate any dietary requirements if needed.

The owners don't hire any staff and do everything themselves, they are really helpful and offer great help whenever you need it. They will provide useful information, e.g. where the best beaches are on a particular day depending on the conditions of the sea and the weather

Located in the Central South part of Zamami Island and is equidistant to two amazing beaches.

Highly recommended if you ever happened to find ourself in this little paradise.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe rooms where Wi-Fi is more accessible.
