I visited this resort one night while in Iriomote-jima. It is always relaxing to spend a night at an onsen resort and after hearing that one was located in Iriomote-jima, of course I had to visit it. Now the resort itself is really nothing special. A typical 3-star Western-style hotel in Japan. The rooms were spacious and had all of the expected amenities, but were in need of a renovation. WLAN was available in the Lobby which is for me a negative. I like staying connected to the internet and not having to leave my room. Dinner and breakfast were of course included in the price, but it was nothing to write home about.
The only thing that made this hotel special was the outdoor onsen. What a treat. I always love soaking in the Japanese-style mineral baths. You usually do 2-3 times soakings in baths of different temperatures. First went outside to soak in some baths after dinner and then went inside to baths inside for my evening bath.
If you are going to visit Iriomote-jima anyway, I recommend staying one night at this hotel or at least visit the onsen baths once. This resort was not good enough to be the sole reason for visiting Iriomote-jima.
