Discover an incredibly serene, comfortable, and traditional Japanese hotel that offers breath-taking ocean views and a perfect vantage point to watch the summertime fireworks shows.
Just a 15-minute boat ride from the Ishigaki ferry terminal will carry you to Taketomi Island. The hotel’s shuttle will greet you from the moment you step off the ship.
Taketomi Island in Okinawa Prefecture is an unspoilt place, preserved by building no new homes in the past fifty years. Only existing houses remain and are preserved in the local tradition: built of wood with large bay windows and the thick red roof tiles that are so characteristic of the island.
You will first be impressed by the tranquillity and authenticity of this village of 48 villas that are built just like the typical houses on the island.
While the villas are identical, you will have a choice between two styles of interior design. The first is traditional, in the style of ryokans, with their tatami-covered floors and futon beds, whereas the second is more Western with a shower, bathtub, modern beds, and tatamis only in the bedrooms. Regardless of your choice, each villa is decorated with the sophistication and clean lines characteristic of Japanese style, with dark wood furniture and couches inviting you to total relaxation.
