Hardware is good but service is definitely not up to international standard. 1. Have to book room service 90min! in advance + also have to book the delivery time window even earlier in the day. 2. Spa treatment is sub par at best. No facilities like jacuzzi, steam sauna, etc. there is a hot tub but that comes with extra...

This is the best place to stay if all you want to do is to relax and enjoy a quite time on a tiny island. You get your own cottage which is a traditional housing style of the island. After you check-in, a staff will take you to your cottage by a small cart. You also get some explanations on...

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...

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...

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.

It was not easy traveling to Taketomi Island from Naha. But once we arrived there, our tiredness from the journey melted away instantly. We found ourselves the only foreigners there, most of the house guests were Japanese. Some of the staff speak good English.
