Perfect breakfast

This Mediterranean-like resort hotel belongs to JAL group. The design of this hotel is South Europe style. I had good impression of this hotel as it’s perfectly clean. You can have breakfast at the restaurant with sea view and enjoy eating dishes from Okinawa, Japanese and Western food. If you want to eat at particular restaurant at particular time, you must make a booking. I think going to local restaurants around the hotel isn’t bad option.

Hotel Nikko Alivila

You’re looking for a resort hotel in Okinawa, right? I recommend Hotel Nikko Alivila. The blue coral ocean you can view from the hotel makes you recognize that you are really at the resort hotel in Okinawa as it is totally different ocean you can see in Honsyu.

You can have a great stay at this hotel as if you are staying at a resort hotel in Spain

The beach in front of this hotel is very beautiful and you cannot hardly take your eyes off. You’ll be excited about the beautiful lobby which looks like a resort hotel in Spain. You can actually stay reasonable at this hotel because this hotel offers many varieties of rooms and plans. It means that there are gaps in the rate range. There are many restaurants and meals are very delicious. You can enjoy staying there.

Great facilities and meals

This resort hotel is in Yomitan. The front desk is at 1st floor and the corridor was really impressive as it looks like a Spanish corridor. I think you often eat at restaurant inside of the hotel when you stay at the resort hotel. I was satisfied with the taste at each restaurant at this hotel. I especially remember that the meals were reasonable and delicious and the lunch basket. This hotel is located in the middle point between Naha and north area so I think that it’s great location to travel if you have a rental car. I recommend this hotel.

A spacious hotel with good view

This chic hotel is decorated in mainly white colour as if it’s in South France. I stayed there with my family 2 times but we were totally satisfied with our stays. The room is twin type and very spacious. There is a great private beach. I think the price will be not so expensive in March. The bathroom isn’t a modular bath but the bath with washing space. It helps a lot. I recommend this hotel.

Perfect breakfast buffet

This hotel receives the awards in many websites. A room is with ocean view and you can see beautiful ocean of Okinawa from the terrace. Breakfast buffet with many different dishes is very delicious. I recommend that you take your time to eat this delicious breakfast at the hotel. If you rent a car, you can easily go to Aquarium.

You can savour the feeling of resort.

The blue ocean is right in front of your eyes. Colourful flowers make you increase your resort mood. This hotel is located in the middle of Okinawa so it’s convenient to go for sightseeing by rental car. You can easily drive to must-see Shurijyo in the south of Okinawa, Himeyuri no tou or Cyuraumi aquarium in the north area. Although this is a long-established hotel, it’s clean and you can stay there without any problems and worries. I think you can have a relaxed stay.

A resort hotel where you can have slow and quality time for an adult

I recommend The Busena Terrace if you want to have a relaxed and slow time at the hotel. This hotel can be said as a top-class in Okinawa in terms of meals and service. A room is spacious and comfortable to stay at. In addition, this hotel is located in Nago city so it’s perfect location to drive to isolated islands.

This high-class hotel was the one of the sites for Okinawa summit.

his high-class hotel is located in Nago. I stayed at this hotel twice for 5 nights in total. I can say that this hotel is the place where top leaders from all over the world gather together. 2000 notes were produced as a memory of this summit. The service and room are just perfect. If you can, I recommend that you stay at the room more than deluxe twin. There is a big common bath so you can have a relaxed time. I really like the teppanyaki restaurant. I recommend that you book a table in advance and take a course around 12,000yen. You can also choose to sit on the smoking area or non-smoking area. This hotel is located in the centre of mainland so it’s very convenient to travel wherever you want to go. There are many restaurants inside of this hotel. Free parking. It’s memorable hotel. There is a white sand private beach and it is a perfect place to take a walk. You can also see fishes swimming at the underwater panorama room.

This hotel is a perfect for resort stay

Although this hotel is famous, I think you can stay there cheaper than the normal rate in March. This hotel is located in the middle of Okinawa so it’s convenient to drive to the north are with full o nature. Of course there are great facilities inside of the hotel so I think staying at hotel isn’t bad option.

You can have a relaxed and comfortable stay

When you check-in, you’ll receive the warm welcome and explanation of the hotel while sitting on a comfortable sofa. The lobby and corridor are open ceiling place to the sea so you can receive comfortable breeze and look across the magnificent view. There is a walking course so you can take a walk. You can also visit the cape or have a relaxed time at the beach in the hotel. This hotel is located in the mainland of Okinawa but there are many islands which are connected to the mainland via bridges such as Kourijima, Yagajijima or Sesokojima.

This hotel is a perfect place for relaxing!

I highly recommend this hotel if you want to enjoy beautiful blue sky and ocean of Okinawa. The staffs at the hotel take good care of guests. I’m sure that you feel rich when you eat at hotel’s restaurant. Although the rate is a bit pricey, I recommend this hotel for your Okinawa trip with your wife because you can savour the feeling of resort.

A resort you can enjoy in Japan

You can enjoy being in a elegant space as well as savoring the feeling of extraordinary. I recommend that you stay at a room with ocean view. There aren’t many noisy guests there so you can enjoy the quiet atmosphere and having a relaxed time. The beach is right in front and you can enjoy some activities. Going to panorama building in the sea is also interesting. I think staying at this hotel is convenient if you plan to go to the north part of Okinawa or museum with whale shark to escape from the busyness in Naha. Manzamou or activity spot with dolphins are nearby so you’ll never get bored.

Convenient for sightseeing and reasonable rate

I recommend this hotel if you travel around the island by rental car. You can take highway from Naha. This hotel is recommended as a base for sightseeing such as Churaumi aquarium. What I like most is the great ocean view from the room. There is a big common bath which stands to the ocean. There are many restaurants inside of the hotel so you’ll have no problems. (I stayed there for 2 nights and I had dinner at the restaurants inside of the hotel. The meals were delicious. There is also yakiniki restaurant). The location isn’t great so I could stay there cheaper than I expected. There is an indoor pool at the hotel (I didn’t use but).

Convenient for sightseeing

The outside of this hotel is designed with the wave motif. The beach is right in front. I recommend that you take a walk in the morning or you view the sunset. This hotel is located next to the national road 58 so it’s very convenient to travel.

A hotel in Naha city with delicious buffet

The nearest station of Yui rail is Asahibashi station and it takes about 15mins by foot to reach this hotel. A few rental car companies are nearby. There is one rental car company one the way to go to the hotel from Asahibashi station. There is a butterfly-shaped pool on the 1st floor at the hotel so you can savor the feeling of resort. Although the interior is gorgeous, the rate is reasonable so it is good value for money. This hotel is matching to your request as you’re looking for cheaper accommodation. I recommend delicious buffet with many dishes. This hotel also has twin rooms.

Magnificent view!

Okinawa Zanpamisaki Royal Hotel is in Yomitanson and has a private beach. This hotel is located near the sea coast. You can look across the beautiful ocean until the horizon on a sunny day. There are not many things around the hotel so I think the location of this hotel is perfect to spend relaxed time.

This hotel with great view is located in Cyatan. You can use a hot spring facility at different building for free. The rate is around 10,000yen per person with breakfast. There are many shops and malls in Cyatan and you can have a lot of fun. It’s also convenient to travel to other areas. This hotel has a little bit luxury atmospheres.

Perfect distance and delicious meals!

It takes about 1 hour by rental car from the airport to reach this hotel. You’ll be stuck in the traffic jam depending on the time within Naha city so you need to be careful to the booking time for dinner. There is no traffic jam if you come to Ginowan. The restaurant (Paseo garden) at the hotel served delicious meals and I didn’t get bored of dishes for 3 days. You can eat dishes with full of fruits and vegetables. You can select the toppings in the omelet and the chef cooks it in front of you. Kaihin park is nearby and it is a good place for walk. You can see beautiful sunset from there. There is a pool and beauty massage salon so I think this hotel is a perfect place for you to have a relaxed time.

Spacious rooms and many different dishes at buffet

Although there are many resort hotels in Okinawa, I get bored of staying there as the rooms are tiny or the meals are often buffet style. But I recommend Kanucha Bay Hotel because the size of the room is more than 50m2 with nice view. There are many restaurants for Japanese, Western, Chinese food and at least 6 restaurants are always open. I think the rate is reasonable as well.

Dinner is a important point in Okinawa

I have been traveling to Okinawa more than 20 times and I can say that dinner is a important point in Okinawa. Many restaurants which serve delicious and cheap meals are open until evening so it means they close for dinner. There are no restaurants around the resort hotels, where you can have dinner. Having dinner at the hotel… I have eaten dinner at many different hotels but most of them are way too expensive and I’m often not satisfied with the tastes. However, I recommend the Chinese restaurant ‘Makanmakan’. I live in Kanto area but I have the lunch ticket of this restaurant. For your information, J Company offers all-you-can-eat desserts plan with a stay at cooperated hotel. I think this restaurant offers 1000yen dinner in winter. This hotel isn’t located in the resort but in the town. So you can go to supermarkets (Oki mart, Kanehide or SAN-A) to buy something for dinner. If you have enough budgets, you can stay at Renaissance and you can savor the feeling of resort. The usage of laundry is for free.

A hotel you can have a relaxed time

This is a hotel you can have a relaxed time while looking the view of Manzamou. You can drive directly to the hotel if you rent a car at the airport. If you go to the hotel by other ways, the rental car company can arrange your rental car and bring the car at your hotel anytime it suits you.
