Japan’s Seto Island Sea. This area was voted one of 52 places to visit in 2019 by The New York Times and seeing it from guntû is outstanding. The only floating ryokan on the Seto Inland Sea, guntû offers one to three-night trips across more than 10 routes.
Choose to stay in one of the four different types of suite on board, all of which are wood paneled and designed by Japanese architect Yasushi Horibe. Whichever of the 19 suites you pick, you can be sure of a wonderful view as you traverse this area, whether from inside your room, your open-air bath or your terrace near the sea’s surface.
Discover your surroundings by taking one of the off-ship activities which include morning walks on Miyajima or an art trip to islands such as Naoshima and Inujima.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, guntû’s philosophy of ‘what you want, and as much as you want’ ensures your complete satisfaction. Choose from a wide range of local dishes including sushi, seafood, Wagyu beef and seasonal specialities of Setouchi. Relax in the bar or spend time in the spa, enjoying a treatment, sauna or a workout in the gym.
This experience is pure luxury in an environment most never even think to visit. Make the most of this tranquil trip. Floating on the Seto Inland Sea on guntû is a near-perfect experience.
guntû accommodates guests across 19 cabins with four different types of suite. All the cabins are wood panelled and designed by Japanese architect, Yasushi Horibe. They each feature terraces which are placed close to the sea’s surface.
