About Benesse House
Benesse House is both a museum and a hotel, designed by Tadao Ando, one of Japan's best-known architects. It is made up of four separate buildings. The Museum is ideal if you want to get close to the art – you are literally living among the artists' work. The Oval is close to the museum, with panoramic views of the Inland Sea, while the park offers views across the green lawns and the sparkling sea. The Beach has just eight rooms, so it's perfect for families and groups. The Beach Suites are mere steps from the water's edge.
You’ll find a restaurant and café, a spa and a shop onsite. Given its location, you can be certain that art provides a running theme through these locations too.
