In the heart of Okinawa lies the island of Taketomi. Crisp coral paths lead from the coast to three small villages, characterised by their traditional red-roofed dwellings. It’s easy to forget about the bustle of everyday life as you stroll the palm-lined streets and soak up the tranquillity. Discover local traditions rooted in Japanese history and unwind on crisp white beaches. Just a stone’s throw from the Aiyaru Beach and the Azuma Cape, Hoshinoya promises ultimate luxury and enchanting views. Blending Taketomi traditions with elegant décor and state-of-the-art facilities, this resort is a step into local life without sacrificing contemporary comforts.
Tonachi guest pavilions, located by the main reception, are ideal for those requiring access assistance. Enjoy use of handrails and an extra-wide bathroom. Kyangi pavilions are twin villas based traditional Japanese living practices. Unwind on a floor-level sofa in the lounge area and savour stunning garden views. Gajoni pavilions are perfect for couples and honeymooners since they offer a king-size bed, as well as a lounge area and a large bathroom. Zuki pavilions are designed for up to three guests and feature spacious living areas. Large windows in your bathroom allow you to relax to the gentle sounds of nature.
With the same red roofs and coral paths as Taketomi’s other villages, this resort always aims for authenticity. Local culture and traditions are embedded into the very ethos at Hoshinoya. Expect stunning Japanese cuisine, unrivalled hospitality and the best sightseeing recommendations from staff members, many of whom are locals.
