It is located in the Shima area with a great sea view. Shima is where the 2016 G7 Summit was held. There are so many golf courses and many French restaurants around the area. On their website I found the African suite quite impressive and therefore I chose this hotel. The hotel is located on the hillside slope facing west, a great direction to see the sunset. My wife picked up some pearl products on our way to the hotel in Kashikojima. This area is famous for cultured pearl products and oyster.
The hotel is not very big but with decent facilities. By looking at the layout I guess all the rooms are facing west to see the sunset. The room I chose was very big, about 50 square meters, and with a balcony. If you open the window in the bathroom, you will see the sunset from the bath tub. But I found the room is a bit dark even when I turned on all the lights in the room.
The best selling point of the onsen is its west facing direction. I found the restaurant very nice to dine in. Service is very good, and food is decent. Ise ebi (lobster) is the highlight. Since it is a resort style hotel, atmosphere is more lively than ordinary onsen hotel. Breakfast is buffet style and with sufficient and good quality food.
For the price I paid and the service received, it is a very good choice coming to this hotel.
