The interest in Okinawa as a travel destination has been growing over the years, with international interest piqued from the prefecture's publicity in TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice Awards. As a result, new accommodation facilities have been popping up, and one such option is the Ryukyu Hotel & Resort Nashiro Beach.
The resort is set to open on July 23rd, 2022, and the 11-story venue has over 400 guest rooms which all have balconies and water views. The modern interior was designed with both Okinawan and European elements in mind – for instance, the headboards in certain rooms are made using Miyako jofu, a type of textile made from the ramie plant found on Miyakojima.
One of the highlights at Ryukyu Hotel & Resort Nashiro Beach is the number of on-site pools that guests can choose from. There are six in total, including an ocean pool, a kids pool, and an all-season pool which is heated year-round.
In addition, there are nine restaurants and bars on-site, meaning you don't have to leave the resort at all if you don't want to. Some of the options are Buffet Dining Nashiro (open for breakfast and lunch with a wide variety of Japanese, Western and Chinese dishes on offer), Rainbow (a teppanyaki restaurant with panoramic ocean views), and Fine Dining Milano (a full-course restaurant with a focus on beef and seafood).
The venue even has a chapel and ballroom ready for those who want to embrace Okinawa as a wedding destination.
Reservations for the Ryuku Hotel & Resort Nashiro Beach can be made by visiting their official website.
