Hoshino Resorts Iriomote Hotel opened on October 1st, 2019, on Iriomote Island, Okinawa Prefecture. This hotel is the second facility run by Hoshino Resorts on the Yaeyama Islands, following HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island. The concept is “a jungle resort on the island where Iriomote cats live.” This is the largest resort hotel on Iriomote Island, with a total of 138 rooms. It offers a stay where guests can fully enjoy the charm of Iriomote Island through outdoor activities, where they can enjoy the natural environment of Iriomote Island, and tours in which they can be exposed to rare ecosystems and the culture of the island.
Iriomote Island, where this hotel is located, is one of the Yaeyama Islands at the most southwestern tip of Japan. It is a subtropical island surrounded by a coral reef sea, and a jungle covers 90% of its surface. It is also called “Japan’s last unexplored region” because of its rare flora and fauna, including Iriomote wildcats, a Special Natural Monument. It has the second largest area in Okinawa Prefecture following the main island of Okinawa, and it is rich in water, so activities on rivers and waterfalls can be enjoyed even though it is a remote island. Mangroves grow in the rivers, creating a magnificent tropical atmosphere. Iriomote Island is the only place where all seven species of mangrove to be found in Japan grow. In addition, the regional area, including Iriomote Island, is striving to be registered as a World Natural Heritage site in 2020.
