- HOSHINOYA Okinawa
Hoshino Resorts (headquarters in Nagano, Japan, CEO Yoshiharu Hoshino) will open its eighth HOSHINOYA property on 1 July, 2020 in Okinawa Prefecture. HOSHINOYA Okinawa aims to bring ultimate luxury from the coastlines of Okinawa. The property is built along the coastlines and is protected by Gusuku stonewalls, which was inspired by local architecture. Gusuku refers to an area that is enclosed by a stone wall and it is where the rich culture of Okinawa was developed. It will be a symbol of protection of the precious experiences at HOSHINOYA Okinawa. Facilities include all guest rooms with ocean views, pools that can be enjoyed throughout the year, and an activity studio to experience the Okinawan culture.
Some of the locals say that the ocean is not for entry but is something to gaze into. A stay to live with the views of the ocean will be possible here, which will surely fill your heart and mind with the luxuries of Okinawa.
Four Elements that Completes HOSHINOYA Okinawa
1)Nature of Okinawa enclosed by Gusuku stonewalls
Located near a beautiful coast and abundant nature with flora and fauna of Okinawa, we chose the best location possible in Okinawa. There are numerous areas where guests can feel nature, which includes the untouched beach extends in front of the guest rooms, the gardens that blend with the design of the property, and the pools that can be enjoyed throughout the year. The nature in Okinawa will change in front of your eyes, depending on its season and time.
2)A lifestyle with the ocean view
All 100 guest rooms have a view of the ocean, which will make you feel as if the ocean belongs to you. The sea breeze can enter through the large windows and will be able to feel the breeze wherever you are in the room. To be able to gaze at the ocean from a close distance, the buildings are not higher than 2 floors. The beach near the property is an untouched, natural beach which is rare in Okinawa. Coral reefs called “Ino” spread in the ocean and it is vital for the marine ecosystem. HOSHINOYA Okinawa was built in a way to protect this untouched beach and the natural environment that is unique to this location.
3)One of a kind experiences with Okinawan culture
Locals used to enjoy activities and festivals within the Gusuku stonewalls. To enjoy some of these activities, there will be various, seasonal, or yearly experiences to be provided at HOSHINOYA Okinawa.
Examples of Experiences:
Morning Horse Riding
Yomitan used to have the largest horse ground and Ryukyu horse racing used to be popular amongst those of the Ryukyu Kingdom. Ryukyu horse racing is not only a competition for speed but is also evaluated for the rhythm of the legs as well as posture. With this history, this experience aims to walk along the beach, focusing on posture.
