Best Luxury Hotels In Okinawa

This island, located in the southwestern part of Japan, is known for its laid-back lifestyle. With a subtropical climate, the best time to visit Okinawa is during the spring and autumn. Go snorkelling or diving at Emerald Beach, Sunset Beach and Nishihama Beach. Explore the unique Okinawan culture by visiting sites like Shuri Castle, Ryukyu Mura and the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium. Delve into some history at the Peace Memorial Park and the underground bunkers of Nakagusuku Castle. And try some of the popular local specialities like goya champuru and Okinawa soba.

The Ritz-Carlton, Okinawa

See Okinawa’s attractions via a complimentary driver service, when you stay at The Ritz-Carlton. The resort hotel benefits from being in the verdant grounds of the Kise Country Club, overlooking a large lagoon and the sea. Dine inside, or out on the terrace at Chura Nuhji, whose menu intrigues with Italian recipes made using Japanese ingredients, for a fusion effect. Or opt for teppanyaki prepared before you at Kise, and all-day international cuisine at Gusuku. There’s also a swimming pool and a spa, and you’ll be close to the beach and golf courses.
