To start planning your holiday to Hotel Nakanoshima


Sitting amongst the lush greenery of its own island and the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean, this resort-style hotel boasts indoor and outdoor hot spring baths, light, spacious rooms and delicious Japanese cuisine.

The 44 rooms of Hotel Nakanoshima enjoy an enviable location on a private island in the dazzling waters of the Pacific Ocean. With both indoor and outdoor hot spring baths, the hotel offers a taste of traditional Japanese bathing in tranquil surrounds.

The rooms are light and airy, with a simple decor that echoes traditional Japanese design in its sleek lines and muted colours but adds western-style beds, private bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning. With either Japanese or standard rooms, guests can choose from traditional tatami mat seating areas or sofas and armchairs. The rooms in the newer building, Naginosho, boast their own open-air baths, while all rooms enjoy a view of the ocean.

With a changing menu of dishes crafted from local, seasonal ingredients, the restaurant serves traditional Kaiseki meals in modern, minimalist surrounds with a view of the ocean. A stylish lounge offers space to relax and socialise with a drink or enjoy a book by the fire. The island boasts six natural hot springs and the hotel harnesses these with its indoor and outdoor ‘onsen’, strategically located to allow guests to bathe with panoramic views of Nachi Bay.

Hotel Nakanoshima offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, its private island location and hot spring baths setting the scene for a restful and restorative stay.
