Sankara Hotel and Spa

Sankara Hotel and Spa offers a sanctuary in the forest of Yakushima Island, with the aim to revitalise guests through indulgent spa treatments and locally-inspired gastronomy.

Yakushima Island, Japan
Sankara Hotel and Spa
  • A divine array of treatments at the spa, which use the hotel’s own blend of natural healing
  • Perched on a hilltop overlooking the ocean, lose yourself in the fragrances of Yakushima’s forests
  • Japanese and French menus, enjoyed whilst overlooking the pool or ocean
  • Spacious rooms which offer flexible spaces for relaxing and enjoying the calmness

Sankara Hotel and Spa is perfectly positioned overlooking the ocean. Its use of nature to create a relaxing ambience weaves its way through every experience this sanctuary has to offer. The Sankara Sana spa draws inspiration from the elements to tailor facial and body treatments to each individual. Massages, reflexology and Japanese style soaking baths can all be arranged for individuals or couples in lovely rooms, to help you ebb away from it all.
The rooms are a true haven away from it all. The generous sleeping and living spaces make excellent use of light through the large windows, and create natural rooms in keeping with the forest environment. The two restaurants offer Japanese and French cuisine. Casual dining awaits at Ayana, where you can enjoy rare, locally-sourced ingredients according to the season. The open kitchen at Okas cooks up a world-class French menu, which you can savour while gazing out at the ocean.
