HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island

Hoshinoya Taketomijima

Okinawa /Taketomi Island/Resort Hotel

Spend your time as if you were living on a remote island in Okinawa. A luxury resort where all rooms are independent

Taketomi Island is a place where traditional culture and traditional villages have been protected by the spirit of "Utsugumi", which means unity and cooperation. HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island, built on such a precious island, is an inn based on the concept of ``paradise on the island of Utsugumi''. Relax in the red-tiled roof rooms surrounded by stone walls, and enjoy the pool and other activities. You can feel like an islander.

Extraordinary remote island stay with children
2 days and 1 night stay with family

A woman who enjoyed a trip to Taketomi Island in Okinawa with her 3-year-old daughter will introduce how she spent her time staying at HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island.

First day


About 8 minutes by shuttle bus from Taketomi Port to the inn

The original scenery of Okinawa remains
To tranquil Taketomi Island

A family-friendly trip to Okinawa starts! Taketomi Island, where the inn is located, is a remote island about 10 minutes by boat from Ishigaki Port. There are plenty of resort-like spots such as "Kondoi Beach" where the white sand beach and the sea are dazzling, and "Nagomi Tower" where you can see the traditional village.

Stayed in April 2021

Depart for a trip to celebrate my daughter's entrance! Taketomi Island, with stone walls and coral sand roads, was a place where the “original scenery of Okinawa” remained.



Arrive at the inn

Surrounded by the traditional beauty of the island

Check in at an inn that blends into the scenery of Taketomi Island. The 20,000 tsubo grounds are dotted with buildings with red-tiled roofs that follow the traditional Okinawan architecture, giving you an extraordinary feeling. With a side view of tropical plants and a white road of coral sand, head to the guest room in a special cart.


When I checked in, I only briefly told her that my daughter was going to enter the kindergarten, but I received a heartwarming service, such as a congratulatory bottle and drink delivered to my room.

You can stay like living in the original scenery of Okinawa. In addition to the red-tiled roofs of the guest rooms, the entire facility is built like a village, with white sand roads and hand-made stone walls.

Separate guest rooms in each building

Each of the 48 guest rooms where you can feel the life and faith of the island is independent and private. There are wonderful rooms such as "Zuki" which is ideal for family trips, "Kyangi" which has a living room with Ryukyu tatami mats, and "Gajoni" which has an open bath.


Stay at "Zuki" where you can feel like living in a village. My child doesn't always wear slippers, so I was grateful for the room where I took off my shoes.



24 hours a day, all year round
Pool that tickles your child's mind

There is a pool that can be used 24 hours a day on the premises of the inn! The view of the surrounding scenery reflected in the elliptical pool built in a mortar-shaped depression is photogenic. This can be heated, so you can enjoy it not only in summer but all year round.


I swam in the open-air outdoor pool.



Lounge and beach ♡
Island time with family

There are plenty of things to enjoy in the hotel, from the Yuntaku Lounge where you can taste famous Okinawan sweets and drinks, to the Miharashidai overlooking the village, and the Hoshinoya Spa where you can unwind your mind and body. The beach "Aiyaru Beach" near the hotel is also recommended.


Enjoy the scenery from the observation deck on the premises, or take a stroll along the beach. At the Yuntaku Lounge, we also enjoyed playing the sanshin (a traditional Okinawan musical instrument).

We also recommend watching the sunrise from the observatory. At HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island, which is located in the east, you can see the glow of the morning sun and the sea at once from the observatory.

At Shima Jikan Spa, you can receive treatments using seaweed and plants that are popular in this area. Deep healing can be obtained in the relaxing time.


Plenty of Okinawan ingredients
Savor the "seasonal dinner"

In the dining room, you can enjoy “Ryukyu Nouvelle”, which is made with French techniques to bring out the charm of ingredients unique to Okinawa. "Seasonal dinner" is a course meal full of island vegetables, herbs, and seafood. In addition, in-room dining is also ◎.


Enjoy French cuisine using fresh vegetables and fish from the island in the hotel dining room. The elegant and beautifully arranged dishes were voluminous.

Have a quiet night

Free time after dinner. You can also enjoy awamori and drinks at the Yuntaku Lounge. You can feel the night breeze by the poolside. You can spend time with your family in the guest room. If the weather is good, you can enjoy a star-filled sky and a clear moon.


The street lights are dark on the premises, so I was able to enjoy the starry sky from the garden of the room. It was a relaxing time spent just looking at the night sky in silence.


with quality amenities
a special bath time

Relax in the bath at the end of the day. Luxurious amenities such as skin care sets from the cosmetics brand LIRIo and the hotel's original Ryukyu bath salts will make you feel uplifted.

Enjoy your favorite breakfast

There are many choices for breakfast in the dining room. There are two types of Japanese breakfast, "Kupin breakfast" and "Yushi tofu rice porridge breakfast". For Western breakfast, you can choose between "Sea Breeze Breakfast" or "Cereal Breakfast".


Savor the "sea breeze breakfast" at the hotel's dining room. We had a healthy treat such as bouillabaisse, salad, and bread.


get in touch with nature
Variety of activities

The inn is also proud of its wide variety of activities. Various programs are available from morning to night, such as the "Morning Calm Water Buffalo Cart Stroll" where you ride around the village on a water buffalo cart, and the romantic "Night Cruising".

Enjoy it to the last minute

Relax and check out without being pressed for time. Would you like to stop by the shop in the "Gathering Hall"? In addition to popular souvenirs from Taketomi Island, HOSHINOYA Taketomi Island original sweets and goods are also available.
