Best Western has opened a new beachfront hotel on the Japanese island of Okinawa.
Located at Nago Bay, the new Best Western Okinawa Kouki Beach is set in a modern 10-storey building positioned just metres from the shore.
All rooms, which range in size from 30 to 60m², offer free Wi-Fi and balconies that overlook the bay towards Minna Island and the Motobu Peninsula. And the larger rooms sleep up to six guests and featuring private cooking facilities.
The hotel also features a beachfront restaurant, Kouki, plus a laundry, massage services and a business centre.
“Okinawa has always been a tourism hotspot for Japanese travellers, and an increasing number of international visitors are now starting to discover this idyllic topical island,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s managing director of international operations – Asia.
“With multiple international flights now landing in Okinawa, including new direct charter services from Singapore, this tropical paradise is more accessible than ever before.
“With its absolute beachfront location, spacious rooms and the world-class service that only Best Western can ensure, Best Western Okinawa Kouki Beach is sure to become a popular seaside retreat for both Japanese and international travellers alike. I am confident it will be an excellent addition to our Asian portfolio,” he added.
Japan is one of Best Western’s largest Asian markets, and the launch of Best Western Okinawa Kouki Beach marks the next step in the company’s nationwide expansion, following the recent opening of Best Western Rembrandt Hotel Tokyo Machida.
In Okinawa alone, Best Western now operates three hotels – Best Western Okinawa Onna Beach, Best Western Naha Inn and Best Western Okinawa Kouki Beach – and this latest opening takes the company’s Japanese collection to 14 properties.
