A series of layered, well-proportioned spaces lead guests on a journey to gradually uncover different elements of the resort and the island, where rich natural and cultural sites remain.

By drawing inspiration from the site itself, a key intention of the project is to recreate an experience that could only be found in Okinawa.

Traditional Okinawan settlements are typically built hunkered down among protective tree belts and stone walls to withstand frequent storms. A similar setting is created for the resort as a whole, using layers of lush local planting that would allow guests to enjoy all parts of the resort all year round.

Beginning with a warm welcome on an elevated castle-like promontory, the intimate grand lobby, guestrooms and commodious public areas in a low-density layout are designed to take in the island’s ocean views, rocky cliffs and beaches.

Local stone, clay tile and wood-inspired details further celebrate Okinawan character and craft by conveying an authenticity reminiscent of the island’s rockscapes and caves.

While the main hotel takes a more ‘traditional’ approach, the resort's ancillary buildings, such as the spa, specialty restaurants, bar and wedding pavilion, all draw inspiration from the sea and Okinawa as a tropical island to create distinctive surprises waiting to be discovered by guests as they move around the resort.
