Overview

Rich and rare, both in the local environment and interior character, Sankara Hotel & Spa on the remote Japanese island of Yakushima illustrates that although nature cannot be improved upon, it can be complemented. Well.

Say hello to Yakushima, an island just south of the Japanese mainland, but polar opposite to the major cities of Japan. This lush island of towering rock spires and dense forests easily qualified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here, among the retina-burning green forests and hillsides, sits the modern and decidedly minimalist Sankara Hotel & Spa, a masterpiece that allows the outside in at any chance.

29 rooms whisper with low, modern Japanese furnishings, plush bedding and views out to endless sea or verdant forest. All room and bathroom amenities are originally produced with your body and the local environment in mind.

After hiking this incredible nature habitat from end to end, recline by the outdoor pool, or in the Thai-inspired spa. One might be satisfied at this point, wondrous scenery and luxuriated body and all, but there is more. Oh … much more.

At Ayana, casual fare is not limited to French, but it is limited to the very best ingredients. For something that seems to fit a little better with the island look and feel, look no further than Okas, where Yakushima alone inspires a tropical meal sure to send you to bed feeling a local. A very satisfied local.
