“Crafted coastal elegance”

Cultured. Lustrous. A luxury nurtured through unhurried evolution. Coincidentally, the same words used to describe Amanemu can also be applied to the pearls that are cultivated in the bay the resort overlooks. Just a few hours from Tokyo, Amanemu is neon light-years from the crowded Japanese metropolises and the suites are more akin to contemporary abodes in a traditional Japanese village. Further relaxation is but an onsen soak away with hot spring waters piped directly to your in-suite bathtub.

Best time to visit : March to May, September to November

On the shores of Ago Bay, Amanemu’s rustic ryokan-inspired retreat is where Japan’s ancient hospitality ritual finds its contemporary expression. Mineral-rich waters from a natural hot spring enable guests to embrace the tradition of onsen bathing - while nourishment in culinary form reflects a region famed for rare delicacies. Surrounded by Unesco pilgrim trails, sacred forests and the diving culture of the pearl-rich Pacific, here, rejuvenative stays and wellness experiences are imbued with a deeper cultural sensibility.
