Summer Escape

Fusaki Beach Resort Hotel & Villas sets the stage for the perfect island getaway

Ishigaki Island is a location of unparalleled natural beauty, with expansive, white sand beaches, azure waters, and a night sky that offers glimpses of 84 of the 88 known constellations. An excellent launching point for hopping around the Yaeyama Islands, it’s also a destination where you can just let time pass as you slip into its relaxing ambience.

And whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple or with young children, there may be no place on the island that blends family-friendliness with cosmo­po­litan elegance like Fusaki Beach Resort Hotel & Villas.

The resort blends modern amenities with the culture and nature of Ishigaki, and offers 21 types of accommo­da­tions—everything from spacious rooms to villas with private pools and terraces—as well as four restaurants, a lounge and bar, a café, a spa, two pools—one of which is built parallel to the beach—and a fitness gym. Artwork that depicts the culture and landscape of Okinawa adorns some rooms and public areas.

Options For All

Fine dining is on offer at the restaurant Hanaré, which puts a spot­light on the produce of Ishigaki, expertly crafted into fusion dishes by chef Seigon Sorimachi. The Shanghai native has cooked in his home­town, as well as Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia and the United States. This artist of the kitchen brings his varied culinary skills to life in course meals that blend Ryukyuan cuisine with influences from China, Southeast Asia, Kyushu, and the West.

Hanaré’s design is equally impressive, with a tropical modernist entrance, a garden that surrounds it and an eye-­catching chandelier whose celes­­tial appearance evokes the starry sky above Ishigaki. These elements all come together to make a meal at Hanaré a feast for all the senses.

There are also attractions for young ones, such as Splash Park, an aquatic area that
offers hours of fun for children, and the babies and kids’ room Ayapani.

Should you be in the mood for some pampering, the Fusaki Spa offers a varied
treatment menu, including the Fusaki signature treatment, which features a footbath using Ishigaki salt, harvested from nearby Nagura Bay. The spa’s pair room allows two guests to enjoy a treatment together.

With its idyllic location, diverse room options and activities the whole family can enjoy, Fusaki Beach Resort Hotel & Villas sets the stage for a summer get­away that will relax, refresh, and inspire.
