In Okinawa, there are many luxury hotels and villas where you can enjoy a luxurious resort stay. But don’t you hesitate to make a reservation because the hotel charges increase in summer?
I would definitely recommend an off-season trip to Okinawa. In the winter when hotel and plane fares become reasonable, there is a high possibility that the hotels you dream of will fall within your budget!
There are many leisure activities and events that can be enjoyed even in winter in warm Okinawa. There are many ways to enjoy it, such as relaxing on the beach or by the poolside, going into a heated pool, or going on a cruise or stroll.
You can have a relaxing resort time in Okinawa where there are few people.♥
The Ritz-Carlton, Okinawa | Okinawa Main Island
The Ritz-Carlton, one of the world’s most prestigious hotels, has a strong urban image in Japan.
However, The Ritz-Carlton Okinawa is known as Japan’s first resort hotel.
There is a calm adult world about 75 minutes by car from Naha Airport. The sophisticated and chic design of the guest rooms is perfect for adult vacations.
You can see beautiful water everywhere in the hotel. At the terrace of the All Day Dining Gusk, the beautiful Nago Bay spreads out beyond the transparent water garden.
Even in a place that is too hot to stay for a long time in summer, it becomes an ideal relaxation space in winter when the sunlight is warm and you feel comfortable.♪
If you are traveling with girls who like sweets, I recommend you to enjoy afternoon tea in the lobby lounge with a nice view.
The original sweets made with Okinawan ingredients have a gentle taste that will make you feel like traveling. Spend an elegant afternoon chatting.(●ˇ∀ˇ●)
On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the feeling of summer even a little, I recommend a spa.
It is an open space surrounded by the forest of Yanbaru, and there is also a jet bath on the terrace. There are many services such as indoor swimming pool, bedrock bath, and fitness, which make you warm both physically and mentally even in winter.

The Busena Terrace | Okinawa Main Island
About 90 minutes by car from Naha Airport, you will arrive at the famous Busena Cape, where the Okinawa Summit was held. The Busena Terrace, located on the cape, is also one of Okinawa’s leading luxury resort hotels.

There are a number of restaurants, cafes and bars where you can choose where you want to relax. If you want to relax on the terrace, I recommend relaxing in a cafe during a warm and comfortable day.
Dressing up for dinner and going to another restaurant will make you feel fresh enough to forget you’re in the same hotel. You can enjoy both healing and special feeling of beach resort at the same time.
You can participate in various activities in the hotel, so why don’t you experience various things?
For example, at the craft house on the site, you can try the Okinawan traditional Bingata dyeing. It’s nice that your memories will remain in shape.♪(^∇^*)
There is also a yacht cruise activity. You can enjoy a superb view that you can’t see from the ground.
For those who want to relax, it is good to spend time in the room while feeling the wind of Okinawa. It is also great to spend a luxurious time without doing anything.
There are facilities such as an indoor swimming pool and fitness center in the building, so anyone can have the best vacation time for that person.
