Luxury Accommodations in the Midst of an Ancient Forest
A quality hotel and spa welcomes guests at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Yakushima island
The lush island of Yakushima sits some 60 kilometers off the southern tip of Kyushu. It is known for its ancient forest, including the giant yakusugi cedar trees, some thought to date back over 2,000 years. It was designated a World Heritage Site in 1993.
The Sankara Hotel & Spa Yakushima sits in a secluded natural setting between the sea and the mountains of this lightly populated island. The luxury resort consists of several villas scattered among the forest, some with their private spas or outdoor baths. The magnificent views and comforting seclusion are only matched by the high level of service.
Two restaurants offer French cuisine made from local seasonal ingredients. The superb spa is manned by expert staff. A pool offers a grand view of the sea and the surrounding forest, and a fully stocked gym rounds out the guest facilities.
The resort offers a relaxing getaway with access to the natural wildlife of this rugged island.
