TheMana Village brings together the serenity of a plush retreat and the energy of local revitalization, surrounded by the wild beauty of Ashizuri-Uwakai National Park.

The hotel’s lavishly appointed rooms offer guests unimpeded views of the Pacific Ocean from Cape Ashizuri, the southernmost tip of the island of Shikoku. The resort seeks to be as sustainable as possible by renovating existing buildings, reducing the use of plastic, and selecting environmentally friendly amenities. 

Meals for guests and at the elegant Azzurrissimo Italian restaurant, which is open to the public, incorporate local produce to support farmers in the area. The resort also has plans to open its own organic farm where guests can take part in agricultural activities. 

You can visit nearby Kongofukuji Temple, which is part of the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage, wander the walking trails, or rent e-bikes to explore further afield. Dip your feet in the Pacific Ocean and see if you can spot one of the sea turtles that visit this area during their egg-laying season. After a day of adventures in the national park, relax under the stars in the hotel’s hot springs while listening to the sound of the waves.
