Nature and luxury in perfect harmony, for ultimate relaxation
In the mountainous onsen haven of Gunma Prefecture, the Bettei Senjuan hot spring resort relaxes the body and refreshes the spirit. Each of the 18 guest rooms has a private outdoor onsen, from which you can admire the scenery while the hot water melts your cares away. Meals are served in the privacy of your room, adding to the air of exclusivity. You will be served carefully selected local, seasonal ingredients such as Kuroge Wagyu beef and salt-grilled fish.
Having few rooms enables guests to relax and enjoy the facilities in comfort and peace. Stroll through the spacious garden overlooked by rugged Mt. Tanigawa, or lose yourself in the reading room surrounded by the thick green forest. Each aspect of the hotel has been designed with exceptional attention to detail, featuring wooden sliding doors carved by artisans in Niigata, washi paper artwork by Eriko Horiki, and calligraphy by Nobuko Kawahara that depicts the passage of the four seasons. A key architectural feature is the 8-meter-high curved corridor with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the garden. Designed to remove the barrier between people and nature, it offers unparalleled views of the stars after nightfall.
