Recharge your spirit in luxurious style with a stay in an ancient forest

Sankara Hotel & Spa Yakushima

Yakushima hangs off of the coast of Kyushu, a single pearl in the warm ocean. This heavily forested island is revered for the ancient cedars flanking the tall mountains, which grow even in the rough granite thanks to abundant rain. Yakushima has a sub-tropical climate, meaning that even in winter the warm sea keeps the weather mild. A stay at Sankara Hotel & Spa Yakushima is a chance to absorb the peaceful energy of the island’s primordial forests. The villas are spread throughout the woods, and rooms are modern, incorporating local tilework, wood, and textiles. You will meet your personal butler upon arrival to plan outings, dining, and to discover how your every need can be catered for.

Two restaurants on the property use local ingredients to create French-inspired food that respects the heritage of Yakushima. Relax at the incredible spa, selecting treatments designed to use the woods, minerals, and stones from the surrounding forests. The Sankara Hotel & Spa Yakushima makes an unforgettable indulgence.
