Setouchi Retreat Aonagi
This seven-room luxury hotel sits on top of a mountain overlook, reflecting the blue sky above and the calm, mirror-like Seto Inland Sea below. Built by the famous Tadao Ando, Setouchi Retreat Aonagi strips away the unnecessary and delivers the luxury of total tranquility. Its minimalist style brings nature up close while catering to every comfort. A pool that looks out over the sea, a second indoor pool, a hot spring, a holistic spa, a farm-to-table dining room, and a skilled staff that provides for your every need sees Setouchi Retreat Aonagi set a new standard.
The seven suites are each at least 100 square meters, and each has a reminder of the surrounding region—hot spring baths, panoramic views, gardens. Relax poolside all afternoon, trek your way through the surrounding Seto Inland Sea National Park, or visit nearby Dogo Onsen, Japan’s oldest hot spring baths. The options are as endless as the view from the pool.
