Okinawan beach resort where tropical climes, coastal recuperation and privacy are key

The Shigira

This Miyakojima Island property revels in its tropical Okinawa location. Hallways feature open-air nooks and climate-appropriate cooling, each villa has a heated private pool, open outdoor living area with a Jacuzzi and a day bed, and the vast majority of the accommodation overlooks the coral-filled ocean.

The Shigira villas are painted in pink hues to complement the island's grassy hills and white sands. Spacious interiors mix breezy materials such as timber, parquet floors, and crisp linens, and bathrooms are stocked with Bvlgari amenities. Privacy is paramount, so make the most of the hotel's in-room spa. Also available are an 18-hole golf course, Segway vehicles, the nearby country club, and invitations to partake in various aquatic activities—snorkeling, diving, sea-kayaking, and SUP yoga. As an all-inclusive, high-end luxury beach resort, the Shigira provides 12 relaxed, fine-dining restaurants from which to choose, including Okinawan, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, as well as more casual fare.

In July 2023, the resort welcomed the addition of La Blue Vista, a brand-new complex of 10 suite villas nestled on a gentle hill overlooking the bay. All villas feature a private outdoor pool, a hydrotherapy hot tub and a sauna, and offer panoramic views of the ocean.
