Island Resort Hotel


In a designated scenic zone and environmental preservation district on a small island near Okinawa, this new hotel is geared to vacationers seeking to escape the urban life. Amenities include a spa, upscale retail and restaurants. To harmonize with the environment, minimize impact and reduce the building’s apparent mass, a starfish-like plan emanates from a central lobby. A low profile is maintained, and the building is sited to provide views to the dramatic sunsets over the East China Sea from nearly three-quarters of the rooms. Rooms feature clean lines, natural materials and contemporary furnishings.
