Set within a semi-tropical climate and
breathtaking scenery of Japan’s southernmost
prefecture of Okinawa, this boutique hotel
is situated on the edge of cliff overlooking
white-sand beach and clear turquoise water.
The design of the hotel imagines a venue
that imbues site’s natural surrounding into
hospitality spaces, making the natural
beauty part of an architectural element in
and outside the hotel.
