Busena Terrace
Okinawa

Located well away from the urban sprawl of Naha city on the main island of Okinawa, the Busena Terrace is a fairly large but nonetheless characterful hotel. Stunning panoramic ocean views can be admired from the spacious atrium as well as the private balconies of the rooms.

Situated on a narrow peninsula, both sides offer aquamarine ocean views, but it is the west-facing deluxe rooms and maisonettes which provide the best panoramas. There are also a select number of private villas situated in their own nook a couple of minutes' buggy ride away from the main hotel, which are perfect for honeymooners and those looking for complete seclusion. The interior design is clean and bright with a strong emphasis on neutral colours. This tasteful palette successfully brings out the vibrant colour of the surrounding nature outside and provides a calm atmosphere in which to unwind on the tropical island.

The hotel’s beautiful private beach is a real slice of paradise and makes for the ideal spot in which to enjoy snorkelling among the exotic fish and coral found here. Another plus of this hotel is its impressive range and organisation of watersports, as well as its large sculpted swimming pools, which are relaxing even in high season as Japanese children are generally very well behaved. Tennis courts and a mini golf course are also nearby for sporty guests and for those in need of a more relaxing activity, choose between yoga or indulging in a treatment in their spa, such as a ryukyu herbal detox.

The range and quality of restaurants also stands out from the crowd, with a vast lunchtime buffet selection from across the spectrum of international cuisine, and a charming French restaurant on the terrace. If one is not temped by French cuisine for dinner, there are a wealth of other options – a main restaurant ‘Fanuan’, a teppanyaki restaurant, a traditional Japanese restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, an Italian restaurant, a seafood restaurant and a beach side barbecue restaurant, where one can watch the sunset.

Couples may prefer to stay in the Club Suites also featured here on our website, but the Busena Terrace main hotel is better suited for families and those who like to mingle with the other (mostly Far Eastern) guests.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
