Hoshinoya Taketomi
Yaeyama Islands

Hoshinoya, a luxury hotel group with a distinctive approach of modernizing traditional properties in a Japanese way, have excelled themselves with their new resort on the tiny jewel of Taketomi island. Secluded and luxurious private villas with gardens have been built in keeping with the stone walls and red tile roofs of the houses in the local village, and are scattered around the central swimming pool and restaurant area. The island is so small that the white sand beaches are only a stroll away – or take the ox-drawn carts that provide the only local transport on the island. The larger island of Ishigaki with its busier beaches and watersports is a short ferry ride away, providing the perfect balance of action and romantic seclusion.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.
