Amanemu Shima PeninsulaJapan
Set in the Ise-Shima National Park overlooking Ago Bay, Amanemu is an ultra-luxe resort inspired by traditional ryoken and ancient hospitality rituals. Surrounded by UNESCO pilgrim trails, sacred forests, pearl-fishing and diving culture, and Japan’s most sacred shrine, it offers a rejuvenating wellness experience. The surrounding countryside is ripe for exploration.
Accommodation is in 24 suites and 4 villas, and the design is inspired by a traditional Japanese village. Constructed with Japanese wood, they feature lofty ceilings, large glass windows, outdoor wooden decking areas with daybeds, and indoor private onsen.
The restaurant serves Japanese cuisine, including Matsusaka Wagyu and locally caught seafood, while the lounge-bar has a selection of Japanese craft beers and speciality cocktails.
