Hyatt’s first resort in Japan – on its own island

The resort is the latest development on the beach and world heritage island of Okinawa.

A tiny island in the East China Sea is now the location of the latest luxury Hyatt Regency.

The 344-room Hyatt Regency Seragaki Island Okinawa is located in Onnason, one of Okinawa’s beach destinations. Situated at the centre of the island’s northernmost and southernmost points, it makes it a suitable base to explore the area.

Guests can experience the rugged scenery of Yanbaru to the north or the many UNESCO World Heritage sites in the central and southern areas of Okinawa.

“We will maximise our island location to provide a novel, one-stop experience that guests will want to return to again and again,” said the island hotel’s general manager Hiroko Noguchi.

Besides the views, the resort – which is taking reservations for its first arrivals from September 1 – has interiors designed by the Hashimoto Yukio Design Studio, inspired by the traditions of Okinawan culture.

The resort will have six dining outlets featuring locally grown produce – including the fresh catch of the day from the Okinawan waters.

Also on site – a chapel that can seat up to 40 people, with a ten-metre aisle toward the sea, specifically aimed at the wedding market.
