A place to strip away all the unnecessary, and simply give in to the blue sky and the calm, mirror-like Seto Inland Sea. Take in and enjoy the luxury of total tranquility found only here. Gathering all the abundant legacy of Japanese nature, history and culture . A new spot in tranquil Setouchi is born. A luxurious hotel with 7 all-suite rooms built and designed by Tadao Ando, world-renowned architect with numerous awards. Recently the “Setouchi International Art Festival” has been drawing an attention from around the world. Naoshima is the central venue of the festival and houses Tadao Ando’s work from “Chichu Art Museum”, “Benesse” and “Ando Museum”. Our Setouchi Retreat Aonagi joined this lineup, representing Seto Inland in Ando’s architectural masterpieces. A once familiar art museum was renovated and transformed into a small luxury hotel here in the Seto Inland Sea.
Our “Kaiseki” cuisine, a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner, is known for its meticulous preparation and beautiful presentation by our top chefs. Most of the ingredients are carefully selected from local farms, and our sea food comes straight from the Seto Inland Sea in the same day morning to your table.
