Rich and rare, both in the local environment and interior character, Sankara Hotel & Spa is the uberge-style resort dedicated to caring for its surroundings on the UNESCO World Heritage island of Yakushima. A magnet for nature lovers, Sankara Hotel & Spa is a secluded retreat set between mountains, cedar forests and the sea. An idyllic spot perfectly placed for exploring this unique island or for simply relaxing, Sankara has a wonderfully indulgent spa, a superb French restaurant with an open kitchen, an extensive library and a varied selection of stylish suites and villas.
29 suites and villas are havens of style with high ceilings and the use of dark cedar wood. All room and bathroom amenities are originally produced with your body and the local environment in mind.
After hiking this incredible nature habitat from end to end, recline by the outdoor pool, or in the Thai-inspired spa. One might be satisfied at this point, wondrous scenery and luxuriated body and all, but there is more. Oh … much more.
At Ayana, casual fare is not limited to French, but it is limited to the very best ingredients. For something that seems to fit a little better with the island look and feel, look no further than Okas, where Yakushima alone inspires a tropical meal sure to send you to bed feeling a local. A very satisfied local.
