We have some news extraordinaire. While lemonades were being served throughout the Holiday season, this one plush hotel chain was busily mushrooming its outfit in two major, posh cities, bang opposite each other, globally speaking! Well, it looks like from now, the sun will never set for the Ritz-Carlton. Let’s look at Ritz-Carlton, Okinawa, the first luxury resort of its kind to have opened in Japan. The Ritz-Carlton chose the less known and relatively unexplored tropical island of Okinawa and gave it a refined sophistication that it was much looking forward to. An island that has been the secret getaway of Japanese visitors for generations; it is not just the relative newness that is called Ritz- it’s also its natural golf courses and pristine emerald waters that are perfect for waterborne activities. Soaked in the Okinawan concept of hospitality or “gusuku,” and perfected by the Ritz-Carlton Ritz-Carlton, Okinawa reflects nothing but pure elegance.
Spirited in landscaping, contemporary in architecture, and with just the right spritz of mystical Okinawa- the Ritz-Carlton, Okinawa promises to offer the finest personal service and facilities in a warm yet refined ambiance. Set in a lush milieu that gives it a castle-like look, which is also the meaning of “gusuku,” this hotel gives its visitors a taste of the world. From Italian fine dining to local sea-food and Okinawan Beef- you’ll have a choice unless you are lost in options. Full? Unwind. Located on a short stroll through landscaped gardens is The Ritz-Carlton Spa by ESPA, in its own separate enclave. Combining the essence of ancient and modern Chinese, Indian, European, and Balinese spa cultures, it uses the luxury ESPA products that harness the best of nature’s essential oils, botanicals, and marine supplements. The Spa also features four treatment rooms, four dry treatment rooms, outdoor Cabanas offering Shiatsu and the Heat Experience.
