The New Awaji is neither "old and traditional" nor "brand new and cool". I guess the building is 1980's vintage. It is in very good condition but the style is showing its age. Do not be put off by this. The facilities are very good; the views are spectacular; the food is commendable; and the service is delightful. We spent... More

We weren't too sure what to expect, especially with the Kaiseki in room dining, but we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a private onsen suite on the 11th floor and it was awesome. We could sit in our private Onsen on the... More

Just spent a weekend at the Villa Rakuen on Awaji Island. Fantastic experience! Top notch service and attention to guest needs. Villa Rakuen is a contemporary ryokan that is part of a larger hotel complex. Excellent cuisine. Loved the tatami room and the outdoor patio with our own private hot tub set in the flagstone patio. Spectacular sunrise every morning... More
