This place has very few Americans. And here's why: Arima is an onsen town that many Japanese locals love. It is small humble town that has nothing glitzy. But oh, the "golden" mineral water and the exquisite service of everyone there in the town and the hotel made this one day here at the hotel our highlight of the 8-day...

While we are on a family holiday we couldn't resist the temptation to meet with some suppliers as well. They invited us to Kobe and we stayed at the aroma grand hotel with their families and ours. It was an amazing experience for us and everything was beautiful. I wish we could stay longer and would love to come back....

The thing that made this stay so memorable is their high quality service & facilities. Our room and the outdoor onsen have spectacular view. After the onsen, there are complimentary use of massage chairs & drinks. The room is clean and huge. I really enjoyed the dinner in tatami room and the waitress was very polite. She explained the dishes...

Whenever I think of a place to really relax with great onsen, great service and amazing food, I still think of this place!! Maybe it was because I went when I was very stressed or it was the first time that I had gone to an onsen hotel. The experience totally swept me away, and each time I go to...

The pools were extremely good with an amazing view, the sushi and the other foods of our dinner which we had in our room was VERY delicious. Waiters were all very kind and smiling. The only thing I can complain about was the breakfast! There was not enough food for foreigners😊 I'd love to see something additional for my next...

Even though the weather was still warm, I was disappointed that the swimming pool was already closed for the season. Because their "naked" policy, I did not use the hot spring spa, but my tour guide encouraged us to tour the spa and hot spring pool. The spa looked fancy. Breakfast buffet was good. No complaint for bed sheets or...

Visited this hotel around 10 years ago ... was an EXCELLENT hotel with EXCELLENT food and service at that time !! Visited again this year. The physical condition of the hotel was kept quite well ... only that both the food and service quality had lost some of its luster (especially the Kaiseki style dinner) !! ... but yet, comparatively,...

returned to Arima onsen since 2004. This time we picked this onsen hotel and it was a right choice. Good location - the premise is up on a small hill and thus have a good panoramic view of the whole Arima onsen area. It has a huge garden with blossoming sakura when we visited. Good open air onsen ! Good...
