    The staff were awesome from the moment we arrived, really welcoming and helpful. We used the hot springs to relaxed quite a bit and really enjoyed our stay. The food was also incredible so glad we booked breakfast and dinner.
  • Carmen
    The food was fabulous! The facility for the Onsen was great!
  • Veronica
