“I fractured my knee as I was arriving to Naoshima. A staff member from the hotel (Kooki) took me to the local clinic and he stayed with me me until I was dismissed. The owner of the hotel also came to the clinic to find out how I was doing and asked if I needed anything. I was given a room on the first floor because of my injury even though that was not the original arrangement. The whole staff and the owner made sure that I was ok during my stay, while I was making arrangements to come back home due to my injury. I needed to take the early ferry to Takeshita to come back to Canada, and the owner woke up early to drive me to the ferry terminal. I cannot thank enough the owner and the staff for all their kindness. The hotel is also a very nice place to stay and enjoy Naoshima. I could not go around the island as I hoped for, but I will be back.”
“Forget staying in the overpriced art museums on the island- this is the loveliest, quaintest little place. Super close walk to Miyanoura port and bus stop for island shuttle bus. Many little cafes close by. Supermarket close if you want to cook your own food.
Bread, spreads, tea and coffee etc in fridge and restocked.
Staff super helpful
Clean towels etc daily which I didn't expect
Absolutely loved it”
“Very new clean studio room. Everything was very functional. The room itself is quite small though. Nice firm comfortable beds. Breakfast and dinner were very delicious. Hosts were all very kind and helpful. Good internet connection. We hired bicycles and went to the Chichu museum (a bit of steep hill climb but we managed). Very nice little island and very memorable museums and house projects.”
“The old house and garden were breathtaking and full of a sense of history. Our host was delightful and very helpful. Free use of bicycles and excellent wifi! Warm and spacious apartment a haven after cold winter days exploring Naoshima. ”
