"Even in the middle of the pandemic, we have our guests repeat and stay overnight. Some guests spend consecutive nights, and everyone was just taking their time and relaxing," Ms. Arai recalls. Atami is abundant with natural blessings given from Sagami Bay. With the boundless ocean, the calm weather, and the excellent hot spring quality, The Hiramatsu Hotels & Resorts Atami has been one of the most popular hot spring resorts, loved by many people including literary figures of the time.
"The pandemic gave us the time to rethink about what affluence truly is to us and what makes us happy. After the pandemic occurred, I think our guests are looking for something like not caring about tomorrow's schedule, spending time to relax with no plans, eating delicious food, soaking in the hot springs, overlooking the views of the ocean, mountains, and nature with family and friends, or even alone, and simply having time to relax and relieve their stress," says Ms. Arai.
"Can we really receive the honor? We are just too grateful," Ms. Arai smiles. Even during this global crisis, The Hiramatsu Hotels & Resorts Atami keeps entertaining and giving our guests the best of the best of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. They keep making "The Hiramatsu lovers" even more.
