Villa Rakuen


The elegant Villa Rakuen has all the charm and warm hospitality of a traditional family-run ryokan - and all the luxurious appointments and exemplary service one expects from a high-end luxury establishment. This despite being a brand-new, thoroughly modern facility that opened in the summer of 2010.

With its spectacular panoramic view of the Komoe Kaigan yacht basin and the Seto Inland Sea beyond, Villa Rakuen is a high-end, premium ryokan-style hotel that bespeaks luxury. Its spacious, airy rooms and opulent bathing facilities attract onsen hot spring lovers from all over Japan, especially from the Kansai district around Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe.

With all the facilities of the resort at your disposal, you might feel spoiled for choice; but don't let that stop you from appreciating the serene suites of Villa Rakuen. Feast your senses on some exquisite kaiseki ryori haute cuisine, then sit in the big open-air rotemburo bath on your spacious deck, and let Villa Rakuen's friendly, professional staff serve up the height of omotenashi traditional Japanese hospitality.

And as you gaze at the ships passing to and from the Port of Kobe, feel the cool ocean breezes as they caress your cheek, and listen to the sounds of surf and the calls of birds circling over the harbor - a scene created for contemplation and relaxation.
