Sankara Hotel & Spa is 5 Star Luxury Hotel in Yakushima, Japan

Consulting with a butler about your stay in Yakushima will be your first step at Sankara hotel. Whatever your interests may be, give into the relaxing flow of the island—walking in the ancient rainforest, looking for a delectable meal unique to the island or just enjoying a luxury vacation. Leave your burdens behind, let purifying Yakushima cleanse your soul.

A magnet for nature lovers, Sankara Hotel & Spa is a secluded retreat set between mountains, cedar forests and the sea. An idyllic spot perfectly placed for exploring this unique island or for simply relaxing, Sankara has a wonderfully indulgent spa, a superb French restaurant with an open kitchen, an extensive library and a varied selection of stylish suites and villas.

Relax on a sun bed by the pool and capture the essence of Sankara Hotel & Spa. The glorious granite mountains in the background, the uninterrupted sea views and the sounds of wildlife in the surrounding forest and orchards are constant reminders that this is a magical place. The suites and villas are havens of style with high ceilings and the use of dark cedar wood. For the ultimate relaxation, visit the spa for a Thai-style herbal heat treatment.

Discover the island’s rugged wilderness. Hike through the UNESCO listed mountainous forests or take the walking trail to Shiratani Unsuikyo Ravine and see the Sasuga Otoshi waterfall, ancient cedar trees and the island’s unique species of deer and monkeys. Take a day trek to witness the famous Jomon Sugi, a cedar tree that is thought to be up to 7,000 years old. Guests can also enjoy observing the famous sea turtles who come to lay their eggs on the island from May to August.

Once back at Sankara Hotel & Spa, end the day savouring the delights of French cuisine in the restaurant, Okas.
