Awashima Hotel

If you are looking for small luxury resort hotels with Mt.Fuji Views, I think you should stay at Awashima Hotel.  The hotel is located on a very small island.  You can see an amazing view of the mountain in good weather while relaxing at the property.  We felt that the luxury and down to earth at once.  This is like a museum.   Awashima Hotel would be great for couples, family or groups, but not solo travelers.  Once we entered the lobby, the staff immediately escorted us to a beautiful room with a breathtaking view of the ocean and Mt.Fuji.  If you are going to stay here, you may want to request a room on a high floor.  Facilitates tend to be outdated, but the housekeeping was excellent.  The free WiFi reception was good in the property.  All of the amenities are taken care of including minimum toiletries, yukatas, bathrobes, sweatshirts, sweatpants, walking shoes, and a Japanese tea set.  *You need to inform the staff of your shoe and dress size in advance.  Also, there are skincare amenities for men and women in the bathroom.  DVD players, baby cribs, and air cleaners are available for borrowing if you request in advance.  Turn down service is not available.  There is no convenience store on the island.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  There is no vending machine in-house.  Then tap water in your room is spring water.  It’s drinkable, fresh, and tasty.  The spring water quality is soft, smooth, and moist.  *Basically, tap water is drinkable everywhere in Japan, but not so tasty and bit smells like chlorine.  Then Awashima Hotel is a universal design.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then there are indoor and outdoor communal hot springs in-house.  If the weather is fine, you can see a peaceful Mt.Fuji while soaking in the outdoor baths.  That’s an amazing experience.  The communal baths are located a bit away from the main building.  You need to walk for a while.  All of them are open from 5:00 to 24:00.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal ones.  There is no room with private hot springs.  Then there are French, Japanese, and Teppanyaki restaurants in-house.  We tried French cuisine for dinner.  The food was just divine.  They have a nice wine list to complement the meal.  If you are a gourmet, you should try it.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Also, we tried the buffet-style western food for breakfast.  The food presentation wouldn’t be extensive, but each dish was high standard.  Complimentary champagne is available during breakfast.  That’s a great service.  The breakfast is between 7:00 and 10:00.  Then there wouldn’t be restaurants around the property on the small island.  You may want to book a room including meals.  Then all staff tends to be sophisticated, professional, and friendly.  They are the loveliest group.  You can experience signature Japanese hospitality with a personal touch.  Overall, it was truly above expectations.  For the price range, the performance of the service, facilities, ambiance, and food, were perfect.  We would come back again.  Then access to the property would be easy from Shinjuku, Yokohama, or Mishima Station.  You can take an Awashima express bus from the front of Shinjuku Center Building, the number 2 bus stop of Yokohama Station’s West exit, or Ichigao Station.  The bus fare is JPY3,500 from Shinjuku or JPY3,000 from Yokohama or Ichigao Station.  You need to book it in advance.  Alternatively, free shuttle service is available from Mishima Station.  It takes 30min by car from the station to a boarding Point, then get on a free shuttle ship.  It takes just 5min.  You need to book it in advance.  Then if you want to chill out at the property in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late March, late April to early May, and the end of year and New Year holiday.  At last, don’t forget to visit Awashima marine park nearby if you bring children.  You can get complimentary tickets for the marine park if you stay at the hotel.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Awashima Hotel from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check-in and out times 14:00/11:00  Check Availability and Pricing for Awashima Hotel on or Agoda
