Umino Ryotei Okinawa Nakamasou

Umino Ryotei Okinawa Nakamasou

What kind of ryokan is Umino Ryotei Okinawa Nakamasou?

If you are looking for small modern ryokans in Okinawa, you should stay here.  This property just opened in December 2016.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  There are 25 rooms only.  If this is your first stay at ryokans, the property would be nice.  You won’t feel any stress during your stay.  As you may know, most people prefer hotels to ryokans in Okinawa.  That’s why there are few amazing ryokan-style accommodations on the island.  Then, if you love seafood, I would recommend it.  This is one of the gourmet ryokans.  On top of that, the property has great value for money.

On the other hand, if you bring small children, I wouldn’t recommend it as there is no swimming pool on-site.  They may feel disappointed during their stay.  Children must love swimming pools.  Staff can provide meals, slippers, and tableware, etc. if you request in advance.  *One child (ages 6 and under) per adult will be free of charge for co-sleep.

Then, shuttle service is not available including airport limousine bus from Naha Airport.  There is no public transportation when you visit the property.  If you stay here, you need to get a rental car at the airport.  It takes 90min by car.  The location is inconvenient unless you drive a car.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with ocean views.  It seems that some rooms don’t have nice views.  The rooms with peaceful views are modern, spacious, and user-friendly.  Also, you can chill out in a bathroom while viewing a beautiful blue sky and sea.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, a coffee machine with four capsules, pajamas, samue outfits, tea bags, water bottles, and a humidifier, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You might want to buy your necessities before coming here.  The free WiFi reception was good on the property.

How about In-house Facilities?

There are communal indoor baths.  They are not hot springs, though.  They are open from 6:00-10:00, 15:00-23:30.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area.  Then there is no bar, no lounge, no library, no swimming pool, and no private beach, etc.  That’s too bad.  Then Umino Ryotei Okinawa Nakamasou is a universal design and there are some rooms for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you might want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.

How about meals?

The Japanese Kaiseki seafood for dinner and breakfast was simply wonderful.  The portion tends to be average.  If you love fresh seafood, you must be so excited.  The restaurant always offers a lot of seafood from Hokkaido.  It seems that some local guests visit here for dinner only.   All meals are served in a dining area, but not served in each room.  If you don’t like seafood, I wouldn’t recommend it.  You may want to go out for meals if you have a car.  Dinner starts at 18:00.  Breakfast starts between 7:00 and 9:30. *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 it on that day.

My impressions

The staff wouldn’t be sophisticated, but friendly, warm, and polite.  This is Okinawa.  It wouldn’t be a big deal.  If you expect 5-star hotel service, this is not.  Then if you cannot find an English speaker at the front desk, you might want to write on paper what you want to say.  Most of the young staff would understand English sentences.  I hope you don’t mind.  At last, before booking a room, don’t forget to check the weather forecast.  That’s the most important.  Then the best season to stay here would be except the typhoon season in Okinawa.  You may want to avoid staying between Aug and Sep.  Flights often tend to be canceled during the period.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Umino Ryotei Okinawa Nakamasou from the below space.  *You need to check in by 18:00.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
