Yufuin Bettei Itsuki

What kind of onsen villa is Yufuin Bettei Itsuki?

This is like a luxury vacation home in a tranquil environment.  If you are looking for modern villa-type rooms with private hot springs, I would recommend it.  Each room has a private hot spring.  There is no communal hot spring, though.  There are 13 rooms only.  We didn’t see other guests during our stay.  The property completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  Perhaps, if you are a gourmet, you must be happy.  This is one of the well-known auberge properties in Yufuin.  On top of that, complimentary wine, beer, Japanese sake, shochu, and fresh juice, etc., are available during meals.  In particular, they have many different kinds of wine.  The property would be great for couples, families, groups, or solo travelers.

Is the location easy to access?

The property is located in a residential area.  It would be hard to find it if this is your first visit.  You may want to get a taxi from Yufuin Station.  It takes just 5min by car.  It costs 800JPY.  It takes 20min on foot.  A free shuttle service is not available.  This is also child-friendly.  Staff can provide meals, yukatas, and futons at an additional charge if you request in advance.  Also, I noticed that there was a diaper changing station in the restaurant.

How are the rooms?

Most of the rooms have small kitchens, microwave ovens, and tableware, etc.  The ambiance is serene tranquil and relaxed.  The rooms are functional, user-friendly, and cozy.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, a coffee machine, water bottles, and green tea bags, etc.  There were skincare products in the bathroom.  The Free Wi-Fi reception was excellent.  There is no vending machine.  There is a convenience store within 15min walking distance.

How about In-house Facilities?

Yufuin Bettei Itsuki is almost 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 entrance.  Actually, once you enter your room, you wouldn’t need to move around as there is a private hot spring. Unluckily, there is no communal hot spring, no lounge, no library, etc.

How about meals?

The French-Japanese Fusion cuisine using a lot of local ingredients was wonderful.   The food tends to be sophisticated.  If you love beef, I would recommend Bungo beefsteak dinner at an additional charge in advance.  That’s amazing.  Then you can choose either Western or Japanese cuisine for breakfast.  All meals are served in a private room in the restaurant.  Also, there are 2 types of private rooms for meals, Japanese-style rooms, or Western-style ones.  If you want to request a western-style private room, you may want to inform the staff in advance.  Then if you have dinner on the property, you need to check-in by 19:00.  Dinner starts from 18:00 or 19:00.  Breakfast starts from 8:00, 8:30, or 9:00.  *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.  Alternatively, you can go out for dinner as there are some restaurants around Yufuin Station, but you may need to get a TAXI.
