Yufuin Ryokan Sansoh Warabino

What kind of onsen ryokan is Yufuin Ryokan Sansoh Warabino?

If you are looking for small luxury modern resort hotels in rich nature, you should stay here.  Everything, such as facilities, food, and ambiance was stylish.  The website looks good, but in reality, the property was much more amazing, dynamic, and magnificent.  The view of nature was truly impressive.  The exterior of buildings is like a contemporary Art Museum.  The ambiance is serene, sophisticated, and tranquil.  The modern interior creates a mature impression.  There are 13 rooms only.  Each room has a wonderful private hot spring.  The spring quality is thick, creamy, and like a skin moisturizer.  If you are a hot spring freak, you must be happy.  The property would be great for couples, families, small groups, or solo travelers.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, samue outfits, pajamas, a complimentary minibar including beer, tea bags, welcome sweets, and a Japanese tea set.  There are MARKS&WEB amenities in the bathroom.  Room service is not available.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide yukatas, meals, and getas *traditional Japanese footwear if you request in advance.  Then free WiFi reception was sometimes patchy when we stayed in March 2019.  Also, we could use a streaming service to watch many kinds of TV dramas and movies in our room.

How about In-house Facilities?

Facilities tend to be the latest.  There is no communal hot spring in-house.   Then Yufuin Ryokan Sansoh Warabino is a universal design.  A wheelchair is available for borrowing.  There are a few steps, but very large on-site.  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.

How about meals?

The Japanese kaiseki food experience was just divine.  The food tends to be sophisticated.  If you are a gourmet, you must be excited.  They have a nice Japanese sake list to complement the meal.  The portion tends to be big.  Don’t forget to bring your empty stomach.  On top of that, some rice balls for a night snack were served after dinner.  There are some nice restaurants in Yufuin, but I would highly recommend having meals on the property.  Dinner starts from 18:00, 18:30, and 19:00.  Breakfast time is from 8:00-10:00.  All meals are served in a restaurant.  There are three private rooms.  You can request if you want to use it.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies or dietary needs.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then don’t forget to visit the café and bar lounge after dinner.  The ambiance was very cozy.  We fully enjoyed drinking wine while listening to jazz.  Also, the night sky was full of stars and a moon that seemed like I could reach out and grab them with my hand.  That’s precious time.

My impressions

All staff is gracious, welcoming, and thoughtful.  They are the loveliest group.  Overall, the property has great value for money if compared to other luxury modern hotels.  One night-stay wouldn’t be enough.  If you are metropolitan, just stay here and enjoy being completely lazy and recharge your batteries.  At last, the best season to stay here would be in the spring or the fall season.  You can see breathtaking views while taking a walk around here.  It’s well worth a visit.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Yufuin Ryokan Sansoh Warabino from the below space.  *If you check-in after 18:00, you need to inform the staff in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Agoda
