Hoshino Resorts announced plans for a new resort in Okinawa.

The Hoshinoya Okinawa will open in Yomitan Village and will be the second Hoshinoya property in Okinawa Prefecture after the Hoshinoya Taketomi Island, which opened in 2012.

The new 100-key resort will be modeled on the ancient fortresses – Okinawan gusuku castles – that dotted the subtropical islands. A Ryuku limestone rock wall replicating the stone barricade of such a fortress will encircle the resort.

Guest rooms will have ocean views, while a 2,150-square-foot (200-square meter) suite will have its own private pool.

Hoshino currently operates three brands, Hoshinoya, Risonare, and Kai. The hotelier’s first hotel, Hoshinoya Karuizawa, located in the Japanese Alps, opened in 1914. The company’s hotels are known for eco-friendly policies, the use of organic local produce in its restaurants, and for being self-sufficient in energy usage.
