The Halekulani Okinawa announced on Friday that it opened its doors to guests.

Located on the main island of Okinawa, the 360-key hotel is a sister property to the 112-year-old Halekulani Waikiki, which is home to the restaurant House Without a Key, made famous by the Earl Derr Biggers novel of the same name as part of the Charlie Chan series.

Okinawa is in one of the world’s so-called blue zones, an area where the longevity of its inhabitants is considered the highest in the world.

The beachfront property includes 47 suites and five Cliffside villas.  All guest rooms offer beach and sea views and the décor is intended to “bring the ocean inside,” the hotelier said in a statement.

The hotel has four restaurants including Shiroux, which means “white” in Okinawan, fuses traditional French dishes with Japanese ingredients, while Aomi offers traditional Japanese fare. Kingdom is the hotel’s steakhouse while House Without a Key offers lighter fare with an outdoor terrace and lives performances.  The hotel also features a cocktail lounge, Bar Spectra, which offers ocean views from within a hilltop cove.

The SpaHalekulani offers a variety of treatments including a private hot spring.
