Following a stay at Benese House in Naoshima (very nice) we traveled to Muroto Misaki. I have to say this hotel was a disappointment. The physical facilities are really poor.... stains, cracks, chipped paint, rust everywhere. Bathroom amenities are generic. Towels and linen are sub-standard. Furniture and other decorations are mediocre. Nice view but the hotel totally lacks charm. Service... More

This hotel ranks a 5 for everything - service, spa, dinner and breakfast, and room. First, the service. Check-in in the comfort of your own room with an attentive staff. All rooms face the sea - amazing view of the sunset with huge crashing waves against the numerous boulders that line the coast. The awesome part is the entire length... More

Local tea is served to keep... More

The dinner is now Italian rather than French, but the reality is it's Japanese with a hint of Italian. Many raw dishes.... I can't say that raw urchins are yummy and tuna always feels like it needs cooking.... I didn't believe that anybody could get on the sea wall, but no our neighbours decided that they would do their stretches... More

utoco is really way out there, about a 90-min car ride from the kochi airport. it's a leisurely ride since the driver only goes maybe 35-40mph and there's a small stop for snack/restroom break. upon arrival, the spa is a simple white building with lots of windows resembling a ship. it's minimalist chic without attitude, crisp and fluffy beds, most...
