Sea Hotel Shimahana Attraction
The charm of Umi no Hotel Shimahana lies in the fact that you can fully enjoy the famous Sumoto hot spring, which has its source at the foot of Mt.
On the top floor spa floor, there is a bath with a panoramic view of the Kitan Straits and a private Jacuzzi open-air bath, and a bedrock bath is also available in the private Jacuzzi open-air bath.

After bathing, we also recommend thalassotherapy, a marine therapy born in France that uses the blessings of the sea.
Utilizing the resources of the sea, such as seawater, seaweed, and sea mud, it activates cells from within the body and enhances the body’s natural healing power.
Private room space experiences are also available, and men are welcome to use them, which is great for couples!
It balances the energies of the mind and body, and you can feel the deep effects through the five senses. Please come and experience it for yourself.
