Okinawa – Asia’s Hawaii – Apr 2018

Okinawa is a warm, sunny and friendly place surrounded by beautiful beaches and greenery. It’s blue green waters attracted us to visit. Here’s an account of how we got there, where we stayed and what we did…


Japan airlines business class to Tokyo and a domestic flight to Okinawa approx 7hr from Singapore. Snacks served upon take off, breakfast served before landing

Internal flight – also JAL

Economy class – approx 2.5hr only non alcoholic drinks served


Aqua citta – no frills hotel, small room but provided most amenities we needed.

Marriott Okinawa resort – huge room overlooking the pool and sea. Ample space with indoor/ outdoor pool, gym. Good for family with kids

Hyatt regency – nice and classy hotel with small gym, outdoor pool and jacuzzi

Ryukyu Senagajima onsen – by far the nicest hotel with in room onsen, public outdoor onsen free for guests and in-house shiatsu massage available. Total bliss with beautiful view from the room.
