A palm-fringed haven on Japan’s Miyako island
At Shigira Bayside Suite Allamanda tropical flowers and trees frame the balconies, terraces, pools, and cabanas dotted around the hotel. Suites are simply but elegantly furnished, and feature private pools, daybeds, whirlpools, terraces, and gazebos for a taste of tropical island luxury. See if you can spot sea turtles as you unwind on your terrace and look across the glistening ocean – famed for its bright blue colour – with cocktail in hand. Or spend time relaxing in the warm waters of the hotel’s onsen –breath-taking, amber coloured natural hot springs. The resort’s seven restaurants can satisfy any appetite, serving inventive Japanese cuisine, Italian classics, and relaxed ocean view brunches. While the Allamanda lounge is the perfect place to spend an evening stargazing in this designated ‘dark sky’ area.

Miyako is renowned for having the best beaches in Japan – so it’s the perfect spot for a barefoot stroll. Dive into the ocean and explore the coral reef that surrounds you or try your hand at bonito fishing. If you prefer to keep two feet on the ground, cross the Irabu bridge which connects Miyako and Irabu, and is the longest in Japan. While Makiyama Observatory is the place to discover an uninterrupted view of the emerald ocean.
Enjoy your stay!
