ホテル川久 Hotel Kawakyu

Hotel Kawakyu / Wakayama Shirahama・Ryujin 76


Hotel Kawakyu is a building that towers over Nanki-Shirahama adrift in the exotic that will make one think of a medieval European castle. The thoughts of various architects, painters, and other experts of crafts and skills from other parts of the world have been set into this building.

View the ocean, surround yourself in art, and satisfy your palate with gourmet meals. It's the kind of luxury resort where you can fill both body and mind by spending time soothing yourself here at the hot springs.

In Shirahama fashion all guest rooms are ocean view suites that reverberate with the background sounds of the small waves in the sea. One may relax in the comfort of any of the spacious 74 rooms ranging from 60~247㎡. We hope you have an elegant time.

"Shirahama no Yu" is one of the three largest and oldest hot springs of Japan. The indoor spa and outdoor spa "Shifu", that uses Takano yellow plum pine, and "Yusai", that uses domestic granite, will also fill ours hearts.

The special element that fills the heart is also contained within the food. Local seasonal Wakayama bounties from the mountains and sea are used liberally to create masterpieces. We hope you enjoy the pride of our hotel's breakfast: the popular "King Buffet".

Please look forward to experiencing the extraordinary surrounded in art that seems as if it is stolen and forgetting the mundane.

It was very gorgeous and I was able to meet the extraordinary. The room was spacious and spacious. It was a maisonette room, but it was inconvenient that there was a washroom on the second floor. The venue in Boule was cold and the water temperature was low. As pool and hot spring jacuzzi were water, we could not enter either. One friend had a birthday so I took a souvenir and a commemorative photo. I would like to ask you again.

The bath is really 5, but the hot spring salon on the 2nd floor was very good. I thought it would fall a little because the large public bath on the first floor would be compared to the hot spring salon. But neither is a good one

Read more プレジデンシャルSPAスイートの潮香に宿泊しました。 お部屋は綺麗でとても広く、大満足です。 またインペリアルラウンジもお酒飲み放題、軽食食べ放題でとても良かったです。 夕食、朝食共には王様のビュッフェで予約していましたが、それとは別に特別メニューが用意されており、この特別メニューはとても美味しかったです。 しかし、楽しみにしていた王様のビュッフェは王様とは名ばかりで、松茸の土瓶蒸しは写真では立派な松茸が入っていますが、実際は松茸のかけらが1つ…これが松茸かな??というものでした。 また、松茸ご飯も楽しみにしていたのですが、こちらに関しては松茸ご飯自体がありませんでした… 毛蟹の蟹味噌も楽しみにしていましたが、食べてみるととても臭く、食べられませんでした… 特別メニューがあったので、まだ良かったですが、これがなかったらお腹いっぱいにはなりませんでした… 接客ですが、高級旅館やホテルは駐車はスタッフの方がやってくださいますが、ここはやってくださらなかったです。 また、最後お会計の際にInstagram投稿キャンペーンをやっていたので、それに関して不明点があり、質問したのですが、お会計の方が分からなかったのか、途中で代わったおばさんのスタッフさん(Aさんだったかな?)その方は笑顔もなく、非常に冷たく、私の質問とは全く異なる回答をされ、この人はInstagramのこともこのキャンペーンについてもあまり理解されてないのでは??と思いました。 最後の最後に不愉快な思いをしました。 お部屋は気に入ったので、またお邪魔したいと思います。

I stayed at Shioka, Presidential SPA Suite. The rooms are clean and very spacious and very satisfying. The Imperial Lounge was also very good with all-you-can-drink and all-you-can-eat snacks. Both dinner and breakfast were booked at the King's buffet, but there was a special menu available, and this special menu was very delicious. However, the king's buffet I've been looking forward to is just the name of the king, and the mushroom steamed matsutake mushroom has a fine matsutake mushroom in the picture, but in fact there is only one piece of matsutake mushroom ... is this a matsutake mushroom? ? It was that. I also looked forward to matsutake rice, but there was no matsutake rice itself ... I was looking forward to the miso miso, but when I tried it, it smelled so bad that I could n’t eat it… There was a special menu, so it was still good, but without this I wouldn't be full ... Although it is a customer service, the staff at the luxury inns and hotels did the parking, but did not do here. Also, since I was doing an Instagram posting campaign at the time of the last check, there was an uncertain point about that, I asked a question, but I did not know the checkout, the aunt staff who changed on the way (A He was n’t smiling, very cold, and answering very differently from my question, isn't this person well understood about Instagram and the campaign? ? I thought. I felt unpleasant at the very end. I like the room so I would like to bother you again.
