Japan Hotels: Estinate Hotel, Naha, Okinawa
Estinate Hotel - A Perfect Place to Stay in Naha (Okinawa) Japan for Those with a Wanderlust
By Christopher KL Lau
As boutique hotels become ever more popular and in demand with tourists seeking new experiences, Estinate Hotel leads the way in Naha in terms of style, design and interior. Estinate has soon become a welcome presence in the crowded Okinawa holiday island market.
The name of Estinate Hotel is cleverly derived from the word "Destination" and the fact that a traveller's journey is never complete, as the world is now so interconnected, that people have a continuing wanderlust. Their journey is an ongoing process of change and personal development.
As you enter the premises, you really do feel that you have set foot in a voguish and contemporary venue. The check-in area merges with the restaurant and bar so there is a constant feeling of positive energy amid that Okinawan chilled out vibe.
The architecture reflects the 'wanderer' feel the hotel successfully creates and there are exhibits in the form of mini art pieces and artifacts dotted around the interior and reception.
The restaurant and bar follow the same relaxed blueprint. They serve a delicious choice of breakfast in the form of pancakes and traditional Okinawan fare as well as a wide choice of drinks and food that continues into lunch and dinner.
Estinate Hotel is about five to ten minutes' walk from Kokusai Dori ("International Street") so it is quick and convenient for those who seek to explore and sample the wide variety of entertainment options and restaurants available in downtown Naha.
The Miebashi monorail station is also close by, so direct access from Naha Airport is guaranteed as is speedy connection to other tourist destinations in Naha and the rest of Okinawa's main island.
The staff at Estinate Hotel are polite, keen and will answer and cater to all guests' needs with unbounded energy and politeness. In keeping with simple chic, the rooms are clean and comfortable yet simple in layout with an easy on the eye color scheme. Hotel Estinate can be described as a mixture of hip, cool and contemporary yet also homely and comfortable.
This is definitely a place to check out if you stay in Naha, Okinawa in Japan! Highly recommended!
