Ritz-Carlton Opens Okinawa Resort

Ritz-Carlton has opened its first luxury resort in Japan, on the tropical island of Okinawa, which features championship golf courses and is surrounded by waters that are ideal for waterborne activities.

The Okinawan concept of hospitality or ‘gusuku’, which translates as ‘castle’ or ‘guesthouse’, has been reflected throughout the property. “The new Ritz-Carlton resort embodies this spirit through its landscaping and contemporary architectural design, which extensively features the Shurijo face motifs, distinctive red clay roof tiles, white walls and holy water ponds,” said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operations Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
