Benesse House Naoshima

Relish in an island getaway that blends together art, nature, and architecture. 

At the avant-garde Benesse House Hotel, you have the freedom to stay in the art museum, park, or at the beach. No matter what you choose, there is art in every space to evoke new emotions, and precipitate inspiration. 

The remoteness of Naoshima island suggests an Elysian paradise, unspoiled by mass tourism. Explore shrines embedded within rice fields, or sit by the sandy beach for contemplation, watching waves crash to shore. 

Your stay at the hotel will guarantee a physical rejuvenation. You will also embark on an artistic journey that will renew all your senses. This is breezy island-living at its best.
