Set on a leafy, 60-hectare hillside with views of the Kirishima mountain range, this is a luxe, tranquil resort with just 5 airy deluxe villas.

Each villa has furnished decks offering scenic views and private, open-air baths with geothermal water. Some add living rooms and indoor hot spring tubs.

Sourced from almost a kilometer below ground, the water arrives in abundance at the perfect bathing temperature. This rarity is known as gensen kakenagashi (overflowing natural hot spring) and is the most revered of all onsen types.
