Set within the Ise-Shima National Park, in the southwestern region of the island of Honshu—Amanemu overlooks the gorgeous Ago Bay (Bay of Pearls) and shines bright through its minimalistic and modern Japanese interiors, relaxing thermal-spring baths and a 22,000 sq. feet spa offering holistic treatments with lush garden views. The spacious suites and villas feature private onsen and terraces, finished in bamboo, wood and pavilion-style structures. Immersive experiences such as visiting the shrine of Ise to the Kumano Kodo pilgrim paths can be organized through the resort's expert therapists. Other excursions include fishing the bay, golf and sunset cruises along the islets of the Shima Peninsula.
