Okinawa is known for its tropical climate, broad beaches, and expansive coral reefs. All these elements are on full display at the comfortable, wellness-focused Terrace Club at Busena. The multifaceted spa Wellness Thalasso takes center stage in the resort with its multiple spa treatments, specialty pool, and dry sauna. The spacious rooms feature a combination of cream colors and wood furnishings. They are comfortably appointed and offer awe-inspiring views of the South China Sea, Cape Busena, or Nago Bay. Guests are invited to enjoy gourmet meals at the resort’s signature restaurant, Fine Dining, or cocktails from its Library Lounge & Bar. Cafés at the spa and outdoor pool serve light bites and refreshing drinks, and the surrounding natural beauty only adds to the intoxicating recipe for relaxation offered by The Terrace Club at Busena.
Spa: Some resorts have a limited array of treatments — not the Terrace Club. Between massages, customized treatments, and a specially designed treatment pool, guests are certain to find just what they need.
Ocean Scenery: Okinawa is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs, which can be enjoyed by scuba diving, an underwater observatory, or a glass-bottomed boat tour — all of which the resort provides for guests.
Location: The resort is but a 20-minute drive from the Churaumi Aquarium and Nakijin Castle.
Matching a cream color palette with wooden furniture, The Terrace Club's beach-chic rooms perfectly blend luxury and comfort. Guests can open their large sliding doors to let the ocean breeze come pouring in or enjoy a cup from their Nespresso machine while watching their 47-inch LCD television. In accordance with local customs, all the rooms feature "Hollywood" twin beds that have been pushed closely together instead of king beds, but don't let this fool you — they are still made of top-quality materials. Bathrooms include a shower, bathtub, and a built-in minibar. In-room dining is also available.
Although the smallest room at the resort, the Club Deluxe still boasts an impressive 177 square feet of space. There is an inviting couch in front of the room's flat screen television and an indulgent, oversized daybed atop the room’s terrace from which guests can lazily gaze out across the South China Sea. There are also the Club Deluxe Sunset and Club Deluxe Ocean accommodations for guests who want a view of Cape Busena or Nago Bay, respectively.
Situated on the resort’s highest floors, this room offers stunning vistas of Nago Bay. Especially designed for family reunions, gatherings with friends, or longer stays, this accommodation covers 272 square feet, features two separate, spacious sleeping quarters, and a generous 10-meter-long terrace.
The facilities at the Terrace Club at Busena are all about relaxation. Whether that mean specialized spa treatments in their massage-jet equipped Thalasso pool, taking a nap around the tranquil Outdoor Pool, or reading a book from their luxurious library. The resort is geared toward relaxation, and its facilities reflect that.
An assortment of books, magazines, and daily newspapers are available in this haven of relaxation. With ocean vistas and comforting furniture, it is a tempting space to spend a lazy afternoon.
This expansive, freshwater pool looks out over the ocean and is surrounded by deckchairs and parasols. It is a perfect place to take a nap or unwind with a book.
The Wellness Thalasso features a relaxing spa, pool, gym, dry sauna, and café area. Guests are invited to meet with therapists to devise a personalized wellness plan that is specifically suited to their needs, whether that means massages and spa treatments or jet-message-aided Kinesitherapy. In the Thalasso pool, seawater from Cape Busena is heated to a comfortable range, and a variety of massaging jets, aeration, and gentle currents create a number of zones for both aquarobic exercise and relaxation. The gym is specially crafted for full-body, low-impact workouts and is flooded with sunlight from floor-to-ceiling windows.
The resort’s gastronomical experience is anchored by Fine Dining, a posh restaurant reserved for guests that serves combinations of delicate flavors originating from France, Italy, and Okinawa. There are also the Thalasso Café and Poolside Bar, which offer a selection of light bites and refreshing drinks. Finally, there is the Library Lounge & Bar, where guests can enjoy expertly mixed cocktails while looking out on Nago Bay.
The resort's signature restaurant is exclusively available to guests staying at The Terrace Club at Busena and suggests a smart, casual dress code. Blending French, Italian, and Okinawan flavors, these dishes are crafted with health and wellness in mind.
Featuring stunning views of Nago Bay, guests can enjoy a refreshing nightcap or leisurely cup of afternoon tea from this elegant spot.
Directly adjacent the outdoor pool, this is a perfect place to enjoy cocktails, soft drinks, and light bites while lounging beneath the sun.
