Sneak Peek: Jusandi, Ishigaki Island, Japan

  • Jenna Hockema

Situated on 5 acres adjacent to the region’s famous Blue Cave, the new Jusandi resort has opened on the island of Ishigaki in the Okinawa region of Japan. The property—whose name means “sunset”in Okinawan—comprises just four remote villas. It was designed by Norihiko Dan, a Japanese architect famous for his work on high-end commercial buildings in Omotesando, Tokyo. Located on a cliff overlooking the ocean, each of the private villas has forest views, a gazebo, a pool, and access to the property’s restaurant and spa. The Jusandi spa offers treatments using local ingredients, such as indigenous salt, aloe, and hibiscus. Additional activities include scuba diving among the coral reefs, canoeing in the nearby mangrove forests, and boating. Rates start at about $675 a night. (+81.980.88.2833, www.jusandi.jp)
