Nestled directly on the white sandy beach in Nago, Okinawa's popular resort area, Best Western Resort Okinawa Kouki Beach is an idyllic destination for an affordable beach holiday. Located on the west coast of Okinawa's main island, all of guest rooms have private balconies overlooking the turquoise sea, with Minna Island and Motobu Peninsula in the distance. The white walls and bright nature of the rooms offer a sense of spaciousness, while high-tech facilities including free Wi-Fi ensure that all guests can stay connected. The hotel features a restaurant that serves daily breakfast and sunset dinners, which can be enjoyed either indoors or under the stars. For relaxing leisure getaways and business breaks with a difference, Best Western Resort Okinawa Kouki Beach ensures international comfort, sensational service and superb scenery.
The hotel is basic but located right in front of a quiet beach which feel like private beach. Though far away (50 minutes drive) from Naha's attractions but close to the Aquarium and Kouri Island or other areas in island north. The room is reasonably sizeable and clean. My room has a magnificent seaview (the water is insanely crystal clear!). Hotel staff is friendly and speak reasonably good English. You can also find a few good eats across the street.
Good clean hotel, no frills, quiet, basic and convenient. Lawsons next door, laundry room and spacious rooms with large bathrooms, most have amazing seaview rooms.Beach is just in front of hotel and outdoor seaports centre next door. Only thing missing in room is a safe but there combination locks at reception.
I just spent 7 nights at the Best Western Kouki Beach and really enjoyed myself. The hotel is well sited for visiting the northern regions of Okinawa, which are less visited. The hotel is on a longish beach, which is good for walking, shelling, and swimming. My first day there was after a tropical storm, and I was able to find some beautiful shells. My room is one of the renovated ones, on the top floor, 11, and was modern, well appointed, clean, and had an amazing view of the ocean and the sunset. The staff was friendly, and the gentleman working the front desk helped me figure out how to use the Japanese washer/dryer. A free buffet breakfast was included with Western and Japanese options and a beautiful view. There is a Family Mart to the side of the hotel, which was quite helpful. I highly recommend this hotel. well sited for visiting the northern regions of Okinawa, which are less visited. The hotel is on a longish beach, which is good for walking, shelling, and swimming.

It's just wonderful for vacation, beach is just out from hotel lobby and you could see the beach view from balcony. Room is big compare the price you pay in city, the bathroom is design for wash sand away after you come up from beach. They also have fantastic beach view in restaurant for breakfast!!

We stayed for one night at the Best Western Okinawa Kouki Beach as a stop for our self drive itinerary. Despite that we actually checked in after 9pm, the hotel staff greeted us with a nice warm smile and even offered us two bottles of mineral water to welcome us. They also kept the room which we requested so that we could have the necessary amenities which we desired. At the same time, despite the last minute arrangements, they were able to arrange massage services for us by contacting the Therapists. We had a restful night, woke up to the delicious complimentary Japanese breakfast and a beautiful sea view to behold. We managed to get a little time to enjoy the beach before heading to our next destination. Very nicely appointed hotel with good size rooms and complete amenities. A must for anybody who is in the Kouki beach area.

This hotel is situated a bit far away from many attractions, so please ensure you have rented a car for traveling around Okinawa. There is free parking bay just in front of the hotel entrance. The complimentary breakfast is just ok and I think the room is a bit overpriced. The overall experience is good anyway.
This hotel is located on a beach and each room has a view of the water with a balcony. The room furnishing are not very updated and come with two twin beds. Nice breakfast each morning located on the second floor.
Stayed there for 2 nights which I enjoyed a lot. Parking is free, available just outside the hotel lobby. When we returned late at night, spaces closer to the front door were occupied, so we had to park a bit further (but that was totally fine). A convenient store, family mart, is just right next to the lobby so it was very convenient for us to grab some snacks at night. There was also a lovely cat around! Hotel's lobby and restaurant might have been renewed recently since it looks new and nice. The restaurant where we had complimentary breakfast has a wonderful view to the ocean. A public Shabu shabu is available as well! The room itself appears to be a bit old, but had no problem to enjoy my stay at all. There is a balcony where the sea view is also very beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.
The hotel located near many restaurants, attractions and there's convenient store at the ground floor. Room and toilet are quit big and clean. Ocean view from our balcony and hotel's restaurant are so good. Breakfast's delicious especially okinawa style food, i do loved it. :)
First off, the hotel is in a dreary corner of Okinawa and situated some way off of the city to the south of Nago. The location offers nothing to be inspired by, with a couple of restaurants opposite and a family mart downstairs. The check in was smooth and is modern clean and attractive. However, that's where the positive points end. My room was old, smelly and a bit of a mess. There were scuffs and marks all over the room. The room has a certain scent from certain guests. Not clean. The room has no sound proofing and all night I heard bikes outside zooming by. This kept me awake until 5 in the morning. Unfortunately because I didn't get any sleep and I was woken up by the cleaning ladies making a racket in the morning from 7am, I slept through the breakfast, where there seems to be positive comments. The cleaning staff need to stop making such a noise; I have never experienced anything like it. This applied to the rooms next to me, the room above and below. Even worse when I saw one of them she didn't even acknowledge me with a hello... dire. Bed was uncomfortable, bog standard. Shampoos and shower products like something from a love hotel, cheap and nasty. Awful, awful experience. Best Western caught my eye as a global brand at a cheap price but this was overpriced. Wouldn't go anywhere near this place again.
Staff friendly. Acceptable buffet breakfast (fresh fruit would have been welcome). Rooms clean. Bathroom good. Bedroom right out of the 80s decor...but what you really go for is the beautiful beach! Would stay again. Rent a car so that you can travel around.
???????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????? 1???????????? ????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????? Perfect view and comfortable atmosphere. Good for those who want to swim in the sea. Convince Store located in the same building.
This hotel is quite isolated, but has a convenient Seven Eleven Store situated on the ground floor below the hotel. There are two small restaurants across the street. Food in the hotel was very good and the buffet served in the evening was good value for money. The hotel was under renovation when I visited, but my room was clean and well maintained during my three day stay. I missed not having a pool even though the hotel is right on the beach. The beach was very uncomfortable, as there are no loungers or places to sit and relax. Shoes had to be wworn at all time even when in the water as the beach is coral and impossible to walk on. I enjoyed standing on the balcony as the ocean is just meters away. To take advantage of this hotel, one definitely needs to have a car. I felt reeally stuck without one.
They have a receptionist who speaks good english, so check-in was smooth. The breakfast was great with a decent variety and tasted good. The room was good, comfortable and the bath was good too. Best part.... the seaview room.... what more can you ask for when waking up to a view like that
Wonderfully convenient Hotel with a great view from the room- almost as if one is right above the ocean. Access to an almost private beach is an added plus. The food and the ambience is standard fare. Although I must say, a little bit of focus for vegetarians in food menu would be hugely appreciated.
Hotel is basic but the fantastic sea views more than make up for that. Room was well laid out and the views from the balcony were brilliant. Would recommend if only for the location. If visiting here you do need transport as it's not easy to get around otherwise.
It was renamed under Best Western. The room is a bit old but decorated, with all the basic facilities. The staff can speak simple English. The breakfast buffet also serves Okinawa style food, which is good. And you can look at the sea while eating breakfast. Good for drivers. Family Mart is just downstairs.
Right on the beach, short drive to plenty of great restaurants, decent breakfast. I'd be happy to stay here again, no complaints. There's even a convenience store right downstairs, so you can easily pick up some essentials if you need
I stayed this hotel one night on 12 August 2016 It was great. The room was very beautiful. The bed was very soft. And you can see beautiful beach from your room. And has family mart at 1st floor. So, if you hungry at night, you can go there. I really had a great time here.
Stayed 6 nights, the only reasonable priced hotel at beach front that we could find. The room is small but has a very nice view of the ocean. The breakfast is okay, they could have more tropical fruits but I have no complaints. They also have laundry facilities, which is very helpful if you stay long. The best is that they have a convenient store just next door and a few restaurants just cross the road. Very handy if you don't want to drive 10 minutes or more to have decent meals. Some company offers short boat snorkeling trip just on the beach. But if you are good swimmer you can swim out and see lots fish and corals. Location wise I do think the hotel is the best and would recommend for couples and small families.
Clean hotel Good complimentary breakfast We paid about 110usd per night You need a car to get here Free parking Beachside hotel 35usd for snorkeling behind the hotel (20 minutes) which is a really high price compared to other places Room comfy Ask for a room with one bed so you dont get two double beds if you are a couple All rooms face the beach Gorgeous sunsets evenings Family Mart convenience store in the bottom of the hotel Two restaurants across the street from hotel but not much else around the hotel
We found this hotel while driving up from Naha to visit the Aquarium. To our surprise, it offers an incredible beach view/ocean front! Free parking, wi-fi, and very nice breakfast also with a beach view. Yes, you do need a rental car. We highly recommend a car to explore Okinawa regardless where you stay. For this price, the hotel room itself and the beach was unbeatable. We recommend it to everywhere and will return again, hopefully soon!
As other reviews here have said, this is not a new hotel, but what you will get is an ocean view at a reasonable price. All the rooms have a balcony that overlooks a beautiful quiet beach. The rooms are clean and have all the facilities you need. There was a complimentary breakfast in the modern dining room on the second floor and they even provided buckets and spades for the kids to play with on the beach. The staff were courteous, but not particularly friendly. Would it hurt you to smile a little when you hand over my card key? Make sure to book this hotel only if you are planning on using a rental car. It is a 15 minute drive from the center of Nago and the public transportation is scant.
There is what you want at the hotel. Ocean veiw! Could be saticefied with Sunset&Sunrise.Chairs and table on the teras where you would drink. Free Wifi. Clean bath room. A mammoth refrigerator that is convenience store though. In front of the hotel you could enjoy nice Okinawa restraunt or American steak&sea food. What you need is a car. It is far from airport.
My sister and I stayed in this hotel for 8 days in Feb and we loved it. The room was spacious. All rooms had seaview with a balcony. The bathroom was large. We loved the breakfast. If you like cereal, there's not much choice. There's your usual bacon, eggs, sausages and loads of choice for bread and bakery. But if you love Japanese food, you will love your breakfast. There's even shabu shabu . I cannot fault the staff. They cannot do enough for you. They may not speak English very well but we got by with gestures etc. We loved that there was laundry facilities for guest. This makes such a difference when you are on holiday. And it was cheap to use as detergent was complementary. We had to ask someone from recetion to help us as we didn't understand the instructions. Although they were busy at reception, the lady came up and was so helpful. Also, there were clean cotton pyjamas for us daily. I travel round the world and I cannot fault this hotel. There were little surprises with their service. And the beach by the hotel was lovely. Clean, full of coral and seashells. Lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance. Wifi was fast and strong down at reception and breakfast room. So...only little problem is no wifi in room but this is not a problem. We are on holiday after all. I have already booked to return next year.
The view from the room is excellent. There hotel is at the beach side that you can enjoy sun and beach very convenient. As a budget hotel, the service and facilities offered is reasonable. The decoration of the hotel is old but still maintain good. Just one point bear in mind that there is no double bed room.
The hotel is far more worse than I expected. Firsly it's not cheap so I will expect more, but once I open the door I found it's a very old fashioned hotel room. The fan is full of dusty. The kettle and the tap for shower doesn't work properly. Bedsheet and pillow are very old. Even I can't open the door at the first very beginning and I need to ask the lobby staff to help.The hotel itself stated it has a personal beach but actually the hotel is right situated alongside the beach so everyone can access to the beach. I think I won't stay here for my next visit since everything is very old.
AJ Kouki Resort Hotel is located on the right if you travel south on Route 58. There is a convenience store next to the hotel, of which I believe most of the room guests take much advantage. The hotel restaurant is on the second floor, but we did not try it for dinner. We had breakfast there the next day. It was delicious. Our room was fine. We slept with and woke up to the sound of waves down the hotel. There was a mini kitchen, but we did not bother to use it. Only one key was provided. No door bell was installed outside the room. Wi-Fi was available, but we used our own mobile router instead. The hotel was worth what we paid for. We were satisfied with what we got.
We stayed here a few nights on the top floor. The hotel is directly at the beach and all rooms look over the sea. The breakfast was mainly japanese style but there is a convenience store on the ground floor. There is a small kitchen in the room but we did not find any tools to cook. Hot pot and a large fridge are available as well. The room has a LAN connection and the hotel supplied us a router for the wifi, which was free and working well. There are a few restaurants nearby but for shopping you may need another 10 minutes by car.
great hotel service great breakfast room are old and smell beach are so nice but don't had safe guard on duty please well prepare all the swimming kit easy to find the hotel and next to hotel there had lots of restaurant and easy to access to other landmark sightseeing point i love this hotel service!! please rennovation
