Japan is known for all things cute, and they don’t hold back when injecting this kawaii culture into their cafes, theme parks, and hotels. You might have seen our recent article on a Pokemon hotel in Tokyo and Kyoto, but Okinawa has its own hidden gem of a character hotel that you’ll be rushing to book for your next trip.
With a whopping 66 different themed rooms featuring 8 fan favourites, Hotel Okinawa with Sanrio Characters is heaven for all Sanrio lovers, located in the “Hawaii of Japan”. Prices are affordable too!
Read on to find out more about Hotel Okinawa with Sanrio Characters!
Hotel Okinawa is very accessible, located a stone’s throw from a shopping street. You’ll be an easy 2-minute walk from Makishi station too, so there’s no need to worry about rushing for your train.
While most themed hotels offer a handful of designs which are more or less repeated, Hotel Okinawa gives you a massive selection of 66 unique ones!
Pick between 8 of your favourite Sanrio characters, namely:
- Hello Kitty
- My Melody
- Little Twin Stars
- Bad Badtz-Maru
Whether you’re travelling as a couple or a group, there are various room sizes available: Double Rooms for 2, Twin Rooms for 3, and Junior Suites for 4.
It’s interesting to note that some of the rooms come with tropical elements to match the location. Okinawa is known as a beach paradise, so you’ll see Hello Kitty and friends snorkelling among fishes, surfing, or chilling by the seaside.
Others have more general designs, with illustrations of snacks, florals, and even denim-textured walls. In true Sanrio fashion, you can expect a great deal of pastel here.
But if sweet and saccharine isn’t your thing - or if your boyfriend objects to all the princessy pink - then there are plenty other colour palettes to enjoy.
Do note that while you’re able to choose the character you want, the room design will be given at random, so brace yourself for a surprise!
We recommend choosing your character strategically if you’re hoping to get a specific range of colours for your room. You can’t go wrong with Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars, and My Melody if feminine is what you’re after.
For something more gender-neutral, we recommend PomPomPurin or Gudetama, which come with a cheery streak of yellow.
Alternatively, there are the Bad Badtz-Maru rooms - monochrome with some edgy splashes of colour.
The Cinnamoroll rooms mainly come with cool colours like blue and sea green, setting the mood for a calming night’s sleep.
On top of the super cute rooms, you can enjoy themed meals at their in-house cafe, as well as drop by their boutique to purchase some official merchandise like plushies, bags, and cosmetics. They also have a gym so you can still keep fit while trying all of Okinawa’s tasty food.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that room rates here are very affordable, starting from just USD100 (~S$142)* per night. Supposing you share a room with a friend, you’ll be paying as low as over S$70 per person. At time of writing, you can also get a 20%-25% discount when making your reservation 28 days in advance.
The room designs we’ve featured are just a snippet of the many available. Check out more photos of Hotel Okinawa with Sanrio Characters on their website and bookmark it for your future travels!
