This time I wanted to stay at Setouchi Retreat Aonagi. My husband and I flew from Haneda to Matsuyama Airport to visit Ehime for the first time. Even though I'm not knowledgeable about architecture, the place is often featured in magazines, and I was impressed with Tadao Ando's wonderful design. Incidentally, all the staffers are very friendly, and with Manager, Mr. Yoshida, as its head, a message is shared with the rest, which made us feel the unity of the workplace. In addition, meals were excellent and varied, with every dish delicate and delicious. We stayed in a hanroten (semi-open-air) suite, and everything from the temperature of the onsen to twilight was truly amazing! As the price was high, it's difficult for us to frequent, but we left with the impression that this was a wonderful hotel worth visiting precisely because of this, aptly named "retreat." We appreciate their hospitality. Thank you very much. + More

I had a healing experience while admiring Tadao Ando's attention to details in a simple yet sophisticated building. Additionally, all the staffs were very good to us, and they kindly sent us something my wife had left, with the shipping cost paid by the hotel. I hope to go back there if I get another chance. + More

As first-time guests, we stayed in a spacious room in a "one-floor/one-room" style with its own onsen and delicious Japanese meals for breakfast and dinner. It was a wonderful place. The staff was very kind and took good care of us. However, as it was recently opened, there are apparently things they were not yet familiar with. Even though the day we stayed there was a bit hot for that time of the year, the room was not air conditioned as it was managed centrally, so we had to open the large window open and lower the roll curtains. Also, we noticed there were a lot of bugs more than we expected. Even so, we felt the enthusiasm of the staffers trying to improve the place, and I thought it had great potential to be a better resort for adults in the future. + More

Most suitable for architecture fans. As for service and food, there is room for improvement. They served dinner with a halting explanation, with a horrible timing. There was not even a menu for breakfast. As they failed to explain what would be served next, we stopped eating halfway. While they didn't have many guests, why is it that we couldn't find any staffer around? Additionally, they need to do something fast about air conditioning and bugs, which will increase soon. As the room was still not air conditioned, I had the window open, but bugs kept coming in. I hope to see improvements if I have another opportunity to visit there. + More

Even though I was worried as there were not reviews yet, but it was a good choice. As it was a former art museum designed by Tadao Ando, I enjoyed my extraordinary stay thanks to the simple yet dynamic architecture. Meals were served on elaborate dishes, but as they were based on Kyoto cuisine, I was able to savor it until the end. A lot of ingredients with strong spring fragrances, such as seri (Japanese parsley), fatsia sprouts, and butterbur sprout, were found in the food, which I personally love. The butterbur sprout ice cream was so full of butter sprouts that it was challenging to eat. It was great that I was able to stay long in the rotenhanburo (semi-open-air bath). I was able to view Setonaikai and sunset as I stayed on the top floor. As it's surrounded by the golf field, you can enjoy your holidays at this hotel on the mountain while relaxing and doing nothing. + More
