Araha Resort ARAPANA

Beachside lodging for a taste of Chatan

ARAPANA is a property with four unique units ranging from a guestroom with a queen-size bed to a 3LDK suite that can accommodate up to 12 people.

The property is located in central Okinawa’s Chatan Town, right next to the popular Araha Beach, which resembles a scene from “Fantasy Island.” The beach offers marine activities all year round including raft fishing and glass-bottom boat rides as well as seasonal hover-boarding and fly-boarding. This accommodation is suitable for tourists because of its proximity to gift shops, restaurants, bars, bakeries and grocery stores. One of the hottest attractions in Okinawa, the ever-growing American Village is only five minutes away by car. The hotel provides a limited quantity of free bicycles for use by guests who want to explore the town on wheels. A BBQ on the large patio is available for the enjoyment of guests.
The hotel is pet friendly with a staff that loves animals and believes that pets are part of the family, and it also has a private beachside BBQ patio available by reservation.
*Free parking and courtesy airport shuttle service are available.
