The first impression is important when people visit a hotel, and with that in mind, designers of the Hilton created a sophisticated interior that mixes Okinawan tradition and modern design. In contrast to the dark hues of the interior, blue sky and beautiful ocean dominate the view through the large windows. The pool area with two separate large pools, one with a waterfall, is between the hotel building and the ocean with a surrounding wall ensuring privacy of bathers. In addition to the two pools outside, there is one indoor pool and a gym. In the spa, after a day of sightseeing, visitors can soothe their aching bones with treatments that use local traditional ingredients.
