Grand Mer Resort offers special for locals

Date Posted: 2010-06-04

A local custom around the world is providing special rates for locals—as compared to tourists and other visitors—and the Tokyo Dai-ichi Hotel Grand Mer Resort has introduced the “Shima-wari”, which means islander discount, with a choice of several options.

Many top-rated hotels have some form of special local rate, most running into the ¥8,000~10,000 per night range. The Tokyo Dai-ichi Hotel Grand Mer Resort has surpassed the norm with its “Shima-wari”, offering specials starting from ¥6,800 per person per night when 4 people share a room. Equally important, locals are also offered special dinner and spa plans.

All rooms at the Tokyo Dai-ichi Hotel Grand Mer Resort have ocean views, and the hotel prides itself on its bilingual staff that speaks not only English, but also Spanish and Chinese. The hotel is also equipped with a childcare facility, allowing parents time alone and peace of mind. The “Shima-wari” specials are in effect until July 16th, and also comes with other specials including a free cocktail at the 10th floor bar lounge, and ¥5,000 worth of “Grand Money” - a hotel currency which can be used on the next visit.

The spa plan comes with a choice of three 40-minute courses, the body oil massage, a facial or a foot massage which all include breakfast. Guests can also enjoy aesthetic spa treatments with Fromo, an original formula made with all-natural Okinawa ingredients. While the “Shima-wari” is in effect, guests can purchase additional options for only ¥1,000 more.

The dinner plan is fabulous and is designed for foodies. In addition to breakfast, visitors can enjoy a luxurious hotel dinner with a choice of either a Japanese course setting or a Western-style all-you-can-eat-and-drink buffet. Choose from juicy roast beef, freshwater prawn gratin and steamed snow crabs, all top choices on the buffet. Also included in the plan are a variety of appetizers, salads, desserts and alcoholic beverages such as wine and awamori.

The Japanese course gives patrons two options; steamed fresh seafood or Aguu pork “shabu shabu” - thinly sliced pork blanched in hot soup, served with tempura, sushi, a variety of side dishes and a Japanese-style dessert. Both options are so tempting, most people leave after making reservations to try the other course.
For those who’ve already visited the Tokyo Dai-ichi Hotel Grand Mer Resort, they come away saying “both options are so tempting that it’s hard to decide between the Western-style buffet and the Japanese course dinner.

Tokyo Dai-ichi Hotel Grand Mer Resort is located in Yogi, on top of a hill overlooking Awase. Going our from Kadena Gate 2, turn right onto Hwy 330 and then left past old Awase Golf Course. Continue straight until at T-intersection take right again and then another right. The hotel will be on the right side of the road with parking on both sides.
