Located right in the center of downtown Beppu you can find Tenku-Yubo Seikaiso, a hotel that features a luxurious ocean view. The hotel offers several different rooms, ranging everything from tatami floors and futons to balconies and private hot springs. You can also enjoy the lobby lounge and private dining rooms during your stay. Seikaiso is a hotel that truly uses the full potential off the bay location, so let’s check out their beautiful private baths!
Finding the hotel is quite simple as it is located right next to one of Beppu’s most famous landmarks – Beppu Tower. You can easily access every part of downtown Beppu while staying at Tenku-Yubo Seikaiso. There’s also a bust stop and Beppu station just a couple of minutes away by foot if you want to explore more remote spots of Beppu, like Kannawa.
When getting to the hotel, you will be met with a beautiful entrance with a maple and bamboo garden that lights up during the evening. To access the family bath you have to take the elevator to the 6th floor, then take the stairs up to the roof.
The hotel has four private family baths located on the rooftop to give you an exclusive view of the ocean during the day, and Oita city at night. All of the hot springs have the same outlay, consisting of a bathroom, hot spring with an open air view, and a changing area with mirrors and complimentary products. You are guaranteed to get a stunning view no matter which room you choose! The rooms all have charming sky-related names like «Shooting star» and «Big Dipper», and in this article we will be showing you room number three which is called the Milky way.
When you walk into the room, the first thing you will notice is the scenic view that almost looks like it has been taken from a commercial. The view of Beppu’s coastline from the hotel’s hot spring is almost too stunning to describe with words. The blue ocean stretches out as far as the eye can see, which perfectly compliments the relaxing hot spring. The hot spring is beautifully made of wood, and can room around three people at once.
Before you head into the bath, make sure to wash off using the shower and provided soaps. When you are finished you can finally enjoy the tranquil view. Though there’s a walking area right next to the ocean, the only thing you can hear is the trickling sound of the hot water being refilled into the bath. You will feel like you are completely removed from the rustle and bustle of city life.
The changing area is quite spacious, leaving a lot of room for you and your potential partner or friend to get ready before and after the bath. There’s a big bench where you can go and take breaks from the warm water when needed. Included in the changing area you can find not only small bath towels and hair dryers, but also a line of skin care for both men and women. There’s also a small booth outside the rooms where you can get a big towel if needed. You really won’t need to bring anything when you are staying with Tenku-Yubo Seikaiso!
After finishing your bath, you can take a breather on the benches right outside of the entrance to the private hot spring with a cold drink from the vending machine. From this side you can see all of Beppu city and get a close up of the famous Beppu Tower, almost rivaling the seaside view. It’s the perfect spot to take pictures to reminisce about your Beppu visit, so make sure to take some before you head back down!
Tenku-Yubo Seikaiso makes the most of its amazing location next to Beppu bay, incorporating the seaside view in every single room and lounging area in the hotel. It is in the perfect spot for exploring Beppu, while you also have the option of completely secluding yourself if you feel like it. Staying here will give you a truly luxurious experience that you will be bragging to your friends about for months. Make Tenku-Yubo your next stop!
