Our highlight of the trip! A suite stay at Atta Terrace Club Towers to celebrate our honeymoon, this is a hotel chain from Terrace Four Seasons with a few properties scattering around Okinawa. We chose this place over the Busena Terrace even though it was providing a spectacular ocean view as I was drawn by the Teppanyaki dinner included in our package and no dinner was provided for Busena Terrace even though we had to pay the same price. Since we were traveling around the coastal area so I thought having a oceanview is not my top priority especially during the winter months.
It was a 1.5 hours drive from North Okinawa to Nago City and upon arrival, we were ushered to the lobby and served with welcome drinks, sparkling Rose as we proceeded with our check in procedure.
The infinity pool that stretches towards the ocean, definitely great to dip in during the warmer temperatures.
We were ushered to a little buggy ride towards our accommodation for the night and the view of the hotel property on Level 8 of our suite.
Right opposite the beds would be sofa area where welcome fruits and a rattan fan was waiting for us. The staff had already pre-set the temperature in the room to a warm 24 degrees in anticipation of our arrival.
We could see the garden from our room too.
The garden was planted with Okinawa plants and morning yoga was also conducts at the Azuyama stage area daily.
Our room also provided a ocean view just a little further away but it was still a wonderful sight 🙂
The bathtub area had a view of the main club house area.
Roomy for a Japanese hotel, we have 2 sets of wash up area where we could individually use.
Amenities provided were detailed, with almost everything you would need.
530pm – 7pm was cocktail hour at the Library area near to the pool area. We took a little stroll towards the pool for cocktail hour at about 545pm.
Just in time for the sky to slowly turn to dusk but too bad it was dark and cloudy that evening.
Indoor seatings was already full when we arrived so we settled for a outdoor seating. Even though the temperatures were low but we were kept warm with heaters promptly turned on when we were seated and rugs to cover our legs to keep us warm.
Most of the guests were couples from all ages, so I guess this must be a place popular for couple retreats.
Cocktail hour was a free flow of alcoholic/non alcoholic drinks with some tapas. The black pepper cream cheese was excellent and totally paired with some red wine.
Dinner seatings were either 630pm or 830pm so we opted for the earlier slot and headed over to continue our dinner after our cocktails.
we were pleasantly surprised to be presented with half a bottle of Italian champagne to congratulate us on our honeymoon celebrations. Thanks Atta Terrence!
Appetiser: minced pork tart, assorted sashimi and sea grapes (or scientifically know as Caulerpa lentillifera.)
This is a type of edible seaweed, with a soft texture and the little round balls will pop in your mouth with a tinge of saltiness in your mouth.
The chef showing us the food. We top up 1 of our USA sirloin meat to Okinawa Beef which you can see from the marbled texture over the red USA meat.
Ready to be served.
Chef at work!
USA vs Japan beef. We still much prefer the Japanese beef due to the textured mix of meat and fats so the meat would not be too tough or dry.
Rice with condiments. Love the fish roe with spicy miso and marinated with Okinawa sake.
