1. Maholova Minds Miura: Satisfying hot springs and spacious sea view rooms

1. Maholova Minds Miura: Satisfying hot springs and spacious sea view rooms

Maholova Minds Miura is a resort that overlooks Tokyo Bay. Located near the Miura swimming beach and a Keikyu railway station, you can see the Bōsō Peninsula on the other side of the bay, beautiful sunrises, and even Mt. Fuji on fair weather days!

Plenty of beach-goers swarm to the area during summer, and visitors also come between February to March each year to admire the 1,000 kawazu-zakura, a type of cherry blossoms that will bloom beautifully along the Keikyu Main Line tracks during sakura season.

The Miura hotel resort has a total of 300 guest rooms, ranging from large living quarters that can house up to 10 guests to royal suites, sky suites with high ceilings, and many others. Wi-Fi is available in all buildings and rooms.

Room prices start from 5,500 yen per night per person for just accommodation with no meals - perfect for travelers who are keen to find their own chow while out exploring!

There's also a unique floor where each room has a design theme. In addition to the original five themed rooms - the Asian Resort, Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Alice, Tiara, and Stylish Romance Rooms - they have since added two more: the Third Generation Baby Room and the Coca-Cola Room.

The main building contains a large bathroom facility, the Kur Park, and restaurants and shops you would expect to see in a building complex. Their large bathroom and open-air bath (men-only or women-only depending on the time) facilities use high-quality natural hot spring water that gushes out from 1,500 meters (about 4,900 feet) underground.

Kur Park and warm water pools are for guests who wish to splash about in a swimsuit, and these facilities are appealing attractions to many as well.

In the Tokyo resort, good food is always available. The all-you-can-eat meal packages are especially popular, since you can gorge on as much fresh vegetables and tuna directly from Misaki Port as your belly can take!

* Online reservation only: Reference fee per person from 11,000 yen (service fee included, consumption tax included, bath tax not included)

Health & Safety Measures
Indoor disinfection measures taken - Sanitizer installed - Disinfected after each guest leaves - Ventilation measures in place - Plastic partitions installed - Staff wear masks, gargle, wash hands regularly, and monitor body temperature - Entry declined to anyone who is feeling unwell - Masks required/temperature check enforced

This Miura hotel resort is at the easternmost tip of Miura Peninsula, located along a strip of sea. All rooms have an ocean view, so wherever you're placed, you can relax to the sound of the waves as you gaze at the vast blue expanse from your room window. All this at only about an hour away from the city!

There are a total of 60 guest rooms. Wi-Fi is accessible in all guest rooms, the lobby, and the banquet room. Tokyo Bay stretches out before the hotel, and the Uraga Channel is just three kilometers (about 1.8 miles) away. More than 200 ships and boats pass through the channel daily, and nothing quite says "leisurely" like watching them roll across the sparkling waters as you relax in the comfort of your hotel room!

There's more! The Miura hotel resort is also equipped with three special guest rooms for glamping ('glamorous camping') purposes. From a mobile house called Jyubako (stay box) designed by world-famous architect Kengo Kuma to a cabin furnished with Snow Peak outdoor lifestyle products, camping at Kannonzaki Keikyu Hotel is a luxurious way to enjoy the outdoors to your heart's content.

When night falls, rolling waves surround your senses, taking away any fatigue you may have accumulated during the day.

The hotel offers great food to guests as well with Le Beau Rivage, an authentic French restaurant, as well as Hamayu, a casual dining restaurant that offers all-you-can-eat meal packages. There's also Spasso, a hot bath facility for nice, long soaks that will doubtlessly contribute to a most relaxing vacation!

The package we recommend going for is the 20,000 yen Seaside Resort Package which includes a one-night stay with two meals - dinner and breakfast. For dinner, you're offered a choice between a Western-style full-course meal or a Japanese meal set that uses an ample amount of ingredients sourced from the Miura Peninsula.

For reference, off-season pricing starts at 17,000 yen per person in a twin room between Sundays to Fridays, and 21,500 yen per person in a twin room on Saturdays and holiday eves.

There's also Spa & All-You-Can-Eat Lunch, a day-trip package that allows you to enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet lunch made with locally sourced ingredients, then relax in the Spasso hot bath facility that faces the beautiful sky and sea.

Business hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Prices (for adults) are 3,900 yen on weekdays and 4,300 yen on weekends and holidays.

Throw in a leisurely walk around the vicinity, and you've got enough on your plate to indulge in for an entire day! The hotel also has an outdoor pool that's perfect for summer dips.

4. Hayama Funny House: A Modern Miura Hotel and Beachside Hideout

Perched atop an area in Akiya Beach is Hayama Funny House, a villa for charter with an area of 600 square meters (about 6,450 square feet). The villa inherited and renovated the famous Shonan Akiya House, designed by Junzō Yoshimura, the architect who spearheaded modern Japanese architecture and turned it into a modern hideout that can only be booked by two groups per day.

The soothing sound of waves lapping the shore is a thoroughly relaxing experience you won't soon forget.

To make your time here even more fulfilling, the villa offers butler services, and it's something you should really check out!

Examples of the services they can handle on request are: Arranging for kayaking in the shallows right in front of the villa, holding a barbecue party on a private terrace, adding your favorite aroma fragrances to your room, and many others. Ask, and you may very well receive!

Only two guest rooms are available at this Miura hotel: South Side Villa and West Side Villa. Both are comfortably spacious and overlook a fantastic view of the ocean.

Leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind and let the gentle Hayama sea breeze and soothing sounds of the waves calm your frayed senses. You're on vacation, after all! Both rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi access.

The open concept of the private terrace does wonders for the mind and heart. Indeed, it's almost like another living room - one that exudes a charm that can't be found anywhere else when the evening sun bathes it in a warm, orange glow!

You'll also get an unblocked view of the ocean while soaking in the open-air Jacuzzi. Don't worry about bringing your own toiletries because shampoo, conditioners, body soaps, facial lotion, skin care creams, towels, bathrobes, and other bathroom essentials will be provided for your convenience.

The large and spacious bedrooms will lull you into a deep and satisfying sleep. West Side Villa has one queen size bed, whereas South Side Villa has one double bed and one semi-double bed. The rooms have been carefully designed to ensure a good night's rest.

The villa is connected to a French grill restaurant, but each villa also comes with a fully furnished kitchen for guests who may want to stay in. The ideal location of Hayama Funny House adds to its appeal and makes it a prime candidate for a staycation that's gentle on the senses yet big on satisfaction.
