Second stay was as memorable as the first

Avaliou em 3 de janeiro de 2022

After a great time at Sankara (and Yakushima overall) 2 years ago, we decided that a return visit was in order. Would a second stay serve to enhance or diminish the fond memories we had from 2019? I can emphatically say that our love affair with Sankara was reaffirmed - no aspect of our experience caused a blemish to the fond memories we had. The food, spa, service, accommodations - they were all exceptional yet again. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sankara Villa Suite during our prior stay, but decided this time to go for the top room, the Sankara Suite. It's a gigantic 126m² in size, and has separate bedroom/living room/dining room, an indoor and open-air bath, and even a spa room with massage beds (for 2 people) where you can get treatments in the comfort of your Suite if you prefer. It also had an expansive balcony with views of the Ocean. Although we loved the Sankara Suite, there were some aspects to it that would have us recommend the Sankara Villa Suite (at least the one we stayed in, which was Room #10) over the Sankara Suite. For starters, the panoramic view of the ocean from the Villa Suite is completely unobstructed, unlike in the Villa Suite, which - while still very nice - had roofs that were visible in the line of sight, partly because the Villa Suite is more elevated. And the Villa Suite is still spacious (104m².) We also felt that the spa room in the Sankara Suite was overkill and unnecessary - it's a very short (and covered) walk from the Sankara Suite to the actual Spa, and Mrs. KI-NRT wanted to check out the spa products on display in any case, so having the therapists come to our room wasn't such a valuable luxury worth paying the huge price difference between the two rooms. Which leads me to my second point... Sankara is very, very expensive. Even the entry-level rooms are not cheap by any means. The Sankara Suite is not quite double the price of the Villa (which is already in nosebleed room rate territory), but at the prices that they charge, you sort of demand perfection and then some. Thankfully, Sankara's overall experience was so extraordinary that it somewhat justifies the exhorbitant rates. It's worth noting that breakfast at Ayana and dinner at the amazing Okas restaurant were included in our room rate. While there are many wonderful boutique luxury hotels and ryokans in Japan, in many ways Sankara takes service, convenience and amenities to an Aman-like level. Airport transfers are complimentary and private (each group of guests get their own driver and van), they have a fleet of vehicles that you can rent by the hour (and you'll want to drive because getting around in Yakushima via public transport is extremely inconvenient) and - while they don't assign a butler to you - most (if not all) of our preferences from our previous stay were recorded and remembered. For instance, they knew that we don't like Champagne, so as a welcome offering in our room, they had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. What's more, my masseuse pointed out that she treated me during our last visit and knew exactly what kind of treatment she provided me. Same goes for food preferences and allergies at both Ayana and Okas. Aside from that, all of the staff members were otherwise friendly, professional and prompt in looking after our every need. The vast majority of staffers were folks that we remembered from our last stay, which says a lot about Sankara's management and working conditions; the employees seem to be well looked after, and it shows in the overall service level of the property. Our two dinners at Okas was once again extraordinary. Head Chef Kenji Hayashi is a total genious. The food is French-inspired cuisine using local ingredients. Highlights included the Specially-prepared "Broken Neck" Blue Mackerel with Chickpea Hummus and Asparagus Leaves), Asahigani Crab and Scallop Ravioli with Crab Dashi and Garlic Sauce, and several wonderful desserts such as the Island Banana Ice Cream with Guava Sauce, Warabi Mochi and Framboise Powder. And, as I mentioned in my previous review, the Pain Rustique the finest dinner bread we've ever had. Overall, each course is full of flavor without being rich and overly saucy, meaning we went through two consecutive dinners there being well-fed without any sense of feeling bloated. Yakushima, by itself, is worthy of a visit, but Sankara adds to the greatness by offering an Aman-like experience (but with better food than at the majority of Amans) and a Bali-esque vibe, located in the foothills of a beautiful mountain range with the calming views of the Ocean. It's a destination resort that happens to be located on a unique destination island. We wouldn't rule out a third visit to Sankara, this time with parents in tow.

One of the best in Japan for sure!

It’s a wonderful space to be relaxed and recharged the energy. The service is so reliable, and also the quality of the restaurant is as good as in the top restaurant in Tokyo. Love this hotel, I hope to come back shortly!

First trip in Yakushima

Avaliou em 8 de abril de 2020

I had a really good time in Yakushima, especially in this resort. The staff are really friendly and kind. The highlight while staying here is probably the dinner they provided here was really decent and delicious. I would definitely come back again in the near future.

Could easily be an Aman

Avaliou em 15 de março de 2020

Sankara is an incredible property on an amazing island. It is a peaceful, serene and supremely comfortable hotel with wonderful food. We stayed 3 nights in a Sankara Villa Suite, which - at 104 square meters - was clean, spacious and tastefully furnished and adorned. The amenities were top notch - everything from the toothbrush, moisturizing cream to in-room treats were of very high quality, showing that Sankara definitely does not skimp on the details. The hardware throughout the entire resort was equally tasteful and to a very high standard. It was modern in functionality but muted and earthly in tone, giving it a great sense of place and not dominating the incredible landscape that it's a part of. Service was warm and attentive, and was representative of Japan's "Omotenashi" ethos taken to the highest levels. Nothing was impossible, including the ability to rent a vehicle directly from Sankara on an hourly basis (not cheap, but neither is the hotel itself.) Sankara is a property that would be among the best in Aman's portolio, but raises the bar with its incredible food & beverage (something that is somewhat lacking in quite a few Amans.) The various bread offerings during breakfast at Ayana is one of the highlights - you'll just have to taste it to believe it. But the true shining star is the dinner experience at Okas. What everyone says is right; it really ought to have a Michelin star. We were initially intending to have one dinner there (on the first night), but wound up going every evening. The dishes in the tasting menu are completely different every day, and even though it is European inspired, it is not at all rich, saucy and heavy. Rather it's very much Japanese in that they do an amazing job at bring out the flavors of the incredible seasonal Japanese ingredients taken from both land and sea. The food offerings are as tasty as they are innovative. We just might consider going back to Sankara just for the dining experience, which is saying a lot given the crazy amount of awesome food options available throughout Japan. Yakushima Island is enchanting, unique and unbelievably green. We visited for the nature (especially the hiking), but Sankara contributed to a "complete" experience.

Fabulous hotel on amazing island

Avaliou em 14 de dezembro de 2019

We stayed for 4 nights in November. Yakushima is an amazing island and was a great change of pace on our Japan trip. While it was very rainy (as somewhat expected) we still managed to explore the island and it’s nature. The hotel is fabulous and the staff (including Nobu and Aki) went above and beyond making us feel welcome and ensuring we enjoy our stay. Food at Ayana was great as well, though we didn’t get to experience their restaurant Okas. Being able to rent a car from the hotel was very convenient and allowed us to explore the island. If you want to treat yourself, Sankara is the place to stay on Yakushima.
