Top Ten Luxury
Azumi Setoda, Japan

Adrian Zecha and Japanese hospitality group Naru Developments have teamed up to launch the new Azumi brand and we’ve been looking forward to this opening for a while.

Opening March 2021, Azumi Setoda, located on Ikuchijima a small island of about 8,000 people in the Seto Inland Sea, is a modern take on the traditional Japanese ryokan experience. 

Kyoto-based architect Shiro Miura,  trained in the sukiya style of Japanese architecture, has led the renovation and has expertly balanced the elements of a homey atmosphere with aesthetics rooted in traditional tea ceremonies. Every guest room has its own small outdoor area - either a private garden, generous balcony, or combination of both. 

We can’t wait to experience this stylish blend of traditional and modern Japanese style and hospitality.

The new Azumi Setoda sits on a 140 year old estate that originally belonged to the influential Horiuchi Family. The property has been restored, rather than rebuilt to create the new luxury hotel.
