All our hotels are unique, but this one is even more special. Let's say that it's pilgrimage for all art and architecture lovers. Located on a small isolated island in the Inland Sea, the Benesse House marks a collaboration between the billionaire collector Soichiro Fukutake and architect Pritzker laureate Tadao Ando. Everything enamelled major works and installations signed Jackson Pollock and James Turrell, among others. The place has clearly been built by love of art. And if art is not your thing, sleeping in a room Ando signed on a floating island green as a tree, can be enough to fill you up. Add to that the possibility of spending the night at the museum, to contemplate the works of masters, and the experience turns sublime. According to the standards in force in the Japanese rural hotels, the rooms are rather Western, but with this view of the green and the sea from every room, you never forget where you are. And if the blond wood, windows and furniture with clean lines would be quite in their place in Patagonia or in Palm Springs, a distinctly Japanese sensibility governs all. The rooms play the blueprint without falling into the austere and chilly, and nature living beyond walls and windows is always well framed. The four buildings, distinct architecture, which make up the hotel offer four different experiments. In the Museum building, guests are accommodated closer to art, with original drawings, paintings and prints from the collection home adorning the rooms and public areas. The oval building is most unusual in terms of architecture, arranged around a dark pool carved into a green hill, with its oval frame open to the sky. The building of the Park is more like a traditional hotel with restaurant and shops, in addition to art galleries. As for the building of the beach, it has almost the waterfront. To top it all, you will find several sunny and contemporary restaurants, a nice spa and a thermal concept art gallery. But hey, you come here to live mainly among the works of art. A unique experience and an opportunity not to be missed.
