1. Book A Great Rental Car

There’s plenty of selection and shops close to the airport. “Direx” http://direx-rent.com/okinawa provide amazing rental cars as well as a limousine service.
2. Resort Luxury
Okinawa has too many luxury resorts to mention but there’s something for every budget. Rather than flying off to a resort, save the airfare and in a short drive you’ll be relaxing by the pool.
In the South of the island there’s the Southern Beach Hotel Resort close to Itoman. A new resort hotel with everything you could want including five interlinked pools. Perfect for sipping cocktails under an umbrella. https://goo.gl/maps/JLhD6MEGRJr
In the center of the island check out Seaside Hotel The Beach. Perfect for escaping right in the center of Chatan, close to the seawall. The new building has luxurious rooms and there’s a hot tub on the roof with amazing views at affordable prices. https://goo.gl/maps/PRTtFH7xpHz
Finally, our top luxury pick is the Busena Terrace near Nago. If you really want to spoil yourself then you’re sure to find it here. Includes amazing rooms, private beach, underwater observatory and several great restaurants. https://goo.gl/maps/SD5Z4WXZhhJ2
3. Beach & Sightseeing
After you’ve tired of sitting on your private beach at your hotel get away from the more developed center of the island and check out more isolated natural areas of Okinawa. Hamahiga Island is great for some peace and quiet and is also close to Ikei and Miyagi islands. https://goo.gl/maps/Ym6UFVJz5kT2
Alternatively why not visit the Motobu area of Okinawa. You can be a tourist at the Churaumi Aquarium and Ocean Expo Park then either drive over the bridge to Sesoko Island or take the 15 minute ferry to Minna-jima island.
No vacation is complete without enjoying food you wouldn’t normally eat at home.
A great way to treat yourself is to check out the lunchtime buffets at most of the resort hotels. Hotels such as the Busena, Marriott and Alivila amongst others offer a taste of luxury at affordable prices at lunch and you don’t need to be a guest!
