Kai Atami is a 4-star hot spring ryokan located in a Japanese prefecture on Honshu’s coast known as Shizuoka. Shizuoka is home to several tourist sites, including the famed Mount Fuji. The location where the inn is situated is surrounded by nature and a pristine environment, overlooking the Sagami Bay and Izu-Hanto Peninsula. Guests can enjoy the beautiful scenery and sounds hummed by the breeze and plants during their relaxation.

The rooms of Kai Atami are designed based on the traditional Japanese style complete with tatami mat flooring, abundant space, and large windows. The ryokan has a total of 16 rooms, which cost around 30,000 to 70,000 JPY per night. Visitors can enjoy the stillness and serene essence where they can also hear the sound of ocean waves paired with classic Japanese aesthetic, enhancing the stay with calmness and cultural immersion.

Kai Atami also offers onsen facilities where guests can choose from indoor and outdoor baths, with the communal bath made of cedar, both offering a view of nature. The resort introduces the concept of “Rediscovering Atami” where visitors are offered the night view of the area where fireworks can be seen depending on the occasion. Kai Atami’s lounge blends modern elements with the traditional design of the inn.

A stay at the ryokan would not be complete without the kaiseki, a multi-course dinner that the resort offers. Meals often highlight seafood, combining it with local flavors in the traditional order. Kaiseki is served in-room with dishes based on the season. Atami also lets its guests experience traditional performances from the Geisha where they dance, sing, and play games.

Kai Atami is near market streets specializing in dried fish, fruits, and vegetables. It is also near the MOA Museum that has over a thousand paintings and a Noh theater. The hotel can be reached by car or bus from the Hakone Yumoto Station. Kai Atami is unfortunately closed and is scheduled to open in the year 2022 after its renovation.

A pity that this nice place will be closed since April 2019
It was until we arrived and stayed here we realized how beautiful this place is. We saw various comments of drawbacks from other travelers when we hesitating whether to book the resort. The whole layout situated on a steep slope facing the sea. The Japanese Ryokan part is perched on the top and the Western style Annex villa dwelt at the foot. A terrace in the middle way between the two parts serving a brilliant sea view and nice drinks and snacks complimentary. We like this place.

Villa Del Sol, Kai Atami
Kai Atami is built on a small mountain beside the sea of Sagami Bay, Atami. The hotel has fully utilized its unique location by having a historical ryokan built in 1849 on the cliff top, and a western style auberge-hotel at the bottom of the mountain facing the ocean. We stayed at Kai Atami, Villa Del Sol, in October 2018. (my review is also in petitetravel.net). Atami is a tired-looking seaside onsen town with remnants of old hotels and buildings. However, the onsen town seems to have a recent revival with interesting design focused hotels such as the Kai Atami and Hiramatsu Atami scattered around the area. When our taxi arrived at Villa Del Sol, we seemed to have entered a different period of history as we alighted outside the historic French-style building with a small quiet manicured garden beside the sea. Inside the building, we had a welcome drink and snack among the historic furniture and decor. While the lobby and dining area retained the antique furniture and sensibilities of a former era, we crossed the plum-scented corridor to our the room at the Villa del Sol which was fitted with a light modern design with views of the ocean. To reach the onsen, a side-door at the corridor opens out to the outdoors where a winding flight of cobbled stone stairs among the gardens brings guests up to the Sei Kai Terrace and onsen on mid-mountain. A few further flights of steep stairs upwards lead to the second onsen, and finally the main ryokan is reached by a flat walking path and a last set of stairs. The main ryokan has a travel library with free snacks and that has to be reached with yet more stairs. For young people, the hotel layout connected entirely only by stairs is a swift and enjoyable climb uphill, but may be more challenging for elderly guests and children. The hotel has a sample list of activities for guests and we were happy to stay at the hotel throughout our stay. After the onsen, there were free drinks and snacks at the terrace lounge overlooking the ocean. In the evening, we had a country-style French dinner at the charming Villa Del Sol restaurant while listening to the sound of waves and admiring the full moon. After dinner, there was a free-to-try sake tasting and a complimentary geisha performance at the main ryokan. For guests at the Villa Del Sol, the hotel had a free taxi service to bring us to and from the main ryokan hence there was no fear of having to scale the mountain to join the ryokan activities. The next day, the climb to the onsen and the travel library for coffee and snacks provided a slightly challenging but delightful morning walk. Breakfast back at the villa dining area was a delicious clam chowder with bread, fruits and home-made yoghurt!

A serene place
We were picking between several Kai properties in Japan as it was our first time staying with this company. We decided to stay at Kai Atami since it has ocean view and we have never been to this town. They made it special for our wedding anniversary by engraving words on our dessert. Pros: - Service was excellent , staff spoke good English and was easy to communicate with - geisha performance at night was special - food was good but was hoping the ingredients would be more special with this price point. The steamed fish rice was excellent - room was spacious - the Terrance had excellent ocean view; the Library and the French house were nice places to ha a cup of tea or coffee to relax Cons: - lots of stairs to go down for onsen and up to your room, not recommended for senior or pregnant women - does not offer shuttle bus ride from Atami station, but easily accessible via 10min bus ride or taxi ride - ocean views were blocked by tree branches Overall it was a relaxing trip. I'd recommend if you have been to Mt Fuji and area and want to try something different.

Heavenly
Stress doesn’t even know where to find you when you check into this resort. The views, the hot springs, the impeccable service and the fact that you don’t even need to wear your own clothes make you just relax. And the food! No words. Don’t miss it!!

A wonderful Japanese experience
Thank you to the kind hosts at Kai Atami. Our one night stay during our 10 day vacation was filled with memories that we will always remember. It was a great opportunity to experience the culture, traditions and hospitality of japan. English was some of the best we’ve experienced on our stay, even though we stayed at mostly all western hotels. We felt welcomed and well cared for.
