Hotel Laforet Nanki-Shirahama

Shirahama Onsen Hotel

Hotel Laforet Nanki-Shirahama is part of the nation-wide Laforet Hotels and Resorts Group operated by Mori Kanko Trust in accordance with their philosophy of being a life design support company that provides comfortable spaces and pleasant services.  Laforet is a membership based hotel that is also open to the public.  The Nanki-Shirahama property is located within walking distance of the expansive, white Shirarahama beach.  The spacious rooms have excellent views of either the ocean or surrounding mountains, often referred to as "Sunrise" or "Sunset" side.  The views from the top-floor hot spring bath are breathtaking.  Private baths with floor to ceiling windows lead your gaze to the ocean’s horizon in the distance.  Meals focus on the local seafood catch off of the Kii Peninsula’s rocky shores.
