FROM THE OWNERS OF Setouchi Seaplanes and luxury cruise ship Guntû, this superbly located resort overlooking the Seto Sea regales its guests with the wonders of the great outdoors. A Maserati or BMW car loan will get you around in style as will the full service marina offering a variety of boating trips, from sunset cruises and uninhabited-island picnics to fishing charters and Jet Skiing. A refurb last year now offers modernized rooms and a new spa.
