Stay somewhere different on your next trip to Japan and opt for Benesse House, a hotel located within a functioning museum. Like the works found within the museum itself, the hotel is an impressive work of contemporary art, with incredible architecture that sets it apart from other accommodation. Benesse House was formed around the concept that there should be coexistence between nature, art, and architecture, and that certainly is the case here. Guests can enjoy the beauty of nature, with the hotel and museum set on the unspoilt Naoshima Island, admire the architecture of the buildings which blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings, and appreciate the works of art that can be found both inside and out. The accommodation itself continues the contemporary theme, featuring bright and minimal décor with artwork present in every room. Even the different dining options and spa adhere to this sleek and minimal style, which produces a calming and relaxed atmosphere. If you have an appreciation for art, there are few hotels that can compare to Benesse House, with the accommodation granting you access to exclusive artwork,and the rooms based in the Museum building even offer you access into the museum after hours.
