Opening in the former royal capital of Shuri, the 328 room Novotel Okinawa Naha is set to bring the brand’s signature, “modern easy living” comfort with timeless design aesthetics to Naha City. Located just 15 minute walk to the World Heritage Shuri Castle, the 15 storey hotel offers a 360-degree view of the former royal capital of the ancient Ryukyu Kingdom.
