Nestled on a hillside overlooking Beppu Bay, the ANA Intercontinental Beppu Resort and Spa harmoniously blends traditional Beppu hot spring culture with the luxury of an international resort hotel.

Beyond the Forest: Embracing Nature and Tradition

The essence of Beppu’s natural beauty is encapsulated in every corner of the resort. Upon entering the lobby, guests are greeted by a central basin crafted from black granite, its flowing water creating a serene ambiance that transports visitors away from daily stresses into the resort’s unique atmosphere. This central space, designed by local artisans, serves as a focal point where guests can pause and appreciate the harmony between modern luxury and traditional craftsmanship.

The resort seamlessly integrates artworks by local artists and craftsmen, transforming its spaces into an art gallery that showcases Oita’s vibrant cultural heritage. Among the highlights is “Prism Ellipse, Kumogami,” a bamboo masterpiece by local artist Mr. Nakatomino Kazuuji, which adorns the main lobby with its elegant curves, evoking the image of clouds enveloping the hotel.

The walls of the lobby bar counters are also delicately crafted with bamboo by skilled local craftsmen, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere complemented by soft lighting.
