Japan’s Tropical Island Resort Reveals A Stunning Transformation
Situated on the island of Ishigaki, in the far south of Japan, Club Med Kabira Beach combines Japanese elegance and gastronomy with pristine nature and a relaxed, tropical ambience. The resort is located near the emerald waters and white sands of Kabira Bay, Ishigaki’s most cherished natural attraction. The surrounding national marine park coral reefs are renowned as one of world’s top diving spots. Black pearls are also cultured in Kabira Bay, making coveted souvenirs.
In 2012, Club Med Kabira Beach has undergone a makeover and emerges as a sleek, contemporary resort offering wonderful sights, culture and activities that are unique to this part of Japan.
Ishigaki is located 2000km from Tokyo, 1,100km from Seoul and 1,900km from Shanghai. It is currently accessible via a one-hour flight from Naha Airport in Okinawa, however the new Ishigaki International Airport will open in 2013 offering direct access from major Asian cities. Therefore, 2012 affords a great opportunity to visit this Japanese tropical gem before it becomes widely known across the region.

Club Med Kabira Beach offers 181 guestrooms that open out to nature. All Suites and Deluxe Garden Terrace rooms have been completely renovated in soft crème and mint tones, with large terraces encompassing sea or garden views. Connecting rooms are available for families.
