Maiko and I stayed at a luxurious hotel called Isaribi in Izu, Shizuoka for our Birthday. We enjoyed a private hot spring bath tub, first class dinner and breakfast served in our room. To us, it was more than we usually spend but to others maybe not? Regardless we enjoyed every minute of it. Tell us what you guys think! Affordable or Expensive?

1:20 – Hotel Arrival
When we got to the hotel, they carried our luggage very quickly to our room and offered a valet service. In the lobby, we enjoyed matcha as a welcome drink with Japanese sweets. The view from the lobby was awesome too!
2:19 – Room Review
The staff took us to our room and explained everything we needed to know about the room like how to use the hot spring bath tub, where to get drinks, yukata size guidance and so on. It was perfect.
2:55 – Hot Spring Review
Our room had a private hot spring(onsen), but this hotel also offers private hot spring in a certain time.
4:21 – Dinner Review
Right at the time we reserved our dinner, a staff in kimono came to prepare our dinner. How she served us and explained every little details about each dish were so proper. The food was exquisite.
6:29 – Next morning and breakfast
Taking a bath in a private hot spring in the morning was exclusive. Just as the dinner, the same staff came to serve breakfast for us in the room.
7:13 – My final thought
We LOVED the hotel. In general, people select hotels by 1. Hot Spring (Bath tub) 2. Dinner and 3. Breakfast, and this hotel has it all. Especially the food was a lot more than we expected.
