UTOCO Auberge & Spa

6969–1 Muroto-misaki-cho, Muroto City, Kochi-ken, 781-7101, Japan

This elegant spa resort is the last thing you'd expect to find in the rough-and-tumble fishing town of Muroto Cape. It's here, though, and it's fabulous. The spacious guest rooms all have ocean views, both from the windows and from the in-room tubs. The restaurant specializes in "Kuroshio Italian" cuisine, using fresh Kochi vegetables and fish brought in from the Pacific Ocean. The spa offers a range of treatments using sea water drawn from around the cape. The staff speaks some English and provides flawless service. This is definitely a splurge, and there's not much to see or do around the resort, but if you're looking for complete relaxation, you can't do better than here. If you book three days in advance, someone on staff can pick you up at Kochi Airport.
