Located over 20 kilometers away from the busy streets of Naha, Chatan town has lots to offer in the way of accommodation. Getting out of the city and into the beach-side way of life is what Okinawa is all about. Staying close to our shop minimizes transit time to and from your hotel (approx 1 hr to Naha during rush hour). Also, staying close to our shop allows you to relax after diving not fight the Naha traffice at rush hour. We can spend that extra time logging dives, getting an extra night dive in, servicing gear, checking out the day's photos, or just kicking back at the shop or at one of the many local pubs or restaurants located just a stone throw away. Check out the list and websites to see which accommodation suits you best. If you need help making reservations contact our staff they are experts in getting the best deals and rooms available.
