The dinner and the service are the hightlight of Musouen
Hotel provides free shuttle transportation from station every 30 minutes from 9am to 5pm on a call basis, which is great for tourists to travel around Yufuin station area. All the service men and women are polite and sincere, and one of the service women not only personally show us the room and facilities, make up beds, but also arrange for Japanese desserts and tea service to welcome our visit.
There are total five different kinds of exterior hot spas, 1 for men, 2 for women, 4 smaller one for family, and no reservation required. You can enjoy the stunning view of Mt. Yufu and whole Yufuin town when relaxing in the spa.
The meal is what I think the most impressive part of the stay. Dinner and breakfast are served in Japanese style restaurant, with heater to warm your feet when dining. Instead of putting all food on the table at once, the dishes are served sequentially based on your dinning speed, and the Japanese cuisine served here is quite delicious and the food amount is sufficient. The service woman is also pretty nice and polite, and she explained to us the dish just served in Japanese and acceptable English. Breakfast is served in set instead of buffet style, but still quite sufficient even for men.
I lost my watch during spa moment, and they happen to find it and return it to me unharmed, really appreciate their efforts. During checkout, we also received a small gift from them showing their appreciation regarding our stay. In short, Yufuin is a great place for spa-lovers, and it's the one I will definitely come and Musouen will still be my first choice for accommodation.
