The eight-story, 80-room Kobe Suma Sea World Hotel will replace Sea Pal Suma, which closed in 2021. Based on the concept of a "value experience hotel that takes you on a journey to the sea," all guest rooms have ocean views of Awaji Island and the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in the Seto Inland Sea. Another strength of the hotel is its integrated operation with Kobe Suma Sea World. The hotel offers a variety of hands-on programs, including Japan’s first "Dolphin Lagoon," where guests can interact with dolphins, six premium rooms with an aquarium tank, and a night aquarium.
