Sheraton Grande Ocean Resort Hotel

The Phoenix Seagaia Resort is a massive oceanside resort spanning nearly 10 kilometers of coastline just north of central Miyazaki City. More than just a collection of hotels, Seagaia is a symbol of Miyazaki's resort heritage and offers its guests a wealth of things to do.

Although parts of Seagaia have been closed due to post economic bubble restructuring, there are still many attractions on the grounds including hot springs, beaches with excellent surfing and a zoo. There are also world class tennis and golf facilities where international competitions are routinely held.

Miyazaki was once the most popular honeymoon site for domestic newlyweds until it was surpassed by Okinawa and Hawaii in the 1980s. The Seagaia Resort was built in the early 1990s as state of the art symbol of Miyazaki's resort tourism with the hope of attracting visitors and revitalizing the economy.

By 2001, however, the Seagaia Resort went bankrupt and was sold to a foreign investment firm that revitalized the resort, streamlined its operations and closed unprofitable attractions such as the Ocean Dome, the world's largest indoor water park and a main landmark of the resort. More recently the resort, which is still struggling financially, was sold to Sega Sammy.
