The ceremony commemorates one year since the resort was opened to owners and guests. The resort is part of HGV’s continued investment in the APAC region. HGV now has a large business base in Japan with nearly 70,000 owners in the country.

The resort is close to natural caves, cultural heritage sites and a five-minute walk from the beautiful white sand beach of Sesoko. The seaside resort of Sesoko offers truck owners exclusive access to the breathtaking natural wonders, unique culture and traditional cuisine of Sesoko. The property showcases a modern twist on Okinawa’s rich heritage and is conveniently located near Naha Airport. All 140 rooms (studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites) offer ocean views, private balconies, and are equipped with full kitchens and in-unit washer/dryers.

“We are committed to not only being phenomenal hosts to our guests, but also to being a good neighbor to our local communities and a steward of our environment,” said Mark Wang, president and CEO of Hilton Grand Vacations. “We are involved in various initiatives to support the city of Motobu, which will be the second home not only of our team members, but also of the owners and guests. Through our presence, we want to create a sense of community and grow together to enriching the future of children, conserving and revitalizing nature.”

In addition to providing a beautiful vacation destination for HGV members, the company offers HGV team members the opportunity to positively impact local communities in Motobu City and Sesoko Island through its HGV Serves corporate social responsibility program.

The seaside resort of Sesoko is organizing a food drive, collecting food donations from owners and guests since the summer of 2022. The food collected will be donated to the city of Motobu and “Okinawa Yuihato Prefectural Mother’s Square“, which supports single-parent families and the healthy growth of children.

Additionally, as part of the company’s HGV Serves pillar to support young people, HGV has pledged to donate again to the “Motobu Town Children and Childcare Yuimaru Fund” in Motobu City. Youth development is one of the main philanthropic pillars of HGV Serves and to celebrate HGV’s 30th anniversary, the company has launched its new 30 for 30 campaign which will run 30 volunteer and philanthropic initiatives this year.

In addition, efforts to raise awareness of environmental and nature conservation in Motobu are underway, through the #NahaAirportJinbee Campaign, where HGV donates to the Okinawa Churashima Foundation Research Center. To encourage visitors to support the local community, HGV also offers an Okinawa Premium Pass, which partners with local Okinawa businesses to provide exclusive benefits and discounts for HGV members to use on meals, shopping and activities.
