The hotel has a total of twenty rooms: nine standard double, four deluxe rooms, two Cave Suites, two Family Suites and one Deluxe Suite.
Gamirasu hotel is a combination of seven old houses with eighteen rooms, exquisitely restored and combined. Part of the hotel was used by Christian monks until recently.
