Enjoy a camping cookout without the fuss in Okinawa City
If you’re looking for the adventure of camping near the beach and sharing a meal with your friends — minus the hassle of pitching a tent or dealing with dirt and grime — a new pop-up restaurant at the Grand Mer Resort in Okinawa City seeks to bring the excitement of the great outdoors into a stress-free, fashionable setting.
Inspired by the popular concept of “glamping” — a play on the words “glamorous” and “camping” — Barvelous offers all the fun of a camping getaway in a luxurious environment by the ocean.
The restaurant, which is open through Sept. 20, serves up a variety of barbecue dishes for al fresco dining on the hotel’s terrace. Decor featuring Mexican blankets, yurt-style tents and colorful banners makes for an Instagram-worthy backdrop.
The menu features a standard course (3,980 yen per person, or about $36) and a premium course (4,980 yen). A kid’s meal (1,980 yen) for children ages 12 and under is also available.
