Rosewood Announces First Property In Japan To Open In 2024

  • Rosewood Announces First Property In Japan To Open In 2024

    Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. to manage Rosewood Miyakojima on Mikayo Island in the Okinawan archipelago, opening in 2024. The 55-villa luxury resort will become the first Rosewood property in Japan, in a destination known for its exquisite beaches.


    Approached through sugar cane fields, Rosewood Miyakojima will occupy a secluded peninsula surrounded by beaches, rock formations and ocean views. (Arrival includes a 20-minute drive from Miyako Airport or 30-minute drive from Shimojishima Airport, which receives direct flights from Hong Kong and major cities in Japan.) The resort’s 55 villa accommodations will have private pools, landscaped gardens and unobstructed sea views. Four restaurants and bars will include relaxed beachfront concepts showcasing fresh seafood, island-raised beef, locally distilled spirits and craft beer. The architecture and interiors will be created by Netherlands-based Studio Piet Boon. Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei Inc. is providing local architectural expertise and support in realizing the design vision.


    On-site recreation will include a standalone Rosewood Explorer’s Club, Rosewood’s program for younger guests with unique experiences attuned to the destination, as well as Asaya, Rosewood’s integrated wellness concept. Guests can expect treatment rooms set amid private gardens, indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy facilities and a menu of programs and services influenced by local healing traditions.


    About the destination: Miyako Island and nearby isles offer miles of soft, white sand and views of turquoise-blue sea. Aquatic adventures range from snorkeling at Yabiji, the largest coral reef expanse in Japan, to diving through underwater caverns teeming with marine life and outstanding deep-sea fishing.


    Beyond the resort, guests will discover an abundance of picturesque sites, from the natural stone arch of nearby Sunayama beach to the lighthouse at Higashi-Hennazaki Cape ( a nationally designated “Place of Scenic Beauty” ) and the four-mile stretch of Yonaha Maehama, regularly ranked as Japan’s best beach and renowned for its sunsets. A quick trip from the property will reveal distinctive customs, culture, dialects, cuisine and crafts of the Okinawan uchinanchu ( “sea people” ) who inhabit the island.
