Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is all set to manage Rosewood Miyakojima on Mikayo Island in the Okinawan archipelago, Japan, as appointed by Mitsubishi Estate. The property is set to open in 2024. The 55-villa, ultra-luxury resort will represent the first Rosewood property in Japan, in a destination acclaimed for its exquisite beaches with several of the country’s most scenic locations.
Approached through verdant sugar cane fields, Rosewood Miyakojima will occupy a secluded peninsula surrounded on three sides by white sand beaches, dramatic rock formations and stunning ocean vistas. Arriving visitors will feel the sand beneath their feet within a 20-minute drive from Miyako Airport and 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 feature private pools, landscaped gardens and unobstructed sea views. Conceived by Netherlands-based Studio Piet Boon, the architecture and interiors are seamlessly designed to immerse guests in the natural surroundings and express harmony with the island through the extensive use of local materials. Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei is providing local architectural expertise and support in realising the design vision.
Miyako Island and nearby isles offers miles of soft, white sand with endless vistas of turquoise-blue sea. Aquatic adventures range from snorkelling at Yabiji, the largest coral reef expanse in Japan, to diving through underwater caverns rich with marine life and outstanding deep-sea fishing. Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive, Rosewood Hotel Group, said in a statement that the company is honoured to have Mitsubishi Estate as its partner and very grateful for the trust they have placed to offer the exceptional experience.
