Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will open its first property in Japan on Mikayo Island in the Okinawan archipelago come 2024.
The 55-villa, ultra-luxury resort Rosewood Miyakojima will occupy a secluded peninsula surrounded by white sand beaches, rock formations and ocean vistas. Each of the resort’s villas will feature private pools, landscaped gardens and unobstructed sea views.
Four restaurants and bars will showcase fresh seafood, island-raised beef, locally distilled spirits and craft beer. With a stunning seascape as a backdrop, the resort’s indoor and outdoor event venues will play host to destination weddings and private celebrations.
On-site recreation will include a standalone Rosewood Explorer’s Club, Rosewood’s programme for younger guests designed to inspire creativity and imagination, as well as encourage adventure, discovery and social responsibility through unique experiences attuned to the destination. Asaya, Rosewood’s integrated wellness concept, will offer treatment rooms set amid private gardens, indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy facilities and a menu of programmes and services influenced by local healing traditions.
The property will be situated 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.
