A brand new, 55-villa ultra-luxury property on Miyako Island in the Okinawan archipelago will be the entry point to Japan for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.
Rosewood Miyakojima will be set in a destination acclaimed for its exquisite beaches with several of the country’s most scenic locations. Miyako Island and nearby isles offer wide expanses of soft, white sand with endless vistas of turquoise-blue sea.
Scheduled to open in 2024, 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 all-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 using extensive local materials.
Four restaurants and bars will include relaxed beachfront concepts showcasing fresh seafood, prized island-raised beef, locally distilled spirits and craft beer.
Rosewood Miyakojima will also offer its Explorer’s Club for kids and the Asaya wellness centre for adults.
“We are tremendously excited that our first presence in Japan will be in this exquisite location, where Rosewood’s signature A Sense of Place concept will be expressed amidst such a spectacular setting and rich culture,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group.
