Rosewood Hotels and Resorts will debut in Japan in 2024 in a destination acclaimed for its exquisite beaches and vibrant marine life.

The hotel group has been appointed by Mitsubishi Estate to manage the ultra-luxury Rosewood Miyakojima in the Okinawan archipelago, located South of Japan.

The 55-villa resort will occupy a secluded peninsula surrounded on three sides by white sandy beaches, dramatic rock formations and expansive ocean vistas.

Asaya, Rosewood’s pioneering 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.

“We’re 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, Rosewood chief executive officer.

The upcoming destination is part of Rosewood’s wider expansion plans for Asia, which includes a further four resorts planned for China.

Conceived by Netherlands-based Studio Piet Boon, the resort’s accommodations’ architecture and interiors are designed to immerse guests in the natural surroundings and express harmony with the island through extensive use of local materials.

Each will feature private pools, landscaped gardens and unobstructed sea views.

Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei is also providing local architectural expertise and support in realising the design vision.

Additional facilities will include four restaurants and bars with relaxed beachfront concepts and a Rosewood Explorer’s Club for younger guests.

Beyond the resort, guests will discover an abundance of vividly picturesque sites, from the majestic natural stone arch of nearby Sunayama beach to the seven-kilometre stretch of Yonaha Maehama, regularly ranked as Japan’s best beach and renowned for its cinematic sunsets.

“Rosewood’s sensitivity to its locales and its dedication to the highest levels of hospitality excellence, which are perfectly in line with our philosophy of urban developments, inspired us to appoint them to manage this very special resort,” said Atsushi Nakajima, senior executive officer, Mitsubishi Estate.
