Rosewood partners with Mitsubishi for the first hotel in Japan
(April 23, 2021)
Rosewood has signed a management agreement with Mitsubishi Estate to open the first Rosewood brand hotel in Japan.
Scheduled to open in 2024, the 55 Rosewood Miyakojima Villas will be located on Mikayo Island in the Okinawa archipelago.
Miyako Island and neighboring islands offer miles of soft white sand with endless views of the turquoise blue sea. Aquatic adventures range from snorkeling in Yabiji, Japan’s largest expanse of coral reefs, to diving in underwater caverns teeming with marine life, and exceptional deep sea fishing.
Approached through lush green sugar cane fields, Rosewood Miyakojima will occupy a secluded peninsula surrounded on three sides by white sand beaches, dramatic rock formations, and stunning ocean views.
Arriving visitors will feel the sand under their feet within a 20-minute drive from Miyako Airport and a 30-minute drive from Shimojishima Airport, which receives direct flights from Hong Kong and major cities in Japan. .
The 55 villas at the resort will feature private pools, landscaped gardens and stunning sea views.
Facilities will include four restaurants and bars, a variety of event spaces, and a spa with treatment rooms as well as indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy facilities.
“Rosewood’s sensitivity to its places and its dedication to the highest levels of excellence in hospitality, which are perfectly in line with our urban development philosophy, prompted us to appoint them to manage this very special resort”, said Atsushi Nakajima, senior manager, Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. “We are confident that Rosewood Miyakojima will become one of the world’s most coveted vacation destinations when it opens its doors.”
