Marriott International plans to open 14 additional luxury properties in Asia Pacific by the end of 2023.
The planned additions underscore the strategic growth of the group’s upscale hotel portfolio in the region, where it currently operates 156 luxury sites.
Popular and Emerging Locations
Across 13 countries and regions in Asia-Pacific, Marriott’s luxury portfolio covers popular cities such as Tokyo and Melbourne, and the group is poised to bring these experiences to emerging destinations such as Jeju and Jiuzhaigou.
The Company’s luxury brands include The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, W Hotels, The Luxury Collection, Edition, JW Marriott and Bulgari.
Putting on the Ritz
The Ritz-Carlton brand is set to expand further in Japan with the scheduled opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka in 2023. In Australia, the scheduled opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne in early 2023 will offer panoramic skyline views of the city, as well as the brand’s culinary offerings.
Ritz-Carlton Reserve plans to launch its fourth rare Asia-Pacific estate in China’s historic Jiuzhaigou Valley next year.
Destination Driven Beginnings
Elsewhere, St. Regis is set to debut in Goa with a 49-acre beachfront setting, while Indonesia will soon host The St. Regis Jakarta later this year.
The playful, destination-focused W Hotels strand is set to expand to Macau in 2023, and also plans to celebrate its third hotel in Australia with the opening of W Sydney at “The Ribbon” in Darling Harbor in 2023.
Well-being and individualization
Inspired by the principles of mindfulness and holistic wellness, four new JW Marriott hotels are expected in the area. JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites will welcome guests in Thailand by the end of 2022, along with JW Marriott Jeju Resort & Spa on South Korea’s popular vacation island. JW Marriott Goa Vagator and JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an are scheduled to open in 2023.
The individualized publishing brand is set to expand its footprint in 2023 with a second location in Japan, The Tokyo Edition, Ginza. The brand’s first site in Southeast Asia, The Singapore Edition, is also set to launch in 2023.
Additionally, glamorous Italian brand Bulgari will make its Tokyo debut with the planned opening of the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo in 2023 in a new ultra-skyscraper near Tokyo Station. The new hotel is expected to offer 98 luxurious rooms, including a sumptuous Bulgari suite, and will also feature the brand’s restaurants such as Ristorante Niko Romito and Hoseki restaurant.
