JW Marriott will take luxury mindfulness further into Asia

Marriott International’s luxury JW Marriott brand is heading to ever more international destinations as travellers are continuing to seek wellness experiences.
At the end of the last quarter, the five star strand was in 112 sites throughout more than 35 countries, and according to the TOPHOTELPROJECTS database, at least 42 further hotels are on the way.
JW Marriott hotels are designed to provide a haven for guests to focus on their mind, body and spirit, and in the wake of the pandemic, this is proving especially popular with tourists.
Therefore it’s no wonder that our data currently estimates another 13,453 new or refurbished rooms will be welcomed under the brand’s umbrella over the next few years.
The pipeline is fairly steady over the next couple of years, with 15 deliveries in 2023, and another 11 in 2024. Two properties will come online by the end of this year, while the remaining 14 are either slated for further ahead or have yet to receive a completion date.
There’s a particular focus on Asia for the projects we have on record, with 69% of upcoming hotels on the continent, equating to 29 builds. Way behind in second place is North America on five projects, followed by Europe with four.
In terms of individual countries, China tops the list with 13 sites, with India in runners-up spot with five hotels and USA close behind with four. Drilling down further into city count, we see that nowhere has more than one project, so the location pattern is very diffuse.
Ones to watch
Some of the most notable Asian additions include JW Marriott Jeju Resort & Spa bringing mindfulness to South Korea’s popular holiday island by the end of this year. The 197-key site will feature a Sky lobby with a bridge to the rooftop Silvergrass Bar and below it the Flying Hawk and Mrs Kim restaurant.
In Japan, JW Marriott Hotel Tokyo will be arriving in 2025. A key component of JR East’s extensive redevelopment project of the former JR Shinagawa Depot Railway Yard, the 200-room property will boast an all-day restaurant with a semi-open kitchen, a specialty restaurant, and a lobby lounge which will feature a Croissant Bar. Plans also call for a spacious Executive Lounge, a 25-m indoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, and the brand’s signature Spa by JW. In addition, the hotel will feature 740-sq m of event space, as well as 250-sq-m of pre-function event space.
