Marriott International expects to open 14 additional luxury properties in Asia Pacific by the end of 2023.

The planned additions highlight the strategic growth of the group’s high end 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 including Tokyo and Melbourne, and the group is ready 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 expected opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka in 2023. In Australia, the anticipated opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne in early 2023 will offer panoramic views above the city skyline, along with the brand’s culinary offerings.

Ritz-Carlton Reserve anticipates debuting its fourth rare estate in Asia Pacific in the historic Chinese valley of Jiuzhaigou next year.

Destination-led debuts

Elsewhere, St. Regis is slated to debut in Goa with a 49-acre beachfront setting, while Indonesia will soon welcome The St. Regis Jakarta later this year.

Playful, destination-led strand W Hotels is slated to expand to Macau in 2023, and also expects to celebrate its third hotel in Australia with the opening of W Sydney at ‘The Ribbon’ in Darling Harbour in 2023.

Wellness and individualisation

Inspired by the principles of mindfulness and holistic wellbeing, four new JW Marriott hotels are anticipated across the region. JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites will welcome guests in Thailand by the end of 2022, along with JW Marriott Jeju Resort & Spa in South Korea’s popular holiday island. Slated to open in 2023 are JW Marriott Goa Vagator and JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an.

The individualised Edition brand is slated to expand its footprint in 2023 with a second location in Japan, The Tokyo Edition, Ginza. Also expected to launch in 2023 is the brand’s first site in Southeast Asia, The Singapore Edition.

Plus glamorous Italian marque Bulgari will debut in Tokyo with the planned opening of Bulgari Hotel Tokyo in 2023 in a new ultra-skyscraper near Tokyo Station. The new hotel is slated to feature 98 luxurious guestrooms including a lavish Bulgari Suite and will also offer the brand’s dining venues such as il Ristorante Niko Romito and Hoseki Restaurant.
