Marriott has shared the details of a large expansion of its luxury footprint in the Asia-Pacific region.

The chain said that it expects to open 14 high-end properties across the Bulgari, EDITION, JW Marriott, Luxury Collection, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, and W brands by the end of 2023.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect over the next couple of years!

Marriott Expanding Luxury Presence in Asia-Pacific

Marriott’s presence lies across 13 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and it expects to have 14 additional luxury hotels open across the area by the end of next year, clearly reflecting a bullish outlook for the region’s high-end travel market over the next several years.

“Today’s luxury traveler is looking for authentic experiences that are personalized, thoughtful, and uniquely meaningful,” said Bart Buiring, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Asia Pacific, Marriott International, in a statement.

He went on to say that Marriott’s “Portfolio of highly distinctive brands is well-positioned to meet the evolving needs of travelers, and these expected additions reflect [its] optimism for the future of luxury travel.”

Here’s a look at what’s expected to open — and where — broken down by brand:

Bulgari Hotels & Resorts

Marriott’s exclusive Bulgari brand is expected to debut in Japan with the Bulgari Hotel Tokyo in 2023. The uber-luxurious hotel will have 98 guest rooms and an opulent Bulgari Suite housed in a “new ultra-skyscraper near Tokyo Station,” according to a press release from Marriott.


The hot EDITION brand is set to open 2 properties in Asia-Pacific in 2023. The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza will join the already-open Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon as Japan’s second EDITION property.

Southeast Asia will see its first EDITION property with the opening of The Singapore EDITION in 2023. Both properties will embody the brand’s hallmark features including dining, high design, and entertainment.

The Asia-Pacific region will be home to 4 new JW Marriott hotels by the end of 2023. The JW Marriott Bengaluru Prestige Golfshire Resort & Spa in India and JW Marriott Hotel Changsha in China have already opened this year. They’ll soon be joined by the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites in Thailand and the JW Marriott Jeju Resort & Spa in South Korea by the end of this year.

Next year, the brand expects to open the JW Marriott Goa Vagator in India and the JW Marriott Hotel Xi’an in China.

The Luxury Collection

The Luxury Collection brand welcomed a new property in India, the ITC Narmada, a Luxury Collection Hotel, in Ahmedabad, earlier this year. Located in the state of Gujarat, the hotel’s design is inspired by the traditions of the region.

The Ritz-Carlton

The storied Ritz-Carlton brand will open 3 new properties in Asia-Pacific by the end of next year. The brand will expand its footprint in Australia with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Melbourne in early 2023. And it’ll add to its portfolio in Japan with The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka, expected to open in 2023.

Additionally, The Ritz-Carlton Reserve will open in China’s Jiuzhaigou valley, making it the fourth property of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region.

St. Regis

The posh St. Regis brand is set to open a 49-acre beachfront resort in Goa, India in addition to the forthcoming St. Regis Jakarta in Indonesia, which is expected to open later this year.

W Hotels & Resorts

Marriott’s bringing its high-luxury, high-energy W brand to the Asian gaming mecca of Macau in 2023. Additionally, the W Sydney is poised to open in the Darling Harbour neighborhood next year.

Final Thoughts

Marriott has big plans for its luxury brands in the Asia-Pacific region for this year and next. As always, hotel opening dates are subject to change, so don’t be surprised if you see some of these dates slide further out.

However, we’re excited to see all of these hotels open their doors (hopefully on time) and redeem points to experience them ourselves!
