Marriott International has achieved a significant milestone by
opening its 1,000th hotel in the Asia-Pacific region with The
Ritz-Carlton in Melbourne.
“The opening of Marriott International’s 1000th hotel in Asia Pacific
is a true milestone, underscoring our confidence in the overall travel
outlook, our ability to take hospitality to new heights with our
associates and owners, and the power of Marriott Bonvoy in 2023 and
beyond,” said Rajeev Menon, president, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater
China), Marriott International. “We’re particularly thrilled to be
expanding our footprint in new and emerging markets.
The company says it is stepping up its presence in Asia Pacific with
the addition of 100 hotels in 2023, equivalent to roughly two hotels per
week. Key markets include Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand,
Singapore, China, and India.
Marriott International's growth strategy will encompass its brand
portfolio, including luxury brands such as The Ritz-Carlton and W
Hotels, premium brands like Sheraton and Le Méridien, and select service
brands such as Courtyard by Marriott and Fairfield by Marriott.
As part of the celebration of the milestone, Marriott Bonvoy members
can earn 1,000 bonus points and an additional Elite Night Credit.
Additionally, guests can join in the festivities by enjoying a specially
created limited edition celebratory beverage – The Melb-presso 1000 –
inspired by the coffee culture of Melbourne, available in both alcoholic
and non-alcoholic versions across all 1,000 Marriott International
hotels and resorts in Asia-Pacific until 23 April.
