Marriott International has announced plans to open three new luxury resorts in Vietnam, introducing two new brands to the country. Here are the details of these new developments:
1. JW Marriott Trang An Resort & Spa: This luxury resort is set to open in 2028 in Trang An, a UNESCO World Heritage site in northern Vietnam. The resort will feature 150 rooms and suites, along with 35 one- and two-bedroom villas, some of which will offer private pools. The property will include multiple dining options, two pool areas, a spa, fitness center, kids’ club, recreational activity center, and approximately 10,000 square feet of event space.
2. The Luxury Collection Resort on Hon Thom Island: Owned by Sun Group, this luxury resort is expected to open in 2029 on Hon Thom Island. It will feature 305 rooms and suites, including family accommodations, with various amenities such as pools, a kids’ club, fitness center, and a spa with treatment rooms, whirlpools, saunas, and steam rooms. The resort will offer diverse dining options, and it will have around 18,000 square feet of event space, including a large ballroom.
3. Ritz-Carlton Reserve on Hon Thom Island: This Ritz-Carlton Reserve is set to open in 2028 on Hon Thom Island, offering 40 pool villas with sea views of Phu Quoc’s southern archipelago. The resort will provide multiple pools, a spa, fitness center, restaurants, bars, and an educational program for kids led by Jean-Michel Cousteau. It will also have a space suitable for beachfront weddings.
Hon Thom Island is located off the south coast of Phu Quoc, connected to the main island by a cable car. Trang An, on the other hand, is known for its natural beauty, historical sites, and is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
These developments signify Marriott International’s commitment to expanding its presence in Vietnam. With over 50 properties in its pipeline, Vietnam is a significant market for the hotel group. Currently, Marriott operates close to 20 properties in the country, spanning eight different brands and ten destinations.
