Marriott International to Expand Portfolio in Vietnam with Three New Luxury Hotels

November 2023

Marriott International has announced agreements to open three new luxury resorts in Vietnam. This marks the debut of two new brands into Vietnam – Ritz-Carlton Reserve and The Luxury Collection. Additionally, Marriott also announced Vietnam’s third JW Marriott Hotel set for Trang An, a UNESCO World Heritage destination in northern Vietnam.

The agreements were signed by President and CEO of Marriott International Anthony Capuano during a recent visit to the country. Chairmen from BITEXCO Group and Sun Group also oversaw the signings during two ceremonies that took place in Hanoi and Phu Quoc.

Slated to open in 2028, JW Marriott Trang An Resort & Spa is being developed by BITEXCO Group, which also owns the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi. Nestled amid lush wetlands and verdant hills, this luxury retreat includes plans for 150 spacious rooms and suites, plus a collection of 35 one- and two-bedroom villas, with options for private pools.

Meanwhile, the resort on Hon Thom Island will be part of The Luxury Collection brand and is scheduled to open in 2029. Located on the northwest coast of Hon Thom Island, this luxury resort expects to feature 305 rooms and suites, ranging from 50 to 250 square meters and includes family accommodations.

Anticipated to open in 2028 and slated to be designed by Bill Bensley, the new Ritz-Carlton Reserve is set to offer a complete escape and immerse visitors in a private world of luxury and natural beauty. Located on an intimate estate close to the south tip of Hon Thom Island, with stunning sea views of Phu Quoc’s southern archipelago, the resort expects to offer a curated collection of 40 pool villas.

These signings add to Marriott’s robust pipeline in Vietnam, accounting for more than 50 properties in the country. Today, Marriott operates close to 20 properties in the country, across eight brands and 10 destinations.
