Marriott International has signed agreements with Thai hospitality firm Asset World Corporation (AWC) to open three hotels comprising nearly 1,550 rooms in Thailand between late 2020 and 2024.
Under the agreements, AWC is expected to open a 248-room Courtyard by Marriott in late 2020 in Phuket, as well as a 900-room Marriott Marquis hotel and a 398-room JW Marriott hotel, both in Pattaya.
Situated at the heart of Phuket Town, the Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town is expected to fly the Courtyard by Marriott brand flag following a strategic renovation of the Metropole Phuket Hotel. The hotel will offer two F&B outlets and approximately 2,000m² of meeting space.
Expected to rise in Central Pattaya within AWC’s mega-scale, mixed-use destination, the JW Marriott The Pattaya Beach Resort & Spa and Pattaya Marriott Marquis Hotel combined will offer 1,298 guest rooms; 11 F&B outlets; and approximately 10,000m² of convention, event and meeting spaces.
AWC’s mega-scale, mixed-use destination project comprises an array of indoor and outdoor retail spaces, as well as luxury accommodations. The construction of the project is expected to be completed in 4Q2023 and be ready to open in 2Q2024.
AWC is one of the largest owners of Marriott International properties in Asia-Pacific (excluding China), with more than 4,200 rooms across Thailand.
