Marriott seals six-hotel deal with Prestige Group to expand in India

Marriott International and Indian real estate firm Prestige Group have signed agreements to open six new hotels across India.

Under these agreements, Prestige Group will build new hotels bearing the W, JW Marriott, Tribute Portfolio and Moxy brands across India’s Southern belt, representing nearly 1,000 rooms.

Marriott and Prestige Group sign deal to open six hotels in India, including the W Bengaluru in 2025, which will be India’s third W-branded property after W Goa (pictured) and the slated opening of W Mumbai in 2022

The six properties in the pipeline include the 185-key W Bengaluru (opening in 2025), the 102-room Tribute Portfolio Resort Bengaluru (opening in 2021), the 32-key Tribute Portfolio Hotel Kochi Maradu (opening in 2022), the 299-room resort JW Marriott Bengaluru Prestige Golfshire Resort & Spa (opening in 2022), as well as the 125-room Moxy Chennai and 200-room Moxy Bengaluru (both opening in 2024) – of which the latter two will mark the millennial-oriented Moxy brand’s debut in India.

“This agreement marks a new chapter in our plan to expand in India, a critical growth market for Marriott International where we currently have 120 hotels across 16 brands. We are especially thrilled to have signed two Moxy locations – which will introduce our 17th brand in South Asia,” said Rajeev Menon, president, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International.
