The agreement marks the first appearance of two brands in Vietnam, Ritz-Carlton Reserve and The Luxury Collection on Hon Thom Island, a tropical paradise off Phu Quoc.
The third hotel, under the JW Marriott brand, is situated in peaceful in Trang An, in the northern province of Ninh Binh, and is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
According to Rajeev Menon, president of Asia Pacific (excluding China), Marriott International, "Vietnam is an attractive destination for international tourists because of its natural scenery and cultural relics of indigenous characters."
“At the same time, the need to experience high-class international brands is also a potential need for domestic tourists. We are excited to expand our luxury brands in Vietnam as this dynamic country is a potential market for high-end tourism, with outstanding growth in the international and domestic tourist markets,” Menon added.
Expected to come into operation in 2028, JW Marriott Trang An Resort & Spa is being developed by Bitexco Group, also an investor in JW Marriott Hanoi.
