Marriott’s Pearls of the Pacific collection of hotels and resorts
will soon be expanding. With 14 properties already and two on the
way, “Pearls of the Pacific” have been designed to offer clients
beauty and relaxation.
In April 2007, Marriott International will open a property in
Fiji, specializing in “approachable luxury.” The resort, located in
Momi Bay, will feature 250 rooms, with 61 one- and two-bedroom
villas equipped with private plunge pools and full kitchens.
Clients can also enjoy the 18-hole golf course, nightclub,
canoe-shaped rooms over the water, lagoons, pools, three
restaurants, fishing along the coastline and a famous surfing spot
nearby. Marriott is focusing on Fiji’s environment by offering spa
treatments infused with local elements.
The Renaissance Bali Resort & Spa is slated to open soon. The
property will be the only all-villa resort in Nusa Dua, boasting
126 luxury villas, each with private plunge pools.
Balinese-inspired architecture, thatched roofs and open-air showers
will be part of every villa. The resort will include a seafood
grill, cooking school, spa, two outdoor pools, lighted tennis court
and a watersports center.
After experiencing hurricane damage, CasaMagna Marriott Cancun and
the JW Marriott Hotel Cancun have reopened with about 60 percent of
the room counts back. In addition, the restaurants spas at each
resort are up and running.
Also in Mexico, the CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta will be
opening a 21,000-square-foot spa incorporating contemporary Asian
elements, 12 treatment rooms, fitness center, Pilates and yoga
studios, two tennis courts, indoor lap pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and
steam room, as well as a nail and hair salon. In addition, the
resort now features eight golf courses.
In Hawaii, the company is putting $50 million into the Wailea
Beach Marriott Resort & Spa and making renovations to the
Waikoloa Beach Marriott. Both properties will be using the new
“Revive” line of linens. The 10,000-square-foot Mandara Spa and all
rooms at the Wailea property are completed, although some
renovations and landscaping are still taking place. The Waikoloa
property will feature new rooms, lobby, pool and landscaping.
Officials say there is a lot of development in the area, so the
resort will be close to many new shops and restaurants.
The Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort in Costa Rica is
adding a smaller spa to fit with the resort’s eco-environment. The
resort is promoting youth golf by offering free golf and lessons
for kids 15 and under with a full-paying adult.
Marriott International is putting $30 million into Guam Marriott
Resort & Spa, which is billed as a romantic getaway with many
facilities for on-site weddings. 888-236-2427
