For every type of traveler, there’s a resort somewhere in the world ready to cater to your needs. Now more than ever, this is true for Marriott International, which has welcomed a variety of properties into its portfolio since merging with Starwood.
In fact, Marriott International now offers accommodations (more than 7,000) in beloved destinations all over the world for so many types of travelers, and you might not even be aware of them, especially how booking through Marriott International and joining the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program can make your vacations-of-a-lifetime even better, before you even embark.
Here is just a sampling of travelers who can benefit from Marriott Bonvoy and the convenience (and savings) offered by booking directly through Marriott International.
You’re a simple leisure traveler and you only need one thing to be happy: A beautiful beach. Maybe you’re looking for a combination of relaxation and adventure on the water, so take a water taxi to the private island at Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, where you can also mingle with Aruba’s biggest stars—the pink flamingos.
If you’d like to squeeze in a round of golf between naps in a cabana, the Royal at Atlantis has clubs and shoes ready for your tee time. If all you care about is a great meal following a day spent snoozing on the sand, then the new AC Hotel Kingston’s AC Lounge will provide delicious tapas and creative cocktails.
You’re a brave, bold, adventurous traveler and ready to take on the world—in some cases, literally. Dipping your toes in the ocean offers you no thrills, so your heart is set on visiting captivating jungles or riding the waves of the world’s most popular surf locations, all while catching selfies that’ll make your friends and family incredibly jealous. Costa Rica’s Santa Rosa National Park and Miravalles Volcano are a stone’s throw from El Mangroove, an Autograph Collection property, while Le Méridien Bangkok drops you in the heart of Thailand, where tall-ship tours will show you islands you’ve only dreamed of.
Or surround yourself with the awesomeness of Oahu by grabbing a room at the Ko Olina Beach Club, where guests are just a few miles from epic hiking and biking trails, as well as world-class surfing.
Families with Various Tastes
We know how hard it is to plan a family vacation, especially with children of varying ages, because everyone expects something different. From Florida’s Captiva Island to California’s Coronado Island Resort & Spa, Marriott International offers more than 800 family-friendly travel hotels and resorts with enough amenities to please everyone, from your energized toddler, to parents who would love just an hour to themselves for a quick spa retreat, a round of golf, or just pure, blissful silence.
You’ve spent years, maybe even decades, staring at the same photos of overwater bungalows until you just couldn’t take it anymore. Your lone travel dream has always been to visit Fiji and spend your nights in a lagoon villa, or maybe you’re fine with a beachfront bure. Whatever the accommodation, there’s a property in Fiji that will fit your needs and budget. For bungalows, Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay can fulfill your dream.
Bringing the entire family? Sheraton Denarau Villas has more spacious accommodations. Look out over the beach from your own private patio at the Sheraton Fiji Resort, or kick up the romance by choosing a spa hotel like an adults-only spa studio suite at the Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa.
Newlyweds and Hopeless Romantics
A perfect honeymoon is all about the little things that couples hotels offer that make us forget everyone else in the world. A classic Hawaiian honeymoon awaits in a romantic villa at Kauai Lagoons – Kalanipu’u, or head right from your reception to a week of pampering in Palm Springs, where Triada Palm Springs is set against the San Jacinto Mountains and offers a variety of massage services at Studio M. Your dog is even welcome at the pet-friendly Triada Palm Springs, an Autograph Collection, just in case little Fluffers McScrunchyface was your ring bearer.
Better yet, choose a romantic vacation getaway to a destination you’ve never imagined, such as Mauritius, where the Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa mixes modern elegance and serenity with spectacular accents derived from local elements, all while directing your attention to the stunning body of water from which the resort takes its name. Or, for absolute seclusion, target Thailand’s Nai Yang Beach and check in to the Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, where the lagoon pool offers a front-row seat to the sunset of a lifetime. Your lifetime, together.
