Marriott International is launching its Courtyard by Marriott, Marriott Marquis and JW Marriott brands in Thailand. The move is via a new deal with Asset World Corporation (AWC), a Thailand-based lifestyle real estate group, for three hotels comprised of nearly 1,550 rooms expected to open 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.

Targeted to open in late 2020, the Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town will be the product of a renovation of the Metropole Phuket Hotel, which is in the heart of Phuket Town, surrounded by historic Chino-Portuguese buildings and scenic streets. Plans call for the property to offer 248 guest rooms, two food and beverage outlets and approximately 21,500 square feet of meeting space.

These two properties are planned for Central Pattaya within AWC’s Mega Scale Mixed-Use Destination, which is modeled after the Asiatique The Riverfront in Bangkok. The JW Marriott The Pattaya Beach Resort & Spa and Pattaya Marriott Marquis Hotel together are expected to offer 1,298 guest rooms; 11 food and beverage outlets; and approximately 107,600 square feet of convention, event and meeting spaces once opened.
