Tina Edmundson, Global Brand Officer and Luxury Portfolio Leader, Marriott International said, “Our eight unique luxury brands provide distinct experiences that appeal to different types of luxury travellers, no matter if your priority is residing at the best address in town, completely immersing yourself in your destination, or prioritizing your wellbeing.

“From the world’s most iconic destinations to the ultimate undiscovered gems, we are focussed on elevating travel with highly contextualized, nuanced brand experiences that signal the future of luxury by allowing our guests to indulge their passions while sparking personal growth.”
