Marriott has announced the signing of deals to open three new luxury resorts in Vietnam.

The signings mark the expected debut of two new brands into Vietnam – Ritz-Carlton Reserve and The Luxury Collection – on the little-known Hon Thom Island in Phu Quoc.

Additionally, Marriott also announced Vietnam’s third JW Marriott Hotel, set for Trang An, the UNESCO World Heritage destination in northern Vietnam.

The Luxury Collection Resort, Hon Thom Island

The resort is slated to open in 2029 and will be located on the Northwest coast of Hon Thom Island.

The Luxury Collection Resort, Hon Thom Island is expected to feature 305 rooms and suites, ranging from 50 to 250 square meters and including family accommodations. Plans call for two pool areas, a kids’ club, activity center, fitness center and a spa with seven treatment rooms, whirlpools, saunas and steam rooms. Six restaurants and bars will offer diverse dining options, and 1,690 square meters of flexible event space includes a 900-square meter ballroom and three smaller function rooms.

Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Hon Thom Island

Anticipated to open in 2028 and slated to be designed by Bill Bensley, the new Ritz-Carlton Reserve will be located on an intimate estate close to the Southern tip of Hon Thom Island.

The resort expects to offer a curated collection of 40 pool villas. Plans also include two resort pools, a spa, salon, fitness center, three restaurants, three bars and Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment educational programme for kids, which will feature a two-storey activity center and garden. The resort is also slated to feature a 300-square meter event space suitable for beach front weddings.

Hon Thom is just off the South coast of Phu Quoc island and is connected to the main island by cable car.

Phu Quoc airport recently upgraded its facilities and runway to be able to accommodate widebody aircraft. In recent route updates, Korean Air announced a daily A330-300 service from Seoul, and European charter operators now offer A350-900 flights to Phu Quoc, including from Bratislava.

JW Marriott Trang An Resort & Spa

Slated to open in 2028, JW Marriott Trang An Resort & Spa is to be nestled amid lush wetlands and verdant hills and current plans call for 150 rooms and suites, plus a collection of 35 one- and two-bedroom villas, with options for private pools.

Plans for the resort also include two restaurants, a café, lobby lounge and two bars, while leisure facilities are expected to include two pool zones, the brand’s signature Spa by JW with six treatment rooms, a fitness center, kids’ club with outdoor playground, and a recreational activity center. In addition, the hotel is slated to feature 850-square meters of event space, comprising a 500-square meter ballroom and two meeting rooms.

Trang An is located approximately 90km East of Hanoi and is famed for its sugarloaf mountains, rice fields, caves, rivers and wetlands, as well as its historical temples and palaces.

The three signings add to Marriott’s robust pipeline in Vietnam, accounting for more than 50 properties in the country. Today, Marriott operates close to 20 properties in the country, across eight brands and 10 destinations.
