Marriott International plans to open 13 luxury hotels across Asia-Pacific by year's end. The company's current portfolio of 130 luxury hotels across 10 countries and territories in the region is poised to grow  with new openings from the JW Marriott, The Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, and The Luxury Collection brands.         

The Ritz-Carlton brand has four anticipated openings. The Ritz-Carlton, Perth, which is expected to open in October, will mark the brand’s return to Australia. The brand also is slated for China and India with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Xi’an in June, The Ritz-Carlton, Nanjing in October and The Ritz-Carlton, Pune in September.

JW Marriott will add five properties, including the newly opened JW Marriott Hotel Qufu and soon-to-open JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Shanghai Pudong in July. The Pudong property will be the first JW Marriott Marquis in Asia, and the third globally. The brand also is slated to debut in the Maldives in August.
