Travel for design: inspiring architecture from Marriott International Luxury Brands

Marriott International Luxury Brands has always considered consumer wants and needs when designing their exquisite hotels. For travellers more interested in the destination than the journey, well-thought-out architecture can make all the difference.

Today’s traveller is always searching for the next best thing: an authentic, one-of-a-kind experience they will never forget. They want genuine connections with people and place, and accommodation that highlights the cultural narrative of their chosen destination. As these curated vacation requirements become commonplace, Marriott International Luxury Brands are responding by ensuring their hotel designs are more personal and intentional.

If you’re looking for unique design and authentic, place-based experiences to immerse yourself in, W Melbourne, W Osaka and Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa have you covered. These hotels each take design cues from their surroundings, incorporating street art from Melbourne, neon lights from Osaka, and muted colour palettes from the seas of the Maldives.

For the more sociable traveller, look no further than W Bali – Seminyak, AC Hotel Melbourne Southbank and Aloft Tokyo Ginza. These hotels are designed to foster a greater sense of belonging among guests and the cities they are visiting. Create unforgettable memories with loved ones at Woobar Bali, mix and mingle in the AC Lounge, and discover the ‘traditional meets conceptual’ sculptures and art pieces dotted throughout Aloft Tokyo Ginza.

At JW Marriott Hotel Nara, The Ritz-Carlton, Nikko and JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa, architects have intentionally looked to bring nature indoors. With a focus on wellbeing, these hotels feature soothing interiors and nature-inspired motifs, such as the infamous deer of Nara Park at the Flying Stag lobby lounge, a traditional onsen inspired by the healing surroundings of Lake Chuzenji and Mount Nantai, and an abundance of outdoor areas overlooking Phuket’s tropical gardens and the Indian Ocean.
