Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR) announced a new program to work anywhere with Marriott Bonvoy that meets consumers where they are in their lives – juggling working and schooling from home and seeking a little inspiration to break-up the monotony. Marriott Bonvoy’s new Day Pass, Stay Pass and Play Pass packages were designed as flexible options whether guests are seeking a one day stay from early morning into the evening, extended overnight stay with an early morning check-in and evening checkout or a multi-day work and leisure destination getaway.
Marriott Bonvoy members and non-members in the company’s research community indicated they would consider working from a hotel guest room to address their current realities which include:
- Desire to break up the day-to-day monotony.
- Not having a dedicated workspace environment and feeling claustrophobic in small apartments.
- No boundary between work and personal life, especially for families managing remote learning for kids.
- Inability to focus and work uninterrupted on important presentations, projects and meetings.
- Competing for insufficient Wi-Fi.
Marriott Bonvoy’s Day Pass, Stay Pass and Play Pass packages were created with input from consumers, hotel operations and corporate partners. Consumers expressed what is important to them in considering a hotel guest room as their workspace:
- Fast and reliable Wi-Fi and technology.
- Clean and disinfected places to work.
- Ample desk space with a comfortable chair and plenty of nearby electrical outlets.
- Modern space with a view and natural light.
- Peace and quiet with no distractions.
- Access to coffee, bottled water and food.
- Access to hotel perks like the gym and pool.
Play Pass is for those seeking to work while also getting away – even with family. Available in participating luxury and resort locations worldwide, Play Pass recognizes that consumers currently have much more flexibility to travel, work and engage in school from anywhere they want. Increasingly, consumers are choosing to escape the confines of their home office or work desk and travel while making the most of work and playtime too. With Play Pass, guests enjoy a business concierge, supervised kids’ activities, preferred office/study spaces along with curated experiences for the whole family to enjoy. Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to earn Elite night credits and points on eligible charges along with access to standard member benefits.
In Bali, Play Pass is available at the following resorts: The Westin Resort & Spa Ubud, Bali, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali, Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, Courtyard By Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort, Courtyard By Marriott Bali Nusa Dua Resort, The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Bali and The Ritz-Carlton Bali.
As part of the curated family experience in Indonesia, The Ritz-Carlton Bali will be offering guests a selection of activities ranging from a surf initiation class – a brief but meaningful way to learn the basics of surf, daily mixology and culinary classes and wellness-inspired activities such as Yoga, stretching classes and mindfulness meditation.
