Forget the hassle of travel documents, immigration woes, and long flights. Guests can now experience signature elements of some of our guests’ favourite destinations through Marriott International’s #YourDreamDestinationAwaits campaign. Throughout November and December, 13 Marriott International properties across the Asia Pacific will recreate signature iconic destination elements of its sister properties for domestic travellers.
Trendlines point to a domestic travel surge with countries embarking on campaigns to drive domestic tourism and explore their ‘own backyards’. With more than 800 properties across the Asia Pacific, and more than 7,400 properties across the globe, Marriott International is leveraging its strong global footprint in exciting destinations to deliver a unique ‘holiday at home’ travel experience concept.
From the moment a guest books a stay to their check-in and check-out experience, the different hotels will recreate signature experiences and moments reminiscent of their ‘dream destination’. Some of these include the distinctive uniform associates wear, music suited to the destination played throughout the lobby, recognizable decor, or iconic food curated and served.
This pilot campaign will feature 13 hotels across the Marriott International portfolio in the Asia Pacific, recreating more than 10 of our guests’ favourite destinations at home from Bali, Bangkok, Seoul, Paris to New York. In Indonesia, the program is available at the following hotels:
