Perfect Holidays Home & Abroad

Travel Somewhere New (or Familiar)

By Tyler Bohlman

It’s been challenging to travel in recent months. Not only has it been hard to expand your horizons and visit new and exciting places, but it’s possible that you haven’t been to your favorite resort spot in a while. The good news is there has never been a better time to travel than now.

Marriott Vacation Club at Surfers Paradise

Marriott’s Phuket Beach Club

Revisit Your Favorite Resort

Before thinking about venturing to somewhere new, it may be time to rediscover what made you fall in love with your preferred holiday resort in the first place.

Immerse yourself in the big city lights of Bangkok, Thailand, at Marriott Vacation Club® at The Empire Place©, or surround yourself with the lush jungles and relaxing beaches of Phuket at Marriott’s Mai Khao Beach – Phuket or Marriott’s Phuket Beach Club.

Feel at home again while island hopping in Indonesia at Marriott’s Bali Nusa Dua Gardens or Marriott’s Bali Nusa Dua Terrace.

Or perhaps you want to explore the sparkling lagoons near Australia’s Gold Coast at Marriott Vacation Club® at Surfers Paradise.

Each of these destinations bring magic to your holiday.

Say Aloha to Hawai‘i

Visit the USA’s 50th state and discover what makes the Hawaiian Islands so memorable. You can catch a glimpse of history on the Big Island with a stay at Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club. See the memorial wall at Pearl Harbor or learn of the island’s transition from independent nation under King Kamehameha to a U.S. state. Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club lets you explore the natural terrain of the Valley Isle — and there’s nothing stopping you from getting a bit of surfing in as well. Finally, see the natural side of Hawai‘i and stay at Marriott’s Kaua‘i Beach Club. The rivers and trees are only a small taste of the island’s beauty.

Relax in the Caribbean, Mexico, or South America

Hawai‘i isn’t the only place to find beachside adventures. Experience the best of Mexico with a stay at The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort. Stroll the sun-kissed beaches during the day and let yourself go after-hours with Cancún’s restaurant and nightlife scene.

Marriott Vacation Club at Los Sueños is your gateway to a Costa Rican paradise. Take a dip in blue ocean waters or witness the array of colors on the natural plant wildlife found in the nearby jungle.

Or feel the warmth of the Caribbean without booking a cruise. Enjoying a holiday at Marriott’s Frenchman’s Cove in St. Thomas puts you in the middle of the U.S. Virgin Islands without having to spend a day or two at sea.

Explore Europe

If being surrounded by beaches isn’t your idea of a grand holiday, then why not visit some of Europe’s most sought-after locations. Marriott’s Playa Andaluza may be on the coast, but the city itself boasts a thriving market, authentic Spanish cuisine, and historical churches to explore.

Stay in a townhouse at Marriott’s Village d’Ile-de-France and add a little magic to your holiday. Staying just over 6 kilometres away from Disneyland® Paris, this quaint resort brings you close to can’t-miss attractions for kids of all ages.
