Luxury Hotels in Japan and China
As a Member, your Points* can take you from the beaches of the East China Sea to the 75th floor of a hotel in Shenzhen. Four new Marriott-branded hotels were recently added to your holiday options in Japan and China, so you can plan a seaside getaway or luxurious escape.**
SUNSET VIEWS IN OKINAWA
A romantic beach retreat begins at Sheraton® Okinawa Sunmarina Resort. Situated on the beaches of the East China Sea, this tropical resort offers easy access to nearby entertainment, including a variety of water sports and the AEON MALL Okinawa Rycom. Reconnect over a meal of traditional Okinawan cuisine at Dining Room SENSES or savor local seafood at The Grill — complete with a live kitchen. At the end of the day, toast to a memorable holiday at Sunset Bar & Terrace, where signature cocktails are complemented by views of the sunset over the East China Sea. When you want to enjoy the outdoors, settle in near the resort-style pool, complete with a tropical background, or visit nearby Cape Manzamo for picturesque views of the water and cliffs.
AUTHENTIC JAPANESE DINING IN NARA
Explore Japan’s historic sites in luxury at the JW Marriott® Hotel Nara. Though Kyoto, Japan, offers a rich collection of traditional sites, Nara is close behind. From your home base at the hotel, you’re well-positioned to explore large Shinto shrines; early emperor palaces; and Nara Park, known for its wild deer. A variety of dining experiences awaits at the hotel as well. After returning from a day of exploration, Flying Stag offers a casual atmosphere to enjoy traditional tea and a selection of sweets. For a truly Japanese dining experience, head to Azekura, which features separate teppanyaki, sushi, and kaiseki dining areas. If you prefer an upscale meal, Silk Road Dining harnesses local and international techniques to prepare meals with fresh ingredients in an open kitchen. The hotel also offers a 24-hour fitness center, an indoor pool, and a luxury spa.
A STAY WORTHY OF ROYALTY IN DALIAN
From its landmark location on Lotus Mountain, The Castle Hotel, a Luxury Collection® Hotel, Dalian, overlooks Xinghai Bay and the Yellow Sea. The hotel itself features a palatial Bavarian castle façade, housing a state-of-the-art fitness center, a sparkling indoor pool, and Collections Signature Restaurant, which serves an extensive global menu. Explore Xinghai Square — the largest city square in the world — just steps from the hotel, where entertainment, art, and attractions offer fun for the family. In addition to urban adventure, Dalian also offers parks and beaches near Xinghai Square, as well as Houshi Mountain and the Grand Black Mountain. Well-appointed rooms will welcome you back after a day around Dalian, where plush bedding is complemented by sweeping ocean, mountain, or city views.
LUXURY 75 FLOORS ABOVE SHENZHEN
Tucked away inside Shenzhen’s Luohu District Financial Center, the landmark St. Regis® Shenzhen hotel occupies floors 75 through 100 of the KK100 building. This exceptional location offers access to the city’s best shopping and dining, such as the KK Mall, reachable via a short elevator ride. On the top floors of the hotel, world-class restaurants and lounges overlook breathtaking views and serve international cuisine, Chinese creations, and Italian bites. In addition to luxury rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and 300-thread-count linens, guests will enjoy the signature St. Regis Butler Service and access to the elegant Iridium spa with a variety of services and a Vichy shower — all elements of an unforgettable stay.
