Marriott to operate Iraph Sui island resort in Okinawa

Marriott International has secured a management contract for its first luxury resort on the Japanese island of Miyakojima.

Owned by real estate giant The Mori Trust Group and scheduled to open in late 2018, the new Iraph Sui spa resort will be operated under Marriott’s The Luxury Collection brand.

Located on the southwestern coastline of Miyakojima – one of the hundreds of islands which form the Okinawa prefecture – the resort will offer 57 guest rooms, nine suites with private plunge pools, 10 luxury junior suites and an executive suite.

A large spa will anchor the resort’s wellness offer, with facilities including a 72ft (22m) outdoor swimming pool and a health club. According to a spokesperson, the exact details of the development will be confirmed in early 2018.

Mitzi Gaskins, global brand leader of The Luxury Collection, said the island resort is part of Marriott’s plans to tap into the growing Asian luxury travel market.

“The luxury vacation market in Japan is a well-established one, and travelers are always looking for new destinations and authentic experiences,” Gaskins said.

“This latest addition to The Luxury Collection in Japan will enhance the brand’s position and provide an indigenous experience to luxury travelers.”

The Mori Trust Group is one of Japan’s largest real estate and hotel companies and currently owns, operates, or leases 22 hotels across Japan.
