With the pilot #YourDreamDestinationAwaits campaign, more than 10 Marriott International hotels across Asia Pacific will bring locally relevant experiences from sister properties and destinations.
SINGAPORE- 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 the month of November and December, 13 Marriott International properties across Asia Pacific will recreate signature iconic destination elements of its sister properties for domestic travelers.
“We understand that the impact of the pandemic has been felt by many. Even though travel is not possible or difficult, ‘travel-lust’ remains strong and travelers are eager to travel and explore,” said Rajeev Menon, President Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International. “With this pilot campaign, we want to leverage Marriott International’s significant distribution of hotels across some of World’s most exciting destinations to spark travel inspirations on where Marriott can take them when international travel resumes. The year has been without a doubt very different, but we believe we will travel again.”
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 Asia Pacific, and more than 7,500 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.
“As the festive season approaches, this campaign is one way that we are encouraging domestic leisure experiences to engage with our guests,” said John Toomey, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International. “We believe guests are looking for something different at home and this fun and innovative campaign aims to provide a welcome respite.”
