Stay in Japan and China

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.**


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.

JW Marriott Hotel 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.


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.
