Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort Golf Club & Spa in Florida has re-opened under the name JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, following a $320 million renovation facilitated by ownership group Mass Mutual.
JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort includes Spa by JW, the JW Marriott brand’s exclusive global spa concept, created to demystify and reimagine the spa experience with treatments based on four core benefit states: calm, indulge, renew and invigorate. Guests can customize their spa experience, choosing from a variety of menu options from full-service treatments to express spa services that start at a 12-minute entry point and are bookable without an appointment. Additional spa programming includes daily beach yoga and weekly spa events.
The South Florida hotel also has a 94-room, adult-exclusive tower (scheduled to open in the fall of 2017), offering a rooftop pool, restaurant and a 12,000-square-foot indoor entertainment center. Designed by Florida-based design and architecture firm Edge of Architecture Inc., the new tower will have views of the Gulf of Mexico.
Once completed, the resort will have a total of 100,000 square feet of event space—equipped with the latest technology—and 810 guest rooms and suites.
In 2015, the resort began phase one of a three-phase makeover and brand conversion project, including expanded pool decks, a refurbished lobby, a new porte-cochere and grand front entrance. The second phase, which concluded on December 31, 2016, welcomed a complete transformation of guest rooms and resort culinary offerings, including the addition of two new signature restaurants—Ario and Maia—as well as an all-new beachfront tiki bar called Kane.
