JW Marriott Opens Beach Resort on Marco Island, FL

MARCO ISLAND, FL—JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort has opened here. Following a $320-million renovation facilitated by ownership group Mass Mutual, the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa has converted to a 726-room, Balinese-style JW Marriott property.

Culinary programming at the property will include private sommelier-led wine tastings and Chef’s Table experiences at signature restaurant Ario, helmed by Chef de Cuisine Gerald Sombright. The culinary offerings extend beachside with fish-grilling classes, rum tastings and private dinners along the shoreline.

The beach resort offers the Spa by JW, which guests can customize. Additional spa programming includes daily beach yoga and weekly spa events.

The property will also feature a 94-room, adults-only tower, scheduled to open in the fall of 2017—offering a rooftop pool, restaurant and a 12,000-sq.ft. indoor entertainment center. Once completed, the resort will have 100,000 sq. ft. of event space, and 810 guestrooms and suites.
