Marriott international signs contract with Sekisui house to bring the Ritz-Carlton brand to Fukuoka with 162-room hotel

Marriott International has announced it has signed an agreement with one of Japan’s most acclaimed property developers, Sekisui House, to open a new Ritz-Carlton hotel in Fukuoka – a deal that would bring the iconic brand’s legendary service and signature luxury to this exciting part of Japan for the first time. The hotel will be developed and owned by Daimyo Project TMK, a consortium of five companies including Sekisui House, Ltd., the project manager for the hotel. The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka, which would be the brand’s seventh hotel in Japan, is slated to open in Spring 2023.

“We are thrilled to announce the signing of The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka, with Sekisui House, a longtime developer of Marriott International hotels,” said Craig S. Smith, President & MD of Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “The signing of this property underscores continued demand for The Ritz-Carlton brand 20 years after it first entered Japan and Fukuoka, with its rising inbound tourism, is an especially ideal location.”
“We are delighted to bring The Ritz-Carlton brand to Fukuoka, as part of this exciting development project in the city,” said Yoshihiro Nakai, President and Representative Director, Sekisui House. “Through our long-standing collaboration with Marriott International, we are certain that The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will raise the bar for luxury hospitality, and inspire meaningful journeys for both leisure and business visitors to this wonderful city.”

The Ritz-Carlton, Fukuoka will be part of a new, 24-story tower that will include high-end retail and office space. The tower is set to rise within “Tenjin Big Bang,” a redevelopment project led by Fukuoka City aimed at creating an attractive urban lifestyle destination within the city’s core commercial and business districts. 
This signing also underscores Marriott International’s growing luxury portfolio in Japan, where the company now has eight open luxury hotels – including four Ritz-Carlton Hotels in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Okinawa, The St. Regis Osaka, and three Luxury Collection hotels, including The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho, Suiran Kyoto, and IRAPH SUI, Miyako Okinawa – along with eight more luxury projects in the signed pipeline.
