Sophisticated Luxury


You’d think spending $320 million to renovate a beachfront property into a luxurious JW Marriott-branded resort would be easy. However, the challenge is doing it without alienating the current Marriott property audience/guest. Paradise was up to the task, and we made it our goal to position a mid-level luxury brand to consumer and business audiences without overshadowing the resort’s existing offerings. With renovations being done in stages, we had to maintain a steady stream of media coverage and interest for current events and programs well before phased completions.
