Marriott Bonvoy, the award-winning travel program from Marriott International has recently launched Marriott Bonvoy on Wheels, in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. During the month-long Marriott Bonvoy on Wheels campaign, Mercedes-Benz V-Class will travel across 5 cities in Indonesia, starting its journey on September 30, 2021, from Jakarta to Bandung, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Bali, and will finally return to Jakarta as a conclusion of the journey on October 31, 2021.
Through its unmatched program, portfolio of extraordinary hotel brands, and endless experiences, Marriott Bonvoy helps guests explore Indonesia’s rich heritage and culinary experiences. Guided by the ethos that “travel is nourishment for the soul and community,” Marriott Bonvoy’s mission is to broaden guests’ horizons and offer a suite of unique experiences.
Ramesh Jackson, Area Vice President of Marriott International in Indonesia said, “The global impact of the pandemic over the last few years has made travel much different, but some things remain constant; the desire to find natural human connections, make new discoveries, and the thirst for rich experiences. Now more than ever before, we hope to re-introduce safe, meaningful travel experiences, that allows for the human connections we’ve been missing. The Marriott Bonvoy on Wheels’ road trip kicks off in Jakarta and will take guests on a journey across Java and Bali, while discovering “off the beaten track” and rustic eateries along the way as an integral part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of unique experiences. As we continue to curate unique and exciting experiences for our members, the collaboration with Mercedes-Benz; a likeminded partner, allows us to bring our vision of cultivating discovery, wonder and meaning through our common passion for travel.”
In collaboration with Mercedes-Benz, Marriott Bonvoy on Wheels, will travel across Java and Bali in style. Mercedes-Benz V-Class brings best-in-class roominess, comfort, and functionality with the Nappa leather upholstery for all seven seats, center console with refrigerator and THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control to mention only a few features. Its first-class materials and the ergonomic captain seats make the V-Class a comfort zone on every journey. The 7-seater V-Class offers adventure stories when coming onboard, thanks to its utility value and adventure factor of the V-Class resulting from its spaciousness, variability and practicality: there is space for anything. The philosophy around the design is a combination of functionality, comfort, safety and style in a way no other vehicle in this segment can offer. Thanks to its assistance and safety systems, such as ATTENTION ASSIST and Blind Spot Assist, the V-Class supports its occupants in many driving situations, so destinations are reached more safely, relaxed and in more style.
