Important to note that, as expected, "Hotel does not participate in The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Program"

It does participate. They havent still decided the tier level yet.

You can choose a redemption stay by calling marriott customer care.

The website has many issues - it lists the haikou property as not participating even though its tier 1.

When you choose use my points it tells that call customer care to book.

When I called they said they can book even though the number of points needed was unknown at this point of time.

I'll be staying there next month.. really looking forward to it! Hope it won't disappoint as I can't set my expectations beforehand given it's new and there are no reviews yet on TripAdvisor

Any thoughts Jennifer? Have a stay booked at the Andaman, but thinking of cancelling, transferring SPG points to Marriott Rewards and booking the RC instead. How would you rate the RC?
