Looking for recs for best bang for the Bonvoy points hotels outside the US? I found the Rayong Marriott for only 17,500 points (not sure if it’s nice in person) but that’s what prompted this curiosity

JW Marriott in Phu Quoc. Just got named best hotel in SE Asia. Also one of the most unique places and stunning. It’s higher category but 5 star all the way- w/ 5 night I spent 140k points, best spent on points. Plus upgrade to a really nice suite. SE Asia hotels take really good care of their status members.

How was the lounge? And on site dining/drinks

I stayed at the JW in Kuala Lumpur this year for 17,500 a night. Solid hotel and great location

JW Marriott in Jaipur. Stunning property, super cheap
