Now, through our partnership with Sanctuary, guests can choose their destination in a way they never could before, and have it come to life during their stay,” says Brian Povinelli, Aries, and Senior Vice President, Global Head of Marketing and Brand at Marriott International, “Sanctuary was truly our ‘compatible sign’ for this initiative, as they share the same optimistic, colorful and playful point of view about the world as Moxy. We can’t wait for our guests all around the world to see it first-hand.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Moxy Hotels to help give their guests fun, astrologically-curated guides and have the best experiences and adventures during their stay in incredible locations around the world.” Adds Ross Clark, Leo, and Sanctuary CEO. “With both physical and digital offerings, guests can get in touch with their cosmic side like never before.

2024 marks a year of major astrological transition. A true cosmic roller coaster, Mercury kicked off the year zooming out of retrograde and into adventurous Sagittarius on January 1, with transformative eclipses in the spring and Pluto bolding stepping into rule-breaking Aquarius until 2043 also signifying major changes that will help shape an individual’s future for decades to come. “If there was ever a year for the stars to help inform travel, it would be 2024,” says Lauren Ash, Sanctuary astrologer. “The constant transition will encourage people to get out of their comfort zone, make bold choices, and set the tone for their future. Transformative travel doesn’t happen without big moves – your personal astrology can hold the key to taking that leap!”
As the year progresses, the Moxy x Sanctuary partnership will continue to provide fresh and exciting opportunities for astro-inspired travel. This includes engaging social media activations and partnerships, as well as a revamped Moxy-hotels.Marriott.com that will feature immersive and interactive articles, captivating lists, quizzes, and exclusive astrocartography-based hotel insights courtesy of Traveler.Marriott.com.
