*ASMALLWORLD AG (SWX:ASWN) announces that the iconic North Island Resort
joins Marriott's The Luxury Collection*

*Zurich, 05.12.2019 - ASMALLWORLD AG (SWX: ASWN) today announced that the
iconic North Island resort joined Marriott International's The Luxury
Collection brand portfolio. The world-renowned Seychelles luxury resort,
managed by ASMALLWORLD, can now be booked through Marriott's distribution
channels, which will broaden the awareness of the resort and its unique,
sustainable management philosophy.*

North Island (www.north-island.com [1]) is one of the world's most iconic
luxury destinations. It is Africa's most exclusive private island, located
30 kilometres from the mainland, offering private barefoot luxury for the
most demanding travellers who are immediately rewarded with a sense of
escapism when arriving on the island.

The resort offers a pioneering conservation program as well as the highest
standards of hospitality, earning it status as an award-winning sustainable
travel destination. The mission to demonstrate that luxury and conscience
can co-exist, lies at the heart of North Island's philosophy.

In February 2019, ASMALLWORLD took over the management of North Island
through its subsidiary ASW Hospitality AG and has since upgraded the
technological infrastructure, strengthened the operational team and carried
out property upgrades, to ensure that the resort meets the highest
hospitality and safety standards.

Under the new partnership with Marriott, North Island now joins The Luxury
Collection, which is comprised of world-renowned hotels offering unique,
authentic experiences that evoke lasting, treasured memories. The
partnership will further increase the awareness of the iconic resort and its
unique character and philosophy.

North Island can now be booked through Marriott's established and
far-reaching distribution channels and the resort will also participate in
Marriott's Bonvoy loyalty program. The operational responsibility of the
resort will remain with ASMALLWORLD.

"North Island has always skilfully combined a sustainable and
environmentally conscious management philosophy with the ambition to provide
a truly immersive, barefoot-luxury experience. Whilst maintaining our
identity and ethos, our partnership with The Luxury Collection will allow us
to maximise our awareness in our continued efforts in pioneering sustainable
luxury travel." - Jan Luescher, CEO of ASMALLWORLD

"North Island is one of the most rare and luxurious destinations in the
world, making it a natural fit for The Luxury Collection and our global
explorers who seek authentic experiences and connections to both pristine
nature and elevated personalisation," said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand
Leader, The Luxury Collection. "This is the first private island within The
Luxury Collection portfolio, and we're delighted to be expanding our
footprint of captivating destinations with storied pasts and protected

*North Island, one of the world's most iconic resorts*

North Island, a Luxury Collection Resort is located approximately 30
kilometres North East of Mahe Island, the main and largest island of
Seychelles. Arriving at the property is both simple and tailored for guests,
with the site being a 15-minute helicopter transfer or a one-hour boat trip
from Mahe Island.

Since its opening in 1997, North Island has been a recognised sustainable
tourism destination. North Island boasts fertile land and has been referred
to as a 'laboratory of evolution' due to its rich biodiversity and natural,
stunning aesthetics. The tropical retreat is set in 210 hectares of lush
vegetation and is home to coconut palms and takamaka trees, all surrounded
by pristine beaches and the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. In 2006, the
island implemented a conservation and island rehabilitation program to
protect endangered and endemic species on the island and to preserve its
diverse ecosystem.

North Island features eleven 450 sqm private guest villas, offering each
guest an unparalleled sense of exclusivity and luxury. The island also
houses a lounge, dining room and library, health spa and gym, an infinity
pool and a sunset bar and restaurant located away on the western side of the
island. 2020 rates start at USD 6,000 per night.
