Need to raise bathroom floor to meet hall floor and add tile

With the marble floor in place, the hall bathroom floor is 1 1/8" higher than the hall floor. If I remove the marble tile, it will be 1 3/8" higher. Some of the marble is missing like under where the old cabinets used to sit.

If I use self-leveling concrete, will I need to do level the floor multiple times and wait for the mortar to dry between each one? This is going to take along time and a lot of mortar.

I have posted this question before, but I still don't know the best way to make up 1 1/8" - 1 3/8" difference in height.

The new tile is about 5/16" thick, but I don't know how thick the thinset will be.
