Marriott International is Entering the All-Inclusive Game

Marriott International is set to join the all-inclusive scene with the announcement of five new all-inclusive resorts scheduled to open between 2022 and 2025. The hotel chain’s decision to embark on this new journey was in response to what Marriott says is, “consumers’ growing desire around the world for premium, worry-free vacations.” Beyond 2025, Marriott International plans to expand its all-inclusive arsenal with a mix of new-build properties and improvements to existing resorts around the world.

Marriott Bonvoy members will be happy to learn that they will continue to have the option to earn and redeem points at each of Marriott’s new all-inclusive resorts.

“Our new all-inclusive resort platform is a natural progression for Marriott International,” said Tony Capuano, Marriott International’s Executive Vice President and Global Chief Development Officer. “It will provide the ownership community a game-changing value proposition for their luxury and premium resort projects around the world, while providing guests a new vacation option with brands they trust.”

The new properties will open throughout the Caribbean and Latin America with one resort in Punta Cana and four resorts in Riviera Nayarit.
