Marriott International Inc. announced Aug. 6 that it will be launching an all-inclusive resort platform, signing management contracts with hotel developers who plan to build five new all-inclusive resorts. The developers have invested more than $800 million.

The company will be expanding its all-inclusive portfolio in multiple destinations worldwide with a mix of new-build properties and conversions of existing resorts, including properties currently in the Marriott International portfolio. 

The five all-inclusive properties will be built in the Caribbean and Latin America. The planned resorts’ total number of rooms are expected to offer more than 2,000 rooms. The resorts include a 650-room Autograph Collection resort at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, a 240-room The Ritz-Carlton resort, and a 500-room Marriott Hotels resort in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. All resorts are expected to open between 2022 and 2025. 

This all-inclusive platform means that each of the five resorts will be offering a variety of amenities, including fitness and spa facilities, reservation-free dining at gourmet restaurants, adult-only pools with swim-up bars, 24-hour room service, on-premises nightclubs and unlimited premium beverage programs.

The expansion plans are all in response to consumers’ growing demand for premium all-inclusive stays.
