Marriott International plans to add to its portfolio 19 all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Mexico of Blue Diamond Resorts, Sunwing Travel Group’s hotel division.
Marriott International announced an expansion of its all-inclusive portfolio through a long-term agreement with Sunwing Travel Group’s hotel division, Blue Diamond Resorts, which has an extensive portfolio of resort properties throughout the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico. The agreement will add 19 franchised resorts totalling nearly 7,000 rooms across six destinations and more than doubling the company’s presence in the all-inclusive segment to 33 properties by 2025. Most of the properties are expected to be converted into Marriott’s Autograph Collection by mid-2021.
We are thrilled to work with Sunwing Travel Group and expand into two new leisure destinations – St. Lucia and Antigua. Blue Diamond’s expertise in the all-inclusive segment and high-quality resorts will help ensure that these properties serve as excellent additions to the Marriott portfolio. Today’s signing is a testament to Marriott International’s scale and loyalty platform, and we look forward to providing travelers seeking an all-inclusive experience with more choices in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Tony Capuano, Group President, Global Development, Design and Operations Services, Marriott International
Marriott International launched its multi-brand all-inclusive portfolio platform in August 2019 and has 9 open hotels across Costa Rica, Barbados and Mexico with an additional 5 hotels in the pipeline in Mexico, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Brazil.
