American multinational diversified hospitality company Marriott International has signed management contracts with hotel developers for five new all-inclusive resorts.
With owner investment of more than $800m, the planned resorts in the Caribbean and Latin America would offer more than 2,000 rooms in total. They are expected to open between 2022 and 2025.
The first resort will be a 650-room Autograph Collection resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Mexico City-based Artha Capital plans to create NIA, a new all-inclusive development in Riviera Nayarit that will feature four of Marriott’s brands. They include a 240-room The Ritz-Carlton resort, 400-room Westin Hotels resort, a 300-room Autograph Collection resort and 500-room Marriott Hotels resort.
Artha Capital Hospitality Platform managing director Gerardo Férnandez said: “By bringing together a mix of premium and luxury brands on our beautiful, oceanfront site, we have the opportunity to redefine what ‘all-inclusive vacationing’ truly means. We have high confidence in Marriott International, the power of its brands and loyalty programme, and are confident that this project will be a success.”
The proposed resorts will feature various amenities, food options and events catered for different ages, which are customised for each brand.
According to the company, the Marriott Hotels brand all-inclusive resorts will primarily serve families, whereas the W Hotels brand will be for adults.
Marriott International executive vice-president and global chief development officer Tony Capuano said: “Our new all-inclusive resort platform is a natural progression for Marriott International. It will provide the ownership community with a game-changing value proposition for their luxury and premium resort projects around the world while providing guests with a new vacation option with brands they trust.”
