Marriott Hotels Joins All-Inclusive Portfolio, First Opening in Early 2024

All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy welcomed Marriott Hotels to its portfolio. Beginning in early 2024 with Marriott Cancun, An All-Inclusive Resort, guests can connect with the local culture through experiences, entertainment, and hospitality.

With nearly 600 hotels and resorts, Marriott Hotels has affected modern business and leisure travelers, which represents an opportunity to invite travelers of Marriott Bonvoy’s flagship hotel brand for all-inclusive trips. All-inclusive resorts are becoming increasingly popular, even more so with families. While convenience and minimal planning play a part in why, it is the need for connections and activities without hesitation that guides travelers’ decisions.

Programming and activities will change throughout the year, but experiences will include:

  • The Greatroom is a concept for Marriott Hotels, with a twist for All-Inclusive properties. As the hub of the resort experience, it’s a place where guests can come together to socialize between activities. With a design and flow from indoor to outdoor, it’s also an opportunity to connect with the locale. Guests can transition into vacation mode with an arrival soda inspired by crafted sodas and a nod to the brand.
  • Novice-to-expert artist workshops will offer a program of activities. Guests can learn about the destination from local craftspeople, with hands-on classes and experiences.
  • Amenities and entertainment will cover a range and be designed with guest experience in mind including pools and water slides, pop-up cinema moments, nightly entertainment, and beachside picnics.
  • A seat at the table for every generation means well-rounded restaurant offerings available at every resort. Guests will be able to indulge in familiar cuisine.

“Understanding the importance of family connections, Marriott Hotels All-Inclusive concept is designed to meet and exceed the evolving needs of multigenerational travelers,” said Drew Iddings, vice president, premium classic brands, Marriott Hotels. “In its simplest form, all-inclusive stays are about wanting to relax, feel taken care of, and create memories together—all in one place…We are ready to help families find fun and fulfillment during their travels, starting in Cancun and through to Jamaica and Tunisia, some of the world’s most captivating destinations.”

The debut property—Marriott Cancun, An All-Inclusive Resort—will open in early 2024. The 450-room resort will include nine restaurants; daily pop-up experiences; water features, such as a lazy river and water slides; and entertainment to support connection and celebrate local culture. Additional Marriott Hotels All-Inclusive Resorts are set to debut throughout 2024 and 2025 including Marriott Puerto Vallarta, An All-Inclusive Resort, and Marriott Djerba, An All-Inclusive Resort—Tunisia.
