DSC_0373Marriott International announced it would enter the all-inclusive resort business, a move that includes its exclusive Ritz-Carlton unit.

The hotelier announced plans for two new resorts that will cost over $800 million combined to build. One resort will be a 650-key property in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, the other a multi-branded property on Mexico’s Riviera Navarit that will include a Ritz-Carlton as part of the project.

The move comes as Marriott seeks to compete with established all-inclusive brands such as Club Med and Sandals Resorts for travelers who want an all-inclusive experience.

We are opening up a new way for travelers to explore our incredible brands –from Westin to W – through a new, all-inclusive lens,” said Tina Edmundson, Marriot’s global brand director.

The Punta Cana resort will feature an Autograph Collection hotel and will open in 2022. The mixed-brand Riviera Nayarit resort will include a 240-room Ritz-Carlton resort opening in 2023, a 400-room Westin resort also opening in 2023, a 300-room Autograph Collection resort, opening in 2025, and a 500-room Marriott Hotels resort, also opening in 2025.
