Marriott International has announced the addition of Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun to its growing all-inclusive portfolio.
Scheduled to open in late 2022, Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun is owned and operated by Blue Diamond Resorts and will join the All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy portfolio.
The 1,049-room resort will bring a new all-inclusive hotel and water park to one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations. The property offers unique entertainment options, such as a theater, bowling, water attractions, and culinary encounters at a dozen restaurants and nine on-site bars.
“We are delighted to continue working with Blue Diamond Resorts to add another exciting all-inclusive resort to the All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy portfolio,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Marriott’s Chief Development Officer.
“The Autograph Collection Hotels brand champions individuality, with each hotel being a product of passion, making this brand an exceptional partner for this important project and the other 20 Blue Diamond Resorts that have joined the collection,” continued De Kousemaeker.
Marriott entered the all-inclusive space in 2019 with the acquisition of Elegant Hotels’ seven properties in Barbados. In 2021, the company announced a long-term agreement with Sunwing Travel Group’s hotel division, Blue Diamond Resorts, to add 20 hotels to the portfolio.
The company currently operates all-inclusive resorts in key destinations including Antigua, Barbados, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Mexico and Saint Lucia.
“We are thrilled to have Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun join Marriott’s Autograph Collection brand,” said Jordi Pelfort, President of Sunwing Travel Group. “Today’s announcement reinforces Blue Diamond’s position as one of the fastest growing hotel chains in the Caribbean.
