Marriott Signs Agreement for New Waterfront All-Inclusive Resort in Cancun
Cancun will soon have new waterfront all-inclusive resort. Marriott announced this week the signing of Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun to join its growing all-inclusive portfolio. Expected to open in late 2022, Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun is owned and managed by Blue Diamond Resorts and will join the All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, which includes close to 30 getaways in 8 locations across the Caribbean and Latin America. The property is located 35 minutes from Cancun International Airport.
Set to debut in late 2022, the 1,049-room Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun will bring an exciting new all-inclusive resort and waterpark to one of the world’s most vibrant vacation destinations. The park will feature 14 slides, two lazy rivers, and splash pads.
Additionally, the resort will have a theater, bowling alley, unique water attractions, and immersive culinary encounters at a dozen on-property restaurants and nine bars all amidst stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. Also on-site will be Royalton Fit, the hotel’s wellness center with fitness classes, as well as Royalton Spa, a luxe facility with hydrotherapy (for an additional cost).
“We are thrilled to continue working with Blue Diamond Resorts & Hotels to add another exciting all-inclusive resort to the All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy portfolio,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Chief Development Officer, Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott International. “The Autograph Collection Hotels brand champions individuality with each hotel being a product of passion, making this brand an exceptional fit for this significant project and the other 20 Blue Diamond Resorts that have joined the collection.”
All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy brings together several of Marriott International’s iconic brands. Marriott International entered the all-inclusive space in 2019 with the acquisition of Elegant Hotels’ seven hotels 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 into the portfolio, moving Marriott International into the top 10 of global all-inclusive players. Current all-inclusive resort locations include Antigua, Barbados, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Mexico, and St Lucia.
Marriott International has a portfolio of more than 8,000 properties under 30 leading brands spanning 139 countries and territories.
