Marriott will open a mega resort in Riviera Maya with 1,049 rooms at the end of this year after its alliance with the Canadian Sunwing.

Royalton Splash Riviera Cancun is part of the Autograph Collection Hotels brand, further expanding Marriott’s portfolio of all-inclusive properties in eight locations across the Caribbean and Latin America.

Owned and operated by Blue Diamond Resorts, the resort will feature a large water park, theater, bowling alley, water rides and immersive culinary encounters at a dozen restaurants and nine bars.

Current Marriott all-inclusive resort locations include Antigua, Barbados, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Mexico and St. Lucia.

Marriott made the leap to the all-inclusive model in 2019 with the acquisition of seven hotels from Elegant Hotels in Barbados.

In 2021, the Autograph Collection signed a long-term agreement with Sunwing Travel Group’s hospitality division, Blue Diamond Resorts, to add 20 hotels to the portfolio, placing Marriott International among the top 10 global all-inclusive players, as announced. (Marriott: added list of 20 Sunwing Caribbean hotels).

All 20 Sunwing properties, in addition to carrying the Autograph Collection brand, are joining the Marriott Bonvoy program. However, the hotels will continue to be owned and operated by Blue Diamond Resorts, under the Marriott brand promise.
