Hyatt Hotels is expanding its focus on all-inclusive, particularly in the Caribbean, with a new portfolio called the “Inclusive Collection.”
The new portfolio includes nine different “luxury” all-inclusive brands, the vast majority of which come from the company’s purchase of Apple Leisure Group last year.
The “Inclusive Collection” includes Hyatt Hyatt Ziva resorts, Hyatt Zilara resorts, Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Vivid Hotels & Resorts (coming soon), Alua Hotels & Resorts and Sunscape Resorts & Spas.
The move follows Marriott’s high-profile entry into all-inclusive, a move that instantly cemented Marriott a leader in the broader Caribbean.
For Hyatt, the move is particularly focused on loyalty; indeed, World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem points at 50 Inclusive Collection resorts in destinations like the Caribbean and Mexico.
“Inclusive Collection resorts enable guests to experience what it truly means to stay at an all-inclusive with one-of-a kind signature programs like Endless Privileges, Unlimited-Luxury, and Unlimited-Fun with benefits at select resorts, such as no check-in or check-out times, 24-hour room service, top-shelf cocktails, gourmet a la carte dining without reservations required and endless activities throughout the day and night,” said Erica Doyne, senior vice president of marketing & communications, AMResorts. “From spa treatments and locally inspired cuisine to rich cultural experiences that immerse travelers in the traditions of their destination, the Inclusive Collection brings one of the world’s largest portfolios of luxury all-inclusive resorts to travelers so they can connect with those that matter most and turn moments into lifetime memories.”
Hyatt now has four distinct hotel collections: the Timeless Collection; the Unbound Collection; the Independent Collection and the Inclusive Collection.
It’s all a nod to the growing import of all-inclusive in the Caribbean and the broader world of travel.
