This week the Latest Sale team reports from the hospitality, travel and leisure Business Directory and highlights Marriott capitalizing on leisure travel.
While there has been a significant decline in travel since the pandemic started, businesses and hotels are expecting one category to lead a rebound in the travel industry – leisure. Seeking to capitalize on this new trend, Marriott purchased 19 properties from Sunwing Travel Group. Marriott will add these 19 all-inclusive resorts to its Autograph Collection of hotels.
The new resorts span across Central America and the Caribbean: Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua, and Costa Rica. Marriott has announced plans to continue its expansion into the all-inclusive resorts categories. Prior to the deal with Sunwing Travel Group, the company already managed nine all-inclusive resorts and had plans to add five more.
