Sometimes when you’re budgeting for a trip, getting it all out of the way, right away, feels best. All inclusive hotels provide one of the easiest ways to do that. Now, Marriott Bonvoy has a variety of stunning properties where you can live the all inclusive dream.
With meals and drinks all accounted for, it’s just the little extras to consider, with no need to worry about where to eat, how to get there and all that jazz. In these trying times, that sounds kind of awesome.
Despite being the largest global hotel chain, the Marriott Bonvoy brand never really had a proper “all inclusive” collection, but that’s changing – and very fast, with new countries and options being added.
Marriott All Inclusive
All inclusive hotels were cool, then they weren’t. Corners were cut, standards dropped too low and just like that, the vibe was gone. But now, with refined standards of food and some exceptional properties, Marriott Bonvoy is dipping back into the all inclusive game, starting with Barbados.
Sure, there were a handful of hotels which joined the Marriott universe which offered some style of ‘all inclusive’ offering, but Marriott is poised to re-launch the concept with heightened brand standards.
Re-imagine the resort experience with All-Inclusive by Marriott, the newest and most rewarding name in immersive vacations offering an award-winning collection of hotels for every travel lifestyle.

Marriott acquired Elegant Hotels & Resorts, one of the most beloved hotel groups in Barbados, and those properties are being further integrated into Marriott Bonvoy. To kick things off, Marriott has a bunch of four and five star hotels in Barbados, with many Caribbean dsetinations on the way.
Marriott’s all inclusive hotels in Barbados include…
- Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels
- Tamarind by Elegant Hotels
- The House by Elegant Hotels
- Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels
- Turtle Beach by Elegant Hotels
- Waves Hotel & Spa by Elegant Hotels
According to a Marriott release sent to GSTP, the global hotel group says new ‘all inclusive’ hotels experiences are “coming soon to Antigua & Barbuda, Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Saint Lucia”. A full listing of Marriott’s hotels offering all-inclusive options can be found here.
In a time when international travel isn’t without its challenges, taking the guesswork and effort out of a vacation makes a lot of sense. Coupling that with increased demand for North American, Caribbean and Latin American destinations puts highly attractive options right where all the action is, which will put pressure on other major brands to follow.
The question is: how many Marriott Bonvoy Points will it cost to enjoy all inclusive, on an all points basis?
