This news will brighten the day of any Marriott Bonvoy member who’s got a stash of points to use: Through an agreement with Sunwing Travel Group’s hotel division, Blue Diamond Resorts, Marriott plans to add 19 all-inclusive resorts to its portfolio.

That more than doubles the number of all-inclusive resorts at which you can spend Marriott points. By 2025, there will be 33 all-inclusive properties to consider and the majority of the newcomers will be rebranded into Marriott’s Autography Collection.

Blue Diamond Resorts has a presence in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. TPGers are especially looking forward to the new options in Antigua, St. Lucia and Mexico.
