CaribPR Wire, TORONTO, March 30, 2021: Sunwing Travel Group is pleased to announce that Mystique Holbox by Royalton will be joining Marriott International’s portfolio and is expected to align with the Tribute Portfolio brand later this year. The news follows last month’s monumental announcement that Sunwing Travel Group’s resort division, Blue Diamond Resorts, had entered into a long-term agreement with Marriott International.
The move will bring one of Mexico’s most stylish destinations to the Tribute Portfolio, Marriott International’s growing global family of independent hotels highly regarded for their unique, captivating design and vibrant social experiences.
“We are excited to be furthering our agreement with Marriott International by introducing Mystique Holbox by Royalton to the vibrant Tribute Portfolio,” said Jordi Pelfort, President, Hotels & Resorts of Sunwing Travel Group. “Mystique Holbox’s unique, nature-inspired design, secluded location and personalized service offers an unparalleled vacation experience that we are thrilled to share with new and existing customers.”
Mystique Holbox by Royalton will be joining 19 other Blue Diamond Resorts properties in aligning with Marriott International. Those 19 resorts will become part of Autograph Collection, Marriott’s collection of hotels hand-selected for their inherent craft and distinct perspectives on design and hospitality, significantly expanding Marriott’s all inclusive portfolio. As part of the agreement, Sunwing Travel Group will benefit from worldwide distribution in addition to the award winning Marriott Bonvoy travel program with 147 million members worldwide.
“We are thrilled to add Mystique Holbox by Royalton, the twentieth Blue Diamond Resorts property, to the Marriott portfolio,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Chief Development Officer of Marriott International, Caribbean and Latin America. “This exquisite boutique beachfront resort, which is located on the exotic Island of Holbox, is a perfect fit for our Tribute Portfolio brand.”
Located in the Yum Balam Nature Reserve, Mystique Holbox by Royalton is a contemporary beach resort that perfectly blends the island’s natural landscapes with traditional Mexican design. The property is home to 38 sprawling suites featuring lavish amenities and two on-site restaurants serving dishes influenced by local cuisine in addition to interactive dining experiences. Guests can explore the car-free island’s natural beauty on a biking tour, kiteboard on the calm waters or swim with whale sharks.
To help vacationers book with peace of mind, Mystique Holbox by Royalton has implemented their Safety-Assured Vacations protocols throughout the entire vacation experience. The program includes on-site COVID-19 viral antigen testing and free All-In Medical Assistance to cover the costs of any accidents or illness (including COVID-19-related medical needs).
