The Cvent Event Blog has previously profiled a number of all-inclusive resorts and discussed the value that all-inclusives can deliver for corporate groups. Due to new openings and, in some cases, re-branded properties, corporate groups in search of all-inclusive resorts have more options this year.
Palace Resorts has acquired and transformed the former Sunset Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios with a $50-million renovation. Guest rooms have been completely renovated, the 30,000 square feet of meeting rooms have been updated and the common areas have been given a bold new look. The property still has the signature pools with waterfalls that create a lush tropical oasis and a new Lighthouse waterslide has been added.The property offers a full meal package with a la carte and buffer options. Afternoon Tea is included daily.
The 843 room Royalton Riviera Cancun offers corporate groups a luxury All-In Luxury resort with 3 distinct ambiences: family Resort, and 2 adults-only sections, Diamond Club and Hideaway.
