Hyatt’s expanding its all-inclusive portfolio once again. This time, the brand has collaborated with Be Live Hotels to open 2 new Sunscape Resorts & Spas locations in the Dominican Republic, adding a total of 2,000 rooms.

Plus, Hyatt acquired Apple Leisure Group not too long ago, debuting over 100 all-inclusive properties — many of which are in the Caribbean.

Here are the exciting details of these newest Sunscape Resorts & Spas set to open later this year.

Hyatt To Open 2 New Sunscape Resorts & Spas

Hyatt currently has 9 all-inclusive brands with properties worldwide:

  • Alua Hotels & Resorts
  • Breathless Resorts & Spas
  • Dreams Resorts & Spas
  • Hyatt Vivid Hotels & Resorts (coming soon)
  • Hyatt Zilara
  • Hyatt Ziva
  • Secrets Resorts & Spas
  • Sunscape Resorts & Spas
  • Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts

One of these brands, Sunscape Resorts & Spas, will be expanding with 2 new locations in the Dominican Republic. These 2 properties are currently under the Be Live Hotels brand owned by Globalia, a Spanish hospitality group. After renovations, these 2 resorts will reopen as Sunscape Resorts & Spas later in 2023.

According to Javier Coll, group president, global business development & innovation, Inclusive Collection, Hyatt, this move is specifically designed to bring more family-friendly options to the Hyatt portfolio.

“This planned expansion of the Sunscape Resorts & Spas brand in the Caribbean marks an opportunity to broaden all-inclusive family-friendly offerings in a desirable market for global travelers,” said Coll.

Bottom Line: Hyatt is adding 2 new all-inclusive hotels in the Dominican Republic to its portfolio. These properties, which were formally under the Be Live Hotel brand, will be renovated before reopening later in 2023 as Sunscape Resorts & Spas locations.

Sunscape Resorts & Spas is 1 of Hyatt’s family-friendly all-inclusive brands. There are currently 6 locations in the Dominican Republic, Curaçao, and Mexico.
