Marriott International, Inc. today announced it has signed an agreement with PGA Hotel Management Group to introduce the first Westin all-inclusive resort to South America. Expected to welcome its first guests in September 2021, the Westin Porto de Galinhas will serve as the first Westin Hotels & Resorts-branded property in Brazil after undergoing an extensive renovation.
Set on 215,000 square feet of oceanfront property, the Westin Porto de Galinhas is located on one of the most famous beaches in Northeast Brazil and only minutes from Porto de Galinhas’ charming tourist center. The resort is slated to feature 128 rooms and 36 spacious suites, some of which will include private decks and jacuzzis. The property is set to include five pools treated with state-of-the-art UV technology with direct access to the beach and an exclusive luxury spa. Plans also call for adult and children’s programming seven days a week and quality food and beverage offerings.
Given growing demand for premium and luxury all-inclusive stays, Marriott International launched its all-inclusive platform in 2019 leveraging eight of its 30 global iconic brands. The Westin brand has been hospitality’s global leader in wellness for more than a decade and is poised to introduce a new level of wellness to travelers in the destination. The all-inclusive brand extension of the iconic Westin brand will offer a nature-inspired design – remaining true to its brand promise of bringing guests closer to outdoor living.
Currently, Marriott International operates 13 hotels in Brazil under the JW Marriott, Marriott Hotels, Sheraton, Renaissance, Autograph Collection, Four Points by Sheraton, Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn and Marriott Executive Apartments brands.
