This could be the season for the all-inclusive.
With ever-changing restrictions — and troubling news about variants — travelers aren't scrapping their trips entirely. They're just reconsidering what "vacation" means. This winter, it seems, the safe bet is a resort where everything happens under one roof.
At least, so says Hyatt CEO Mark Hoplamazian, whose company recently took over dozens of resort properties across the Caribbean, Europe, and Mexico.
"People have been through a tough 20 months," said Hoplamazian in a one-on-one interview with Travel + Leisure in November, before the omicron variant once again upended the travel plans of many. "The idea of being able to regroup, spend time with loved ones, family, friends — you're now seeing a lot of reunions going on as international travel is starting again."
