Congratulations are in order for Blue Diamond Resorts, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year after a decade of exponential growth in the Caribbean.
Founded in 2010, the Canadian owned-and-operated hotel group has grown exponentially over the past decade, since opening its first property in 2011 to now managing 45 resorts in ten countries.
“Blue Diamond Resorts began as a small team with a big dream – to provide travelers with unparalleled vacations in paradisiac destinations,” shared Jordi Pelfort, President of Hotels and Resorts, Sunwing Travel Group, “Combining our passion for hospitality with our determination, I am proud and humbled by all that we have achieved in our first decade of business. While overcoming the unprecedented challenges of 2020 has tested our strength, I am confident that we will have even more successes to celebrate over the next 10 years.”
Responsible for the impressive portfolio of TravelSmart hotels in the most sought-after Caribbean locales, Blue Diamond Resorts continues to diversify by developing new brands and breaking ground in new destinations. Most recently, the hotel chain expanded Royalton Luxury Resorts by rebranding three of the existing properties available to TravelSmart members, reopening as Royalton CHIC Punta Cana, Royalton CHIC Suites Cancun, and Royalton Splash Punta Cana and integrating its boutique hotel chain Mystique by Royalton under the brand umbrella.
Despite the challenges that COVID-19 presented, Blue Diamond Resorts has remained steadfast in achieving its targets. Early in 2020, the hotel chain opened the stunning Royalton Grenada Resort & Spa as a result of the joint venture with Rex Hotels involving seven properties and 1,500 rooms in five islands in the Eastern Caribbean. Located on two white-sand beaches in Tamarind Bay, Royalton Grenada is the perfect vacation destination for discerning travelers in search of a luxurious beach getaway. Still to come in 2020, Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Cancun and Planet Hollywood Adult Scene Cancun will be making their grand debut on the stunning shores of Costa Mujeres in late 2020.
