All-inclusive resorts are known for having everything you need within property lines. Often there is hardly any need for guests to stay outside of the resort.

However, Melia Hotels International is changing the way travelers experience the communities and destinations surrounding all-inclusive resorts.

Paradisus by Meliá, the luxury all-inclusive hotel brand of Meliá Hotels International, recently unveiled a new “Destination Inclusive” program designed specifically to connect guests with local culture in imaginative ways.

The program began on April 1st and covers almost every aspect of Paradisus resorts, including the resort’s design and amenities, the food and beverage, and even the entertainment. Beyond the confines of the resort, guests can now embark on unique excursions through Destination Inclusive “Experiences”.

Available to guests of the newly introduced Nikté and The Reserve suite categories with an upgrade (as part of the nightly rate). Carefully curated by local experts, Destination Inclusive experiences are designed to connect guests with the natural world and surroundings of each resort location.
