Wyndham survey: Travelers ‘all-in’ for all-inclusive

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has unveiled results from a new consumer study, indicating strong interest in all-inclusive resorts from travelers.

The survey, commissioned by Wyndham and conducted by OnePoll, shows that 75% of travelers believe the best way to travel is to book an all-inclusive trip and 77% believe that an all-inclusive vacation is the least stressful way to travel.

With many Americans now working remotely at least part of the time, travel plans are also shifting with workers’ newfound flexibility. Based on the data, 65% of working travelers plan to take a working vacation in 2022, and among these respondents, all-inclusive resorts were the top desired destination. 62% of respondents said that the beach is their top anticipated destination this year, with three in five agreeing that Mexico is a top choice for their next vacation.

According to the study it was found that the top five things travelers look for when planning a vacation included:

All-inclusive packages—44%
Beach access—44%
High-quality restaurants—44%
Local culture—43%

Meals, drinks and activities are all provided in an all-inclusive resort experience, taking the stress out of vacation planning, so travelers can truly relax.

Last fall, Wyndham launched a strategic alliance with Playa Hotels & Resorts, and unveiled a new all-inclusive resort brand, Wyndham Alltra. The brand’s name, Alltra, is born from the brand promise of “All-Inclusive Travel for All,” keeping with Wyndham’s mission of delivering exceptional experiences to the everyday traveler.

The first two resorts in the Wyndham Alltra collection are the family-friendly 458-room Wyndham Alltra Cancun and the adults-only 287-room Wyndham Alltra Playa del Carmen, which both opened in Mexico in December 2021. The brand plans to develop additional upper-midscale, all-inclusive Wyndham Alltra resorts in the Caribbean and other popular resort destinations.

“With an increase in daily work and family stress in the past two years, we’re seeing demand for simple, stress-free vacations,” said Scott LePage, president, Americas, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Our Wyndham Alltra resorts are perfectly suited to deliver a top-notch experience for travelers looking for a seamless beach getaway.”
