Marriott International is further expanding its all-inclusive footprint in the Caribbean, announcing plans for two new seafront resorts in Jamaica and Curacao.

In Jamaica, the Marriott Hotel Al Amaterra is expected to be completed early next year. The 800-room hotel will be located within the new Amaterra Resort, currently under development in Trelawney on the north coast.

In Curacao, Marriott will open a 283-room Autograph Collection resort in the historical Pietermaai district of Willemstad. That resort is scheduled to open by 2024.

The signings come as Marriott makes inroads into the all-inclusive space. In August, the company unveiled plans to open four new all-inclusives under four brands -- Ritz-Carlton, Autograph Collection, Westin and Marriott -- in Mexico's Riviera Nayarit region between 2022 and 2025 as well as a new Autograph Collection all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic by 2022.

In October, Marriott made an offer to acquire Elegant Hotels, which owns and operates seven Barbados hotels, the majority of which are all-inclusive. Marriott said it plans to renovate the Elegant properties and operate all of them as all-inclusives under a Marriott portfolio brand.
