Excellence Group Luxury Hotels & Resorts Rebrands as The Excellence Collection

The renowned hospitality group embraces a new brand strategy, marking its next era as The Excellence Collection

With a mission to exceed guests’ highest expectations in every aspect possible, Excellence Group Luxury Hotels and Resorts has become the Caribbean’s most trusted name in all inclusive luxury travel. The family-owned and -operated group, which owns and manages five-star, award-winning resorts in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica, will continue to deliver stunning properties and unmatched service as it enters its next chapter with The Excellence Collection.

The Excellence Collection will encompass the group’s three high end brands: the adults-only Excellence Resorts with all inclusive properties in Cancun, the Riviera Maya, Punta Cana, and Montego Bay; Beloved Hotels for boutique adults-only all inclusive escapes; and Finest Resorts offering modern all inclusive luxury for all ages.

The Excellence Collection beach

With last year’s opening of Excellence Oyster Bay and plans for a Finest Punta Cana in 2020, the company has focused on new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of the market, and has created The Excellence Collection to do so. The Excellence Collection brings a new brand identity with modern, updated logos and dedicated hyperfocus on the unique offerings of each of group’s properties.

The Excellence Collection resorts

These new elements mark an important milestone for the hospitality group, which has been experiencing rapid growth in the last decade. With three key pillars of Bespoke Service, Extraordinary Moments, and Innovative Curation at the core of The Excellence Collection, the parent brand is a promise made to each and every Excellence Collection guest.

The Excellence Collection

“The Excellence Collection is an evolution of Excellence Group Luxury Hotels & Resorts. Our three pillars have been thoughtfully defined, with the end goal to deliver an authentic experience that lasts well beyond the guests’ stay. We do so through a personal and curated approach to luxury,” said The Excellence Collection’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mr. Domingo Aznar.

Everything You Want to Know About The New Excellence Collection

The renowned Excellence Group Luxury Hotels & Resorts is updating its brand to become The Excellence Collection

The service you’ve always loved, with a new and fresher look

What was once Excellence Group has now been renamed to reflect the sophisticated style that has characterized us for nearly two decades and will bring us into a new era: The Excellence Collection.

The Excellence Collection logo

Years of innovative, crafted, top-notch moments have led Excellence to strengthen the roots of this much-loved family business by opening even more properties in recent years. 

Keeping the values that are close to our heart and yours, the brand has extended its vision of luxury throughout several Caribbean destinations: Cancun, the Riviera Maya, Punta Cana, and Montego Bay.

As always, The Excellence Collection spearheads three high-end resort brands, each with its own identity:

  • Excellence Resorts, our adults-only luxury All Inclusive brand
  • Beloved Hotels, our adults-only boutique All Inclusive brand
  • Finest Resorts, our modern high end All Inclusive brand for all ages

With several new resorts opened in recent years and the new Finest Punta Cana opening in 2020, combined with the constant recognition from guests who return to our resorts time and time again… it felt right to write a new chapter in the Excellence story.


Thanks to all the help, feedback, input, and messages we received from our loyal long-term guests, our current guests, and potential future guests, the new logos of The Excellence Collection portray the subtle elegance that has grown within this company for years.

The new look for the Excellence Resorts brand is especially impactful:

Excellence Resorts logoEach of the resorts under the Excellence Resorts brand even has its own new flower symbol to set it apart from the rest, and we’d love to introduce you to them:

Excellence Resorts property logos

A fun fact about the Excellence Resorts logos is that the flower chosen for each property has been inspired by the local plants and flowers found in each destination. It’s also a lovely way to portray the lush and detailed gardens that characterize all of our resorts.

The new logo for the Finest Resorts brand stays much the same, except we’ve added a small golden sun to the upper-left corner to represent how much fun under the sun all of our guests can have during their vacation at Finest Playa Mujeres or the new Finest Punta Cana in 2020!

Finest Resorts logoAnd our Beloved Hotels logo has a new heart within a circle added to it, representing the romantic atmosphere found at this serene boutique hotel brand.Beloved Hotels logoThe Excellence Collection highlights the best of our hospitality industry, redefining All Inclusive experiences with Bespoke Service, Innovative Curation, and Extraordinary Moments.
