Antonio Fungairino

Head of Development, Americas, Hyatt Inclusive Collection

Hyatt is pleased to share the appointment of Antonio Fungairino as head of Inclusive Collection development for the Latin America & Caribbean (LAC) region. Fungairino, who previously served as the vice president of development for Hyatt’s Inclusive Collection, reports to Camilo Bolaños, Hyatt’s senior vice president of development for the LAC region. In his new role, Fungairino leads the development strategy for the Inclusive Collection’s 10 distinctive resort brands, strengthening Hyatt’s brand presence throughout the region.

This appointment further bolsters Hyatt’s regional efforts after recently announcing the newly created LAC regional division. Fungairino’s leadership and dedicated focus will help reinforce Hyatt’s strong pipeline and growth strategy, which is experiencing extraordinary demand from the leisure segment. With a bachelor’s degree from the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom and a master’s degree in hospitality management from Cornell University, Fungairino’s career began nearly 30 years ago at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts where he grew his experience in hotel operations over 10 years. After this, he spent 13 years in asset management with Everest Holdings in Scottsdale, Arizona and Mullen Real Estate in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. These experiences allowed him to truly understand the needs of owners and strategically drive results from the assets. In 2014, Fungairino began a dual role of asset management and development at Apple Leisure Group where he played a pivotal role in growing the portfolio of resorts year after year, which eventually drove the largest portfolio of luxury all-inclusive properties in world.

Hyatt’s Inclusive Collection pipeline across the LAC region remains strong with continued thoughtful expansion in new and noteworthy destinations. Notable all-inclusive openings expected in 2024 include:

  • Family-friendly, all-inclusive resorts: Dreams Estrella del Mar Mazatlán Golf & Spa Resort, Dreams Grand Island, and Dreams Playa Esmeralda
  • Adults-only, all-inclusive resorts: Secrets Playa Esmeralda, Secrets St. Lucia Resort & Spa, Breathless Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa, and Hyatt Vivid Grand Island

Please join us in congratulating Antonio on his new role, and as always, thank you for your support
