Alagoas has definitely entered the investment route of several national and international hotel groups. The state’s natural vocation for tourism, with little explored scenarios, will guarantee that some municipalities and destinations will gain new developments. Data from Setur-AL (Secretariat of State for Tourism of Alagoas) indicate that 16 new hotels should enter into operation by 2026.

Also according to the Secretariat, the new developments should guarantee 4,500 new beds, providing greater supply in various parts of the state, reveals the Alagoas Web portal. The expansion of the hotel chain shows that some already consolidated chains will expand their operations. Maceió will be the city with the largest number of hotels under construction.

The Tropicalis chain, which already has three properties in the capital, announced the construction of three more hotels. The largest of them will be Gran Tropicalis, which will have 329 rooms and capacity for 800 beds. The project is expected to be delivered later this year. In 2025, the company expects to deliver another unit, with 319 rooms and 780 beds and, in 2026, there are plans for another hotel, with 113 accommodations and 250 beds. The total investments were not disclosed, but the expectation is that 290 direct jobs will be created in the three units.

Other investments

The Brisa chain, which has six units in Alagoas, also announced the construction of another hotel in the capital, but there is still no information about the capacity and delivery of the project. Accor, under the Novotel brand, will also expand its operations in Maceió, which will build a unit with capacity for 279 apartments, expected to start operations in 2025.

The Placic group also stated that it will build a project in the city, Mandi. Known for paradisiacal and ecological destinations, the north coast of Alagoas has entered the route of hotel expansion. Barra de Santo Antônio, in the metropolitan region of Maceió, should receive investment from the Ritz group with two units, both located on Carro Quebrado beach.

The Ritz Carro Quebrado is expected to have 768 rooms and 1,500 beds. With the same name, but with a different proposal and style, the chain will also launch the Ritz Carro Quebrado Pousada, with 184 rooms and 368 beds. The Salinas chain, which already has two resorts all inclusive in the state, one in Maragogi and one in Maceió, it will build another unit, in the municipality of São Miguel dos Milagres.

Maragogi will receive an Ibis unit, the Styles Resort Maragogi. Betting on the high standard of accommodation, GAV Resorts will launch Oikos Maragogi GAV Resorts in 2025. According to the company, the development will be located on the seafront and will have futuristic architecture, being divided into two blocks, with 362 apartments.

South Coast and Sertão

Still little explored, the southern coast of Alagoas has also become an investment target. Scheduled to come into operation in March 2025, the Quality Resort Dunas de Marapé will be part of the Dunas de Marapé Ecological Complex. The unit will have 230 beds and 100 rooms, in Jequiá da Praia. According to Setur-AL, R$17 million is being invested in the construction of the hotel, which will generate 100 direct jobs.

Barra de São Miguel will also receive investments from the Brisa chain. It will be a development with a capacity for 140 rooms and 280 beds. The municipality of Coruripe, located 86 kilometers (km) from Maceió, will gain two new hotels from the Portuguese Vila Galé chain. Vila Galé Coruripe Alagoas is expected to come into operation in 2026 and will be one of the largest investments in the sector, around R$200 million. Setur-AL’s forecast is that the unit will have 144 rooms and generate 500 direct jobs. The group’s proposal is to offer guests maximum luxury and comfort.

Within the project, the chain also intends to build an apart-hotel, with 252 units, focusing on the family accommodation experience. The entire hotel complex should house five restaurants, a water park, among other items. The São Francisco River and the Cangaço route are some of the attractions that lead tourists to explore Alagoas and leave the sandy route that dominates the coastal route. In Piranhas, 282 km from the capital, the Manoel Foguete group intends to put into operation this year a hotel with a capacity for 140 rooms and 280 beds. The project is expected to generate 500 direct jobs once completed.

Gabriel Cedrim, president of ABIH-AL (Brazilian Association of the Hotel Industry of Alagoas), states that the new projects under construction in the state will significantly strengthen the sector. He also spoke about the importance of work that reinforces the airline network, as well as strategic planning that guarantees sustainable development.

“These investments, both public and private, promote tourism, create jobs and boost the local economy. Offering more flights, opening up the international market, is also necessary to maintain the flow of tourists. Public authorities must recognize tourism as a vital investment, promoting policies that encourage its growth and offer adequate support for its full development in the coming seasons,” he says.
