What is the meaning / definition of All Inclusive Hotel in the hospitality industry?

All inclusive hotels incorporate more than solely the price of a room into the price per night, but also three meals per day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner), services and activities. Although every hotel is different and may or may not include other service like alcohol, airport transfers, rooms service and specific activities and services, it is a safer way for travellers to budget their expected expenses when travelling.

Therefore this type of hotel is seen as a budget-friendly option because guests pay a large price for things that could add up if they were to book their trip a la carte.

Before booking an all-inclusive hotel, guests should read the items covered. Travellers who book all-inclusive hotel do sometimes end-up paying for things they expected to be covered.
