Best All Inclusive Resorts Around the World

Best all inclusive resorts

A private island in Tahiti, a game reserve in Kenya, and an elegant country estate in the mountains of Vermont have in common? They are all home to some of the best all-inclusive resorts.

The majority of resorts include accommodation, meals, beverages, and activities. Many are high-end and low-impact eco-resorts, with sustainability and conservation at their core.

Whether these resorts lie in the Caribbean or Kenya, they all offer personal service, pampering touches, and all-inclusive rates.

Ozen Life Maadhoo, Maldives

Ozen Life Maadhoo sits on one of these picture-perfect islands surrounded by a clear sea, and filled with lush vegetation on land.

This all-inclusive 5-star resort caters to couples and families. Book one of the mesmerizing overwater villas if this is a romantic getaway. These come with private pools and direct access to the sea from a ladder on your porch. Families will like the two-bedroom Earth Family Pool Suites.

The resort is just a 45-minute speedboat ride from the international airport on Male. The INDULGENCE Plan here also includes more than just meals and beverages. It also offers excursions like snorkeling and sunset fishing trips.

Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand

If your idea of paradise is an Asian adventure, Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle is an excellent choice.

Handcrafted furniture, clawfoot tubs, and sumptuous netted beds are typical features, and the outdoor showers and rustic textures, such as bamboo and local hardwoods, complement the stunning natural surroundings.

Dining is also an adventure. Pluck fresh produce from trees on the property on a foraging walk and let the chef conjure a mouthwatering meal, or take a Thai cooking class.

You can soak up some culture, too. Hillside bicycle tours travel through rice paddies and pineapple plantations, and you can also take a day trip to sacred temples or to explore neighboring Burma, among other adventures.

Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia

St. Lucia is known for its beautiful scenery, and Jade Mountain Resort capitalizes on it with spectacular views of the ocean and St. Lucia’s volcanic peaks, the Pitons.

Clinging to a cliffside, the resort has a series of open-sided rooms and common areas, so you always feel like a part of your surroundings. Despite their sweeping views, the suites offer total privacy, making this a favorite hideaway for honeymooners.

The cuisine at the Jade Mountain Club captures fresh island flavors with plenty of produce from the resort’s organic farm, and you can also dine at Anse Mamin or Anse Chastanet, the 600-acre sister resort on a silver-sand beach below.

Free time can be as active or relaxed as you like. Swimming, sailing, kayaking, and diving, are all popular things to do along the shores of Anse Chastanet beach, a steep walk from the resort or a shuttle ride away.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Fiji

Likuliku lays claim to the only over-the-water bungalows in Fiji, which might be reason enough to stay here, but this resort offers much more. Likulike is also known for its warm and friendly hospitality, authentic Fijian vibe, and romantic ambiance.

Guests also like the beachfront bures, with their cheaper price point, plunge pools, large daybeds, and private outdoor showers. These bures also offer direct access to the ocean, which is sometimes not available from the over-the-water bures when the tide is low.

The food is fabulous here and spotlights fresh seafood, as well as luscious tropical fruits and produce from the island’s organic hydroponic farm. Daily canapes delivered to your room give you a hint of the delectable dinner dishes that await.

In your spare time, you can enjoy a Couples Indulgence package at the spa, trim and tone at the gym, learn how to weave palm fronds, or sign up for village visits and island-hopping cruises.

North Island, Seychelles

“Barefoot luxury” is the island’s slogan, and conservation is key. The owner’s mission is to restore the island back to its natural state, and guests are welcome to participate in the conservation programs and learn about the unique ecology of this far-flung isle.

The sumptuous Villa North Island at the far end of the beach is the ultimate honeymoon hideaway.

Cuisine captures fresh creole flavors using the island’s latest harvest, and butler service allows you to eat anywhere. A full range of water sports, guided walks, and excursions to other islands top the activity list, as well as yoga and treatments like the “barefoot ritual” at the spa.

Lizard Island Resort, Australia

Accessible only by a private air charter flight from Cairns, Lizard Island Resort is located inside a national park right on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. If you are scuba certified, this is an excellent diving destination with the famed Cod Hole in the area.

Even if you don’t dive, there are numerous opportunities for snorkeling right from the white-sand beaches around the resort.

Nihi Sumba Island, Indonesia

The surfing retreat of Nihi Sumba Island presides over a wild and pristine palm-fringed slice of coast on the remote island of Sumba in Indonesia, about a one-hour flight from Bali.

The resort nestles within a nature reserve, and more than 2.5 kilometers of beach beckons beneath the cliffs below, with surfing, fishing, and snorkeling.

The 33 air-conditioned villas capture the essence of this tropical hideaway, with soaring ceilings that peek out among the palms and sweeping ocean views.

If you can tear yourself away from the villa and beach, with its fantastic surfing, diving, and fishing, you can go horseback riding on the beach, sign up for visits to nearby villages, explore hidden waterfalls, mountain bike, take a Land Rover safari, tour a chocolate factory, or relax at the beach club and pool.

Moon Palace Jamaica, Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Moon Palace Jamaica caters to guests of all ages with a playroom for kids and nightlife for adults, in addition to all the fun of a beachy resort with all-inclusive perks.

Top-shelf drinks, nonmotorized water sports, 24-hour room service, and dining and snacks are available at several venues, including waterfront restaurants.

Cottar's 1920s Safari Camp, Kenya

Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp oozes Out of Africa elegance. The camp borders the wildlife-rich Serengeti National Park and Maasai Mara National Reserve, two of the best game reserves in Africa, but because it sits on private land, you can skip the crowds of these famous parks.

The tents are a world away from those on your typical family camping trip, and the staff make you feel like royalty. The expert Maasai guides and trackers are one of the best in the business, delivering you to classic African “big-five” wildlife action starring lions, leopards, rhinos, buffalo, and elephants.

Family tented suites come with two bathrooms, and living rooms with fireplaces. You can also reserve a honeymoon suite or the Cottar’s Bush Villa, which sleeps 10 and has its own 25-meter pool.

The chef crafts culinary creations from fresh food grown right in the camp. Meals are usually served communal style in the huge dining tent or at breathtaking wilderness locations.
