What does a secluded island off the coast of Tahiti, a Kenyan game reserve, and a Vermont mountain home all have in common? There are several five-star all-inclusive resorts in each of them.
All-inclusive resorts often include lodging, food, drinks, and entertainment. Some of them are luxury eco-resorts that focus on minimizing their environmental effect. Some pamper visitors in eco-chic nature resorts in Indonesia, while others provide over-the-water bungalows on one of Fiji’s greatest islands. While a few of these resorts are among the most costly in the world, others provide incredible value by including almost everything (including activities) in the price.
You can leave your problems (and your money) at home at one of these resorts, which can be found everywhere from the Caribbean to Kenya.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, The Maldives
The Muraka Suite on Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is the pinnacle of luxury in all-inclusive resort accommodations. A honeymoon at such a one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast would highlight anyone’s trip worldwide. The resort has recently reopened after an extensive, multimillion-dollar restoration completed in February 2022.
The main bedroom is located 16 feet below the surface of the Indian Ocean and has a 180-degree acrylic dome ceiling, making you seem like you’re sleeping in your aquarium. Relax on your bed and watch sharks, rays, and other exotic creatures as they swim past.
Nihi Sumba, Indonesia
Nihi Sumba, formerly a haven for surfers, is now widely regarded as one of the world’s finest eco-friendly beach resorts. It is located on the Indonesian island of Sumba, roughly an hour’s flight from the popular tourist destination of Bali. It looks out throughout the wild and pure shoreline thanks to the palm trees’ presence.
The resort’s ethos, “The Edge of Wildness,” pairs well with its remote setting. More than 2.5 kilometers of white sand beach stretch under the cliffs below the resort, inviting guests to enjoy excellent surfing, fishing, and snorkeling. There are no televisions here, just relaxing sea breezes, exciting island activities, kind hosts, and breathtaking vistas.
The Brando, Tahiti
The Brando caters to those who yearn for a Tahitian tropical paradise yet value minimalism and respect for the environment. This carbon-neutral resort is the pinnacle of low-key luxury, with its idyllic setting on a private island around a three-mile lagoon.
The resort, founded by Marlon Brando, is entirely self-sufficient; it runs on solar energy, seawater air conditioning systems, and other green technology to protect the island’s natural beauty and rich wildlife.
It’s no surprise that this place is perfect for eco-tourists. Glistening coral reefs surround the lagoon, birds swarm to the shoreline, whales pass by on their yearly migrations, and sea turtles nest on the pristine white sands.
The thatched houses are discretely hidden by groves of pandanus and palms a short distance from the beach. You may easily include contemporary pieces in a home constructed from recycled and native resources like thatch, stone, and wood.
Ozen Life Maadhoo, Maldives
The islands that make up the Maldives are spread out across hundreds of square miles of lagoons in the Indian Ocean, close south of India. Ozen Life Maadhoo is located on one of these picture-perfect islands characterized by its lush flora and pure blue water.
This luxurious resort may have a vacation for two or the whole family. If you’re looking for a romantic holiday, consider staying in one of the stunning overwater villas. These have pools and a stairway leading right into the water. Two-bedroom Earth Family Pool Suites are ideal for families. There is a butler available at both locations.
The resort is a quick 45-minute speedboat journey from Male international airport. More than just food and drink is included in the INDULGENCE Plan at this place. They also provide tours like sunset fishing and snorkeling.
Jumby Bay Island – an Oetker Collection Hotel, Antigua
Jumby Bay, located on a private island off the coast of Antigua, represents tropical sophistication. Jumby Bay is one of the best 5-star all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, with all the amenities one would expect from a resort of this caliber, yet in a tranquil corner of paradise. Even though the island as a whole does not permit motor vehicles, cyclists are welcome to cruise about and take in the laid-back atmosphere.
The kind and attentive employees at Jumby Bay have earned the resort a sterling reputation. The fine-dining restaurant serves world-class cuisine with a tropical twist, and guests may enjoy their meals poolside or on the beach.
However isolated the location may seem, communication with the outside world is not compromised. All forty air-conditioned luxury rooms and villas include high-tech amenities, including flat-screen TVs, Bose stereos, Nespresso machines, and Wi-Fi. The four-poster beds of luxurious Italian linens, the wraparound terraces, and the private outdoor gardens with showers are just a few of the classic romantic touches that guests appreciate.
Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, Thailand
Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle is a wonderful option if a wild Asian experience is your notion of heaven. The first all-inclusive Four Seasons resort, this camp on the border of Burma and Laos is a popular destination for travelers searching for exotic locales and exciting activities.
Tents are only sometimes rustic and lack the potential for luxury that you may assume. These grand safari-style tents, perched on the slope of a hill surrounded by thick forest, are reminiscent of Thailand’s royal palaces from the 19th century. The outdoor showers and rustic textures, including bamboo and local hardwoods, match the beautiful natural surroundings, as do the handcrafted furnishings, clawfoot tubs, and comfortable standard netting mattresses.
Even the act of eating may be exciting. Take a Thai cooking lesson or take a foraging walk to collect your ingredients to have the chef create a delicious dinner for you.
