All-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, Hawaii and the South Pacific – especially those that don’t allow children – provide some of the most romantic experiences for couples in love. With all-inclusive programs, you don’t have to worry about daily expenses, bar tabs, over-priced dinners or entertainment costs. You can concentrate on each other. Here are ten resorts that caught our eye and piqued our romantic interest.
Le Blanc Luxury Spa Resort, Cancun
In the midst of the boisterous hotel zone of Cancun, there is a sweet oasis of peace at Le Blanc Luxury Spa Resort. It has a long quiet beach, infinity pools, butler service for your every whim, and a full-service spa where you and your sweetheart can relax with a couples’ massage. There are no children here, so be prepared to enjoy the quiet of a romantic dinner on the beach looking out over the water.
Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia
This unforgettable resort offers views of steep pinnacle islands jutting out of the calm waters along with a rooftop lounge perfect for stargazing. Most rooms come with infinity pools, canopy beds and butler service. The extraordinary architecture features elevated walkways that connect the buildings. Caution: there are no TVs or air conditioners to disturb the peace.
W Retreat & Spa Vieques Island
You can surprise your love with an impromptu engagement on this out island of Puerto Rico, and she won’t have to pack a passport. The W Retreat and Spa has a special lounge at the airport, where you’ll be treated to a welcome drink and then whisked off to your island suite. Activities include horseback riding on a photo-perfect beach, kayaking through clear water and learning the art of relaxation at the amazing spa. (She’ll say yes.)
Sandals La Source, Grenada
Stay in an ocean view love nest at the top of an Italian-style village and take a dip in the heated, private plunge pool on your deck. It’s like swimming in the sky. There is a huge river of pools at this brand new resort, and many different styles of luxury suites. Did I mention the Pink Gin Beach? It’s just a few steps outside your door, waiting for your beach towel.
Travaasa Hana Resort, Maui
It’s hard to find all-inclusive honeymoon packages in Hawaii, but this chic resort in Maui is the exception. This is pure romance and peace in a seaside cottage: there are no TVs, radios or clocks to spoil the experience. Enjoy your private hot tub, take hula lessons or venture into the sea on a stand-up paddleboard. In quieter moments, you might learn to make a lei.
Spicers Peak Lodge, Queensland, Australia
Way off the beaten path, this elegant Australian lodge is set on a mountaintop in Queensland’s Scenic Rim. Choose an elegant suite or private lodge with stunning scenery and award-winning gourmet dining. For relaxation, indulge in exotic and relaxing treatments at Spa Anise. For the adventurous, there are hiking and biking trails and other invigorating outdoor activities in a pristine wilderness.
Galley Bay Resort and Spa, Antigua
The romantic Galley Bay Resort offers secluded cottages with private plunge pools and private alfresco dinners on a perfect beach. This luxurious getaway in Antigua offers newlyweds a chance to be alone and pampered, with a new spa/salon, three exceptional restaurants and the Barefoot Grill by the beach.
Viceroy Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Riviera Maya, with its soft sand beaches and constant sunshine, is a romantic destination for all seasons. This elegant seaside refuge is set in a tropical Mayan forest with private villas and a luxurious spa. You’ll think you’ve arrived at a millionaire’s private estate as you’re led through jungle paths to your secluded hideaway. Be sure to experience the traditional Mayan rituals for body and soul at the spa.
Royal Davui Island Resort, Fiji
This adults-only island paradise is located just off the southern coast of Fiji, with just 16 luxurious villas and all the privacy you can stand. The food is simply exceptional, and the breakfast picnic on a sandbar is highly recommended. You’ll have the run of the island, as it’s the only resort there, and there are plenty of places to be alone, together.
Villa Buena Onda, Costa Rica
For a romantic adventure, it’s hard to beat the beachside resorts of Costa Rica. This eco-friendly country offers jungle zip lines, rainforest tours, white water rafting and incredible Caribbean or Pacific beaches. The Villa Buena Onda offers a two-tier pool with poolside bar and a shuttle to three different beaches. You can walk to a picturesque seaside village. There are only seven villas, so it is intimate and far from the crowds.
