My top 3 all inclusive hotels
It’s suprising to see that many travelers prefer backpacking and sleeping in uncomfortable places. I won’t say I’ve never left on a trip with a backpack, because in some destinations it’s just more convenient. However, being able to sleep in a cozy luxury room and then choose from buffet meals is my preference. I am so into all inclusive resorts that make trips easier.
Being a vegan, I find it hard to get food I really can eat. But buffet breakfast at all inclusive hotels always have fruit (which is what I usually eat first thing in the morning.) And buffet dinners offer loads of fresh vegetables so I can make my own salad. Otherwise in some destinations it would be too difficult to explain what I eat and what is outside of my diet, especially with a language barrier.
And we are finally getting to my point why I will always say yes to all inclusive holidays: easy to get vegan food, the staff treats you great, there’s usually a pool and/or spa too and rooms are more luxurious than not.
Out of more than 50 countries, what are my best all inclusive experiences?
Top all inclusive hotels I’ve stayed at:
1. Samabe villas
During my month stay in Bali I also spent a few days at Samabe on the Nusa Dua beach. Until now Samabe was the most luxurious resort I’ve ever stayed at. I got a whole villa to myself with a private swimming pool where I could sunbathe topless 😀
I also had a 24/7 butler so could order all the top meals I wanted, get a massage in my villa or by the pool, go on a trip, walk along the beach and sip a young coconut whenever I craved one. Now when thinking of it, I want to go back to Samabe.
2. Hacienda Tres Rios
Hacienda Tres Rios is located in one of my favorite destinations – Riviera Maya in Mexico. Everything at the resort is amazing. Its high-end restaurants offer perfect food, so many salads and exotic fruit (e.g. papaya, pineapple, dragon fruit etc.), and also fresh juices and chocolaterie full of sweet treats. It’s all part of all inclusive packages O:)
There’s also yoga classes, swimming pools, beautiful white sand beach and you can even go kayaking or snorkeling into a cenote (sink hole.) Segway trips around the resort are also possible. And I even got pampered at the beautiful Ya’ax Che spa with a massage and romantic hot bath with flowers. Aw, memories!
Hacienda Tres Rios also offers a unique experience I’ve never seen anywhere else. The Sense Adventure Tour makes you try all your senses when with closed eyes you experience different elements such as water, sand, music etc. Very unique!
3. Divi Aruba
Aruba is one of the nicest Caribbean islands I’ve visited so far. And where else should I stay there if not at an all inclusive resort? Divi resort was the best option. Divi is sister resort to Tamarijn and altogether they have 7 restaurants which are part of all inclusive package. Thumbs up for fresh fruit and many tasty salads and other special meals there.
I also really liked the swimming pools, stunning private beach with perfect sunsets, loads of free activities, such as yoga or beach volleyball, live music every night and good spa. We had so much fun att the disco there, watched a wedding on the beach, and had fun in the sea with floated animals. Aw, and there’s also some cute live animals dwelling around, such as lizards, iguanas and birds which gave me a feeling of staying in the wilderness while still being on the beach. Divi resort is a lovely place in Aruba, that’s for sure.
