The Caribbean’s Best Luxury All-Inclusive Resorts

27 Aug

Sometimes an all-inclusive resort is best for a luxury experience. There is that extra degree of luxury, the one of never having to reach for your wallet, of leaving nothing to chance, so you can completely relax and soak it all in with an emphasis on convenience and ease. So looking only at the luxury category of all-inclusives makes it something even more magical. This is not just a list of the best all-inclusive resorts — anyone can do that. This is about those extra-special all-inclusives where there are no limits on the unlimited. As Adam Stewart said to Caribbean Journal last fall, “nobody ever asks for less luxury.” And at these resorts, that’s never a problem. They go beyond top level service and accommodations, blending it all into something unique. These are the Caribbean’s best luxury all-inclusive resorts.

Grand Velas Riviera Maya

This isn’t just one of the region’s pre-eminent all-inclusives, it’s one of its pre-eminent hotels. At every level, luxury is a necessity. That means some of the best food at any hotel in the Caribbean (prepared by world-class chefs) and 539 simply massive suites.

Fowl Cay, Bahamas

This is one of the ultimate luxury Caribbean getaways, all-inclusive or not. It’s famous for providing its guests with their own boat (and tank of gas) but the luxury is even greater — large villas, striking views of the Exumas’ radiant blue seas and top-notch food, whether served in your villa or at the Hill House eatery.

Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya

This feels a luxury resort in a nature preserve. Here, the luxury is in how the place makes you feel — it the experience of grand luxury and indulgence with the lightness of a wellness resort.

Galley Bay, Antigua

Across 98 rooms, Galley Bay manages to pull off quite a feat. It feels as if every inch of the property is at a higher level. We’ve long been big fans of the hotel’s Gauguin cottages, but the quality extends to everything, from the dining to the quality of the sand.

Le Blanc Spa Resort, Cancun

This isn’t the Cancun you think you know. This is a high-end, adults-only luxury enclave with 260 accommodations and one of the best spas anywhere in the region. And then there’s the food — a culinary tour de force through global cuisine.

Hermitage Bay, Antigua

Here, the luxury is in the beauty of everything. It begins with the white sand coast, and extends to the 27 remarkably-designed suites, all of which, whether beachfront or hillside, simply draw you into the natural landscape of the property.

Spice Island Beach Resort, Grenada

Grenada’s signature resort is a Caribbean standard. This resort with 32 beachfront suites is designed to be not just a great resort, or a great all inclusive, but a uniquely Caribbean hotel. There isn’t really any hotel in the region quite like it.

Sandals LaSource Grenada

Luxury is at home in great design. Here, that’s the case across room categories, most notably in the resort’s Skypool Suites, some of the most stunning rooms you’ll find in the Caribbean today.

The Caves, Jamaica

The luxury at this 90-suite beachfront property is in its overwhelming tranquility. There are just 12 cliffside bohemian-style accommodations here, but it always feels bigger, with a world-class spa, a Blackwell rum bar, private cave dining and a feeling of indulgence. On the edge of Negril, this is a luxury oasis.

Curtain Bluff, Antigua

This a landmark Caribbean resort where the luxury has been a staple for decades. Long a retreat for those seeking elegance without flash, staying here makes you feel like you’re part of a selective but welcoming club.

Excellence Playa Mujeres, Riviera Maya

This is another great example of an all-inclusive resort that challenges what most people think they know about what makes an all-inclusive. The emphasis here is on the good life, from haute cuisine to top-level golf.

Sandals Royal Plantation, Jamaica

This is a Jamaican classic. You can feel the history when you stay here, and you can feel the pedigree that Sandals has cultivated over the last few decades in the region. You have the same Sandals staff and service we’ve all come to expect, with a more intimate feel given its smaller size (just 74 ocean-view suites, all with their own butlers).

Couples Tower Isle, Jamaica

Some of the greatest luxuries are finding special moments with your loved one on a Caribbean beach. Couples has designed their resorts around these moments, and Tower Isle proves just that, with gourmet cuisine, a private island and a picturesque Jamaican setting.

Zoetry Agua Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Zoetry seems to have figured out that one of life’s ultimate luxuries comes from within. Zoetry’s experiences present luxury in a fresh, young but still refined way, with an emphasis on an almost meditative kind of environment. There are 96 suites here, but on a 14-acre site that feels even larger.

The BodyHoliday, St Lucia

Luxury is well-being. Here, there are a seemingly unlimited number of ways to achieve it, from Tai Chi to archery to pilates to a free daily spa treatment. The overarching theme is Zen in the Art of a Caribbean All-Inclusive.
