For an all-inclusive vacation, these resorts do it best — from a safari lodge in Tanzania to a romantic getaway in the Caribbean.
Who wants to worry about constantly pulling out their credit card while on vacation? At these expert-recommended resorts, an all-inclusive stay means knowing your meals, accommodations, and (some) activities are all covered in a flat fee. For a trip that's low-stress, cost-effective, and oftentimes great for families and groups (although we have one stellar couples retreat), our A-List travel advisors recommend some of their favorite luxurious all-inclusive resorts.
Hermitage Bay Antigua
"Hermitage Bay Antigua is a perfect resort for those with a busy lifestyle who need to escape once a year for true serenity. It's nestled on a hillside with suites overlooking the ocean, and guests can relax in private plunge pools." — Jessica Griscavage, Runway Travel Company
Jabali Ridge, Tanzania
"In Tanzania's Ruaha National Park, Jabali Ridge’s eight suites are hidden among the rocky boulders that cocoon the property. An infinity pool, a spa, and plenty of places to relax ensure that time in camp is as memorable as time out in the bush, and the reason why many of our guests return time and again. Expert guides lead walking safaris, game drives, and night drives. Although it’s one of the largest national parks in the country and rich in wildlife, Ruaha is one of the least busy places to visit in Tanzania, so safaris here feel remote and exclusive." — Susan Neva, Alluring Africa

Curtain Bluff, Antigua
"I just returned from Curtain Bluff in Antigua — it's fantastic for families, especially given the all-inclusive value, and they work with a great foundation called Old Road Fund, which aids Antiguan and Barbudan communities, improving access to education and healthcare." — Kimberly Wilson Wetty, Valerie Wilson Travel
Pimalai Resort and Spa, Thailand
"I love Pimalai Resort and Spa in Thailand's Ko Lanta island district. It has a strong sense of place, including the design of the buildings, with steep Thai roofs and local materials. While it's a bit back from the beachfront, this lets you drink in the views out over the Andaman Sea. And it has so much to offer guests in terms of activities and spa options. It's a wonderful break as you travel around Thailand or the rest of Southeast Asia." — Grant Ekelund, Inside Asia
Jade Mountain, Saint Lucia
"Jade Mountain, while not typically all-inclusive, offers a 'total romance package' that includes everything but a swimsuit. This resort fills every honeymoon wish list, with views of St. Lucia's Piton mountains. Whether a couple wants to lounge at the spa all day or partake in activities like a sunset sail, hiking, or a chocolate-making class, they can find it all here." — Kara Bebell and Harlan deBell, The Travel Siblings
Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge, British Columbia
"I recommend Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge, close to Tofino, British Columbia. The epic setting of the lush temperate rain forest with the views of the dramatic Pacific Ocean and local waterways is unforgettable. The region is filled with black bears, whales, and other wildlife species. Adventures and excursions in the area are exhilarating, and the food program... is second to none." — Marc Télio, Entrée Destinations
