Let's be real: eating right while traveling hasn't always been easy. Without access to a kitchen to make your own meals, it can be much harder to make smart decisions—especially when you're surrounded by indulgent dining options. Luckily, all that is changing now that more and more hotels and resorts are ditching their calorie-laden dishes for more health-conscious menus.
In a 2011 TripAdvisor survey, 57% of people confessed to eating unhealthy foods more often on vacation than they do at home. And another 2013 TripIt survey revealed that 66% of travelers find eating healthy on the go to be stressful.
The truth is, there are lots of ways to avoid blowing your diet on vacation. For instance, you might pack some of your own snacks or pop by a local supermarket to stock up on healthy nibbles. That way, you're less likely to grab those processed convenience foods that tend to be high in sugar, salt, and fat.
But if all that sounds like too much trouble, you can also seek out accommodations that make it easy to eat right. And we did the groundwork for you by rounding up the best healthy eating hotels in every state, powered by data from Hotels.com. So, what are you waiting for? Book the flight, pack your bags, and rest assured that you can enjoy your getaway without getting off track. Then, be sure to check out our list of The Best Expensive Restaurant in Every State.

When you need a quick bite on your way out to explore the area, swing by the grab-and-go pantry Restore for a healthy snack.

While the breakfast menu includes smart options like mountain muesli, egg white scramble loaded with veggies, and a protein-infused protein smoothie, dinnertime dishes include organic chicken breast or salmon with cast-iron seasonal vegetables. Montage Deer Valley is also one of the few accommodations that feature an entirely separate vegan menu, with a black bean-brown rice burger, super grain salad, smoked tofu stir fry, and more.
VERMONT: Topnotch Resort in Stowe
This majestic mountainside resort attracts countless visitors each winter, in part due to the fact that it's less than a 10-minute drive from central Stowe. But for health-conscious travelers, there's so much more to love about Topnotch Resort than its location.
The year-round heated pool, and weight training and fitness classes, all make it easy to keep up with workouts, and the menu at the on-site restaurant Roost features fresh, Vermont-harvested ingredients. Start your day with a vegetable omelet, avocado toast, steel-cut oatmeal, or gluten-free almond bread with yogurt. At dinnertime, you'll have your pick of many gluten-free dishes, like whitefish tacos, avocado chickpea salad; and beet "poke" with cucumbers, cabbage, and macadamia nuts.
VIRGINIA: Eupepsia Wellness Resort in Bland
Whether you're looking to lose weight, detox, or achieve another wellness objective entirely, this health-focused resort can help you get there. And because you are what you eat, Eupepsia offers balanced vegetarian meals with natural ingredients—many of which are sourced directly from the on-premise greenhouses.
Better yet, these meals are tailored to your specific body type and goals, and contain no preservatives or hormones. Advanced cooking techniques are used to preserve the nutrients in the food, and herbs and spices are incorporated to naturally stimulate digestive enzymes.
WASHINGTON: Salish Lodge&Spa in Snoqualmie
It's almost hard to believe that this serene lodge is just 30 minutes from bustling Seattle — located on a cliff overlooking the magnificent Snoqualmie falls, it boasts quite the scenery. Another factor that gives Salish Lodge&Spa bragging rights is the dining: they've partnered with local farms and purveyors that supply them with high-quality seasonal ingredients, and many of their dishes showcase their own homegrown herbs. While the resort offers an all-vegan menu with options like parsnip soup and za'atar roasted cauliflower, their regular menus have plenty of healthy dishes as well—like a wild mushroom omelet, meat-less burger, and arugula and apple salad.
WEST VIRGINIA: Stonewall Resort in Roanoke
Situated right in the midst of lush hills and tranquil waters, the lakeside Stonewall Resort has much more to offer than just breathtaking views. Stillwaters—the on-premise restaurant—makes eating healthy a cinch, with menu items like a yogurt parfait with activated charcoal, antioxidant-rich spinach salad, fire-roasted vegetable soup, grilled cauliflower steak with plant-based cheese, and a hearty quinoa bowl with veggies.
Even the on-site bar and grill has plenty of lean options, like house-made hummus, herb-roasted beet salad, summer vegetable wrap, and a grilled mushroom sandwich. When your sweet tooth strikes, treat yourself to a slice of the butter bean-based vegan cheesecake made with organic agave nectar and fresh berries.
WISCONSIN: Sundara Inn&Spa in Wisconsin Dells
This serene, secluded retreat is one of the first destination spas in the Midwest — and one of the factors that sets it apart is its multi-purpose wellness facility, which features educational demonstrations on everything from cooking healthy seasonal meals to blending balanced smoothies to fit your lifestyle.
Nava, the on-site restaurant, serves a full menu of light but satisfying dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—like a whole-wheat egg white and veggie wrap, gluten-free chia seed banana pancakes, kale and apple salad, plant-based Beyond Burger, and vegan jackfruit "crab" cake.
Have any special dietary needs or requests? Sundara Inn&Spa encourages you to simply let them know ahead of your stay, and they'll make sure they have the necessary ingredients on hand.
WYOMING: Amangani in Jackson
At the foot of the Teton mountain range in Jackson Hole lies this luxury resort, which serves up fresh fish, sustainable meat, and seasonal local produce in the dining room at every meal. Amangani, which translates to "peaceful home" in the Shoshone language, is a wellness-oriented resort chain—which explains the Peloton-equipped exercise studio. But that focus is especially evident in the thoughtful menus at The Grill and the Grand Terrace Bar.
Good luck choosing between chia seed parfait, egg white goat cheese frittata, and gluten-free coconut pancakes at breakfast. Lunchtime options include cantaloupe gazpacho, Peruvian ceviche with sweet potato, and a plant-based Impossible Burger with white bean hummus and pickled veggies. Finally, the farm-to-table dinner menu features a citrus salad, mushroom "steak" and pan-seared halibut with farro and fennel puree.
The only snag? Saying farewell to these mouthwatering menus once your getaway ends.
