Visualising yourself in a world-class resort brings thoughts of luxury, extravagance and stunning vistas.
Whether you choose to sunbathe on a secluded island in your own private villa, mix with the rich and famous in the Caribbean or immerse yourself in a bustling cosmopolitan destination, these getaways are usually associated with a high expenditure.
Yet all-inclusive holidays for the elite have risen in popularity with the ‘one price for all’ option no longer associated with cheap package deals. Here we look at five of the world’s best all-inclusive resorts and what makes them so spectacular.
Royalton Cayo Santa Maria (Cuba)
The chain of Royalton Luxury Resorts have trademarked the concept of All-In Luxury, and this idea is best seen in the world-class resort of Cayo Santa Maria. Priding itself on unparalleled features and facilities, Royalton Cayo Santa Maria also offers a 24 hour room and butler service to its guests. Elegant dining areas and stunning suites overlooking stretches of pristine coastline make this an opulent choice for holidaymakers.
Sultan Gardens (Egypt)
This award-winning resort in Sharm El-Sheikh is one of many all-inclusive wonderlands located on the North African coastline. With over 220 metres of private beaches, borders of lush gardens and endless luxury facilities, this is definitely a resort that should not be overlooked. All inclusive holidays to Egypt are easy to book, and resorts like Sultan Gardens show just why North Africa is now considered a top all inclusive destination.
Motu Teta (Tahiti)
The private island of Motu Teta advertises itself as ‘your dream island’ and it’s easy to see why. The residence itself is sleek and refined while still incorporating Tahitian design so it remains authentic to local culture. If relaxing on the villa’s large veranda or dining with the help of a private chef becomes a little tedious, Motu Teta also offers a range of local activities to visitors. With all of this and more at one price, this secluded island getaway is unmissable.
The Kurumba resort is located on the North Male Atoll of the Maldives, surrounded by the coral gardens and shimmering crystal blue seas of this paradisical setting. The residences that guests can choose from are some of the best in the world, ranging from The Royal Kurumba Residence to places like the Private Villa with Jacuzzi and Beachfront Deluxe Bungalow. The resort also offers a wide variety of dining experiences and many other island secrets are waiting to be discovered.
Galley Bay Resort and Spa (Antigua)
The idea of world-class resorts is synonymous with the Caribbean and the Galley Bay Resort and Spa does not disappoint. Open-air restaurants allow visitors to sit in the sunshine with the breeze of the palm trees adding to the romantic dining atmosphere, while the luxury cottages sit near a tropical turquoise lagoon for visitors to relax by. The renowned spa facilities and award-winning location show this is Antigua at its best.
These resorts are examples of how all inclusive holidays do not compromise on stunning destinations and world-class facilities. All inclusive packages can still mean paradise and, thanks to resorts like these, the all-in holiday option is more prestigious and luxurious than ever.
