The classic all-inclusive concept means everything you want in a vacation without having to take out your wallet. Often, though, that can also mean never leaving the hotel.
That’s why one resort in St. Lucia is reinventing the all-inclusive concept with a rather clever idea: combining dining options both inside and outside the hotel.
In the Bay Gardens Resort’s exclusive “Dine Around” all-inclusive program, guests get access to seven additional restaurants in nearby Rodney Bay Village — meaning the option of eating out up to three times on stays of seven days or more — and the cost of transportation is included, too.
It’s thanks to the work by the hotel to partner with restaurants in town like Fire Grill, Buzz Seafood & Grill, Elegance Cafe, Memories of Hong Kong, Rituals Sushi, Tapas on the Bay, Jacques Waterfront Dining and Spice of India, spreading the impact of all-inclusive visitors around the community.
It’s a novel concept, but this small hotel in St. Lucia may be on to something big.
Of course, you can always just visit the best St Lucia all inclusive resorts.
