A few decades ago, the term “luxury all-inclusive” might have seemed like an oxymoron. But that’s how much the all-inclusive space has changed, particularly in the Caribbean — where all-inclusive has become far more of a technical term than a qualitative one.
And at the finest all-inclusives in the region, the luxury abounds, from truly gourmet cuisine to cutting-edge design and world-class service.
That means things like champagne breakfasts on the beach. Your own ocean-view plunge pool. A room that opens out right onto the sand. Your own private, fully-gassed boat.
Luxury all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean range from tiny boutique all-inclusive resorts to more “traditional” large resorts; but wherever you choose: two things main remain constant: you’ll never have to reach for your wallet, and you’ll have everything your vacation needs.
Here are our favorite luxury all-inclusive resorts to try in 2022.
Hammock Cove, Antigua It’s the quintessential luxury all-inclusive resort, set on one of the most majestic bays in Antigua. But the biggest story at Hammock Cove is the design: every single room has its own private plunge pool and entertainment deck, meaning no matter where you stay, you’ve got your own mini resort. The food is outstanding, as is the beverage and cocktail program, which even includes an all-inclusive rum bar featuring some of the region’s finest aged expressions.
