If you like to hang out with other singletons; or simply want to enjoy your own company without feeling conspicuous, here are the all-inclusives we recommend for single and solo travelers.
1. Hedonism Resorts, Jamaica
The Hedonism resorts, run by the all-inclusive resort company SuperClubs, are known as the most “over-the-top” adults-only resorts in the world. You can choose from two in Jamaica, Hedonism III on the North Coast, which features a disco with a see-through water slide built directly above the dance floor, and Hedonism II, set upon a prime piece of waterfront property in Negril. It offers all night parties, two stunning beaches, one of which allows nude sunbathing, along with all you can drink and eat deals. Either resort is the type of place to go if you are looking to let loose and shatter inhibitions. Themed parties are hosted nightly, including the legendary pajamas and pasties party.
2. Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa, Puerto Rico
For singles who are more interested in a quiet escape, soaking up nature and plenty of sunshine, this off-the-beaten-path resort along Puerto Rico’s lush southern coast is ideal. The expansive property is set across a half-mile of magnificent sands, adjacent to the largest coastal dry forest in the world. As a full-service resort you’ll also have access to upscale amenities and facilities including swimming pools, water sports and a fitness center. Complete spa services are offered at The Spa which specializes in massage and body treatments with relaxing techniques and healing touches for the body. There are a number of options for things to do in the area as well, including Museo de Arte de Ponce, known for its 19th-century English paintings and Baroque paintings from the 17th-century.
3. Club Med Turkoise, Turks and Caicos
Club Med is known for setting the standard when it comes to singles resorts. While you’ll find its properties throughout the world, Turkoise, an all-inclusive resort on Turks and Caicos is adults-only and offers a pristine 12-mile stretch of powdery sand beach at the edge of the dazzling Caribbean, along with lots of water sports options. Enjoy everything from scuba diving and sailing, to the chance to participate in more unique activities, like the flying trapeze and circus stunts, along with dancing under the stars.
4. Breezes Bahamas, Nassau, Bahamas
Another great Bahamas options for singles is Breezes, famous for its outstanding entertainment and fun themed nights. This all-inclusive resort doesn’t allow tipping, so singles who are on a tight budget might find it a bit more reasonable too. The property is set across the fabulous white, powdery sands of Cable Beach and is ideal for singles with its excellent location close to casinos, lively bars, an array of popular nightclubs, cafes and social hotspots for mingling with other singles. There is also a practically endless list of activities, on land and offshore, including beach and pool volleyball, free windsurfing lessons, kayaking and sailing. A flying trapeze, body painting contests, beachside bashes, a game room, and merengue are just a few of the other exciting options for having a good time.
5. Blau Varadero, Cuba
Cuba is slowly being opened up to Americans who can get a license via the U.S. Office of Foreign Asset Control or go through the new “People to People” program available through tour operators. While few realize it’s now possible to travel here, now may be the time to go before everyone discovers it. Blau Varadero, located an hour and a half’s drive east of Havana, is an all-inclusive property set along an unspoiled beach at the edge of warm Caribbean waters with a wealth of things to do. Enjoy live music in the bar and restaurants, salsa lessons, sports facilities, massage, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and more. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as local and international drinks are included and available 24 hours a day. While you’re in Cuba, you won’t want to miss exploring Havana, with its 1950s cars parked in front of colonial and neo-classical architecture, it feels like a trip back through time.
6. The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio, Italy
With its tranquil, breathtaking setting surrounded on one side by the mountains and on the other by the beautiful waters of Lake Como, you’ll be spoiled when it comes to stunning scenery. This destination is ideal for solo travelers looking to get away from it all, while still enjoying plenty of options when it comes to something to do. Alternate between sipping a drink at poolside and indulging in beauty treatments at the Villa Serbelloni SPA. Or, you might want to ask the concierge to arrange for a boat trip to the historic gardens along the lake in springtime, which attracts visitors from across the globe. The luxurious Bernina Express can also be accessed from here for an unforgettable journey into the jaw-dropping scenery of the Alps.
7. Gansevoort Turks + Caicos, Turks and Caicos
This boutique-style resort offers all-inclusive accommodations in an upscale, elegant atmosphere. While it isn’t an adults-only property, it does offer all sorts of fun activities as well as the opportunity for quiet comfort and deep relaxation. Sail along the Grace Bay beach shoreline on a Hobie Cat, or have fun taking advantage of the complimentary kayaking and paddle boarding. With a 7,000-square-foot infinity pool, you’ll never have to fight for a lounge chair – or, a solo spot of the ultra-soft white sands of Providenciales. You can also take part in a hopping nightlife, including music and dancing, as well as casino gambling. A free shuttle is provided for all resort guests to Casablanca Casino which offers all major gaming tables, Texas Hold ‘Em Poke Tournaments and slot machines.
