Who wants to think about money on a vacation? With these new all-inclusive packages, you can score a deal and leave your cash behind.
Grand Miramar Luxury Suites & Residences – Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
At this 80-suite property, “all you can eat” is no joke when you opt for the new plan, introduced in April. Kick back with martinis and 360-degree views at the rooftop Gin Joint, or sample locally inspired fare at three restaurants, all lending ocean views. Rates also include 12 hours of open bar daily, as well as shuttle service to downtown Puerto Vallarta.
This 21-suite boutique hotel hugs the sugar sand of Grace Bay Beach. With its new package, all meals and drinks from sunup (crab eggs Benedict) to sundown (jerk grouper) at Kitchen 218 and Beach Deck are included — even upscale riffs on Provo’s famous conch, served Carpaccio style.
Laluna – Grenada
“La luna” means the moon and that’s pretty much where the perks stop at this 16-cottage boutique property now that there’s a new all-inclusive resort option. For one flat fee, the seven-night package includes all meals, drinks, a four-hour island tour, daily yoga and meditation, and — this is the best part — a Balinese-style couples massage.
The new Casa de Campo Vacation Experience at this 7,000-acre resort in La Romana means more than just eating and drinking at its seven restaurants and six bars — from sushi taquitos at Pubbelly Sushi to foie gras with plantain marmalade at La Caña by Il Circo. You also get access to unlimited tennis, horseback riding and nonmotorized water sports.
The long flights became even more worth it when this resort rolled out its all-inclusive resort package. The property also boasts its own Dive Center and a three-mile white-sand beach. Daily snorkeling over the coral reef (via a traditional Maldivian boat), sports activities and two half-day excursions to nearby islands are all included along with all meals and beverages at its five restaurants.
