When I vacation, I want to know that I’m getting the best possible option that is unique to anything I’ve ever experienced before. For example, if there’s an ideal suite with a Jacuzzi on the balcony or choosing a resort on an island that I can explore, I want to know about it.
Resort photos can start to look similar and it’s hard to tell the unique ones apart from the rest. So, I wanted to give you insider tips to some resorts that stand out when it comes to being luxurious and unique.
10 Unique Resorts You Maybe Didn’t Know About, But Can’t Live Without Visiting
1. Palafitos at El Dorado Maroma, Riviera Maya
Want an overwater bungalow?
I’m still swooning over these Overwater Bungalows. These bungalows reside on the ocean with glass floors, your own private balcony, private mini pool and lounge area ll overlooking the ocean. You get private access to your own restaurant with some of the best food my mouth has ever tasted in my life. For more photos and inspiration, read this.

Three unique pools and holistic spa and wellness center drive home a sense of relaxed luxury, while exciting pop-up events insert a touch of spontaneity into the experience.
3. Body Holiday at LeSport, St. Lucia

Rarely do you mind an all inclusive resort in an exotic destination like St. Lucia. Set on a secluded cove at the edge of the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by tropical gardens and rain forest, The Body Holiday at LeSport is the ultimate getaway for body and mind.

4. El Dorado Royale, Riviera Maya
Want to stay somewhere with a cause?
As part of the Riviera Maya’s sustainability program, this El Dorado Resort has an on-site, 76,000 square-foot hydroponic greenhouse that produces fresh herbs and vegetables for true farm-to-table dining experiences to all their resorts in Mexico.
Their world-class restaurants host renowned chefs cater some of the best dishes I have experienced. You can go a step further and enjoy dinner and a show with their Fuentes Culinary Theatre. Their chef is paired with a wine expert “…to entertain and inform you as a lavish, beautifully choreographed, multicourse meal is prepared in front of you.” Dinner and wine and a show?! What’s not to like.
5. Secrets Playa Mujeres, Playa Mujeres
Looking for your own private pool?
Secrets Playa Mujeres is one of the only resorts in this area, where you can snag this much privacy. Not to mention, it’s the perfect place if you want a mix of social and intimate vibes. The beach is shared with Dreams Playa Mujeres which you can go visit if you want some activity, but it also feels so secluded and private. Many books have been read on this beach.
