Do you need a vacation away from it all? These resorts are hidden gems offering true retreat and refuge from the stressors of everyday life.
5 Resorts That Are True Hidden Gems:
1. Jade Mountain in St. Lucia
Jade Mountain sits in the lap of St. Lucia’s majestic, scenic beauty.
Guests can expect open living spaces with a bedroom, common area and private infinity pool. The open floor plan allows you to feel as though you are living within the landscapes of St. Lucia.
While there, guests can truly unplug because the resort is deliberately technology-free — no telephones, radio or television. So instead of being plugged in, you can visit the property’s restaurants, bars, boutiques, art gallery, spa, beach and more.
2. Sunscape Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino
As the only all-inclusive on Curacao, this resort offers unlimited and worry-free fun for guests.
Sunscape’s private beach is protected by a near-shore breakwater. Just beyond this barrier, lies Sugar Reef where coral begins as shallow as six feet, creating an epicenter for scuba diving and snorkeling. Here you will see bright orange coral and a vast array of ocean life are eye candy to goggled onlookers.
At Sunscape Curacao, there’s a plethora of activity to choose from including windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, beach volleyball and floating trampolines. Also, this ocean front resort is just two miles away from the historic district of Willemsted, a must-visit for travelers.
3.The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal in Costa Rica
Starwood’s first All Inclusive resort, The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal sits nestled between the lush forests of Costa Rica and sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Here, 2400 acres of beautiful landscape beckon travelers yearning for eco-adventure and tourism. Guests can partake in various activities like golf, swimming, tennis or exploring the vast jungle of one of the nearby Costa Rican national parks. Experience uninterrupted tranquility unwinding on Bali beds by the pool and treat yourself to gourmet cuisine.
4. Las Brisas in Ixtapa, Mexico
The physical location of Las Brisas affects every dimension of the Hotel — it’s a locale with a 360 degree view.
Set on a hillside facing seaward, is a long crescent-shaped stretch of private beach with groomed, silky smooth sand free of vendors. Glance to the right and the left to see various rock formations jetting out into the ocean. Behind, thatched palapas spot the property and, all throughout and beyond the resort, exotic folliage of Zihatinejo/Ixtapa grace the area with a variety of texture and greenery.
There is a quiet and peaceful element to this resort. Even in peak season, it doesn’t feel crowded. A hammock and ocean view are in every room, adding to the serenity this place has to offer. In addition, the staff are cheery and friendly, consistently a highlight of the guest’s experience.
5. Galley Bay Beach Resort in Antigua
This quaint, 98-room property avoids the cookie cutter mold of bigger brand properties. It stands in a category all to itself.
Galley Bay Beach Resort treats its guests to an intimate All Inclusive beach experience — keyword being intimate. Most accommodations are tucked along the landscape of the shore, just steps from the ocean.
Flashy and loud entertainment offered by other Caribbean All Inclusives is exchanged with a low-key vibe at the GB, opening a way to complete relaxation, where socializing and interaction is on a “as-needed” basis.
