Of all the Caribbean island destinations that are popular among world travelers, Barbados stands out for its party scene, local hospitality, secret beaches, and delicious cuisine. Like many Caribbean destinations, many tourists opt for all-inclusive options to take the planning, guesswork, and hassles out of their trips. Going all-inclusive is a great way to indulge on your vacation without guilt or over-thinking how little costs add up. So, if Barbados is on your island bucket list (and it should be!), here are nine resorts to choose from for your stay.
Turtle Beach by Elegant Hotels
For an upscale all-inclusive option in Barbados, choose the highly-rated Turtle Beach resort by Dover Beach and the St. Lawrence Gap. This is a wonderful all-inclusive option for families, with room rates starting from $429. The resort offers complimentary non-motorized water sports, a kids’ club, island tours, and culinary tours. All of your meals and beverages, fitness center and workout classes, beach and pool services, Wi-Fi, and golf are included at the resort as well. Come here to get active on the water with boogie boarding, sailing, kayaking, and snorkeling with your family.
Waves Hotel & Spa
Head over to Saint James Parish in Barbados to experience the wonderful rooms and amenities at Waves Hotel & Spa. This was Barbados’ first all-inclusive mind and wellness boutique hotel and was inspired by tranquility and relaxation. There are three on-site restaurants here and a late-night lounge to help you make the most of your all-inclusive package. Inclusions for every guest include meals and beverages, water taxi rides, Wi-Fi, fitness center classes, spa treatments, and motorized water sports.
