With Spice Island’s all-inclusive package, guests get access to amenities including all-day dining and premium drinks, but make sure you’re making time to unwind at the Janissa Spa in between the impressive culinary experiences and gorgeous sand beaches. The spa's romantic relaxation lounge features a couples treatment room, open-air rain showers, and a cedar sauna. Afterwards, retreat back to your ocean-front Royal Cinnamon beach suite, featuring a four-poster bed and a spa-style soaking tub. If the kids are coming along, know that Spice Island is the most family-friendly resort of this trio, allowing kids and offering a designated kids pool. The concierge can coordinate childcare on request, too.

Honorable mentions

While these resorts are not true all-inclusives, they offer full- and half-board meal plans, so you can pick and choose what works best for you. (Note, often alcohol is not included in these plans, which can be cost-saving for sober travelers and others.)

This private island paradise is truly one-of-a-kind, from its wellness-centric activities to its private and unique rooms set on 1,000 unspoilt acres of beach. From spacious suites with incredible views of the ocean, to the exclusivity of being the only resort on the entire island, this unique spot is the epitome of romance. After lounging in a beach chair all afternoon in your own private cabana at the adults-only pool, grab a cocktail at the bar, and watch the sun sink into the turquoise waters. Later, indulge in a Japanese bath after a couples massage. In the mood for more romance? The hotel offers a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences, including a private butler for beach house rentals, private beach picnics for two, and custom tiki hut dinners.
