Overdue for a serious vacation? Take the stress and guesswork out of your next great escape by booking a stay at a completely vegan resort or hotel. It may sound like a little slice of heaven to lounge on the beach by day and be lavished with healthy fine dining by night, but that’s exactly what you can expect when you sign up for a complete plant-based travel package in paradise.
Let someone else do the prep work and planning while you take in the sights, reconnect with nature, and create new memories with the people you love.
You’ll find more vegan-friendly resorts and hotels wherever you go, as more awareness for more compassionate lifestyles continues to spread. Whether you’d prefer a day at the beach or a night on the town, there’s the perfect vegan resort waiting for you along your travel adventures, in all corners of the globe.
No holds barred, an all-inclusive resort rolls out the red carpet when you arrive (figuratively speaking, in most cases) to make your vacation a true departure from the hassles of everyday life. More than just a place to sleep, your price of admission includes food, drinks, activities, and entertainment for the same flat fee.
There may be additional costs for certain services, like spa treatments, or additional alcoholic beverages, but you wouldn’t feel like you were missing anything if you stuck to the same base rate.
Naturally, at a fully vegan hotel you can assume that all the meals and snacks in between are plant-based. No need to ask for ingredient lists (barring food allergies) or make special requests before every service; nothing is off the menu for vegan eaters!
Taking it a step further, rest assured you won’t find any silk sheets, leather couches, or wool slippers in the rooms. Beyond the obvious, many of the best vegan hotels are also eco-friendly, taking active steps to reduce water usage, food waste, and their overall carbon footprint.
The resorts highlighted below are proudly vegan, but you can also find countless vegan-friendly stays at hotels that may not be fully-vegan, but offer fantastic vegan options. Here is just one example:
