Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the United States

View all United States Hotels

Although all-inclusive resorts are less popular in the United States than Mexico or Caribbean islands, there are some available for travelers who want to simplify their vacation. From Hawaii to New Hampshire, these hotels have all-inclusive packages available so you don't have to think too hard about what you'll be eating for meals. Note that all-inclusive packages in the U.S. rarely include alcohol, but for families looking to save on meals and couples looking to avoid a party scene, these picks might be just the ticket. Take a look at our selections for the best all-inclusive hotels in the United States and start planning your getaway!

  1. The Travaasa Hana, Maui overlooking Hana Bay delivers rustic luxury in the middle of Maui's lush, secluded east coast. Guests can expect incredible service, a top spa, excellent food, a long list of stuff to do, and only 70 rooms on acres of uncrowded property. The rooms are large, clean, sleekly furnished -- and stripped of TVs, air conditioners, clocks, and radios. The all-inclusive package includes three meals daily, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, and a $175 resort credit per person per day, which can be used toward spa treatments and private classes. It's hard to reach unless you fly, but worth the trip. 

  2. Deep in the Poconos, The Lodge at Woodloch is an upscale adult-only retreat whose spa aesthetic feels miles away from the area's infamous gaudy honeymoon suites and heart-shaped hot tubs. It has all the usual perks of an all-inclusive resort in the region, with acres of woodland, a private lake, and an adjacent golf club, but the restaurant here is a grown up farm-to-table affair with some of its produce sourced from its own garden. The all-inclusive rates also include group fitness classes and lectures, guided group excursions, and chef's cooking demonstrations. On top of substantial rates for rooms that are somewhat dated, alcohol and extras don't come cheap, but couples looking for a relaxing spa holiday should find what they seek here. 

  3. This gorgeous farm hotel is a secluded, serene haven for foodies and nature lovers. Guests can immerse themselves in the beauty of the Appalachians by enjoying the venue's 4,200 acres of land and all the various activities offered. The restaurant, The Barn, offers a true farm-to-table dining experience as a majority of the produce is picked from the property's garden. There's also a stunning, tranquil spa and two pools that visitors can enjoy. Guests can stay in luxurious cottages or in a charming room in the Main House. All-inclusive packages include meals and access to stocked pantries; spa treatments and certain activities will cost extra. 

  4. Historic Tapoco Lodge is rustic mid-range hotel in a beautiful setting on the Cheoah River. It’s not far from Tail of the Dragon Road, a popular destination for motorcyclists, and has a grill where travelers stop to eat outside while watching the river. There are 31 rooms with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and microwaves; some have river views. It’s a good fit for couples and families with teens, but note that children under 12 are not allowed. The all-inclusive plan includes a hearty buffet breakfast and three-course dinner. For outdoor activities, there are kayaking and fishing on the river, and guests enjoy the free s’more supplies provided for the outdoor fire pits. 

  5. Mackinac Island’s best known property, Grand Hotel is a tourist destination unto itself. Built in 1887, this big white building with a vast porch has 390 guest rooms, and charges non-guests admission to experience its preserved 19th-century grandeur. There’s plenty to do besides shop and eat at the four-pearl, resort-like property, which has a 220-foot-long swimming pool, two nine-hole golf courses, and a full schedule of children’s activities during the summer. One of the biggest draws is the five-course dinner in the hotel’s Main Dining Room, which maintains a strict formal dress code in the evening. This meal is included in the all-inclusive rates, as is breakfast and a lunch buffet.

  6. Travaasa Austin is an upscale spa resort set on the hilltop of a gorgeous nature preserve with forested canyons, about half an hour from downtown Austin. Its 72 rooms are housed in seven buildings and offer private balconies with beautiful canyon or garden views. Hiking trails, an infinity-edge pool enclosed by a wooden deck, and a luxurious spa are just some of the amenities here, and there's a restaurant serving organic, local fare, with many of the ingredients used sourced from the hotel's own farm. The serene atmosphere is furthered by the over-16 policy. Guests can choose to stay a la carte, or opt for the all-inclusive package, which comes with the addition of all meals and a $175 daily resort credit per person to use towards spa treatments and private classes.

  7. Canyon Ranch is a health spa and all-inclusive resort in north Tucson near the Santa Catalina Mountains. Here the focus is on wellness, nutrition, and fitness. Daily fitness classes along with informational lectures and a menu packed with healthy, low-calorie food help guests to jumpstart (or maintain) a healthy lifestyle. The color palette of the southwest inspired the decor of the rooms, which come complete with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and iPod docks. Immaculate, peaceful grounds and focused spa treatments all provide an incredibly relaxing environment. While many guests report feeling renewed after a visit -- especially after spending time in the 80,000-square-foot spa complex -- there is a hefty nightly resort fee and a four-night minimum stay.

  8. This rustic, all-inclusive resort is a quintessential Western dude ranch surrounded by miles of gorgeous mountains and desert. The property borders Saguaro National Park East, where guests can enjoy guided horseback rides, hiking, and mountain biking. There’s also swimming, communal ranch meals, and kids’ activities. Despite the resort's remote location, guests can stay plugged in with free Wi-Fi access. Guest rooms, however, lack TVs -- though for some, that only adds to the authenticity of the experience.

  9. Set on 3,000 acres between Phoenix and Tucson, the White Stallion Ranch is an all-inclusive, family-oriented dude ranch with 41 Western-style rooms. Family-run for 50 years, the White Stallion looks like a movie set, with desert, mountains, enormous saguaro cacti, and genuine cowboys filling its grounds. Activities include horseback riding, rodeo skills, rock climbing, and hiking for all ages and skill levels. The ranch has an authentic Western feel, from the family-style dining room to the rustic-luxe cabins. All-inclusive rates include three meals and all-day snacks. 

  10. Stonehurst Manor is a charming (verging on dated) mid-range option for those looking for a unique but reasonably priced place to stay. With only 26 rooms, and full-service breakfast and dinner included in the rates, this hotel has a cozy bed-and-breakfast vibe. Each room is unique, with its own distinctive character, and guests will be able to find a number of options to suit their style and budget. However, many feel overall the decor is dated; picture older wood furniture and lots of florals.

  11. While many resorts in the Poconos cater only to couples, the mid-range Woodloch Pines is a family-focused resort that sees guests returning year after year, personalizing traditions rooted here since 1958. The dizzying array of year round activities -- hiking, sledding, ice-skating, go-kartsbumper boats, sailing, and group contests -- ensure fun and games for everyone. Rooms are comfortable and clean, ranging from simple motel-style outbuildings to huge private houses on the lake. The all-inclusive rates cover meals and most drinks, though the massive dining room with family-style plates may not be for everyone. Watch out for built-in gratuities and fees for some activities.
