Join the single in-crowd, who love to suit themselves, especially on vacation – here’s an incentive with a selection of the best All Inclusive resorts for singletons.

Free and single

Singleton – a collective noun thanks to the ever popular Bridget Jones Diaries and the ensuing popular movies starring the lovely Renée Zellweger.

“Travel not to find yourself, but to find out who you have been all along” – Unknown

Solo travel – once thought of as lonesome travel – is becoming more and more popular, and the travel industry is taking note. To be single and to travel alone is not the rare social situation it once was. After all, we all work hard for our holiday buck – why not spend it precisely to suit ourselves? A limited amount of time and money should be spent exactly as we wish, without the restraint of forced consideration for fellow travelers.

Traveling solo can be eye-opening and life changing too. Devise a plan and arrange your own itinerary, go where the wind takes you! Choose from a sunshine-filled wealth of superb all-inclusive resorts, with activities to suit just you, and you alone. You’ll have the choice to make new friends there, or get lost in a book, relaxing in your own time. Get up when you want, eat when you want, and order what you want. Choose that bottle of wine you love, eat more than one delicious dessert – no-one will comment! Interacting with strangers can be fun, but only if you wish, and discovering that traveling alone is actually a brilliant confidence booster, is an eye-opener.

But are there are disadvantages to going it alone? Perhaps you’re the sort of less-intrepid traveller who likes someone else to make the decisions? Or you’re newly-divorced and find yourself a little bit lost in a sea of single folk? Then choose an all-inclusive resort, where all you have to do is turn up. Your time is still your own, but everything has been carefully and thoughtfully laid out for you. In particular, female solo travelers often worry about personal safety.

Using common sense

So, common sense should be deployed. If you find yourself in conversation with someone you’d rather not talk to – be purposefully vague about your room number or guesthouse, and always keep a close eye on your drink. Speaking of alcohol, don’t overdo it, especially tempting when it’s included in the price. But realistically, all-inclusive resorts are safe and secure places to stay, it’s not as though you are trekking across unknown territory alone. So, let’s  take a closer look at some of the best All Inclusive resorts for singletons, and, you never know, you might even meet your own Mark Darcy or Bridget Jones.

Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula is adults only, so there won’t be any large family groups to scramble across on your way to the bar. Enjoy a solo trip to Chichén Itzá, the Mayan ruins or instead a visit to Isla Mujeres and see the protection and reproduction of the turtle population…all in your own time of course. Back at base, enjoy the luxurious Adults-Only suites, or the relaxing Spa. Add international cuisine and you’ll find this solo break might require a return visit.

2. Turks & Caicos

  1. I was surprised to see that you have added an all inclusive resort in Cuba. Where is it located on the Island? South, East, …Are flights becoming more available say from larger cities other than Miami?

    • Hi Sharon – great question!

      Hotel Royal Hicacos is located roughly an hour east of Havana, on the northwest side of Cuba, on a lovely beach peninsula.

      And the good news is that yes, flights are rapidly becoming more available from major cities other than Miami, both AA and United are adding flights as demand increases. It’s also easier now for Americans to travel to Cuba directly (instead of having to sneak in through other countries as we did in the past), but there are a few requirements still such as a form that needs to be filled in at the airport prior to departing the US…….requirements can change daily, so you may want to work with a travel agent, and be sure to stay up-to-date by checking the website of the US Embassy in Havana as well as the US Dept of State’s page on Travel to Cuba.
