When looking up all-inclusive honeymoon packages, it can be a little confusing. The price range can vary, as can what’s included! From destination to destination and hotel to hotel, you might wonder where to start. For example, in the Maldives, all restaurants might not be included, but in Mexico, they often are. In the Maldives, there are often some added activities, but not in other destinations. Let’s break it down – here are the best destinations for all inclusive honeymoon packages.
Mexico is unparalleled for the sheer choice of amazing all-inclusive honeymoon resorts. On the Pacific Coast you have Cabo and along the Caribbean east coast, the Riviera Maya from Cancun to Tulum. You’ll find beautiful stretches of beach with hotels for every taste and budget, usually with plenty of restaurants to choose from. One of our favourite hotel groups is Secrets Resorts & Spas. Mexico is also wonderful because you can also leave your resort to explore whether it be for culture, history, or partying. Attentive service with poolside cocktail delivery, à la carte restaurants, and swim-up suites.
Overall, the Caribbean is one of the best regions in the world for all-inclusive honeymoon resorts with some fantastic hotel brands like Sandals Resorts, perfect for that tropical paradise beach honeymoon treat! Barbados is one of our favourite Caribbean islands with a mixture of tropical beaches and plenty of culture and nightlife. Even when you go all-inclusive in the resort, you can still pop out for some nightlife or to explore the island.
Jamaica is similar, with a vast array of all-inclusive resorts around the island but plenty of cultural and outdoor pursuits for those who want to explore some of the time.
The Dominican Republic has stunning beaches and some of the best all-inclusive honeymoon resorts in the Caribbean. It also has a jungle interior with fun outdoor activities. Much like Mexico, the all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic have many restaurants included.
The Maldives is a magical honeymoon destination, ideal for all inclusive honeymoon packages where you can truly switch off in one of the romantic overwater bungalows, maybe even with your own private plunge pool. One thing to note, is that not all resorts are all-inclusive, particularly at the ultra-luxury level. In some all-inclusive resorts, not all restaurants are included, so it’s worth checking individual resort packages. However, one lovely touch is that most resorts offer added extras like water sports, sunset cruises and/or spa treatments included in the price.
With blue shades of the Aegean Sea, whitewashed buildings and gorgeous beaches, Greece is one of our favourite honeymoon destinations. While we love to recommend an island-hop to explore the Greek islands, for couples who just want to unwind, Greece has all-inclusive honeymoon resort options across the mainland and islands like Crete and Rhodes.
Mauritius is a wonderful destination for all inclusive honeymoon packages with many resorts offering great discounts to couples on honeymoon. With beaches of dazzling white sand and shimmering turquoise lagoon, and delicious cuisine, Mauritius is the perfect post-wedding treat – want to dive deeper?

The heavenly African paradise Zanzibar, with white sand and cerulean waters, is ideal for either a tropical beach honeymoon in its own right or a tag on with a safari on mainland Tanzania or Kenya – you can find out the difference between these iconic destinations here. Known as Spice Island, you can spend your days lying by the magical Indian Ocean beaches, although there is plenty to explore too if you can tear yourself away. The capital Stone Town is an old trading port and a really interesting place plus there is incredible snorkelling and diving.
So many cruise lines now offer drinks included and even when drinks are not included as standard, many allow you to add on a package once you’ve booked your cabin. Including drinks and the ability to pre-book excursions and spa treatments means you can create a truly all-inclusive honeymoon. Think about sailing the Greek Islands, the Southern Caribbean or Oceania or do something different like Norwegian Fjords or Alaska.
