Ready to spring into your next vacation? I’ve got the low-down on the best luxury all-inclusive vegan friendly resorts in 2023. I had no idea all-inclusive vegan resorts even existed!
Whether you’re planning your next bestie vacation, a special getaway for two, a mother-daughter adventure or a solo pampering retreat for self-care, staying at a vegan (or vegan-friendly) all-inclusive resort makes it easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle while traveling anytime – and you don’t even have to worry about food. While some resorts are not fully all-inclusive, you are still sure to find chef inspired plant-based meals with deliciously made vegan dishes just about anywhere.
As a raw vegan since 2013, I’ve had my share of challenges. There weren’t many vegan resort options back then. But today, it’s a completely different story for vegan travelers, with luxury hotels worldwide upping their game.
A good all-inclusive vegan friendly resort will have plenty of options to choose from as well as customize any dish you ask for while the best vegan resorts will serve a full blown vegan breakfast and flavorful vegan cuisine that will keep you coming back for more.
Just be sure that when you set off on your travel adventures, you stay clear of resorts and hotels with limited number of options for food and ask if they offer a plant-based menu you can look at before booking to confirm their vegan or vegetarian options.
Bottom line, you want to enjoy your travels to the fullest. So, it goes without saying that the best vegan vacations are hands down the one’s where you don’t have to worry about where or what you are going to eat. Having plenty of vegan dining options to choose from will reduce stress and make it easy to relax and enjoy your stay without having to worry about any of your meals.
If you’re looking for all inclusive resorts with a vegan menu that takes food allergies and dietary restrictions into consideration, your best bet is to contact them ahead of time to make sure they have you covered. Most chefs will accommodate their vegan guests with notice in advance so they have ample time to prepare.

Why Stay at a Vegan Resort?
Staying at a full vegan or vegan-friendly resort makes it easy for vegan travelers to enjoy a worry-free vacation without having to constantly be on the hunt for food or step away from the resort grounds to look for something to eat. At a vegan resort, staff are prepared to enhance your experience and cater to your needs while making your resort stay comfortable and enjoyable – all-inclusive or non-all-inclusive.
Ideally, a luxury, all-inclusive vegan resort is the best way to go for vegan luxury travel lovers!
Typically, when a resort is all-inclusive, it means all meals, snacks, and beverages are included in your stay. In some instances, flights may also be included. However, not all vegan resorts are all-inclusive unless your looking atvegan retreats which almost always are all inclusive or vegan hotels for a full-on vegan food menu.
