After the past year, we all deserve a vacation. Things are starting to open back up, people are getting vaccinated, and traveling is looking more and more appealing. Some are still hesitant to travel for safety and financial reasons, but luckily, an all-inclusive vacation offers the perfect solution.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, all-inclusive resorts around the world had a consistent occupancy rate of about 70-percent. In 2020, those numbers dropped to around 35-percent, according to a market data and analytics firm, STR. Now these resorts, like many vacation properties, are looking to make a big comeback. These resorts and brands have risen to the challenge to increase health and safety measures to make guests feel comfortable.
Part of what makes all-inclusive resorts unique is that they encompass a full vacation experience within the set grounds. This appeals especially to cautious travelers, ensuring they don’t need to leave the safe parimenters of the resort to enjoy a wealth of amenities and activities.
These resorts are generally found in tropical destinations with long sandy beaches, plenty of open-air, and a safe and clean environment to eat, play, and relax in. An all-inclusive vacation provides travelers with a controlled space that is completely stress free, which is needed now more than ever.
The all-inclusive packages eliminates the need to plan and gives you more time to just enjoy the experience. They are also incredibly budget friendly, as you can pay up front and then indulge to your heart’s content. These resorts are some of the most popular for an unforgettable all-inclusive vacation experience.
