Best Adults-Only Resorts for Couples

By The Hub team, May 13, 2018

Planning a romantic getaway without the kids? Escape to one of these adults-only beach resorts for some much-needed R&R.

Some resorts cater to families — others won’t let kids past the front entrance. If the latter is what you’re after, you’re in luck. These beach resorts pander to grown-ups and couples with days that are tantrum-free and nights that are PG-13. So grab a pair of adult beverages and dig your toes in the sand, with nary a diaper bag in sight.

Rendezvous – St. Lucia

Where’s the best place to dine at a beach resort? On the beach, obviously. Rendezvous, St. Lucia’s first couples-only resort, blessedly grasped this concept when it launched Malabar Beach Club in 2015, flaunting a barefoot-chic feel, driftwood furniture and a menu heavy on local ingredients. After dinner, stroll along 2 miles of white sand, admiring twilight views of Rat Island in the distance. Finish the night with glasses of bubbly in The Champagne Bar.

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort – Aruba

Not even a wedding can disturb your together time at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort: The 104-room boutique stopped hosting them in 2015. Expect quiet ways to connect — a classic movie in the moonlight, a couple’s photo shoot arranged by the staff. The hotel also encourages guests to get out and explore, so pack a picnic for a day of desert hiking in Arikok National Wildlife Park, complete with a stop at Huliba Cave, called the Tunnel of Love because of its heart-shaped entrance.

Couples San Souci – Jamaica

From newlyweds to veterans celebrating their silver anniversary, guests at Couples Sans Souci get excited for the Starlight Gala and Cabaret, held Friday nights on the main lawn. The weekly event features a giant buffet and live music that invariably gets partners on their feet. Late night, the dance party continues at the Au Naturel Beach (note: Clothing not optional after sunset).

Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa – Bermuda

Make like Bill and Hillary and steal away to Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa, which dates to the 1600s. Cozy spots for two abound on one of the property’s four pink-sand beaches, as well as at the main pool, renovated in 2007 to add waterfalls, tiered decks and rustling palms. To really embrace Bermuda’s buttoned-up culture, pause each day for afternoon tea.

Palm Island – St. Vincent and the Grenadines

A stay at Palm Island is like being marooned on a desert island — with room service. Hike one of the private island’s three nature trails for panoramas of the Grenadine archipelago, or sail to Mopion sandbar for beverages, snacks and sunbathing. At night, couples can’t help but swoon when they reserve a celebratory private dinner by the heart-shaped palm tree, wrapped in twinkle lights.

At Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa’s adults-only Waitui Beach Club, opened in 2015, decisions are tough: cozy up in a poolside “cocoon,” or float around together on a blow-up bar seat? Either way, guests who spring for club access enjoy an exclusive beach area, pool, swim-up bar and Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar, as well as private check-in. The club’s happy hour is extra-happy thanks to free treats and sundowner cocktails.

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Los Cabos has such a wealth of romantic hotels that each property vies to win couples with its own roster of exclusive offerings. Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort’s bid: a “Hook & Cook” interactive ceviche-making class, mixology lessons, a beach clambake, and even a rocking beach bed that comes with eight uninterrupted hours of food-and-drink service. Game, set, match.

Occidental Papagayo – Costa Rica

While on your way to the freeform pool at Occidental Papagayo, don’t be surprised if you run into a white-throated magpie jay or a band of coatis (small mammals related to the raccoon). This Pacific coast all-inclusive is a magnet for wildlife and also earns praise for its affordability — starting rates for rooms clock in at under $200 per night per couple.
