Luxury Resorts for Adults
Luxury Resorts for Adults: Recommended Hotels with ‘No Children’ Policies, for Quiet Vacations
Sometimes, children are the last thing travellers want to see, or hear, on vacation; here are five kid-free resorts, for anything like romantic honeymoon getaways, couples away-from-the-kids breaks, or anniversaries.
Sometimes the best kind of luxury vacation is the kind where the children get left at relative’s houses, and exhausted parents can take an child-free trip. The full-on pampering, the indulgence of sleeping late, and the extra glass or two of wine at dinner, go a long way towards recuperating from life’s stresses; and that is a lot of what a luxury vacation is about. Whether you prefer the UK, or a resort in Spain, it pays to research the options. Take a look at some of my top picks for adults-only resorts below.
5 ADULTS-ONLY LUXURY RESORTS:
Auberge du Soleil, California
This is one of the best luxury resorts in Napa Valley, and one of the most exclusive in the US as well. Napa Valley is well known for high-end culinary vacations and luxury romantic getaways: Leave the children at home, and take an adult vacation here. Auberge du Soleil overlooks the Valley, close enough to the vineyards for wine tasting, but enough removed for tranquility. There is a destination restaurant on the property; why leave? and only 50 rooms and suites. It is also a member of the exclusive 5-star Alliance: No children under 16 years old.
Gaia Hotel, Costa Rica
Costa Rica usually attracts eco-travel fans, and Gaia Hotel and Reserve is no exception: Add the high-end amenities of a 5-star luxury resort, and the quiet ambiance of ‘No Children Allowed’ lodging, and this Costa Rica vacation is perfect. While there are all the modern conveniences like 24-hour room service and an on-site spa, the Gaia Reserve site makes this hotel great for adults seeking an easy, green, vacation. The eco-friendly environment is not exclusive to the luxury accommodations at Gaia Hotel in Costa Rica. No children under 16 years old.
Galley Bay, Antigua
Another luxury resort for adults; Galley Bay is recommended for its relaxed Caribbean ambiance. It is also an all-inclusive resort, so no-one has to worry about being presented with a long bill at the end of their romantic adult vacation. Galley Bay deserves recognition for its privacy, easy beach access from all guest rooms, and the lush tropical gardens on the property. TripAdvisor readers named Galley Bay one of the Top 10 Best Resorts for Romance in the Caribbean. No children under 16 years old.
Hotel Hana Maui, Hawaii
Hawaii, and Maui in particular, is a top-rated family vacation destination: There are plenty of recommended luxury hotels here. Honeymooners, retirees, and anyone else who just doesn’t want to hear screaming children on vacation need not fret, though; Hotel Hana Maui is the perfect Hawaiian vacation spot for a quiet, private, romantic getaway. The Hana area of Maui is much less developed than the popular family vacation resort areas, and Hotel Hana Maui is a AAA Four Diamond rated resort. No children under 18 years old.
Mystique, Santorini, Greece
This may be the most elite, luxurious, child-free resort on the list. On the cliffs of Oia, with just 18 suites and villas; the view of the Aegean Calgera underlines the fact of being in Greece. The ‘Secret’ wine cave stores bottles of wine found nowhere else. The Charisma Restaurant is available only to guests of the hotel; so no children accompanying their parents from some other hotel either. The infinity pool provides the apex of a luxury romantic getaway. No children under 14 years old.
