Have you ever wanted to leave everything behind and fly solo on a dream vacation? It’s becoming much easier to do just that, as a growing number of resorts are catering to party-of-one travellers. From multi-day events like Singles Week, to customized excursions and activities designed with solo travellers in mind, there’s never been a better time to hit the beach and make some new friends!
We’ve put together a list of some of the top hotels for single travellers, with options ranging from meditative wellness retreats to wild party adventures. (Tip: Most of these resorts do not charge extra for single travellers. Confirm at time of booking.)
Mention the Zoëtry brand to our Travel Agents and they will immediately light up. That’s because travel insiders know that the Zoëtry brand is synonymous with top of the line luxury. Their resorts offer services and amenities that are a notch or two (or three!) beyond what is available even at other luxury-class resorts.
For those looking to do a high-end solo getaway, we can’t recommend the Paraiso De La Bonita enough. Guests here can take advantage of Zoëtry’s renowned Endless Privileges® experience in addition to enjoying a very broad number of activities that are perfect for the solo traveller. Take part in a Temazcal ceremony, indulge in rejuvenating services at the Thalasso Center & Spa, practice yoga on the beach, or simply relax in a lounger and enjoy the soothing sound of the waves on the beach. Whatever activity you choose, you will take your “me” time to a whole new level.
