Most luxurious Hyatt all-inclusive resorts in the world – The Points Guy

The all-inclusive resort space can be a little confusing, as the brands aren’t always as well known as, say, a Hyatt Regency or Park Hyatt.
We’re here to change that with this collection of our favorite Hyatt all-inclusive resorts.
The company’s all-inclusive resort footprint grew exponentially in recent years thanks to a $2.7 billion acquisition of Apple Leisure Group, the owner of brands like Secrets and Dreams. However, Hyatt also has all-inclusive resort options from before this takeover, with offerings like the Alila Ventana Big Sur, the Ziva and Zilara brands and even Park Hyatt’s posh outpost in the Maldives.
Ready to pack your bags? We sure are.

Consider Alila Ventana Big Sur the grande dame of Hyatt resorts (and points redemptions) in the U.S.
Perched off the Pacific Coast Highway about a half-hour south of San Francisco, the West Coast resort is the pinnacle of all-inclusive luxury travel with a dose of seclusion. Alila Ventana Big Sur only features 59 guest rooms and suites, as well as 15 tented cabins spread out across 150 acres.
Travelers may not typically associate Hyatt’s Alila brand with "all-inclusive" like you would with Zilara or Secrets. However, the California resort includes all meals and snacks with a nightly room rate. Alcoholic beverages are sold separately.
The vibe is glitzy glamping, with a lot of wood paneling and working fireplaces in guest rooms and suites. Leather chairs and earth tones complement the California redwood forest outside.
Head to The Sur House, Alila Ventana Big Sur’s main restaurant, for breakfast and dinner with a Pacific Ocean view and locally sourced ingredients. Lunch can be delivered poolside to your chaise lounge. Spa Alila is a must-splurge, with alfresco treatments offered from outdoor cabanas — clarify and cleanse with an 80-minute facial or unwind in a copper soaking tub with an impeccable view of the redwoods beyond. The great outdoors were never so decadent.
Rates start at $1,969 or 35,000 World of Hyatt points per night.

This luxe wellness retreat exudes a contemporary atmosphere in Massachusetts’ otherwise rustic, woodsy Berkshires region. Miraval Berkshires is a magnet for city dwellers (it’s driveable from New York City and Boston) looking for a little R&R — but perhaps without all the dietary (and drinking) limitations of other wellness retreats in the area. Keep in mind: While alcohol is served at Miraval, it is not included in your nightly rate like all other food and drinks.
Sleek, clean and bright designs dominate throughout the resort, including the modern Carriage House suites and Cottages. However, the 10 recently renovated rooms and suites found in the Wyndhurst Mansion are a worthy splurge. Named for legendary artists and prominent families of the Gilded Age, suites include the Vanderbilt Suite (the largest, as you might expect) and the cozier Wharton and Hawthorne rooms — all include modern fixtures and furnishings and upgraded bathrooms. Larger rooms and suites include decorative fireplaces, which are great for unwinding and reflecting following a day of treatments.
Speaking of treatments, the Life in Balance Spa at Miraval Berkshires is a major draw and, at 29,000 square feet, a focal point of the entire resort. We’re fans of the 80-minute Manuka Honey Quench body treatment to give the skin some ultraluxurious moisturization and glow.
TPG loved the food and beverage offerings at Miraval when we checked in. 1894 Restaurant, named for the year Wyndhurst Mansion wrapped construction, is the resort’s fine dining option serving a four-course tasting menu that features scrumptious offerings like Maine lobster risotto and Hudson Valley duck.
Rates start at $804 or 40,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Fun in the sun is easy to access at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, on the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo but only a 20-minute drive from Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) in Mexico.
While Ziva is the family-friendly option of Hyatt’s Ziva and Zilara all-inclusive brand siblings, TPG found the property to have plenty of options for visitors of all ages (including those who are looking for a little more seclusion away from children).
Guest rooms and suites fit the Baja California feel with terracotta tiles, light decor and dark wood accents. Ocean views are a must, and the Master Suite tier of rooms affords extra space as well as Hyatt club-level amenities.
On the food front, TPG recommends the poolside bars, which serve up delicious fish tacos and ceviche with service that is both friendly and fast. Bon Vivant, the resort’s French restaurant, is another winner with salad nicoise and duck breast — and it's worth splurging on the wine list that isn’t part of the all-inclusive offering.
Rates start at $320 or 25,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Family-friendly Cancun might not be as stunning as Hyatt Ziva Cancun, an all-inclusive resort with spectacular views and sprawling beaches in the heart of Cancun. Don’t miss the expansive pool deck with chaise lounges, swim-up bars and hot tubs.
TPG favors rooms in the Ziva’s 17-floor Club Tower, which includes the hotel’s guest rooms and suites with Hyatt Ziva Club access. Ziva Club access includes things like private check-in and checkout and personalized concierge services. While the resort is family-friendly, couples will likely want to look into a stay in the adults-only Turquoize Tower. The Turquoize building includes rooms and suites with extras like private infinity pools or hot tubs.
The dining lineup is extensive, to put it mildly. A few of our favorites include El Mercado, Hyatt Ziva Cancun’s all-day buffet, and Pasteles, a dessert parlor to satisfy the sweetest of sweet teeth. Food carts even regularly circle the pool, so if you leave here hungry, it’s your own fault. The alcohol selection is also surprisingly highbrow for an all-inclusive resort and features spirits like Johnnie Walker Black whisky, Belvedere vodka and Don Julio tequila.
Rates start at $460 or 35,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Hyatt made a major push into all-inclusive resorts in recent years, but one of TPG’s favorites has been around since the more recent expansion. Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall manages to feel secluded yet is mere minutes from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ).
This adults-only resort features attentive service, a slew of amenities and a litany of dining options that makes this one of TPG’s favorite all-inclusive resorts. Guest rooms and suites offer airy, light environs perfect for a seaside vacation — we particularly love the swim-up suites. The Grand Butler Suite with personalized butler service is an ideal splurge for those looking for particularly attentive care.
On the activity front, spend time ranging from a plunge in the resort’s three-level pool to getting adventurous with surfing on Montego Bay. Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall’s spa features treatment rooms and a beachside cabana to indulge in a massage on the waterfront. Who doesn’t love getting rid of knots with crashing waves serenading you?
Dining options can satisfy a wide variety of taste buds. The resort’s upscale French restaurant, Petit Pariz, is ideal for a romantic date night, while Jamaican RootZ by HoriZons is great for all-day alfresco dining with a waterfront view.
Rates start at $492 or 25,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
If you’re a little confused by the various all-inclusive brands under the Hyatt umbrella these days, have no fear. Zoetry is an all-inclusive brand targeting “holistic experiences” with “exceptional service.” Basically, you will almost certainly leave feeling pampered and more in tune with your wellness-oriented self.
Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya is one of our favorite ways to do just that. The Riviera Maya resort features a remarkable stretch of beach and attentive service, luxe accommodations and dining options galore. Tranquility is the name of the game here: less bottomless-well vodka and disco and more top-shelf liquor and soothing guitar music to ocean sounds.
Rooms and suites are sprawling. The resort's smallest room is 800 square feet (essentially, the size of a two-bedroom apartment). Oceanfront views are a mainstay, as well as indoor-outdoor layouts, private balconies and decor featuring local art.
On the dining front, be sure to indulge in the fresh grilled seafood with waterfront views at El Chiringuito or the top-rated international cuisine at La Canoa, which is also known for its wine list (available at an added cost beyond the all-inclusive rate).
Of course, the holistic brand standard that Zoetry is known for, the Thalasso Center & Spa, is the draw here. Signature offerings include a Temazcal ancestral treatment to cleanse mind, body and soul, and a simpler Mayan massage encompassing cup treatment and reflexology.
Rates start at $396 or 25,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Sure, the white sandy beaches and swim-up bars are love at first sight for a place like Secrets Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa. But shouldn’t your all-inclusive resort offer so much more? Secrets, an adults-only all-inclusive resort brand, certainly delivers in Cancun.
This all-suite resort manages to feel a little more secluded and cozy than you’d expect from an all-inclusive resort. Secrets Riviera Cancun guest rooms include private balconies and terraces with either hot tubs or swim-out access.
Activities abound, with kayaking, parasailing, windsurfing and snorkeling as just a few select offerings on the outdoor lineup. Be sure to refuel at the wide array of restaurant offerings, including Picante, the resort’s gourmet Mexican restaurant, and Coquette, an a la carte French restaurant.
Rates start at $485 or 25,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
All-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic might conjure images of the loud spring break crowd, but that’s not exactly the vibe at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa.
The sprawling property is a favorite for its expansive suites and Xhale Club, a VIP offering with more personalized service for those staying in this category of suites. All suites feature balconies with private hot tubs, while some feature swim-up pool access from their terraces.
The restaurant lineup is extensive, with 11 restaurants and eight bars to indulge in. The Barefoot Grill serves beachside staples like burgers and grilled fish under the sun, while the Mediterranean-influenced Kibbeh restaurant is perfect for date night.
Carve out some me-time at the Relax Spa by Pevonia — the Sun Lover’s Facial is a must after a busy day lounging by the pool.
Rates start at $247 or 17,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Dreams is the more family-oriented of the all-inclusive brands Hyatt acquired amid the Apple Leisure Group takeover. Dreams Dominicus La Romana is a traveler favorite thanks to its gorgeous beach location and plenty of poolside and waterfront chaise lounges. (We aren’t saying you won’t compete to nab a chair each day, but at least there are plenty from which to pick.)
When we say there’s something for everyone here, we mean it: Rooms and suites range from spacious garden-view rooms with private balconies, canopy beds and elegant bathrooms to expansive three-bedroom suites geared toward families. There are also swim-up suites and even a honeymoon suite with a private hot tub and hammock.
Both buffets win out at Dreams: There are lively cooking displays at World Cafe, and the club level-only Flying Fish buffet is a more exclusive all-you-can-eat feast. Dance the night away at Desires, the resort’s lounge and nightclub.
Rates start at $343 or 17,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Sunscape Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino is a swimmers delight thanks to its beach with protected waters for swimming and snorkeling. That’s only the beginning of the fun at this kid-friendly, all-inclusive resort. Paddleboarding and diving with the family or trying your hand with Lady Luck at the on-site casino are all part of a normal day here.
Guest rooms and suites are affordable and come with a garden view or a Caribbean Sea view (we prefer the latter). Consider upgrading to the resort’s Sun Club for nicer suites, lounge access and more personalized service.
Bluewater Grill, the resort’s international restaurant, is an ideal spot for dinner with views of the sea. Head to Oceana Restaurant for more Curacao flavors with your seafood.
Unwind with a treatment at the Sunscape Spa by Pevonia, which offers aromatherapeutic salt scrubs and a variety of massage options amid a wide-ranging treatment menu.
Rates start at $365 or 17,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Pool lovers, rejoice. Dreams Onyx Resort & Spa has plenty of options for you — five pools, to be exact.
There are two infinity pools and even a saltwater kids pool to keep the little ones busy. Don’t miss out on the resort’s expansive beach, an ideal place to read a book on the chaise lounge under a thatched umbrella — who doesn’t love finishing a juicy chapter amid a sea breeze?
The resort has a wide range of room and suite options, but all accommodations feature a hot tub on a private terrace or balcony and complimentary minibar as part of the all-inclusive rate. Consider a splurge to a nicer pool or ocean-view junior suite, or go the extra mile with an upgrade to the Preferred Club. This level of suites includes a personal concierge, lounge access and Preferred Club-only pools, bars and restaurants.
Varied activities are at guests’ fingertips here, including a free introductory scuba lesson, kids and teens clubs and several restaurants. Mercure is a delicious French brasserie. SandBar is our favorite spot for a margarita on the beach.
Rates start at $289 or 17,000 World of Hyatt points per night.

Go west, young man — and indulge in one luxurious spa.
Miraval Arizona brings luxe wellness accommodations to the desert and does it with flying colors. This TPG favorite will have you feeling like a celebrity in no time from all the scrumptious dining, pampering, treatments and activities.
Guest rooms and suites deliver Wild West chic with a clean design and fluffy beds. (Go ahead, jump on it — we won’t tell.) Larger rooms include private patios or outdoor showers and fire pits. Splurge more and enjoy suites with crackling fireplaces and views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The ultimate indulgence is Miraval’s seven villas (ideal for families or larger groups) and retreats for better indoor-outdoor flow (dine under the stars or enjoy an indoor-to-outdoor shower — why choose?).
Miraval Arizona’s Life in Balance Spa is a draw for its decadent treatments, like a 50-minute Cara Vida facial (a resort exclusive) that features cold-pressed chia seeds and local Arizona honey. Check out the Cactus Flower Restaurant, the resort’s main dining spot, for specials like squash curry and a vegan chorizo tostada. For carnivores, the Coyote Moon Burger is also scrumptious.
Rates start at $874 or 40,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Travelers craving an adults-only, all-inclusive resort experience won’t be disappointed in the least with a stay at Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana, as TPG discovered on a recent trip to the Dominican Republic.
We found it to be a little more highbrow than the typical all-inclusive experience, and we’re not complaining. The contemporary design, massive pools and sprawling beach are all selling points. Who doesn’t love to sip a morning mimosa amid well-manicured greenery and stone walkways heading to the turquoise sea? Luxury and all-inclusive aren’t mutually exclusive.
Rooms and suites are expansive, bright and (whether you like it or not) feature open rainfall showers. Swim-up and oceanfront suites add a little more connected action to your fun-in-the-sun getaway while the largest Presidential and Club Ocean View Master suites include huge balconies with waterfront views and entertaining spaces. Don’t forget the free minibar with snacks and sips like Presidente beers and Pringles.
On the restaurant front, Shutters Beachside serves breakfast (grab your morning egg frittata and crabcake and get a head start on claiming your chaise lounge for the day). Brando’s is the spot for an over-the-top dinner. Tahitian cru ceviche and grilled shrimp in a coconut and vanilla sauce received top marks after our dinner.
Poolside lounging might be the easiest way to spend time at Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana, but you can check out other activities like aqua-cycling and trying out Canapolis Water Park at the neighboring, family-friendly Hyatt Ziva property (accessible to all Zilara guests). A more relaxing endeavor comes at the Larimar Spa, featuring marquee treatments like a 90-minute body wrap that uses Dominican noni fruit.
Rates start at $444 or 35,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Consider Secrets Moxche Playa del Carmen Hyatt’s latest show pony for all-inclusive resorts. The company CEO name-checked it in a recent earnings call and even hosted a companywide investor event there this spring to show off the recently opened resort — including the ultraluxury Secrets Impression Moxche resort-within-a-resort.
Secrets Moxche is known for its luxurious atmosphere, natural decor and impressive oceanfront views. The Secrets Impression resort within the overall Secrets property indulges guests with fresh seafood served beachside and complimentary poolside beds (complete with a curtain for when you need privacy … either from the sun or other guests).
The main resort features large guest rooms and suites with private terraces and balconies, contemporary furniture, and indoor-outdoor layouts fit for travelers looking to sunbathe or read inside to the tune of crashing waves outdoors.
On the pool front, Secrets offers a variety of options, like a lagoon pool complete with a sandy beach and The Cove beach bar. Other options include more private cenote-style pools and the main swimming area, complete with a swim-up bar you might expect from an all-inclusive resort.
Dining ranges from the Market Cafe buffet or room service to start the day to Suki, the resort’s sushi and teppanyaki restaurant.
Rates start at $538 or 35,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
The Maldives conjures images of a bucket list trip, but the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is perhaps one of the most bucket list-iest of bucket list resorts on the island nation.
The newest and biggest splurge at the resort is the recently added three-bedroom Overwater Reef Residence, which spans nearly 10,000 square feet and includes views of the Indian Ocean and a private infinity pool. Your private chef and, yes, the resort’s Vidhun Spa will come to you for any treatments you might desire (a massage feels all the more indulgent from your private terrace, no?).
Other accommodations vary from overwater bungalows to more woodsy offerings on the Park Hyatt’s island. It goes without saying: The pool area and beach both provide ample opportunities to make the Instagram and TikTok followers jealous, TPG noted when we checked in.
While Park Hyatt isn’t traditionally a Hyatt brand associated with the all-inclusive resort sector, we’re including it here because the resort does offer an all-inclusive package that includes all meals and select alcoholic beverages.
All-inclusive rates start at $1,290 per night.
Head to the Texas Hill Country for a little R&R with a side of luxury at Miraval Austin.
The Hyatt resort brand, known for all things wellness, beckons travelers with its stunning property with views of Lake Travis and the surrounding Texas hills. Tranquility is the name of the game here, TPG discovered when we checked in. From meditation channels on the guest room televisions to a Himalayan singing bowl and Miraval Zen-branded amenities, the odds are probably low that you'll leave here stressed.
Miraval Austin is popular, so book treatments and fitness classes well ahead of check-in, as those can fill up quickly and in advance. Can’t make it into the stress solutions class? Fear not. There are plenty of other offerings like archery, cooking classes and "Tex Zen" yoga. Get it? Whoever said you couldn’t be funny and health-conscious is sorely mistaken.
The Miraval Life in Balance Spa is a major draw for guests looking to indulge in treatments ranging from 100-minute body renewal rituals (complete with ginger grass and bamboo scrubs and cherry-blossom rice buffing) to an 80-minute Moroccan Coffee Blossom pedicure.
Gourmet lovers will be ready to book their next stay after a visit to Hilltop Crossings, the resort’s main restaurant featuring a mix of local ingredients and wellness-geared dishes — from sirloin raised at Texas’ own 44 Farms to hempseed meatballs.
After a busy day of activities, treatments and treats, head back to your room and soak all the Texas Hill Country glory in from the privacy of your own balcony. This is a rejuvenating resort at its finest.
Rates start at $709 or 40,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
