When it comes to destination events, it’s hard to beat an all-inclusive resort property. There are tons of built-in activities, food & beverage are already handled, and it’s easy to just focus on the event itself. Before starting VIBE, our founder, Valerie Bihet, spent many years as the Director of Communications for Club Med and its various properties. During that time, she helped organize and customize multiple corporate and branded events. More importantly, she also had an up-close-and-personal look at what kinds of features matter most to guests and attendees, and what it takes to make an event truly stand out as special.
For Florida, the all-inclusive offering is widely varied. You can pick an ultra-luxury option to be pampered to the fullest, a fun-filled spot in the heart of the action, or you can escape to quiet ocean shores – all with the simplicity of having meals, accommodations, and a variety of activities included in the price.
The Bungalows, Key Largo
Don’t let its name fool you, The Bungalows is seriously elevated enjoyment in the Florida Keys. Guest rooms are actually a collection of 135 private cottages with exotic outdoor showers, indoor soaking tubs, and personal patios – some with direct waterfront views. This adults-only paradise also offers 2 restaurants and 3 bars for included food & beverage, with yoga, non-motorized watersports, and pool service also complimentary.
Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa, Miami
Even though it’s just minutes from Miami International Airport, downtown, and the beaches, Pritikin’s one-week and two-week all-inclusive wellness retreats are a surprising haven in the middle of Miami. Healthy meals, snacks, personalized culinary and fitness workshops, four world-class golf courses, numerous tropical swimming pools, and a holistic spa are all part of the experience here. Ideal for executive retreats and anyone who needs some time to restore and rebalance.
Henderson Park Inn, Destin
One of the best-kept secrets in the state, the Henderson Park Inn is a charming historically inspired, adults-only all-inclusive property outfitted with all the latest modern conveniences and enjoyments. A direct beach location right on the gulf, complimentary breakfast and picnic lunch on the beach, always-available community snacks and beverages, free beach bikes, cocktails, and all-suite accommodations with just 37 total rooms – what’s not to love? Large groups should book early as Henderson Park Inn is always in demand year-round.
