The Top 5 LGBTQ-Friendly All-Inclusive Resorts

Updated: May 10

The best all-inclusive resorts in the world are truly magical places. They combine the best of luxury and comfort with incredible service from friendly staff members who want to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or an adventure with friends, you'll find plenty of activities to enjoy at an all-inclusive resort, no matter what type of vacationer you are!

While there are many all-inclusive resorts that welcome the LGBTQ community, there are some that go above and beyond to ensure that you feel comfortable and safe. A great way to find LGBTQ safe accommodations is to reference the IGLTA's (International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association) database. The IGLTA is the world's leading network of LGBTQ+ welcoming tourism businesses, and has been leading the charge for equality and safety within LGBTQ+ tourism industry since 1983. IGLTA's members include LGBTQ+ friendly accommodations, transport, destinations, service providers, travel agents, tour operators, events and travel media located in over 80 countries.

With the help of the IGLTA, we've compiled a list of our favorite LGBTQ-friendly resorts around the world.

NOTE: Please always be safe while traveling, learn social customs, and check for more details on LGBTQ+ safety before you leave home.
