We all love our kids. We all do as much as we can for our kids, but at some point it’s time to treat ourselves, get away from our kids, rewind, recharge and relax. When we get that opportunity, the last thing we want is to be at a location with other people’s kids! Here are 5 of the best kid-free spots to take that vacation!
Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa – Ocho Rios, Jamaica
No one under the age of 18 is allowed! Sitting quietly amid tropical gardens alongside a white-sand beach, Jewel Dunn‘s all-inclusive haven boasts six bars, six restaurants, two pools and a spa. If you plan to spend your vacation drinking pool or beach side, the all-inclusive rates include premium top-shelf liquor. Part of the Hilton properties, this resort offers many on-site activities, and is convenient to attractions on the northern coast of Jamaica and also offers complimentary shuttle to and from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay.
The Excellence at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
18 years and older are the only age groups you will find at this swank, all-suite, all-inclusive resort overlooking the Caribbean and white-sand beach. The Excellence offers two massive pools that wind through the colonial-style grounds, and is also home to nine restaurants, ten bars and a spa. For those seeking a little more adventure, activities such as horseback riding, SCUBA diving and archery are available.
Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts – Aruba
This adults-only oasis resides on the soft white sands of Eagle Beach. A contrast to the bigger chains that dominate Aruba’s beaches, Bucuti & Tara is an intimate resort of 104 rooms that caters to couples and solo travelers with a sophisticated, low-key vibe. The resort does not allow groups or weddings, and doesn’t offer a ton of “activities” since the focus is on tranquility. The perfect location for that relax and recharge vacation. The resort offers world class dining and a private romantic dinner served by moonlight on the beach will have anyone feeling relaxed.
The House by Elegant Hotels – Barbados
This is a beautiful and chic resort that is ideal for couples and friend getaways. It is tucked into the ritzy west coast of Barbados. The House offers intimate grounds boasting ponds, gardens and waterfalls. Champagne breakfast, private dining and afternoon tea will leave you fully relaxed and just a little pit spoiled! With only 34 rooms, it often feels like you have the place to yourself. A complimentary “jet lag revival” massage upon arrival will start your vacation off on the right foot for sure.
