The appeal of an all-inclusive beach hotel is obvious—unlimited food, drink, activities, and relaxation, with no wallet-carrying required. Amazing all-inclusive resorts aren't hard to find in Mexico, but what if you have another exotic destination in mind? We've rounded up our favorite alternative all-inclusive experiences.

The Veranda, Turks and Caicos

Opened in February 2010, the five-star Veranda in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, is an all-inclusive resort and boutique hotel hybrid. Situated on 10 acres along postcard-perfect Grace Bay, the property includes 123 well-appointed residential units, ranging from more intimate studios to spacious three-bedroom suites. There also are more modern loft-style accommodations featuring private balconies and lavish bathrooms with deep soaking tubs.

But if you can, splurge for one of the eight freestanding beachfront cottages. Inspired by British-Caribbean architecture, each residence is surrounded by lush landscaping—for added privacy—and features direct beach access, a plunge pool, and even personal chef and butler services.

From $520 per couple per night; includes all meals, drinks, and non-motorized water sports rentals
