Best Beach Resorts in the World for a Fun-filled Adventure

Imagine the warm sun on your skin, the fresh, salty sea breeze, and a cool drink in your hand. Exciting and soothing at the same time, isn’t it? With many countries opening their borders up to tourists, there’s no better time than now to book the perfect beach vacation. If the beach life is what you’re after, here are 10 of the best beach resorts in the world that are THE places to be this year.

1. Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, Indonesia

Four Seasons is one of Bali’s most revered beach resorts, with 140+ five-star villas spaced out in the traditional Balinese way. It offers a traditional beachfront resort experience with all modern amenities. And the best part, it is just 20 minutes away from the airport, so no long commutes to take away from your vacation time.

2. One&Only Palmilla, San Jose del Cabo, Mexico

Established way before the now-famous Baja, One&Only Palmilla is a beautiful private hideaway for those who want a relaxing, private vacation. They have hosted many A-listers over the years, and the island resort is known for the Market restaurant, and a Jack Nicklaus golf course.

3. Shangri-La Boracay Resort, Philippines

A 15-minute speedboat ride away from Caticlan Airport, you can enjoy the luxury of residing at the only resort on the secluded island. Choose a villa, room, or suite, and you will be greeted with an idyllic ocean view and a mix of native and modern charm.

4. Lizard Island Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Twenty-four beaches and a lagoon is what sets Lizard Island apart. Located in a National park, it is only accessible via private planes. Visitors can even opt for special activities like glass-bottom paddle boats, nighttime diving, and a 24-hour tennis court.

5. Rayavadee, Krabi Marine National Park, Thailand

Twice the adventure for the price of one is what Rayavadee offers its visitors. Brave the thousand-step climb to the Tiger Cave Temple, ride an elephant in style along the lush jungle, or even go kayaking across the mangrove forests, on this island accessible only by the sea.

6. Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort, French Polynesia

View the grand sight of the famed Mount Otemanu. Choose from a garden bungalow, beach suite, or an overwater bungalow. Want an authentic Polynesian experience? Get a traditional Tahitian tattoo at the Manea Spa’s Tatua Experience.

7. Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island, Australia

Halfway between Australia and New Zealand, on the Tasman Sea, Capella Lodge is all about its picturesque location. A modern resort with chic indoor styling inspired by the local Kentia palm tree, vacationing here is nothing short of a dream.

8. Nam Hai, Hoi An, Vietnam

Inspired by the 19-century tomb of Emperor Tu Duc nearby, Nam Hai is an all-villa beach resort. Enjoy an authentic Vietnamese cooking class at the Beach restaurant, or opt for a “Follow the Chef” tour of the local food scene.

9. Hermitage Bay, Australia

Hermitage Bay is a dream vacation spot for a small and quaint little resort with beautiful sea-facing suites and villas. Visitors can enjoy a weekly outdoor cooking class or walk through the resort’s organic garden for a memorable resort retreat.

10. Mulia Resort, Bali, Indonesia

A relatively new entry to this list, the Mulia Resort in Bali is arguably one of the best on it too. Artistically decorated pools, local dance troupes that appear suddenly, and the remains of millennia-old Hindu temples on the resort grounds, are perfect for the adventure lovers among us.
