Ever feel so stressed at the office or in your personal life that you want to book a last-minute getaway ASAP? Planning and reserving all the lodging, food and activities for a vacation is often a monumental undertaking that can suck the fun out of even a 鈥檙ound-the-world trip.


Enter the all-inclusive resort. While the breed is typically known for mediocre food and drinks and being confined to a single property, there are actually other types of all-inclusives that aren鈥檛 just 鈥渇ly-and-flops.鈥 If you鈥檙e an adventurer, fitness fanatic or just looking for something totally different, check out one of these properties the next time you want a stress-free, everything-taken-care-of vacay.


1. New Life Hiking Spa: If your New Year鈥檚 resolution is to get out into the fresh air, you鈥檒l want to plan ahead for New Life in Vermont. They鈥檙e only open for 20 weeks in the summer, and they have all levels of hiking (not just totally extreme stuff). There鈥檚 also a wellness component to the destination 鈥 each package comes with your choice of spa service, three meals a day and a guided hiking program. The cost comes in pretty reasonably at under $300 a day (remember, that鈥檚 for everything), and the resort recommends a three-day experience to get the most out of it.

2. Little Saint Simons Island: Nature fiends, this one is definitely for you. If you鈥檝e always dreamed of seeing loggerhead turtles hatch, love marshland, fishing and birding or just enjoy nature and conservation in general, start packing for Little Saint Simons. This coastal island off the state of Georgia has it all, including a team of naturalists to answer all your questions. The island is virtually undeveloped and limited to a small number of guests at a time, making it feel like you鈥檝e stumbled upon your own private low-country escape. Your fee gets you boat transfers on and off the island, outdoor equipment, food and beverages and time with the nature conservationists. (Photo via Little Saint Simons Island)


3. Tanque Verde Ranch: If you want a Southwestern-ranch-style experience, head to Tanque Verde in Tucson, Arizona. Adobe-style lodgings face the desert and mountains, affording insane views of the surrounding area. The activities schedule is long and extensive, offering horseback riding, mountain biking, nature walks, tennis clinics and even fishing and watercolor workshops. If you want to escape and commune with nature but still be active, head here. For about $400 a night, you can get 鈥3 Squares鈥 (that鈥檚 three square meals), lodging and activities; there鈥檚 an 脿 la carte option as well, if you鈥檇 rather pick and choose your meals and activities.

4. Ian Anderson鈥檚 Cave Branch: If your attitude is #ZikaWho?, head to Belize in Central America for total jungle immersion at Cave Branch. You can explore Belize鈥檚 natural caves, but you could also hit the jungle, go snorkeling and diving (Belize has some of the best reefs in the world), horseback ride and even visit the nearby Mayan ruins. Oh, and there are a ton of ziplining tours to book too. The minimum two-day, three-night package starts at under $300 per night per person, but that鈥檚 only enough time to scratch the surface in this diverse and friendly country. Bonus for those who crave a vacay south of the border but don鈥檛 habla Espa帽ol 鈥 English is the official national language. (Photo via Ian Anderson鈥檚 Cave Branch)


5. Blackberry Farm: If a splurge trip is in your future, head to Blackberry Farm in the foothills of Tennessee鈥檚 Great Smoky Mountains to gather crazy amazing Instagram posts from this celebrity-favorite getaway. You can shoot skeet, attend culinary tastings, take wellness classes like yoga and even sign yourself up to adopt one of their adorable Lagotto Romagnolo (AKA 鈥渢ruffle dog鈥) puppies when one comes available. (FYI, there鈥檚 a major waiting list!) Features include a working farm, cheesemaker, butcher, brewery and master gardener. Blackberry Farm should be on any farm-to-table foodie鈥檚 bucket list for sure 鈥 the Instagram account alone will sell you. (Photo via Blackberry Farm)


6. Travaasa Hana: If Maui鈥檚 been on your list for a while, we鈥檙e not surprised 鈥 it鈥檚 one of the most beautiful islands in the world. And nothing is prettier on Maui than the winding, lush 鈥淩oad to Hana.鈥 At the end of the Road (which can easily take a full day to travel, thanks to pit stops to get fresh fruit and smoothies, see waterfalls, go swimming and lay on black-sand beaches) is the teeny-tiny town of Hana, where the Travaasa Hana is at the center of it all 鈥 literally. An old family hotel that still retains that intimate feel, it鈥檚 smack-dab in the middle of the town. (Oprah is rumored to have land next to the property.) Restaurant options are limited in Hana, so all-inclusive is the way to go: You would have eaten every meal here anyway. (Photo via Travaasa Hana)


7. Mohonk Mountain House: If it鈥檚 a slice of Americana you鈥檙e after, look no further than Mohonk Mountain House in upstate New York. Accommodations in their stately lakefront lodge, three meals a day, afternoon tea and most classic resort activities on their 40,000 acres (such as tennis, swimming, biking, boating) are included in the cost, and more (but no TVs!). The property dates to the late 1800s and has hosted esteemed New Yorkers such as the Carnegies, Rockefellers and five US Presidents. (Photo via Mohonk Mountain House)
