No kids, just cocktails, luxury and gorgeous hotels
Pirates, getting away to a luxurious, pampering hotel somewhere hot and beautiful is sometimes made all the better when it's an adult only experience.
Which is why we've done you a favour, and selected a bunch of resorts that most people would chew their own arm off to enjoy a stay at. From the volcanic island vibes of Lanzarote to the Mediterranean marvel of Crete, these are some of our favourite adult-only hotels.
The icing on the cake? Each of the resorts are available at a great price, so you can enjoy a stay for less.
Modern, slick and located right on the beach, adults only Barcelo Teguise Beach is that slice of indulgence you've been craving. Spas, bars and infinity pools - this place has it all.
Situated on the volcanic island of Lanzarote, with its whitewashed houses and heavenly beaches, this 4* hotel is ideal for a romantic break.
Most of the rooms come complete with their own hot tub on the balcony, for that added sparkle. Prices in May are the best we've seen at £626*pp for a week stay + flights.
5* all-inclusive resort Be Live Collection Marrakech is incredibly well reviewed 4.5/5 on Tripadvisor and close enough to Marrakech, so you can pop there for dinner, if you can bear to leave the hotel.
There's a lush outdoor swimming pool, three restaurants, a café and a lobby lounge. Yes, there is a bar by the swimming pool and yes, we do recommend frequenting it if you get a bit parched from all the sunbathing. Right now you can book for a great £536*pp for a week in November with flights.
This one is a bit special. 5*, naturally, the Stella Island Luxury Resort & Spa in Crete is a place we've been dreaming of visiting. Styled like a Maldives resort, the rooms are overwater, dotted around a unique lagoon-style swimming pool.
The onsite spa helps to soften the tension of daily life with saunas, hot tubs and a treatment menu that reads like our Christmas wish list. You can choose to stay all-inclusive too, dining at the onsite restaurants for that ultimate lazy holiday feel. Alternatively, the bars, restaurants and culture of the capital of Crete, Heraklion, are only a taxi ride away.
If you're in the middle of your hedonistic heyday, far be it from us to slow you down. Get into the thick of the action with this adult only stay at Ibiza Rocks: one of the island's top clubbing resorts. The resort is also walking distance from the beach bars and restaurants of the famous Sunset Strip.
Non-stop day and night events, exclusive pool parties and live DJ sets. If that sounds up you alley this might be the place for you. All the action is centred around the two swimming pools, where you can enjoy chilled poolside sessions, huge headline sets from DJs and an incredible sound system. Heading out just after the summer rush can save you nearly half the price.
Go last-minute in April for three nights from £106*pp including flights.
This beachfront Tenerife gem really has the wow factor. Iberostar Grand el Mirador is a 5-star, adult-only resort, built in a grand colonial style.
The resort is found in Costa Adeje, on the south-west coast of Tenerife and is LOVED by guests with an impressive 5/5 on Tripadvisor and nearly 3,000 reviews.
The hotel has an enviable location just a moment from Playa del Duque, one of Tenerife's best beaches, which is probably why guests love it here.
Weather is great all year round in Tenerife, but the heated freshwater pool that surrounds the building means you can always enjoy a dip in complete comfort.
We're not going to lie, a stay here ain't cheap. But considering everything you get at this 5-star resort, the prices in June 2023, just before the summer rush are the best you'll find all year, so lock in your indulgent, kid-free escape now!
The 4-star adult-only Meraki Resort in Hurghada is easily one of the coolest in Egypt. The resort has three nightclubs on site, and heaps of Bohemian-style activities and relaxation areas to relax in.
The resort has seven à la carte restaurants, six bars and two waterslides: because slides are for adults too, ok!
The best prices we've seen are in January 2024, but they have great prices from November onwards.
