Howie's Homestay - Chiang Mai, Thailand http://www.howieshomestay.com At Howie's Homestay in Chiang Mai, guests check into a house that has been featured in Architectural Digest - with exquisite gardens and antique-filled rooms. The owners, an American expat and his Thai wife, tailor the experience to your interests based on their insider knowledge - taking you on elephant treks, temple visits and shopping expeditions or leaving you to lounge by the pool as you wish. Only one group, family or couple can book at a time, so the house is truly a luxury hideout of your own in Southeast Asia.

ME Cancun - Cancun, Mexico http://www.melia.com/en/hotels/mexico/cancun/me-cancun-complete-me-all-inclusive/index.html ME Cancun is an adult-oriented luxury resort that only allows guests to book accommodations as a 'complete experience' package.

All food, drinks, entertainment and activities are included.

Mii amo Spa - Sedona, Arizona http://www.miiamo.com This American spa can be better described as a 16-suite wellness resort because you can pursue whatever kind of 'well-balance' you are looking for - whether it's focused on losing weight, getting fit, reducing stress, reconnecting with nature, bonding with friends or kick-starting a healthier lifestyle. The three-, four- and seven-day programs include such group classes as cooking, tennis and yoga, as well as personalized services including facials, massages and psychic healing. If you get hooked on the organic cuisine, you can take the recipes home.

Nizuc Resort and Spa - Cancun, Mexico http://www.nizuc.com/ Nizuc Resort is one of the most luxurious resorts in Cancun since it opened in September 2013. There are 274 rooms, suites and villas - many of which come equipped with private infinity pools.

The resort, tucked within lush foliage along a stretch of mangroves and beach, offers a terrific all-inclusive Endless Indulgence package.

Travaasa Hana - Maui, Hawaii http://www.travaasa.com/hana/ It's not common to find all-inclusive hotels in Hawaii. Acquired by new owners in 2011, Travaasa became the first resort in Maui to offer an all-inclusive package, which includes fitness classes. This hotel has rustic cottages (no TV's or clocks) and a spa with an outdoor lava-rock whirlpool. In addition to its cool, retro Hawaii d�cor, Travaasa provides unique experiences for its guest.
