Halal all inclusive resorts in the Maldives

Best Halal All-inclusive Resorts (Packages & Prices)

Table of contents

Many years ago, when I first stayed in an all-inclusive resort, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

I found a cheap deal online that included flights, so I booked without much research. It wasn’t until my first night that I noticed my mistake.

Little did I know the resort had a nightclub which was blasting music each night.

Although this hotel was in a Muslim country (Egypt), you still need to exercise due diligence.

Since then, learning from my mistakes, I’ve stayed in dozens of all-inclusive resorts in Europe, Turkey, the Maldives, Dubai, and more.

As a result, I’ve come to learn about the subtle differences between these hotels, their offerings, and the type of travellers they’re ideal for. Especially how to spot Muslim-friendly all-inclusive hotels.

That’s why I’ve put together this comprehensive guide on halal all-inclusive resorts. So, you can avoid these types of mistakes on your next trip.

You’ll not only learn what they are, their benefits, and how to choose the right ones, but we also cover the best destinations and packages for halal all-inclusive resorts.

What you need to know about halal all-inclusive resorts

What are halal all-inclusive resorts?

All-inclusive resorts are hotels that include all your base necessities within the pricing.

At the very least this will be accommodation, your three main meals and beverages.

At the most extensive level, it also consists of a gratuity, excursions, activities and local specialities. Many luxury resorts are located by waters and beaches so many will include watersports and snorkelling.

Now that you know what an all-inclusive resort is, it’s easier to explain the differences from its halal counterpart.

Halal resorts with an all-inclusive plan provide guests with all aspects of their holiday experience while catering to their needs. This includes halal food for breakfast, lunch & dinner and non-alcoholic beverages. 

Additionally, some may be nearby mosques or provide prayer facilities, have an alcohol-free policy, and be safe for Muslim travellers to feel comfortable. 

They are less likely to incorporate a lot of heavy party atmospheres. They will instead offer more suitable activities for guests to take part in.

Choosing an all-inclusive halal holiday can guarantee you a smooth and stress-free trip. With many of your needs met before you even arrive, you can fully enjoy the luxury without worry.

Not only will you have access to at least one main restaurant, but many resorts also boast snack venues. This can be sweet treats like ice creams for the hot weather, or fresh island fruits and savoury delicacies. So, you’re covered if you’re feeling peckish between meals.

On top of that, a lot of resorts will offer location-specific activities. Whether you want to try paddle-boarding on the beaches of the Indian Ocean or travel to local landmarks.

There is guaranteed to be an all-inclusive halal resort that can cater to how you want to spend your holiday. Making it an extremely cost-effective adventure.

What to consider when choosing an all-inclusive holiday

With all this in mind, there are some extra things to consider if an all-inclusive resort is right for you.

If you enjoy going out each day to explore your destination, this can be made slightly harder as most of these properties are isolated.

Although some are closer to towns and tourist hubs, it’s worth thinking about the priorities of your vacation.

Also, unless you are prepared to spend a little extra, your dining options are mostly confined to your resort. As you’ll have already paid for your stay, your meals are already included making it more cost-effective to dine onsite.

However, for many locations dining off-site can be pretty inexpensive, the consideration of the extra expense is up to your discretion.

Lastly, it’s important to keep in mind the type of vacation you’re looking to go on. You don’t want to choose a child-friendly resort for your honeymoon!

Why choosing the right resort is vital for Muslim travellers

Choosing the right resort is vital for any traveller, but especially for our Muslim ones.

Location can be a dealbreaker for a lot of Muslim holiday-goers, with halal-friendly environments being of the utmost importance. Having the opportunity and prayer facilities nearby can be key for a successful halal resort and holiday.

Also having clear communication for halal dining and the presence or lack thereof of alcohol can be non-negotiable for many. Some resorts will still serve alcohol for non-Muslim guests but offer a comprehensive list of halal-friendly alternatives.

Another crucial element is the level of privacy. As Muslims, we value the opportunity to relax in privacy. Resorts with villas and private pools or jacuzzis are ideal for this.

Dubai is another incredibly popular choice amongst Muslim travellers owing to its year-round great weather and luxurious hotels.

Being located in the UAE, Dubai is officially an Islamic destination. Laws and regulations surrounding food and catering are strict and thorough, meaning food by default is halal.

This provides you the opportunity to explore a whole new world of culinary experiences stress-free. Food can also become quite pricy here, so having the all-inclusive option is ideal for reducing holiday costs.

Dubai is also incredibly exciting, boasting sand dunes and desert safaris, and some of the best shopping experiences. There are also a number of beautiful beaches with warm turquoise waters and soft sand, ideal for a halal beach holiday.

Note that with many dining and activity options all around the city, most of the hotels in Dubai do not offer all-inclusive plans. However, there are a handful which do since they’re located away from the main city centre. These include Rixos The Palm, JA Beach Hotel, and Anantara World Island Dubai Hotel.

If you’re travelling with kids or the elderly and want to have a stress-free experience, then we’d recommend to go all-inclusive in Dubai. Otherwise, stick with half-board (breakfast & dinner) as you’ll have plenty of dining options in the city.

When considering halal all-inclusive resorts, Thailand wouldn’t usually come to mind, which is understandable.

That’s because the Land of Smiles is one of the world’s best food capitals. So, there are infinite options for tasty food options wherever you go. Because of this, many hotels don’t offer all-inclusive plans.

However, there are remote islands in Thailand where luxury resorts offer all-inclusive plans, like the one featured below.

With Islam being the second biggest religion in Thailand, the country offers a safe and relaxing environment to explore freely and enjoy your trip. 

Although it has a stereotype of being a party destination, this can only be found in certain locations and are easily avoidable

Bangkok offers a cosmopolitan cultural experience, with street foods and history. Whilst Phuket is a popular island getaway with beaches and vibrant markets. Many resorts are sitting along its many beaches.

So, by choosing all-inclusive, you can get exclusive experiences of Thailand’s prime spots whilst staying in stress-free luxury.
