Alaska's Resorts: All Inclusive Accommodation

Getting away from it all seems to be the mantra of many of us when booking a vacation, and in Alaska resorts you may find the peaceful holiday you’re looking for. Visiting an Alaska resort doesn’t necessarily mean spending all day on a riverbank chasing fish.

There is plenty of opportunity to indulge in the pastimes the state is so famous for – fishing, kayaking, wildlife watching, hiking, and dog sledding – but in some locales soaking in your surroundings will be a full time occupation.

Some Alaska resorts offer the best of the state’s more active pursuits, while others are tailored specifically towards relaxation. You’ll find the perfect places for romance – including wedding and honeymoon packages – as well as corporate packages.

What the best resorts offer

Many lodges are located in some of Alaska’s most awe inspiring settings, next to rivers and lakesides, at the foot of mountains, and in the hearts of forests. You may feel isolated, but some lodges boast all the mod cons to keep you in touch with the world in spite of the wilderness. Others embrace the remoteness and aren’t equipped with faxes, internet connections and phone lines.

Some exclusive resorts have resident chefs, designer suites and correspondingly hefty price tags. At these places there’s no chance of encountering bunk beds or buffet lines. With canopy beds, fireplaces in each room and stunning views you can relax in luxury, comfort and style.

Resorts boasting health spas and focusing on rejuvenation are booming in Alaska, with the state’s rugged vistas perfectly harmonizing with the mind, body and soul. Services offered include yoga and tai chi classes, water therapy, and therapeutic massage. There are several resorts in Alaska founded on nearby hot springs, and these allow visitors to soak in the naturally heated waters and soak up the tranquil environment.

Romance in Alaska

Alaska is an increasingly popular location for romantic vacations, as well as wedding ceremonies and the subsequent honeymoons. Some resorts are run by people recognized as wedding celebrants and willing to plan ceremonies, so tying the knot in Alaskan luxury really can be easy. It’s possible to hold the ceremony indoors, river or lakeside, and even be ferried by helicopter to tie the knot on top of glacier. Honeymoon suites in lodges can boast everything from private whirlpools to canopied beds, and everything from chocolates and champagne to balloons and bubble bath can be arranged.
