What Exactly Is an All-Inclusive Resort?


There are some all-inclusive resorts in the Atlanta, GA, area in addition to those that offer unlimited golf packages but wouldn’t be considered an all-inclusive resort. This doesn’t mean that these special packages aren’t as attractive as the traditional all-inclusive resort, but it does bring up the question as to what exactly is an all-inclusive resort. There are probably as many people who hate the concept as those who love it, so it’s important to understand what exactly an all-inclusive resort is. No doubt the term has become a bit confusing, even misleading, since it raises the questions as to whether all costs are included and whether it’s comparable to what one would pay for a so-called a la carte vacation.

First, a Little History

Club Med claims to have invented the all-inclusive package as far back as the early 1950s. However, a case can be made that the concept was first introduced in 1930s Britain at large holiday camps, founded by Billy Butlins, to provide ordinary British families an affordable vacation. The idea was then improved upon by Gérard Blitz, a previous Belgian water polo titleholder. In 1950 he opened an affordable summer location on the island of Majorca in the Mediterranean off the coast of Spain, where vacationers stayed in tents.

It wasn’t until a few years later in 1954 that he built the first Club Med in the small Italian town of Palinuro in the Province of Salerno, Italy. Members of this early Club Med stayed in straw huts without lighting on a beachfront and used common bathing facilities. This was the first time, that this new idea would be tried at a beach resort. The first group of vacationers who took to this idea were primarily single people who were looking for something different and for a place where they could meet other similar individuals.

By the late 70s Club Med was still pretty much the only game in town other than a few cruise ship lines that began to flirt with the idea. Then in 1976, John Issa, a 21-year old Jamaican hotelier, took the all-inclusive idea one step further by including drinks and creating the first couples-only, all-inclusive resort. His first resort—Negril Beach Village—opened in 1976 in Jamaica and later became known as Hedonism II. He then revolutionized the industry once again by promising that his all-inclusive vacations would have no hidden costs.

So What Do You Get?

The answer to that question can vary for just about each and every all-inclusive resort, but the general idea is to avoid having to pull out your wallet or purse every few minutes. However, there are basics that you will get in almost all of these packages, which include at least three meals per day, soft drinks and often most alcoholic drinks, and all gratuities. A lot depends on the type of resort, since there are a number of different ones to choose from. Some cater only to adults and some, like the ones Issa popularized, accept only couples. There are others that are oriented toward families and some that offer all-inclusive destination weddings. The list goes on, but for each of these different resorts the all-inclusive package can be more or less “inclusive.” Keep all this in mind as you seek out all-inclusive resorts in the Atlanta, GA, area that may offer packages with unlimited Southern hospitality included in the price.
