LGBTQ-friendly beach hotels & resorts

It's finally June, and in honor of Pride Month, we’re shining a spotlight on four noteworthy TAG Approved® hotels. What does it mean to be TAG Approved? First off, TAG stands for Travel Advocacy Group. These hotel properties enforce non-discriminatory policies including sexual orientation and gender identity, treat heterosexual and same-sex couples equally in personnel policies, and provide LGBTQ diversity and sensitivity training for employees. They also employ staff who reflect the diversity of their community. This is precisely why TAG Approved LGBTQ-friendly accommodations represent the very best in the world of hospitality. Here’s why you should consider checking in to some of our favorites.

Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa

The stunning ocean or marina views from every suite at Breathless Cabo San Lucas truly live up to its name. You can even take in the sights from its gourmet eateries, infinity pools, rooftop lounge, and open-air lobby. This chic, adults-only resort is ready to keep you entertained day and night, with DJ pool parties, live music and performances, fashion shows, and sunset rooftop soirees. And if you want to indulge in some “me time”, you can enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment or yoga session for some total relaxation. Treat your taste buds to delicious international cuisine options at one of Breathless’ many social restaurants, where you can mingle with other guests at communal tables.

And perhaps the best part is the resort’s Unlimited-Luxury® experience, where the best of everything is included. From premium drinks, decadent meals and 24-hour room service, to events and entertainment, it’s all covered with your stay…even Wi-Fi.

Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach

Located on one of the world’s most famous shorelines, you can find Alohilani Resort where the city meets the sand. Surrounded by the serene ocean, Diamond Head, and Waikiki, this modern oasis offers a refreshing balance of relaxation and energy in Oahu. Alohilani seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor luxury in a welcoming, tranquil space for you to recharge. Its open-air lobby and 280,000-gallon Oceanarium are sure to captivate you, as will its destination pool deck with private cabanas, saltwater infinity pool, and day-to-night pool bar. Kids will enjoy the shallow-water pool and club for little ones. Looking for some wellness options? Get your fix while on vacation here at the rooftop fitness experience, which includes sunset yoga, tennis lessons, batting cages, and more.

The resort’s awe-inspiring design pays tribute to Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage. And if you’re a foodie, you’re in luck because Alohilani has two restaurants by the internationally-known Iron Chef himself, Masaharu Morimoto.

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino

If you’re headed to Palm Beach in Aruba, consider the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort and Casino. You’ll feel right at home in its newly designed rooms, where you’ll enjoy a relaxing ocean, island, garden, or pool view. Soak up the sun at the beach or lounge by the pool. Up for some tennis or want to try your hand at the casino? You can do that, too. And, when you want to venture out to explore the Caribbean, hop on a banana boat or catamaran, take in a round of golf, or a jeep tour of Aruba’s magnificent Arikok National Park.

As for the food, you can savor fresh meals and drinks at 10 bars and restaurants on-site or relax with some in-room dining. There’s also a market café for more casual options. Be sure to check out the resort’s Pampered in Paradise beach dinners for an unforgettable experience as well.
