Whether you’re gluten free, vegan or have food allergies, travelling with dietary requirements can sometimes be a nerve-wracking experience. Fortunately, there are resorts out there that cater to every eating need under the sun, taking the stress out of visiting new destinations.
Below are some of our most highly recommended tummy-friendly resorts. Our biggest tip is to let the resort team know of your requirements in advance, so that they’re aware of them from the moment you arrive and can cater your entire stay to your specific needs.
