Members of the Fat Girls Traveling community often request suggestions for the best resorts for plus-size travelers. So we’ve compiled a list of the most recommended fat-friendly spas and resorts. From views of the northern lights to adult-only and clothing-optional properties, we’ve included regional and international resort options at a variety of price points.

FGT Member Says: “I’ve never felt uncomfortable and I’ve gone at US sizes 28 – 32. The only issue I had was that the robes weren’t big enough, which was only a problem when going for a spa service.”
FGT Member Says: “I’m a size 26 and never felt out of place.”
FGT Member Says: “They have beautiful robes up to 4-5X . Request this when you book or on arrival.”

FGT Member Says: “I stayed at the Springs for my birthday and if you stay there you get 24/7 access to all their 25 mineral pools.”
FGT Member Says: “The Melia Caribe in Punta Cana is absolutely gorgeous!”
FGT Member Says: “There are rooms with semi-private swim out pools. The beach, oh the beach! It is SO swimmable, calm, and just lovely. You’ll never want to get out of the water except to maybe order a cocktail from the server who comes to your chair.”
