12 Of The Best Vegan Hotels From Around the World

Time for a holiday? Want to make it cruelty-free? I’ve found 10 of the best vegan hotels around the world!

By Noa Ben-Moshe

If you had asked me about fully vegan hotels only a few years back, I wouldn’t have even imagined they existed. Hotels with vegan items on the menu, sure. But fully vegan? In terms of decor, services and meals? Ha!

But since veganism is on the rise, more and more fully vegan hotels are opening around the world.

Wondering what that really means? It goes far beyond food!

What’s a vegan hotel, anyway?

A vegan hotel won’t have, for example, any of the following:

  • down filled pillows or duvets
  • wool blankets
  • fur pillows, carpets or blankets
  • leather chairs or sofas

Its spa, if there is one, will use only vegan friendly products.

And of course, it will certainly have an expansive, delicious vegan menu for every single meal.

They’re not easy to find, though! So we asked our friends at VeggieHotels/VeganWelcome for some advice. Both websites are filled with information that will allow you to find the vegan hotel of your dreams!

Whether you’re looking for an ethical weekend getaway with your vegan friends or a stress-free, easy vacation that lets you rest and relax without constantly searching for vegan-friendly restaurants, this article is for you!
