Are you like me and sometimes travel somewhere simply because of food or quirky accommodation? Does the sound of an all veg place to rest your weary head make you excited?!
I have a new hobby of collecting vegan hostels, hotels, resorts, etc. and figured I should actually publish the information! This list will be updated as I discover new ones.
Disclaimer: I have not stayed at all of these places nor am I personally affiliated with them. I’ve just compiled this list and the descriptions based on each accommodation’s websites, reviews, social media profiles, etc. in hopes that it helps others seeking out vegan places to stay for some travel inspiration. If you find your place on this list and don’t want it listed, just contact me and I’m happy to take it down. This list began with a discussion on the Vegan Travel group on Facebook and many of the places listed below were recommended by members there.
Know of a somewhere not on this list or found something inaccurate? Please comment below or contact me and let me know!
AirBnB – If there’s no specifically vegan accommodation where you want to go, I recommend getting an AirBnB with a kitchen. I do this all the time and it’s way cheaper than a hotel and means you can be vegan pretty much anywhere and also explore the local grocery stores! Even if I do eat out often I quite like a kitchen to have breakfast at home. If you’re new to AirBnB, you can join Airbnb with this link to save $25 on your first booking (disclaimer: I get a small amount of AirBnB credit if you use my link, which I’ll use for more vegan traveling!).
Veggie Hotels – A database of purely vegetarian and vegan hotels, b&bs and guesthouses in more than 60 countries. Search by location, good if you already have a country in mind.
Vegvisits – an all-vegetarian version of AirBnB. Book rooms online at all-veg places.
Vegan Cruises and Tours
Veg Jaunts and Journeys – Afraid to travel alone, or want the planning done for you? Veg Jaunts and Journeys takes small groups of vegans and aspiring vegans to visit the many vegan-friendly places sprouting up around the world, including new restaurants, hotels, festivals, walking tours and animal sanctuaries. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for vegans to join mainstream tours where they would be extremely limited by the included meals, as well as
visiting attractions and partaking in activities that potentially cause harm to animals. They are different as they do not rsh through cities, each trip is 7-10 days so you can really get to know the city. With a small group, you won’t feel alone, and the likelihood that someone in the group knows a foreign language will be very helpful outside city centers. Transportation costs, such as hiring a van with a local driver, can be split across the group, making the place much more accessible. Many of their tours include all meals, so your trip is truly all-inclusive. Popular vegan restaurants will be chosen ahead of the trip, saving valuable vacation time.

Jacobs Ridge Animal Sanctuary
Jacobs Ridge Animal Sanctuary – This place was highly recommended in the Vegan Travel group. Not a regular accommodation, but rather a volunteering opportunity. From the website, “It is important to us that Jacobs Ridge is not just a sanctuary for animals, but for humans also. In connecting with the animals, nature and at the same time following a vegan lifestyle, we aim to create a space where people can find inner harmony and reconnect with themselves. We wish to further improve the lives of our rescue animals and offer a permanent home to more in need by securing and expanding the site of Jacobs Ridge. At the same time, we will educate those who need it on the exploitation of animals so that more animals can live life without fear.” Volunteer holidays are booked in weekly blocks but you can stay as long as you like. Closest airport is Murcia San Javier. Each week costs £480.00 per person. The volunteer experience is fully inclusive so you have nothing else to worry about whilst you are there.
