12 Best ACNH Resort Island Ideas

Being stuck on an island and trying to build a new society with a bunch of cute and friendly animals can seem like a lot of work.

You probably need a place to unwind after building so much.

You need a special place on your island where you can get away, a kind of getaway, if you will.

Well, if you want to create a resort area for your island, these ideas should help.

We have spas, pools, and nice beaches to help you relax and enjoy life on a warm island.

12. Lazy River Pool

ACNH Resort Island

It would be cool to have your own lazy river pool, wouldn’t it?

You can just relax and let all your problems drift away.

Well, you can! But only in the game Animal Crossing.

By putting that lazy river pool on your island, this idea lets you live through your Animal Crossing mini-me.

After you build your pool, add some “floating” Life Rings and Inflatable Sofas to make it look more like a lazy river.

The code needed to do this was made by @miyan0_0miyan, but luckily @miecas_ shares it.

11. Mini Pool Resort

Due to the way the world is right now, a lot of us probably haven’t been to a pool in a while.

But the good thing about Animal Crossing is that we can use it to get away from reality while we’re on vacation.

This island idea from lanasacnh on Instagram gives your island a small pool and a place to lay out in the sun.

Use a Custom Design code for the water, tiles, and pier. Place Beach Chairs and Towels around the area and float some Inflatable Bird Rings in the pool.

Since the 2.0 update added new foods and drinks, you can also use them as ornaments. You can have juices and cakes at your lodge with a pool.

The designer has been kind enough to share the codes for these patterns.

10. Bamboo Day Spa

In New Horizons, there is a lot of bamboo style.

And here’s a beautiful example of how to use it in a casual setting.

To get started here, it’s clear that you’ll need some bamboo trees. And you’ll want to place them carefully so that your guests can sit in the shade.

Then you’d need to cut some bamboo to make a bamboo shelf and bamboo floor lamps. There are a lot of ways to change the look of this spa, but I think the light wood color works best.

Last, you’ll need to buy a wood-burning stove, a hot bath, and a bed to put by the pool. So you’ll have a place to lie down and enjoy the summer breeze.

9. Beach Bar

Finding the right spot is the most important part of making this beach bar.

Choose a nice spot near the water, whether it’s the ocean or a river close.

You would also need some den desks and wicker stools to make a bar area.

Also, try to get some rattan chairs for the general area to match the bar chairs.

And the palm trees and coconuts are the most important parts of any beach scene.

You can plant palm trees whenever you want, but you should focus on the DIY recipes you can make from them.

Make some palm tree lamps to light up the night, and throw in some coconut juice so that everyone can have something to drink.

7. Brunch Lobby

There are often cute little places to eat at vacations. And breakfast is the best meal of all.

For this plan, you’ll need two den desks and a menu chalkboard for the front desk.

I also like how the antique chairs and small tables make it a fun place to have breakfast.

The light herringbone floor and the white walls with flowers go well together. And they go very well with the meal.

Tea sets are an important part of brunch, so make sure to include them somewhere.

6. Outdoor Snowy Spa

Winter is probably the worst time to take a bath outside.

But it sure makes for a pretty scene.

In this plan, both the sand beds and the beds by the pool have unique designs that scream “sunny beachside resort.”

You can also put a cypress bathtub and cypress trees in the middle, which will be the main feature of this spa.

You’ll also want to plant a lot of palm trees in the area so that some snow can stick to them in the winter and give this design a real winter sparkle.

5. Infinity Pool

Have you ever seen a picture of one of those pools with no ground around it?

Just a big glass box filled with water, and they look great.

Well, this idea tries (as best you can) to make one of those circular pools in New Horizons.

For this to look like a getaway, you’ll need things like palm trees, palm tree lamps, coconut juice, and chairs by the pool.

But I’m getting tired of myself.

The swimming pool is what you want to know about. To do that, you need to build and shape a cliff so that the water runs off the back of it.

Then put floor lights around the rest of the pool so the party can start at night.

4. Poolside Housing

I’ve been obsessed lately with making fun places for each of my villagers to hang out right outside their houses.

This fun idea jumped out to me because it makes great use of the custom design feature to make a place for all of my villagers to live.

Both the boardwalks and the water styles are custom patterns that you’ll have to pave on the ground from house to house.

Rattan chairs and swimming beds can also be used as waterside furniture.

Lastly, put beach balls in the water to complete the look of an island vacation.

3. Enchanted Forest Hot Springs

This idea is simple but beautiful, which is usually the kind of style I like best.

The first step in putting up this beautiful, natural indoor resort area is to get some jungle wallpaper and flooring.

Then, you’ll need a lot of stones to make an outdoor bath that you’ll put inside.

And I like the small things this player made, like the wooden duck and the pile of leaves. They make this place feel like a paradise outside.

2. Tropical Resort

Here’s another beautiful idea for a resort that also makes use of unique designs. I should add that they use custom patterns in a very unique way.

If you made some parasols for Festivale, you should pull them out of your store and use them here.

They give great shade to the beach chairs and beach towels that are set up along the river’s edge.

And as a final touch, buy a lot of life rings for the river that runs through your lodge. (well, you can act like you do)

1. Japanese Bathhouse

This idea uses a lot of things I’ve talked about before, but it brings them all together into one perfect plan.

Set up the base of this room with rush tatami mats and shoji screen wallpaper.

You’ll also need more than one cypress bathtub so that everyone can rest.

Also, save up a lot of stones, because it takes 24 stones to make each stone lion-dog. And it takes 90 to make a stone arch. Yikes!

To finish this project, make some bamboo walls to give yourself a little space. And maybe a place to store things on a bamboo shelf.

Then you’ve got yourself a nice place to relax at a lodge.
