Away from juggling work and cooking for the whole family and helping the kids with the homework, a family holiday is the perfect time for families to spend time together. But taking a family holiday with the kids this summer doesn’t have to mean the absence of luxury!
Here are some of my very best luxury family holidays for 2017:
One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives
In the local language of Dhivehi, ‘Reethi Rah’ translates to ‘beautiful island’ and that is exactly what it is! The award winning, Reethi Rah resort in the Maldives is sprawled across it’s very own island with the regions very first PADI National Geographic dive centre, sun spa and a climbing wall. Amongst the long list of activities for both the kids and adults to enjoy, there are eight dining spots on the resort, tennis courts for all guests to use and 12 golden, sand beaches, meaning you will feel spoiled rotten at this resort.
Four Seasons Resort, Mauritius
Located at the heart of the Anahita peninsula estate on the east coast of Mauritius, you will find the secluded and spacious luxury Four Seasons resort. The whole family will enjoy spending all day coasting across the turquoise water in your very own sailing boat, or touring a former sugar plantation to learn the history of Mauritius. Or let the kids run wild and make friends with the local fauna like giant tortoises and then fall asleep in a hammock under the stars.
The Atlantis Palm, Dubai
Bringing to life the legend of Atlantis, the Atlantis Palm resort in Dubai combines luxury and legend! One of Dubai’s most iconic resorts resembles that of an elaborate, dusty-pink palace out of a fairytale, a palace you and your little prince and princesses will love.
Located on the spectacular man-made island called The Palm, The Atlantis Palm has one of the world’s largest aquariums with over 65,000 exotic marine animals. There is also the Aquaventure Waterpark has fun for all the family, from fast and slow, big and small waterslides and ziplines, rope bridges and climbing frames – for even the smallest of guests.
