Learning about new cultures, languages and countries together is an excellent experience for families and children that travel from a young age generally become more open-minded and culturally accepting adults.

Travelling with the kids can also be nerve-wracking, especially if they are very young. Children tend to fidget or cry on flights, they get bored unless entertained and they also have the propensity to wander off. So, travelling to a resort that caters for kids will certainly be a great choice and it will certainly take some of the burden off your shoulders.

While there are thousands of family holiday resorts around the world, these are our favourite exotic and unique family holiday resorts that will give your family the experience of a lifetime:


St Regis Mauritius


While many of the better family holiday resorts in Mauritius are family-friendly, the St Regis is particularly awesome for little ones. Situated on the south-west end of the island, it is further away from the commercial, busy side of the island and is perfect for ultimate relaxation.

The Kite Flyers Club is the resort’s incredible children’s club. Found across a rickety bridge and a small stream, the club is bound to keep your little ones busy for days. All activities are planned to entertain children in a fun and educational manner. There are nature walks, glass-bottomed boat trips to see the reef, local cooking classes, and tons of beach activities. For the days when the weather might be a little gloomy, there are arts and crafts, a playroom and plenty of games.

The St Regis has created a kids club where you can rest absolutely assured that your little ones are in the best of hands while you to get the relaxation that you deserve.


Soneva Kiri, Thailand


Found on the lush, forested island of Koh Kood in the Gulf of Thailand, this wild wonderland is sure to leave your family breathless. 35 massive villas can be found on the 150 acre property, each with its own free-falling infinity swimming pool. While the accommodation itself is unbelievable, it is Soneva Kiri’s kids club that makes it one of the best family holiday resorts in the world.

The Den, as it’s known, is an incredible moulded bamboo structure – in the shape of a manta ray (a local species of fish) -- found at the very top of the treetops. There are peepholes in the floor to gaze at the jungle and its secrets below. Rainforest walks, a library and local school visits add an element of learning and social responsibility, while bracelet making, pool-based quidditch, obstacle courses and cooking lessons provide endless fun.

Apart from The Den, which is bound to reawaken the childlike wonder in all of you, there are also other great activities that encourage family bonding. Father and son fishing trips, mother and daughter day spas and a chocolate and wine paring for adults combined with a mocktail and chocolate pairing for the kids. Soneva Kiri has created something so wonderful that it may be hard to go anywhere else with your family in the future.


Jaci’s Lodges, South Africa


This unique family holiday resort is found in the wild Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa. The 400 square miles offer an amazing opportunity for you and your family to see the Big Five and many other wonderful creatures. What makes Jaci’s Lodge stand apart from many of the country’s other luxury lodges is the inclusion and education of their younger guests, which makes it one the best family holiday resorts.

The child-friendly accommodation for families comes with a private guide and four-wheel vehicle, which means that you can go on game drives whenever you choose, and not worry about a fidgety little one disturbing other guests. The great thing about these drives is that your children get the opportunity to be the guide’s right-hand man (or woman). They will learn about the African bush up close and personal, with tracking lessons, track casting, and bug collection.

There is also a games room for those times of the day where you may need to sit back and relax with a gin and tonic. Jaci’s Lodges also run wildlife photography courses for kids, which will give your family the opportunity not just to learn all the wonderful things about the bush, but also perhaps help them develop a fun and safe hobby for the future.

These are just some of the coolest family holiday resorts that both you and the kids are bound to love. However, we understand that they could very well be a once-off holiday destination.
