Family holiday: sun or snow?

With Christmas a distant memory and Easter a few weeks past, now may be a good time to start dreaming about your next family holiday.

If you are chasing the sun, another family favourite is Club Med Bintan Island . Described as a holistic wellness escape, Bintan is an ideal family holiday destination.

The kids will love their time spent at our kids’ club in Bintan, where they can also try their hand at trapeze!

Grand Massif Samoëns Morillon

Perhaps, you’d prefer a chillier holiday with tons of skiing or snowboarding (or just to see the snow) – in which case Club Med Grand Massif Samoëns Morillon is just what the doctor ordered. This resort is built on the edge of a cliff at 1600m, and overlooks the valley with a 360° view on surrounding mountains. With such an elevation, imagine sliding down the snow covered slopes – a skier’s dream. Grand Massif Samoëns Morillon opened its doors in December last year and is ideal for families!

Gastronomy (and wine) is the pride and joy of the French and Grand Massif Samoëns Morillon will not disappoint! The resort features a Gourmet Lounge with a menu design by French Chef Edouard Loubet- fine dining at its best! More so, the kids will adore their time in Bread and Co. restaurant where the kids get the chance to run their own restaurant and invite their parents for an evening out. The children then cook and serve the meal, with lots of fun and games for the whole family in between. This is Resort living and family reconnecting at its best.

With all these amazing options, the only tough decision to make is: sun, or snow?
