It’s that time of year when we realise how quickly the year has flown past us. It’s also the time when we start finalising our holiday plans. To help you in planning for your next family holiday here are a few locations that will ensure you and your children (of all ages) have a great holiday.
Phuket is a very popular destination among South Africans; from its affordable prices to its gorgeous beaches. Phuket boasts a lush mountainous landscape and stunning beaches. Take your family shopping in one of the many markets or go on a cultural excursion exploring Buddhist temples and learning about Buddhism.
Stay at the 4-trident Club Med Phuket which boasts two restaurants; great amenities; and a range of activities including golf and tennis.
A ski holiday is a great idea especially since the school holiday falls in the European winter. Valmorel is a popular ski resort for good reason; it boasts classic French hamlet charm and it’s a skier’s paradise. Ski down the mountain during the day and enjoy evenings relaxing tired muscles marvelling at the arresting scenery around you.
Stay at the 4-trident Club Med Valmorel for the best family-friendly ski holiday solution. Children from 3 years of age can learn to ski and there are designated areas at the resort that cater specifically for children and teenagers.
There is also a spa at which you can enjoy relaxing treatments.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Explore the Caribbean coral reefs by snorkelling; experience a catamaran; go ziplining; discover the forests and caves of Los Haitises National Park; and more. Using Club Med Punta Cana as your base, you can explore this fascinating Caribbean country easily knowing you have 4-trident accommodation waiting for you. The excursion team at the resort can also recommend what to do and they can help you book it.
Staying at a Club Med resort also means that there is plenty for you to do at the resort including trapeze, archery, snorkelling, and kitesurfing. Babies can also try their hand at the baby gym and older children (including teenagers) can enjoy activities tailored for their age group while you play a round of golf or enjoy the sun.
The Zen Oasis is an adult-only area at the resort with a large lagoon pool, spacious Jacuzzi, and extensive sundeck with private relaxation cabanas and in-water chaise lounges. You can relax in this area knowing your children are having the time of their lives with the kids and teen clubs.
Pragelato Vialattea, Italy
The Club Med Pragelato Viallattea is a wonderful holiday village. You and your family can stay in a private chalet, with its own door, for that “home away from home” feeling. The accommodation comes in a range of shapes and sizes with the largest accommodating up to 10 people. There is also a suite for that extra luxury and space.
Other than cross country skiing, enjoy snowboarding, snowshoeing, dog sleighing, and much more.
There are a number of ways we make sure your children and you are taken care of, including a special baby welcome for children up to 23 months old. The baby welcome includes baby care products in your room, a cot, push chairs, and high chairs.
Club Med holiday packages are all-inclusive so you won’t need to worry about paying any additional fees for food or drinks when you arrive at your destination. The all-inclusive nature of Club Med also means that your ski lessons are included.
Club Med resorts offer kids clubs so that children and teenagers can be entertained while parents also get an opportunity to relax and have a holiday; it’s a great way to ensure that the whole family has time to relax and have fun together, giving you plenty of opportunities to make new memories together.
