Holiday Type / Top Five Educational Experiences

Travelling abroad can enhance your child's knowledge of the world and different cultures. And while family holidays are about precious leisure time together, many parents also value the opportunity to combine this with investing in their children's education. We have selected our top five luxury hotels and resorts around the world that do just that; budding astronauts can learn about all things celestial in private planetariums and future eco-warriors will love the science workshops and naturalist's master classes. Older children can learn to windsurf, take a junior lifeguard course and receive expert coaching in a football academy. Delight young minds with coral painting, guided explorations and a Marine Discovery Centre that teaches adults and children alike the role they can play in conserving the marine ecosystem. Sporting activities will keep them entertained while developing their skills from windsurfing and wakeboarding to private tennis tuition.
