Comprehensive doesn’t even come close to describing this family-friendly pastel pink resort. Complete with streets and squares and twirling turrets, it feels more like a fairy-tale town. It’s strange, how a place modelled on a 19th century Spanish colonial village can feel intimate, yet somehow Bahía del Duque manages. One of Tenerife’s original luxury resorts, they’ve hit the sweet spot with a crowd-pleasing escape that doesn’t sacrifice on individualised service.Read more
Seaduced Villa is 6,400 square foot of Caribbean-modernity in the middle of the region’s finest golf course. The wooden walkway flanked by water features makes for a real entrance to this five-bedroom property. Groups and families can reconnect in a place where the manicured grass of Westmoreland’s 16th fairway beckons from the doorstep, and the cool toned palette of smart interiors, infinity-edge pool and sea views chill the mind and body.
Delivering signature Four Seasons service in a unique setting resembling a traditional Maldivian village, Kuda Huraa is one of the more intimate resorts in the Maldives but it is no less impressive. Children can help rebuild the coral reef, learn to surf (6+), and take diving lessons in the lagoon (8+). There’s also a Kids’ Club, free-form family pool, and Family Beach Bungalows with private pools.
Set against a backdrop of pristine rainforest within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this resort is the jewel in St Lucia’s crown. Drag yourselves away from the sun-kissed shoreline or your butler-serviced room with plunge pool and head out on a guided nature hike through the jungly terrain, stopping to marvel at the tropical birds, exotic fruit trees and dazzling Piton views.Read more
Originally a hotspot for Hollywood stars of the 70s looking to hide away in the tropics, the resort’s décor and clientele may have changed over the years, but its popularity endures. An institution where staff are as loyal as its guests (receptionist Preetham has worked here since the hotel’s opening and greets guests like old friends), Mauritius’ oldest luxury hotel isn’t somewhere guests forget easily.
Just a short hop from historic Speightstown and perfectly positioned for exploring, luxury residences and penthouses are supremely spacious and ideal for families. For those bigger family gatherings, join two or three-bedroom residences together for a large expansive space that gives everyone room to stretch out. Ramp up the laid-back vibes sampling Barbados’ finest rum punch, served by Gilbert, a humble Bajan gentleman with a gleaming smile.Read more
Looking to stay in one of the most remote, yet innovative places on earth? The much-anticipated inaugural flagship Patina resort brings an elevated, ultra-luxe offering to the Fari islands. Sustainability, sustenance, and wellbeing are all considered here, along with fresh accommodation built with the environment in mind. Time on the island can be spent indulging in a myriad of gastronomic dishes, exploring the marina or simply relaxing.
Tucked away on one of the island’s most heavenly beaches, the resort’s two and three-bedroom villa suites are a particularly great choice for larger family gatherings. As luxurious, spacious and private as you can get, ocean view and beachfront suites come with a dedicated butler who will be at your beck and call. Staff here go the extra mile for little ones, planning picnic trips to Pigeon Island, whilst the gentle waters are idyllic for family fun.Read more
Full-blown modern Arabian opulence is the watchword at this hideaway offering boutique hotel levels of attention, but with all the advantages of a larger resort. You’ll wonder that such calm can be experienced in one of the world’s most dynamic cities, but this sanctuary – with a glamorous beachfront it shares with two other properties – provides all that and more. Precious moments of peace are guaranteed as fun-filled activities such as sand art, seashell hunting and culinary classes will keep children busy.
Proving that there’s more to Oman than desert and sand, Anantara Jabal Al Akhdar lets its surroundings take centre stage. Stretching across the mountains 6,500ft above sea level, the rooms spill out on to private terraces overlooking sweeping canyon vistas. Venture back down to the toasty warmth of Muscat and the comforts of The Chedi – a marriage of cherished traditions and sleek and polished design where your biggest decision of the day is which pool to lounge by.
Few mountain residences can boast such a combination of scenic grandeur, welcoming luxury and family-friendly touches, yet the Forbes 5-star service and spacious suites at Four Seasons Whistler give it some bragging rights. Traditional wooden interiors make even the more palatial private residences feel like a cosy escape from the snowy slopes outside their walls. Rest skied-out muscles at the spa with Canadian-themed treatments and take in the panoramic views from the heated outdoor pool.
