While many high-end properties around the world cater to an adults-only crowd, traveling with children doesn’t mean your clients have to sacrifice the comfort and amenities that come with staying at a luxury resort or hotel. For adults looking to bring the kids in their life along for a vacation, these are just a few of the family-friendly luxury properties that are particularly welcoming for the kiddos.
Rose Buds In Mexico
Families headed to Los Cabos will find a wide variety of activities and amenities suited for children at the luxury Las Ventanas al Paraiso, a Rosewood Resort. Guests of all ages can spend the day splashing around in the resort’s infinity Oasis pool, which features a resident DJ and underwater speakers, or float gently alongside one another as they make their way down the colorfully decorated lazy river—the first in Los Cabos. Families can also play pentaque, a game similar to bocce, on a nearby terrain located just beside the pool area. A mini golf course is also located adjacent to Oasis giving families yet another option for poolside bonding. This spring break, Las Ventanas al Paraiso will also offer special programming specifically designed for children and featuring activities such as pinata decorating, folk art painting, and taco-making classes.
The resort also offers a Rose Buds program designed for Las Ventanas’ youngest guests that provides families with special services, amenities and convenience items designed just for them, including a portable crib, en-suite wireless baby monitors, a full-sized crib and linens, in-room baby proofing services, child-sized bath robes and slippers, plus a fully-equipped changing table.
Las Ventanas’ rates start at $805 per night. for more information, visit rosewoodhotels.com.
Escape From New York City
Whether your clients are NYC residents looking to escape the busy Big Apple, or they’re out of towners looking for a new perspective on what New York has to offer, a stay at Mohonk Mountain House will bring them to the heart of the Hudson Valley for time to unplug and connect with each other and Mother Nature. While activities such as horseback riding, tennis, golf, swimming, hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking can be enjoyed by the whole family, the hotel also features a Kids’ Club and Teen Program that are complimentary for overnight guests. Based on a philosophy of “lets kids be kids,” the Kids’ Club program is designed to include plenty of playtime, along with learning opportunities while exploring the natural wonders and beauty of Mohonk. Meanwhile, the Teen Program offers teens the space to discover a new passion or just “hang out” with their peers without parents or younger siblings.
Rates for this property start at $765 per night. For more information, visit mohonk.com.
