5 of the best luxury accommodation options for families

Just because you are travelling with your family, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little luxury. From whole islands, that you can hire out all to yourself, to safari lodges which cater to even the youngest of guests, there are plenty of options available for you and your family. Here are 5 of the best luxury accommodation options for families:

Ariara Island, The Philippines

If you are in the mood to really indulge your family, you can’t go far wrong with Ariara Island in the Philippines. Situated 160 miles southwest of Manilla, you and your family have 25,000 square feet at your disposal, where uninterrupted views across the Sulu Sea are complimented by a team of in-house staff, ready to tend to your every need. Take advantage of the water sport equipment included in your stay, or simply relax with a glass of Champagne by the pool as you lose yourself in a good book.

Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge, South Africa

South Africa is a great destination for the first-time safari goer and a number of the camps in this country not only cater for the more discerning traveller, but also offer some wonderful child-friendly activities. Younger guests at the Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge are invited to spend time with guides who will introduce them to the ‘Little Five’ (buffalo weaver, elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion and rhino beetle) as well as teaching them how to track animals, while you can spend a little time indulging in your surroundings.

Southern Ocean Lodge, Australia

The ultra-luxurious Southern Ocean Lodge on Australia’s Kangaroo Island offers unparalleled views across rugged cliff tops to the wild Southern Ocean. Enjoy the view through floor to ceiling windows as you relax in one of the property’s magnificent family rooms, or be at one with nature and take in your surroundings from a private plunge spa. The Southern Ocean Lodge is definitely a property for those who appreciate exceptional local hospitality and a view to die for; the service here is world-class and the stay truly unforgettable for every member of the family.

Kasbah Bab Ourika, Morocco

Luxurious, welcoming and environmentally-friendly, the Kasbah Bab Ourika in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains offers a rustic experience, where inter-connecting rooms make for a pleasant and relaxing stay for you and your family. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Ourika Valley, this Kasbah is only 45 minutes from Marrakesh, but feels a world away from the bustling and frenetic atmosphere of the city’s famous Djema El Fna. Relax in the property’s swimming pool, or take advantage of your surroundings by embarking on a walk through the magnificent countryside.

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, Canada

You and your family will embark on a 55-minute sea plane flight to the breath-taking location of Clayoquot Wilderness Reserve, in Canada’s Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve, an area of fragile, temperate rainforest. A truly extraordinary retreat, accommodation is in luxury, safari-style tents, and where possible, your area will be split to provide family and adult-only sections. Stays throughout July and August tend to offer the most for families.
