May Half Term Escapes with Elegant Resorts
If indulging in a luxury family holiday at Easter seems a little too soon to escape, why not plan a half term escape in May? You might wish to work off the Easter Eggs indulgence in exotic Mauritius, which offers a wonderful climate and an especially lovely temperature, with less humidity for families during May. Families will totally adore the facilities, spa and beach at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, for example. Other luxury resorts worth highlighting are Sandy Lane in Barbados, which is always dreamy and has more availability during May, while the ever-popular One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives is sensational whatever the season and has a great kids’ club, excursions and watersports for all ages, along with the all-important sandy beaches and warm, crystal-clear water. In the USA, Florida never fails to delight and is replete with excellent family-friendly luxury hotels right on the white-sand beaches, including The Breakers, Palm Beach, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes and Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort. Indonesia, meanwhile, offers an entirely different cultural experience, along with superb hospitality and some of the finest luxury hotel facilities in the world. In Bali, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay and The St. Regis Bali Resort are two of the very best exponents of this and perfect for a luxury beach holiday.
If long-haul or mid-haul travel is too daunting to consider with your little ones in tow, there is a raft of exciting options that are located closer to home in Europe and feature excellent facilities for families, such as The Ritz-Carlton, Abama in Tenerife ¬– with a kids’ club for children and a sophisticated beach club for the grown ups – and Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa in Portugal, a fabulous all-round resort with its own sandy beach and offering a crèche, kids’ park, activities for children and a plethora of varied activities for mums and dads, such as spa treatments, tennis lessons and mountain-biking. Glorious Anassa in Cyprus, meanwhile, is famous for its RYA-accredited sailing courses, award-winning children’s clubs and a wide, interesting range of leisure options for all the family, with a particular focus on fitness, sport and wellbeing. Enjoy the facilities of a five star resort with the privacy of a luxury villa at Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites in Crete – boasting a spa, restaurants and, most importantly, a kids’ club! If you crave more privacy, flexibility and independence than a luxury resort or hotel allows, however, a private villa can be just the thing. Head to Italy, where rustic Italian style, culture, privacy and spectacular scenery can be found in abundance at Villa Casellina, set amongst the rolling landscapes of Umbria.
