Six Luxury Hotels for Your Next Family Holiday

schedule4 Minute Read

Amy Henderson

"Where there is family, there is love"

Every family is different, that's what make them worth treasuring - so why should every luxury family holiday be the same? We've rounded up this list of luxury hotels that are ready to welcome your entire tribe - from tots to grandparents and everyone in between...

1. Mandarin Oriental, Canouan

Canouan, St Vincent & The Grenadines

After the past year or so, a family reunion is probably high on your to-do list, and you can make it one to remember at Mandarin Oriental, Canouan. Measuring just five square miles, what the island of Canouan lacks in size it more than makes up for in spellbinding beauty and warm hospitality. Offering a true home-from-home for the whole family, the hillside Lagoon Villas house four bedrooms, a den, living room, full kitchen and private infinity pool with beautiful views. Little travellers will love the complimentary Pirates of Canouan Kids' Club (where heaps of educational fun awaits), whilst adults sneak off to enjoy a spa treatment, round of golf (at the only championship course in the Grenadines), or Caribbean cocktail overlooking the beautiful blue sea. Make memories together on bucket-list boat trips, snorkelling excursions or bike rides around the island, before an alfresco dinner for the entire family.

2. Marbella Club Hotel

Marbella, Spain

Live like royalty in this family-friendly, luxury Marbella hotel - the former private residence of Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, no less. Along with an array of luxury hotel rooms and suites (many of which have interconnecting options), the hotel is home to an array of Andalusian-Style villas - perfect as a base for the extended family! Little ones will be in heaven at the huge (we're talking 5,000-metre-squared) Minimec-designed kids' club. More like a mini village, it offers little guests a range of fully supervised and fun-filled activities that include inventive art and crafts, locally influenced dancing, cookery and educational nature experiences. Whilst little ones play, adults simply can't miss a trip to the award-winning and world-leading wellness centre. Elsewhere in the luxury Marbella hotel, there are golf, tennis and watersports facilities, not to mention an equestrian centre and a gorgeous golden beach... it truly is the ideal choice for every generation.

3. The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, Costa Navarino

Peloponnese, Greece

An award-winning resort in Greek's gorgeous Peloponnese region, and part of the sustainable Costa Navarino development, The Romanos is understandably adored by active families, home to its very own waterpark, bowling lane, go-kart ring and climbing wall. The newest addition to the sporting facilities is the ultra-exciting Mouratoglou Tennis Centre (the first in Europe), launched just this year in partnership with renowned coach Patrick Mouratoglou - former-coach of Serena Williams and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Blending into the classic Messinian landscape of olive trees, there are 16 state-of-the-art, sun-drenched, sea-view courses to choose from, as well as a programme of courses for all ages and abilities. Also for adults, there's the multi-awarded Anazoe Spa, its name aptly derived from the Greek word for 'rejuvenation', whilst family dinners can be enjoyed across the resort's 14 restaurants, serving everything from authentic Greek cooking to Middle Eastern flavours and modern Japanese cuisine.

4. Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita

Flacq, Mauritius

Ideal if you're seeking serenity, seclusion and serious seascapes on your luxury family holiday to Mauritius, this stunning resort is set on the island's enchanting east coast, overlooking a turquoise lagoon and extravagant gardens. It is made up exclusively of villas (all with private swimming pools) that offer up to five bedrooms - not to mention the fully equipped kitchen and abundance of living space in many of them. While tiny tots can explore their creative curiosities at the Hobbit Village Kids' Club, with activities including crab-hunting, line fishing and cookie-making in the bakery, teens will much prefer the ultra-cool atmosphere of Karokan, where the weekly schedule packs in everything from pool and FIFA tournaments, to beach soccer and water skiing tuition. For everyone else, there are daily complimentary snorkelling excursions, a duo of top-class golf courses, a superb spa and the charming Tortoise Garden, where you can all meet the resort's three treasured tortoises and watch them feed on their favourite fruits.

5. Atlantis, The Palm

The Palm, Dubai

Easily one of Dubai's most iconic hotels, Atlantis, The Palm is a firm favourite with families - particularly for the legendary Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark, which is set to become even more enchanting and expand in size by a third! Following the expansion, which includes the addition of record-breaking slides and rides, the watery wonderland will feature 105 slides, rides, attractions and experiences, along with 26 food outlets and a one-kilometre-long, lounger-lined beach, all over seen by 500 qualified lifeguards. Elsewhere in the legendary resort, there are a variety of super-luxe, recently rejuvenated rooms and suites, an incredible kids' club, The Zone teen's club and the cutting-edge Wavehouse - an entertainment venue that combines food and drinks with music, gaming, bowling, food and a state-of-the-art wave machine. Even better? Kids stay and dine for free during your stay!

6. Rosewood Phuket

Phuket, Thailand

For families with a sense of adventure, look no further than picturesque Phuket in Thailand. Here, the phenomenal, family-friendly Rosewood Phuket not only has perfectly private pavilions and villas, and an overwhelming choice of in-resort facilities - including a stunning swimming pool, word-class spa and fisherman's village-style restaurant - but it also encourages families to relish an immersive Thai experience. Inquisitive young guests can connect with the environment through the carefully curated Rosewood Explorers programme. Culturally focused activities include traditional Thai dancing, local crafts, language lessons with locals, Muay Thai and meditation, whilst chocolate crafting, beach cleaning and plant-based cookery are also on the (extensive) programme. This resort is also ideal for older kids and teens, offering yet more immersive experiences - from mocktails and culinary classes to beach bootcamp and 'A Day in the Life of a Hotelier' workshop.

From driving along the sun-kissed California coast and whale watching in Canada, to swimming with turtles in Barbados, cookery classes in Oman and touring temples in Thailand, I've enjoyed some amazing experiences around the world. With a genuine love for all things travel, I can't think of anything I'd rather do than research, experience and share incredible destinations, luxury hotels and bespoke adventures.
