At Elegant Resorts, we know how important a luxury family holiday can be; a chance to relax and reconnect without the usual distractions of day-to-day life. With beautiful beaches, unmatched natural beauty, boundless activities and glorious weather, it is easy to see why the charismatic Caribbean has become an ever-popular choice for families seeking luxury like no other. To help you plan your next faraway family getaway to perfection, we have assembled some inspiration from three of our favourite Caribbean islands, including what to do and where to stay.
Luxury Family Holidays in Barbados
Although it may have a reputation for glitz and glamour, Barbados is equally suited to a family-friendly holiday. With a wealth of things to do for every age group, this tropical island is a Caribbean family favourite. Although lingering along the beach all day can be tempting, there are a plethora of adventurous activities and inspiring experiences to keep tireless youngsters busy - take a personalised snorkelling tour for a magnificent view of the underwater world, explore energetic Bridgetown on foot or by bike, or visit one (or more) of the many historic buildings and monuments across the island.
Every generation will discover their own slice of paradise at recently-renovated Fairmont Royal Pavilion. For multigenerational families, the resort’s Three Bedroom Villa has plenty of space, including a relaxed terrace overlooking the surrounding tropical gardens. Let your every whim be catered to with a private butler service and take advantage of the resort’s daily activities, including the unmissable ‘swimming with turtles’ experience.
Luxury Family Holidays in Antigua
With white sandy beaches and glorious year-round temperatures, Antigua has become favoured with families looking for a blissful break with plenty of personality. The natural beauty of this luxury Caribbean island is unmistakeable, varying from powder-fine sands meeting calm, turquoise waters, to emerald green rainforests which are best observed by zip-wire! Uncover the island’s English roots in the charming capital of St John’s, or head for Shirley Heights at sunset, for a view to leave the whole family awe-struck.
Along the island’s southern shore, Carlisle Bay is equally adored by travellers of all ages. While parents are free to relish in the unrivalled indulgence of the Blue Spa or find inner-peace in the dedicated yoga pavilion, the resort’s Cool Crèche and Cool Kids Club help to keep little imaginations busy with specially designed indoor and outdoor areas, featuring a sand pit, paddling pool, jungle gym and mini tennis court.
Luxury Family Holidays in St Lucia
In the shadow of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pitons, St Lucia has become the subject of much passion and protection over the years. The list of outdoor pursuits across the island is endless, many of which are the reason this Caribbean isle is a wonderous destination for adventure-seeking families. From exhilarating jeep safaris and scenic helicopter flights, to a relaxing mud soak in the unique drive-in volcano, combine adventure and indulgence to design the ultimate Caribbean family holiday.
Keeping the majestic Pitons in sight, Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort encourages young visitors to make the most of St Lucia’s incomparable natural setting. From nature walks and coconut painting, to the popular Sailing Club in the protected bay, kids are kept busy from dawn to dusk, while adults are free to indulge as they desire. Reunite in the evening for a mouth-watering meal at one of the resort’s divine restaurants.
