Posted: 06 July 2018

Luxury Family Holidays In 2018
With our busy daily lives and hectic work schedules, a family holiday is an essential way to escape, relax and spend quality time together. Having fun and bonding, in a new and exciting environment, is the ideal way to spend a precious annual holiday and create lasting family memories. To help you narrow down your luxury family holiday search for 2018, we’ve selected ten of our favourite hotels, resorts, villas and apartments to inspire your next family holiday and to guarantee your best family holiday yet…

Finding Your Perfect Family Holiday
Whether you are seeking a family adventure, splashes of fun at a waterpark, a thrilling wildlife experience, or some simple beach fun, there is a destination and resort bound to pack in the fun factor for all the family. With such a stunning selection of global hotels and resorts to choose from though, how do you find the best family resort to suit your energetic little ones or temperamental teens? It’s important to choose the right destination for your 2018 family holiday and our top ten holidays offer enough luxurious treats, fantastic facilities and wondrous aquatic attractions to please young and old alike. Choosing the right resort can lead to perfect family harmony, along with long lasting memories. Whether a last-minute family getaway, well-planned multi-generational get together, or long-awaited family reunion, a luxury holiday is a stress-free and enjoyable way of meeting up as a family.

Beach Fun, Waterparks and Safari Adventures
For great family beach holidays, Cyprus, Barbados and Antigua are hard to beat, whilst when it comes to splashing family fun, Florida and Dubai always hit the spot. Those families seeking an adventure further afield, should book a safari in South Africa as it’s guaranteed to amaze little minds. From wildlife to marine life and ocean enthusiasts — water babies and teens will love the mesmerising Maldives with its awe-inspiring marine attractions and endless hues of blue. Meanwhile, families wishing to stay closer to home could discover the culture of Croatia with a stay in trendy Dubrovnik. For those shunning the sunshine and favouring the European snow, your 2018 family holiday could be all about skiing or snowboarding. Whilst high doses of adrenaline can be found in the lofty French Alps, a leisurely family villa holiday is the ideal way to relax and enjoy a slower pace, plus enviable lifestyle with private pool fun, barbecues and golf.

Our Top Ten Family Holidays In 2018
 1 Columbia Beach Resort in sunny Cyprus, is an ideal all-suite escape for families. Featuring kids clubs, sports and leisure programmes, Columbia Watersports Centre, cycle tours, crafts, arts and cookery, it’s a action-packed destination for every family.

2 Carlisle Bay, a firm favourite with beach-loving families and sailing enthusiasts, this blissful Antigua resort has everything covered for young and old to holiday in style in 2018.

3 Atlantis The Palm Dubai is a fantastical marvel in the sand. With endless family facilities to amaze and entertain every age, this extensive resort in Dubai matches the beach with an indoor aquarium and is perfect for youngsters who never like to stand still!

4 Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, a new addition to the Florida circuit, guests are in the very heart of the fun, with thrills, spills and splashes guaranteed. With renowned Four Seasons service, fine dining and Kids For All Seasons club, this is a world-class waterpark and theme park destination for your family holiday!

5 Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape is an ideal finale to any Garden Route tour or Cape Town stay. Malaria-free with lodges especially tailored to families, Shamwari Private Game Reserve promises family wildlife experiences to remember and a once-in-a-lifetime holiday in 2018.

8 The Westin at Costa Navarino, Costa Navarino is a dream family holiday destination with a host of Greek attractions and exceptional facilities. A private beachfront location with spa, golf course and family-friendly accommodation, this resort has it all for 2018.

9 Portetta Hotel and Mountain Lodges, is the perfect holiday destination for families who love to ski. A lofty abode in the heart of France's alpine action, families can spend the day on the piste before indulging in all things après ski.

10 Cocomaya is a new addition to our portfolio and the perfect destination for a luxury family villa holiday in 2018. For families wishing to combine golf with a private pool and relaxed family fun, under the bright Barbados sun, this is an enviable address to play in.

Inspiring Your 2018 Family Holiday
Of course, this list is by no means exhaustive and we feature global resorts and sanctuaries boasting all manner of facilities, specialist sports academies, sailing courses and outdoor experiences especially for active families. When seeking ranching and outdoor adventure, the USA comes high on the wish-list, and the coastal attractions of the The Resort at Pelican Hill would suit every generation of the family. A far lazier tropical beach option, for every age, could be found at Saint Peter’s Bay Luxury Resort & Residences in Barbados. Here, families can choose from one, two and three bedroom homes and savour the freedom and flexibility of a luxury self-catering holiday, with the added benefit of a shared pool and resort facilities on-site. Staying on Barbados, if money is no object for your luxury 2018 family holiday, then the sensational Sandy Lane hotel is the place to be seen and indulge amongst tropical luxury. To book your own luxury family holiday in 2018, or to be inspired further, please call our expert Travel Consultants who’d be delighted to arrange your next family getaway filled with fun and adventure.
