Travelling With Babies & Toddlers When September arrives and signals the return of school age children back to their classrooms after the summer holidays, it’s a great time to think about your luxury holiday with baby in tow. And, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion’s elegant, yet understated Beachfront Junior Suites are very popular with new families. Conveniently located on the ground floor, these suites offer guests superior service from the minute they arrive in Barbados, with an airport fast track service through Immigration and Customs, a dedicated Butler, daily in-room amenities and complimentary evening canapés, and a cot or extra bed can be added on request.** Each suite features a private outside deck area right over the beach and only metres from the sea, allowing parents to enjoy the outdoors − perhaps enjoying an afternoon swim or a romantic dinner for two − while little ones can drift off to sleep indoors in air-conditioned comfort within earshot. Each suite also features creature comforts including a coffee/tea maker, television, DVD / CD player, refreshment centre and iron/ironing board. In addition, The Fairmont Royal Pavilion offers babysitting (at an additional charge) for babies and toddlers, and children aged 5 years old and under eat free at Palm and Taboras restaurants when ordering from the children’s menu.

Travelling With Older Children If you’re travelling with older children, it’s good to know that there are complimentary daily activities and entertainment for children of all ages − perfect for school holidays. Activities are tailor-made according to the ages of the little ones staying at the time and there are seasonal activities such as making Easter Egg shaped pizzas. Typical activities for 4 to 12-year-olds might include sandcastle-building competitions, crafts, kite-flying, turtle trips and talent shows, while those aged 13 years old and over can learn new watersports with the team who will take teenagers around the bay and teach them about snorkelling, kayaking, Hobie cat sailing or Boogie-boarding, as well as beach cricket, soccer and tennis. A popular activity for the whole family is the Family Movie Time which takes place beneath the stars with popcorn and pizza to savour.*** In addition, children aged from 6 to 12 years old can either dine from the children’s menu, or receive a 50% discount on the regular menu at Palm and Taboras restaurants where the Fairmont brands’ Lifestyle Cuisine programme means that you’ll find traditional children’s favourites (such as chicken nuggets and pizza) have been given a healthy twist with the addition of fruits and vegetables, or alternative cooking methods. When it comes to accommodation, the Beachfront Junior Suites** which interconnect are a good option for families with children under 10 years old. Or, if you’re travelling in a large group, the villas may be a better option. Our Travel Consultants will be delighted to advise you.
