Travelling with children can be challenging. Ask any parent; we all love our kids, but the constant pressure to keep them active, entertained and, most importantly, safe, can significantly raise the stress levels. With this in mind, it’s important that hotels and resorts are intuitive to the needs of parents. Many properties nowadays provide kids’ clubs, but is this enough?

In the modern era of multi-generational travel and experiential holidays, hotels need to devise even more innovative ways of catering for the entire family. From creative children’s programmes to interesting activities, hotels in Asia are raising the bar for family stays. Here are a few examples of hotels and resorts that have found new ways of keeping both parents and children fulfilled throughout their stay…

Some hotels accept children; others embrace them. At Angsana Laguna Phuket, kids have such an extensive array of activities to choose from, the only problem is trying to fit them all in. The vast Tree House Kids Club provides complimentary care for youngsters aged four to 15, with more than 60 (yes, sixty!) educational classes, activities and games, from treasure hunts and face-painting to cooking classes.

Luxury hotel groups don’t always roll out the welcome mat for children, but Four Seasons is bucking this trend. Four Seasons Resort Langkawi’s specially trained staff will keep children aged 4 to 12 fully entertained throughout their stay, with activities that aim to educate as well as entertain.

Nothing brings families closer together than food, and Furama Resort Danang invites parents and kids to share memorable moments with its Vietnamese cooking classes. In the company of the hotel’s chefs, parents and kids visit the Nursery Garden to pick fresh herbs, before learning about traditional ingredients and discovering how to create authentic Vietnamese dishes. And of course, guests will be able to taste all the dishes they have prepared!
