For families going away during the summer, a beach holiday means lots of fun for the kids, but also plenty of time to kick back and relax for parents. Accommodation wise, we have a handpicked portfolio of luxury villas that are by far the most relaxing choice. Complete with private staff including chefs who can whip up mouthwatering meals according to your tastes, these private villas provide an escape like no other. Sip a cocktail by your private pool while your children play catch in the garden nearby. The islands of Bali and Koh Samui offer the best weather at this time of year. Sepoi Sepoi and Sira Beach House on Bali’s neighbouring island of Lombok are very popular for families, with extensive grounds and a very calm beach.

The Four Seasons Koh Samui and the Four Seasons Bali at Jimbaran Bay are also loved by parents and kids alike for their Kid’s Clubs and range of activities including cooking classes, scuba diving and arts and crafts.

Elsewhere in the Far EastBorneo is a spectacle of amazing diving and teems with indigenous wildlife for all you nature lovers. For hiking fans, Mount Kinabalu presents a challenge that will whet any adventurer’s appetite. Sounds like too much work? Relax instead on Gaya Island’s beach, off the coast of Kota Kinabalu.

All of Lightfoot Travel’s holidays are tailor-made, so whatever your summer holiday preference, give us a call and we will find something that is perfectly suited to your family. Below find our top family-friendly beach properties this summer.
