Villa Suriyawatta, Sri Lanka: When your family finds out where you are going on holiday, they will all want to come. But that’s fine, as this beach retreat comes with five bedrooms and close to an acre of lawn to stretch out on. Kids can make a splash in your private saltwater infinity pool, or run across the beach, pull on their fins and explore the coral reef that lines the shore. This is one holiday where you’re sure to come back fully rested as the villa comes with a team of six staff, including your own private chef.
One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives: Arrive by luxury yacht and continue to feel like a VIP to the moment you leave. Choose a Two-Villa Residence with Pool, and you get two rustic suites, which surround a private pool. You don’t need to spend hours transporting the family to the beach, as your villa is right on it. There are three kids clubs – one for juniors, one for tweens and one for teens plus two tennis courts, a climbing wall and artist’s studio. And then there’s the food! But it’s not just mum and dad who will have a gastronomic experience – the kids will too as the resort has created a Kids’ Only Menu.
Soneva Kiri, Koh Kood, Thailand: When is a kids’ club not a kids’ club? When it’s a cinema, art observatory and a jungle gym. The Den at Soneva Kiri really takes some beating. And if you can tear your kids away from here, you can go on a Father and Son Koh Kood Fishing Trip or a Mother and Daughter Spa session and a chocolate tasting experience for everyone. So if that’s the entertainment what is the accommodation like? Well, how about a five-bedroom Sunset Ocean View Reserve with a private pool, waterslide, fitness room and spa?
