Family Fun December 20, 2018

Get the whole family together and escape to a destination that promises adventure and relaxation in equal measure. On family holidays, it’s important to choose carefully, so grown ups can enjoy some time to themselves with spa treatments, gourmet dining or a sporting activity while kids and teens are kept busy making friends at supervised clubs. Time spent together is equally important, so we’ve picked out some of our favourite places for family fun.

Saint Peter's Bay Resort & Port Ferdinand Luxury Marina & Residences, Barbados

For holidays with all the family, it’s often practical to have living areas and kitchen facilities but this often means compromising on all the luxury services and amenities of a typical resort holiday. A concierge, kids’ club, restaurants within easy reach and daily housekeeping are all conveniences we appreciate while trying to relax and switch off from day-to-day routines.

That’s why families appreciate Port Ferdinand and Saint Peter’s Bay which offer palatial villa-style living with the benefit of all the comforts and luxuries you’d expect from a first-rate hotel. There’s a complimentary water taxi between each resort so you can enjoy the facilities of both, including the three wonderful restaurants and Port Ferdinand’s tranquil spa.

SAINT PETER'S BAY



The glamorous beachfront homes at Saint Peter’s Bay are each adorned with terraces and spa pools. Children will love the lagoon-style swimming pool, complimentary non-motorised watersports and fun-filled children’s zone for ages five and up (under-fives are welcome with an adult). One of the highlights of Saint Peter’s Bay is the turtle conservation programme where guests can snorkel with, and help with the release of, turtles.

Port Ferdinand is based on its own glitzy marina, and each of the villas is meticulously decorated, with a marble finish and coral stone walls adding to the grandeur. Each villa features its own individual yacht berth and the resort even features an on-site yacht concierge service. While kids and teens are having fun doing their own thing, adults can vanish to the Sandbox Tree Spa or the newly-opened Nikki Beach club located on property.
