It happens ever year doesn’t it… the Easter holidays creep up on us. If that’s the case for you, and you haven’t yet booked an Easter break, don’t worry there are still some great options available!
A short haul option that’s perfect for families with children of all ages is Pine Cliffs in Portugal. This family resort offers an excellent children’s club catering for children aged 6 months to 13yrs – giving you some precious time to spend enjoying the spa, gym, yoga, pilates… or of course, just relax! Other resort facilities for children include a children’s pool, 18 hole mini crazy golf course, bouncy castle, basketball and games room.
Another great choice in Portugal is Epic Sana, a kid’s club, baby centre and babysitting service make this ideal for families. Rooms and suites are spacious too, and the kid’s pool and play area are perfect to burn off some energy during the day!
The Spanish islands are always a safe bet, and we’re big fans of Hotel Botanico in Tenerife. This resort offers a vast ranges of activities from daily fitness classes to tennis, golf and scuba diving – you’ll also have access to the Thermal Circuit in The Oriental Spa Garden offering an impressive selection of spa and beauty treatments.
Finally for short haul, there are amazing discounts available at Forte Village in Sardinia – with 25% off 4* hotel accommodation and two free kids places. Forte Village comprises eight hotels, suites and villas, and 20+ bars and restaurants. There’s a vast range of sports facilities for children and teens (basketball, tennis, football and more). And, for those looking to relax, you can enjoy spa treatments in the world-class Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa.
If you’re happy with a slightly longer flight time then the weather in Morocco is beautiful in April. Our pick here is the Capaldi, a truly beautiful boutique hotel located between Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains. This one is for couples or those with older children though, it’s over 12s only. The Capaldi offers laid-back luxury with elegant bedrooms, two pools, a spa, cinema and a French-inspired restaurant.
Our first choice is only just long haul with a flight time of around 7 hours. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi is stunning, with miles of unspoilt beach to one side and Saadiyat Beach Golf Course to the other. Expect nothing short of pure-lux with butler service and a choice of fine dining options. The Athletic Club is also exceptional– it has a 25-metre lap pool, squash courts, and dedicated studios for yoga and spinning. And don’t forget the Iridium Spa, designed to offer guests the ultimate experience in relaxation and rejuvenation.
And finally, Windjammer Landing in St Lucia for those seeking an island escape suitable for the whole family. The calm waters are safe for kids to splash around in and the kids’ club offers activities ranging from arts and crafts to puppet shows and nature walks. A huge range of activities can be arranged by the hotel’s concierge including rainforest zip-lining, gondola tours, volcano tours, cycling, deep-sea fishing, dolphin & whale watching, kayaking, horseback riding and more. A truly special destination to make memories that will last a lifetime.
