What a brilliant idea to take the family on a tropical holiday! But horrors! The cost! And who can guarantee the kids won’t get bored and whiney when you are there?
Parents planning a holiday overseas, wanting to give the children a memorable time, always face these difficulties.
Centara Hotels&Resorts, however, has a family-friendly policy that can help overcome these problems.
The group is Thailand’s largest operator of hotels and resorts, with properties at all the main destinations in the kingdom, and also in Vietnam, Bali, the Maldives, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka.
Half-a-dozen hotel brands are available, which covers a very wide spectrum of room rates, and depending on the room type, up to two children can stay free when sharing their parents’ room and bedding. If the room rate includes breakfast, the kids are also included.
Again depending on the room type, an extra bed can be provided for a nominal payment, twin-bed rooms always feature two double beds, and larger family rooms and suites may include bunk beds or sofa beds.
So, all this brings down the cost of the accommodation.
Suites and villas of course offer bags of space, and many carry the option of a private plunge pool on the balcony or in the garden, which will keep the youngsters happy no matter what time of the day or evening.
A busy child is a happy child, and the larger Centara properties all have a professionally-supervised Kids’ Club that has separate zones for the youngsters and the teens, with activities and games suitable for both.
The leisure facilities of the Centara resorts offer plenty for all members of the family. In Pattaya and Phuket, there are resorts offering gigantic water parks with slides, lazy rivers, waterfalls, and children’s pools, plus direct access to the beach.
On the island of Samui are Centara resorts that along with the beach can offer island hopping and elephant trekking, and at Krabi among the most exciting activities are the boat rides out to the limestone islands in the bay, many of them riddled with caves and featuring a central lagoon that can be easily explored by kayak.
In Vietnam, Centara has two beachside properties that are suitable for families, with one of them at Da Nang being close enough to Marble Mountain, and the historic cities of Hue and Hoi An, to offer easy day excursions for the slight possibility the kids may get bored with the beach.
At the Maldives, the Centara Grand not only has its own lagoon and reef, it also has its own shipwreck, and the snorkeling here for everyone, youngsters included, is magnificent.
Centara resorts at Bali, Mauritius, and Sri Lanka all have plenty for the kids to do with superb beaches and countryside to explore.
It all adds up to a happy holiday for the family, and a happy bank manager.
