Why Families And Wellness Holidays Aren't Mutually Exclusive20/05/2022, Healing Holidays
Gone are the days when Spas and Resorts were only available to adults, and those with kids who couldn’t leave them behind, felt left out and unable to enjoy a relaxing wellness holiday.
Modern wellbeing resorts have the entire family in mind, designing dedicated spaces, programmes, activities and training specialist staff to look after each and every family member, tailoring it to age, interests and any health concerns.
While a solo, or adult-only, wellness break definitely has enormous benefits for your mind, body and soul, you can also reap the same benefits when going on a wellbeing retreat as a family at some of our award-winning wellness retreats. It’s no longer an either-or situation.
Wellness Programmes For All Ages
At family-friendly resorts such as Zulal Wellness Resort, you can find specially designed wellness programmes for each member of your family that include tailored age-appropriate activities, meals and treatments. This means that you can all improve your health and wellbeing without feeling like you are on top of each other.
A Family Bonding Experience
At Amatara, they have wellness programmes where parents and children can participate in a range of interactive group activities together to help strengthen family bonds and improve overall health. Family group activities available include natural soap making, yoga, and cooking classes.
Separate Family Areas
Family-friendly resorts take into account their guests’ needs at the design and construction stage. For example, Zulal Wellness Resort By Chiva Som in Qatar is split into two resorts, with one area of the resort reserved entirely for families and family wellness, so you can feel totally at peace and not have to worry about disturbing other guests who do not have children with them.
Family Spa Time
Spas are de-facto “adult-only”, but not at family resorts, such as Schloss Elmau, which has three spas featuring pools, saunas and steam baths dedicated entirely to families. This means that you can enjoy the spa facilities without worrying about annoying those guests not travelling with children.
State-Of-The-Art Kid’s Clubs
Verdura Resort in Sicily has a lovely Kid’s Club that offers cooking, science, arts & crafts, culture, an array of sports and much more. It’s overseen by their specialised team and Verdù the hedgehog mascot.
Kids love water, and family resorts know how to create safe and fun water spaces for them. At Forte Village Resort, they have an Acquapark, where children of all ages can play safely. A pirate ship, water cannons, mini slides and a soft anti-slip floor in the water games area are available to younger children. For older children, there are six full-sized slides in a dedicated pool area and behind the Aquapark you can also find a 5-lane Olympic sized swimming for those children who want to practice and improve their swimming skills.
Childcare For All Ages
Family resorts have dedicated childcare, entertainment, education and nutrition programmes designed for kids of all ages, from 0 to 18 years old. Your babies can be looked after 24h/day, while your teens can enjoy sports and arts clubs at Resorts such as Verdura and Schloss Elmau.
