School vacations come around more often than not, and planning the perfect family getaway can be stressful – especially when the kids want activity-filled adventure and parents need the down-time. Waiting for that itinerary to plan itself when you have children is tantamount to it never actually materialising.
Unless you have thought of it all – from interacting with other kids and a plethora of activities, you can forget that R&R time you had planned. But what if we told you that you didn’t have to be the ringmaster to your own circus? Imagine a vacation where your kids are entertained, you get to have that full body massage and sip on cocktails you can’t pronounce while everyone gets to enjoy an indulgent level of sumptuous luxury!
Let us do all the planning so that you can have the best of both worlds – happy kids and a relaxed mind and body. We have taken a hands-on approach with our family vacation itinerary that keeps your children in mind and focuses on keeping your whole family happy.
