Southern Thailand is also an archipelago of islands nestled in crystal clear water Among them, some are still virgins, wild and make you dream of escapades far from the civilized world. It is precisely in a private bay on the Thai island of Koh Koodd that the Soneva Kiri hotel is located.
Lost in the lush vegetation of the tropics, the luxurious cabins of this unique resort blend into the trees to offer you gourmet dinners served by acrobats. Natural materials and bamboo architecture create a simple and warm rustic-chic atmosphere. The whole family is invited to live an eco-responsible experience, in harmony with nature, with their heads in the stars and their feet in the China Sea.
The hotel also has many facilities to make it easier for children to stay, including a kids-club that rivals inventiveness to entertain and educate the youngest. Special mention for the stargazing workshop organized each evening with a professional astronomer!
For the whole family, the experience is completely new when it comes to eating at Tree Pod, one of the 4 restaurants in Soneva Kiri. Imagine a nest, a comfortable basket of braided wood, hung on the trees for a dinner brushing the foliage! Suspended at 6 meters high, the Gulf of Thailand lazily extends its curves to your feet while the service is done by zip line. Panorama and gastronomy… of high flight!
Treat yourself with a bewildering visual and sensorial experience at the Grecotel Athena Pallas, a truly unusual place, far from the traditional hotels and that bets on a completely atypical decoration. Your children will be enchanted by the art pieces that cover their bedroom walls! Discover spacious and luminous accommodation offering an incredible comfort and a tantalising atmosphere. Each of them are all unique.
Ideally situated at the heart of Athens, it will be the opportunity for your family to discover this mythical city filled with secrets and mysteries. Visit the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the Propylaeum, the Erechteion, the Athena Nike Temple or the Herodes Atticus Theater, all iconic places from Athens. Finally, revel in a delicious gastronomy within one of the restaurants of this hotel, that, much like all the bedrooms, all offer a particular atmosphere.
Somewhere between the red moors of Ireland stand the crenellated towers of the former medieval Ashford Castle. Dated from the 13th century, this fortress, steeped in history, is said to have welcomed Georges V, the Prince of Wales. Its opulent interiors in a classic style plunge the visitor into a very « royal » atmosphere. Between the canopy beds, the upholstered chairs and the crystal chandeliers, one almost has the impression that a crowned head will emerge around a corridor…
For its little guests, Ashford Castle is also full of surprises. Depending on the corners and corridors, they love to discover the castle thanks to the orientation map provided by the establishment. A real treasure hunt! Even more surprising, the « Lego Menu » is an exclusive service of Ashford Castle, which allows your child to choose different types of Legos. After placing an order, they arrive on a large silver tray directly in the room of the small budding builders. A custom-made service off the beaten track.
The old stones of the Ashford walls have retained their medieval charm. In this setting worthy of knights, the whole family can take part in a unique activity: training falcons, eagles and owls in the Hawk Walk, Ireland’s oldest raptor training school. Tame a falcon in the shade of the dungeons: masterly!
Unusual holidays are usually full of surprises but are even more successful when they are well prepared. Before you embark on new adventures, take a look at our very complete checklists designed according to your children’s age!
Have a safe trip!
