Family Friendly Destinations You Need to Visit These School Holidays

With school holidays edging closer, there’s more and more pressure to plan a family friendly holiday that is both fun for the kids and ultimately relaxing for you and your partner. We’ve picked three holiday destinations that tick these boxes time and time again!

Bali, Indonesia

For years, Bali has been the go-to family-friendly destination close to home. With an unspoiled landscape of volcanoes, tranquil waterfalls, scenic rice paddies and tropical beaches, Bali is the epitome of an unplug-and-unwind holiday that the kids will enjoy too.

Who says you should pick family or five-star? We think you deserve both! The all-inclusive Luxury Escapes deal at the Royal Tulip Saranam will let you save up to 75{a6f918a28d0c453b79f16bf9c353d89c8f4246dd535f28283d5e631e0d8f251e} on five or seven nights of family fun with the Family Wellness package.

Two kids under 12 can stay free of charge and receive breakfast too! Plus, you’ll get all meals included, a private transfer to or from the airport, two 60-minute massages and two 30-minute reflexology treatments for two, a daily minibar refill and much more!

Take advantage of all the amazing activities! Take an included yoga class, indulge in complimentary guided meditation, explore the fantastic hiking trails or spend a day at Tree Top Adventure Park with the kids! Then, visit Ulun Danu Beratan – a water temple considered to be one of Bali’s most significant and beautiful temples and is easily accessible from the resort.

Fiji, South Pacific

Escape with the family this school break to one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations. With flights departing major Australian cities daily and a general flight time of under five hours, it is no wonder why this tropical paradise is the ultimate choice for family fun. Azure waters, white sandy beaches, exciting water activities and a plethora of colourful sea life, Fiji boasts a holiday that you’ll love just as much as the kids.

Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa combines luxury with kid-friendly fun. The hotel features a fun children’s pool and a Little Chief’s Club – where activity coordinators entertain the kids at the beach, pool or playground, while you sit back and relax. But there’s more! The resort’s ‘children’s meal plan’ means that two children under the age of 12 enjoy an all-day complimentary buffet.

The resort’s water park is the ultimate family activity. Measuring 25 metres by 25 metres, this on-land and over-water “park” sits on Fiji’s gorgeous Coral Coast and features hours of fun activities to be had by the whole family – and it’s only available for registered hotel guests!

Gold Coast, Australia

If you’re looking for an adventurous fun-loving family holiday, look no further than Australia’s very own Gold Coast. With endless dining options, outback adventure tours, jet boat extreme rides, theme parks, dolphin and whale-watching cruises and island adventures, there really is something for every member of the family – plus a lot to enjoy together!

Enjoy a two-bedroom ocean view apartment at the Artique Surfers Paradise and save up to 45{a6f918a28d0c453b79f16bf9c353d89c8f4246dd535f28283d5e631e0d8f251e} with Luxury Escapes. Choose the Family & Friends Upgrade and enjoy enough room for four people (and bring an infant under 2, free of charge!), unlimited premium Foxtel and complimentary parking. Plus, receive a complimentary ‘Passport 2 Fun’, which includes gift vouchers to Endota Spa, dining discounts and discounted adventurous fun!

Take the family on a Jetboat Extreme ride. This fun-for-the-family activity is a 55-minute thrilling jet boat ride departing from the heart of Surfers Paradise and passing scenic islands, waterfront mansions, the Palazzo Versace hotel and more. It’s the ultimate family adventure.
