Dad Playing With Kids In Pool In Luxury Hotel

Kid-Friendly Luxury Hotels

As we settle into summer, many of us find ourselves booking last-minute getaways to dip into a pool and escape the heat. It can sometimes feel daunting to find a luxury hotel that is welcoming to families with young children; this week, we’ve gathered a selection of our favorite luxury hotels that don’t just allow children but truly cater to them, ensuring that your vacation is one the entire family will remember.

Carmel Valley Ranch, Carmel-By-The-Sea, California

First you’ll settle into one of their spacious suites – all suites include a fireplace, a spacious outdoor deck, a mini-fridge for milk and little ones’ snacks, and many of the family suites include fire pits, outdoor tubs, dining tables on the deck, and private living rooms. Next head to the Family Pool (there are several adults-only pools too if you need some quiet time!) to enjoy a Junior-Olympic-size pool and hot tub, ping-pong tables, playground, wading pool & splash pad, and convenient access to the Adventure Den. The Adventure Den offers daily children’s activities (half and full-day options) plus board games, lawn games, and a snack center. Finally to make traveling with little ones even smoother, the hotel offers a “Munchkin Menu” – a full list of items you can order for the room, including pack n’ plays, hiking strollers, bottle warmers, diaper genies, and more.

Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Along the beautiful shoreline of Massachusetts, you’ll enjoy private cottages with outdoor decks, 24/7 room service, as well as 24/7 concierge service. During the day, lounge by the pool, take the complimentary daily shuttle into a neighboring town, or charter a boat for the whole family to enjoy. They also offer a lovely children’s program, which offers children the option of playtime in the clubhouse and outdoor amphitheater or participation in a rotating array of activities, including Summer Olympics and Chef-for-a-day. Head to the gorgeous Twenty-Eight Atlantic (the first and only Forbes Five-Star restaurant in the region) for a wonderful dinner by the water, including elaborate table-side mocktails (and cocktails, of course) for the children to marvel at. The hotel offers several more casual dining options throughout the property, as well.

Four Seasons Oahu at Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii

Here, there are several luxurious suites to choose from, all with sweeping views and private decks, and many with private dining rooms, pantries, and plunge pools. For children, the hotel offers a kid’s club, a day camp, and babysitting services, as well as a multitude of adventures your family can enjoy together, including snorkeling sessions, hula classes, and lei making. The hotel also offers kid-friendly amenities, such as child-size bathrobes, diapers (and swim-diapers), bottle warmers, cribs, and strollers.

Anassa Hotel, Cyprus

This spectacular hotel offers everything a discerning traveler looks for – excellent food, stunning views and architecture, and top-notch concierge – but here, the hotel staff also goes above and beyond to make sure the hotel is family-friendly and well-equipped to seamlessly support both parents and little ones. The Kid’s Club accepts children as young as 4-months old and offers unique activities for kids of all ages, including pottery lessons, baking, treasure hunts, and archeological digs. Enjoy kid-friendly spa services, early restaurant seatings, and multi-lingual nannies trained to help families with whatever they may need. Book the “Baby Go Lightly” service and your room will be stocked with everything you’ll need to make your stay smooth, including car seats for airport transfers, potties, high chairs, carriers, baby bathtubs, dry/swimming diapers, swimming aids, toys, and more.
