Western & Oriental | 10 Aug, 2017

Beachside bliss in the Caribbean

Palm tree-lined beaches, warm sea, a fabulous climate and charming Caribbean hospitality create the ideal setting for a luxury family holiday. Each Caribbean island has its own character, and yet they all offer the same family friendly environment and some outstanding family resorts. There are plenty of activities to suit all ages - from swimming with the turtles in Barbados, to flying through the treetops on a zip-line in Saint Lucia and learning about the Mayan heritage in Mexico’s Mayan Riviera; whatever you fancy, there is a family adventure to be had in the Caribbean.

 

 

Sight-seeing in Cyprus

With over 300 days of sunshine a year and a magnificently beautiful landscape and culture, Cyprus is an idyllic location for a family holiday. Enjoy the traditional restaurants and sightseeing in the old city area of Limassol, explore the thirteenth century fort and lively port of Paphos, take a nature walk through the Polis nature reserve or, if you’re lucky, watch turtles hatch at the sheltered Pissouri Bay.

Thrills and spills in Dubai

Few destinations have put as much energy into providing man-made fun as Dubai. This proudly international and openly hedonistic country offers families a truly dynamic holiday, from desert safaris and beautiful beaches; to fantastic shopping, amazing restaurants and vibrant nightlife. There is a myriad of experiences for kids young and old, including KidsZania, the Ski Dubai Snow Park, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, Wild Wadi Water Park, Ice Rink at Dubai Mall and SEGA Republic theme park.

 

Seeing Orangutans in Borneo

Malaysia & Borneo contain over 20% of the world’s animal species, and with orangutans and Asian elephants native to the islands, it is the perfect place for a unique wildlife experience with the family. We can put together a holiday that is flexible and adaptable to your family's needs, whilst also taking in some of Malaysia’s most spectacular National Parks and allowing plenty of time for some relaxation at your luxury hotel.

 

Exploring nature in Mauritius

With its year-round warm climate, pristine white sandy beaches, warm tropical waters and lush greenery, the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is the perfect family getaway for some sunshine and relaxation. Natural sights not to be missed include Le Morne mountain and Black River Gorges National Park. The island is also home to an array of family-friendly luxury hotels offering a range of sporting activities - including several championship golf courses - along with boutique shopping and delicious cuisine.

 

 

Coastal walks in Portugal

With its warm Mediterranean climate, scenic coastline and turquoise waters, Portugal is the perfect family holiday destination. Full of family-friendly activities and only a three-hour flight from the UK, Algarve in the south of Portugal is ideal for a relaxed family holiday. The scenic coastline offers a range of outdoor activities including walking tracks, cycling, kayaking and surfing; as well as theme parks, zoos and dolphin watching.

 

USA Ranch Holidays

For the family holiday of a lifetime, travel to a ranch in the USA to experience the cowboys' way of life. Go on daily horse-riding excursions and camp out under the stars. Enjoy barbeques around the camp fire and tell ghost stories. End the family holiday in style in Las Vegas, with its rollercoaster rides, limitless swimming pools in dozens of beautiful hotels and endless shopping opportunities.

 

‘Walking on the moon’ in the Tenerife

For a family holiday the kids are guaranteed to enjoy, Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is the perfect destination. Don’t miss the chance to travel to the island’s centre and survey the eerie, lunar landscapes formed by volcanic eruptions many millennia before people arrived on the island’s shores. Home to beautiful colonial towns and volcanic mountains, Tenerife is also known for its water sports - windsurfing, sailing, whale and dolphin watching and, for the ultimate fun-filled day out, the Siam Water Park.

 

 

Encountering Asian elephants in Thailand

When you think of Thailand, you might think of pristine beaches, beautiful islands and plenty of relaxing by the pool. Our luxury unique experience offers you the real Thailand, deep in Khao Sok National Park. Glimpse rural life in the south and explore the mangrove forests by dinghy. At Elephant Hills you can see, touch and get up close to the endangered Asian elephant, learning about their lives and scrubbing, cleaning and watching them bathe. Travel through Thailand on one of our private and luxurious multi-centre holidays starting in Bangkok and finishing on a beautiful beach in Phuket.

 

Exploring the mountains of Oman

Located on the Gulf of Oman with over 1,000 miles of glorious Indian Ocean coastline, discover the sprawling natural landscapes of desert, mountains and beaches in this Middle Eastern gem. Oman is slower paced and more refined than the neighbouring Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and with rich cultural heritage, endless sunshine and wonderful resorts, it’s easy to see why the country is becoming increasingly popular with families.
