Travel Tips

No matter where your family is headed this fall or winter, you can find luxury suites all over the world that are suitable for traveling families with children of all ages.

 

Interested in visiting Napa for the fall wine harvest? You don’t have to leave the kids behind just because this destination is primarily geared toward the 21-and-over crowd. Stay in a Meadowood Hillside Lodge suite, with your choice of one to four bedrooms, for a great homebase for your explorations. Your accommodations offer plenty of room, plus your own cozy stone fireplace, kitchen for whipping up snacks at all hours and a private balcony for views of the 250 acres of rolling hills. When you decide it’s time to leave the property, just pack up and visit the nearby Bothe Napa Valley State Park, 13th-century Castello di Amorosa or di Rosa art museum.

 

If you have your sights set on a warm, Caribbean destination once the weather gets chilly, pick a luxury resort that caters to kids, too. While Jamaica’s GoldenEye is known as the once-home of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, there are kid-friendly accommodation options suitable for those who’ve yet to discover this particular breed of cinematic greatness. Book the Fleming Villa for a Hollywood-worthy setting that offers a private beach, pool and a movie screening room. If you can drag your kids away from the sand or their own private movie theater (which we’re sure will be a hit), you can book a snorkeling excursion, nature walk or kids yoga session.

 

Further south, UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa in Brazil offers parents of older kids a well thought-out accommodation option. The Zé e Zilda “casa” includes a main house suite, but then also a garden suite separated from the main house by a private patio and pergola. Everyone gets a little bit of privacy, but can still come together for some quality time. The hotel also offers capoeira training, so you can learn the Bahian sport that’s a mix of martial arts, acrobatics and dance. Practice in the hotel’s private studio, or head out to a local cultural center for group training.

 

Across the pond, make like the royal family and indulge in a little luxury at The Kensington. Book the three-bedroom Knightsbridge Suite, where amenities include in-room afternoon tea served either in suite or on your balcony. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide great views of London. After the kids are asleep, parents can enjoy a cuddle by either of the two decorative fireplaces, or a soak in the marble bathroom’s Jacuzzi tub.
