LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, amplifies the family vacation with a new partnership with KidsDreamFactory to provide themed glamping experiences customized for children at the resort.
The three theme options include Mermaid, Nautical and Beach, and include a hand-crafted tent, mattress, themed décor, breakfast tray and more. While activity options for families abound, this new partnership brings a magical experience into the guestroom for kids.
After guests choose from one of the themes — Under the Sea, Anchors Away and Fun in the Sun — the package includes a tent; plush mattress; sheets; ultra-plush blankets and pillows; themed décor with cushions, lights and rugs; a breakfast tray with a customized amenity or keepsake; and an overnight kit with a toothbrush and toothpaste. The experience begins at $199, with a la carte pricing for any upgrades or additional décor. To book, contact the resort at 239 597 3123.
