The pandemic saw nearly 97 percent of newlyweds either postponing or canceling honeymoon plans. Now, many of these couples have children and seek to blend family travel with the honeymoon that never happened. This new combination of travel, known as familymoons, continues to grow as a trend in 2023.
Families wanting to plan a familymoon can venture anywhere, from a secluded luxury resort in the Dominican Republic to a private resort villa in Bali. Here are two resorts for some familymoon inspiration:
Marriott’s Bali Nusa Dua Terrace
This recently opened resort allows families to book their own personal villa. Located near the island’s beaches, marine life and golf courses, this property provides the space, privacy and chance to customize your familymoon vacation. Each villa boasts a spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen, separate bedrooms and patio with a private plunge pool. Families staying at these villas also enjoy access to co-located Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort, a 5-star hotel with six food and beverage venues, a full-service spa, four outdoor swimming pools and a kid’s club with all-day activities.
Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda
This property is the first and one of the only operating resorts in the undiscovered area of Miches. Book an oceanfront penthouse suite in the La Perla region. This suite features a rooftop terrace, multiple bedrooms and access to a private family pool and beachfront cabanas. While kids enjoy customized activities like flying trapeze, watching movies under the stars and visiting a chocolate speakeasy at the kid’s club, parents can relax at Zen Oasis, an adults-only area with a naturally filtered zen pool with a swim-up bar and hammocks. Families can enjoy group activities like paddleboarding, treetop yoga, snorkeling excursions and more.
