Age Specific / Baby

When choosing a family destination this summer, check out this list of age-appropriate hotels and resorts for the little ones.


For families with babies, The Chatwal in New York treats you and the little ones like VIP guests, hence the name, ViBabies. Upon arrival, ViBabies and families receive an amenity kit of Honest Oh Baby! products including all-organic toiletries, a stuffed animal, a storybook for bedtime and a variety of all-natural baby purées available from the kitchen.


For those with toddlers, The Chatwal’s Family Excursion Package boasts a variety of offers including a 25 percent discount on a second room and complimentary meals for the kids, ages 12 and younger. When booking the Family Excursion Package, guests enjoy a family movie night, turn-down refreshments, in-room children’s puppet theater and special-edition Margherita Missoni backpack.

Young Children

Kids can enjoy natural beauty and the wild terrain of the safari, too, with the all-new andBeyond Bateleur Camp in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Sign up for the fun and educational WILDchild program and enjoy the sites while the kids learn all about exotic animals, tracking, wildlife conservation and survival skills like building a fire.

Kids and kids only enjoy La Petit Réserve at La Réserve Geneva, in Genève, Suisse, Switzerland. Kids aged 13 and younger enjoy age-appropriate games, educational lessons and a variety of entertainment in the relaxing tree house just for them, no parents allowed.

Kid’s clubs are a lifesaver for active families looking to explore, but the Domaine de Manville in Les Baux-de-Provence, France, provides a world all its own for the kids. Escape to two bohemian-style caravans where the kids can handpick fruit from the garden and make homemade jam.

For more culinary fun, bring the kids to the White Elephant Hotel in Nantucket Harbor, Nantucket, Mass. Your future bakers will love the Mini Chef program where they’ll decorate cookies, cupcakes and learn special tricks of the trade during weekly sessions this summer. Rest up while the kids enjoy an in-room camping experience complete with faux indoor campfires and teepees.
