Family Time With Elite Island Resorts
Most people think that once children come onto the scene, luxury vacations spent whiling away the hours on pristine Caribbean beaches with umbrella’d drinks become a thing of the past. Think again.
Elite Island Resorts Kidz Clubs mean that adults can relax in by the pool, take in a bevy of spa treatments or even enjoy a private, candlelit dinner for two, confident that their children are being well cared for by an experienced team of counselors who will ensure their vacation is every bit as enjoyable as their parents’.
Whether it’s baby’s first Caribbean vacation or a tween begrudging family togetherness time, Elite Island Resorts has it covered. No matter your child’s age or interests, each resort has numerous activities to please even the moodiest teen. The Verandah Resort & Spa, for example, is Antigua's newest, all inclusive, all-suite resort and was named one of the best Caribbean all-inclusive resorts for families in 2014 by Family Vacation Critic. It is home to Elite Island Resorts’ largest Kidz Club, featuring a huge jungle gym, mini-golf and children's splash pool. St. James’s Club, Morgan Bay located on St. Lucia, has a special Kid’s Pool with slides and shallow wading areas and two connecting beachfront free-form pools.
Splash pools and miles of beachfront perfect for building sand castles and testing out the new boogie board are the perfect way to spend quality family time.
Children ages 4 to 11 can take advantage of Caribbean-themed activities that will keep them happy and active. Among the activities on offer are treasure hunts, crab races, nature walks, swimming and snorkeling, limbo dancing, beach games and more. And, after a day spent crafting at the Kidz Club, little ones will proudly show parents their latest creations, be it a frame-worthy painting or a mask they made themselves. When evening comes, parents of the littlest vacationers can take advantage of in-room babysitting for an additional fee, while older children may want to take in dinner and a movie at the Kidz Club.
Teens can hang out and relax in their own space, too. With Ping-Pong and pool tables, games and sand volleyball courts, the Teen's Club is the place to be.
Family fun doesn’t stop with the Kidz’ Clubs. Guests can sail, snorkel or enjoy the extensive array of complimentary, nonmotorized water sports (instruction included). Want to take the family fun quotient up a notch? Challenging diving excursions -- even lessons for guests of every level of ability -- can be arranged for an additional charge with certified professional instructors.
Whether your family is seeking action or just wants to relax and be together, Elite Island Resorts is a great place to plan your next family vacation.
