Wired. A family vacation with teenagers is a whole new ballgame especially when you’re talking about an age group that frequently would prefer to forget they even have parents. To give everyone some much-needed privacy and breathing room, there is Wired, a destination built exclusively for teens. The lounge is equipped with both arcade and console video games as well as a snack bar, where they can fill up on delicious parent-approved treats. And because no self-respecting teen these days can be disconnected for long, teenagers can surf the web while streaming their favorite shows all in the comfort of their private lounge.
Playroom. While Mom and Dad are off enjoying the many amenities, the Moon Palace's smallest guests have their own special mini-resort to enjoy. It's so amazing that kids won't even notice the parents have gone and truth be told, the grown-ups might not want to leave either. For starters, the "Playroom" boasts various game rooms outfitted with such awesome activities as Xbox, a simulated race area with "ezy rollers," and even an arcade. Children love to play dress up and there's no better spot for this than the fashion room. There's also a beauty salon and dollhouse area, in addition to a theater, two playgrounds (one indoor and one outside), a mini-soccer field and a pirate boat and sandbox. With so many play areas plus classes in piñata making, building sand castles, cooking, and balloon sculpture–and that's just for starters–the "Playroom" is sure to delight.

FlowRider. War may have sung about the Low Rider, but they couldn't have imagined the FlowRider, where surfers young and old can pit their skills against those of their friends and family. With two lanes of endless waves, the FlowRider pumps thousands of gallons of water over a riding surface giving everyone the chance to Hang 10. Adults and those with some surfing experience can carve a turn and cut back on their own unbroken wave, while kids can body board across the waves for hours of fun.
Spa. Who are we kidding? With children happily ensconced in Wired and the Playground, it’s time for some parent pampering and a couple’s massage at the resort's world-class spa. A hydrotherapy treatment is the first stop and from there couples can enjoy a relaxing treatment such as massages, bath therapies, facials and body scrubs, in one of the three couples massage rooms, each with a view of the golf course or lake. Two master spa suites provide balneotherapy, as well.
