Travelling with young children shouldn’t mean that you have to compromise on either style or luxury. With a selection of impressive boutique hotels across the globe designed with kids in mind, there is an option for everyone. From an eco hotel in the heart of historic Amsterdam to a fabulous island resort in Abu Dhabi -and many options inbetween- when travelling stylishly with kids, you’re actually spoiled for choice.
Let kids learn about history, architecture and art with a city break in Old Amsterdam. Just minutes from the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, Conscious Hotel Museum Square prides itself on its design quality and eco credentials. With organic fair trade breakfasts, bike rentals, and furniture made of recycled materials, the hotel has been awarded the Green Key Gold for its efforts at sustainability. Complete with lobby and bedrooms filled with greenery, the Conscious is perfect for a family break.
If a trip to Sweden sounds more the thing, how about a mountain lodge stay in the ski resort of Åre? The Copperhill Mountain Lodge is the perfect destination for kids and families thanks to its forest setting, direct ski-in ski-out access, and bucketloads of fresh air. Grown-ups will appreciate the hot springs, sauna, and beauty and pampering treatments available in the spa, too.
Experience the best of the Middle East as a family with Israel’s Alexander Tel Aviv Hotel. Rather than a traditional family hotel, the Alexander offers comfortable design apartments, complete with private kitchenettes and rainfall showers. Set on Tel Aviv’s gorgeous Mediterranean sea front, the hotel boasts a rooftop terrace, and every day begins with a full Israeli buffet breakfast. Bikes and DVDs are available to borrow from reception, and with the buzzing city centre and the beach just minutes away, you’ll never be stuck for entertainment.
