Enjoy quality time at the best luxury family holiday destinations

Are you planning a trip away with your family? Holidays are the perfect opportunity to relax and put everyday life on pause. They also give you the chance to visit places you’ve never been to before or return to some of your favourite locations.

If you’re seeking inspiration for somewhere that will keep everyone entertained, take a look at our guide. Here, we help you whittle down your options by shining a spotlight on some of the best luxury family holiday destinations in the world.

Planning your family trip

One of the main factors to consider when arranging your holiday is considering who you’ll be travelling with. This is because where you head to for your family holiday is often dictated by the age and interests of the people in your party.

Do you have a toddler? Or are you a parent of teenagers? Perhaps you’re planning a multi-generational getaway? Striking the perfect balance is key here. You’ll need age-appropriate entertainment and provision on the journey, when you arrive and for the duration of your stay, whether that’s babysitting services and crèches, a full children’s programme, or outstanding dining and spa facilities for the adults.

Another key factor in choosing your destination is how you get there. At VistaJet, we arrange aircraft that are tailored to meet the needs of the whole family. Among the many delights on offer, there are in-flight programmes to keep the children happy and pampering for any pets you want to bring onboard.

With these factors in mind, you can take your pick from an array of locations that are ideal for everyone in your group. These are some of the best luxury family holiday destinations that are sure to tick the boxes.

Necker Island – British Virgin Islands

Crystal-clear waters and powdery white sands dotted with palm trees can be seen at every turn when you arrive at this captivating island in the Caribbean. Necker Island is an exclusive, luxurious location for those who want to while away the time in paradise. You might want to book a room or reserve the whole island so you can indulge your loved ones with a private stay in this glorious setting.

Whichever type of holiday you choose here, you’re sure to keep everyone occupied. Richard Branson, Necker Island’s owner, designed this stunning destination with families in mind. In fact, he wanted it to be his family’s holiday home and his children spent the school holidays here. This means the island was, and remains, a child-friendly place.

Necker Kids activity club offers activities such as pizza making and fun in the Beach Pool. Under-fives need to be accompanied by an adult, and with awesome adventures such as treasure hunts and beach Olympics, there’s sure to be something to keep your little ones entertained.

Verdura Resort – Sicily

For a family holiday at a luxe location, this decadent, sprawling Sicilian resort has it all. The brainchild of renowned hotelier Rocco Forte and designed by his sister, interior designer Olga Polizzi, Verdura is a truly lavish location for a holiday. Natural materials have been used in the architecture to blend it into its setting, complementing its surroundings.

And its surroundings are very special indeed. Sea views, a wild sand beach, and spa and golfing facilities are sure to keep those in your party happy.

For the younger people in your group, there’s Verduland, the kids’ club that offers fun activities such as tennis and water sports, as well as cookery and art. There are also services for little ones aged nought to three, and a 24-hour babysitting service is available if needed.

Laucala Private Island – Fiji

Escape to this private island in the South Pacific and take in dramatic rainforests, white sands, coconut plantations and luxurious surroundings. This exclusive tropical haven is a must for those seeking a stay at one of the best luxury family holiday destinations. It’s home to 25 Fijian-style villas set against a backdrop of volcanic mountains and overlooks majestic reefs.

Visitors to this 12-square-kilometre island can enjoy a range of activities, from water sports and walking tours to golf and horse riding. For something more sedate, there’s the spa that uses traditional Fijian therapies to provide relaxation.

For the children, there’s the kids’ club, which offers tailor-made activities to suit the age of your little ones, along with film nights. Teens are never likely to be bored here, either. Fishing, tennis and the many water sports are designed to keep older children busy, while the island itself is secure enough for them to explore.

Soneva Kiri – Thailand

A luxurious setting and eco-friendly design seamlessly combine at Soneva Kiri, a sophisticated and chic resort filled with secluded villas. Tucked within a tropical rainforest and located on a secluded island off the southern coast of mainland Thailand, this is a captivating resort made of sustainable materials, making it a special destination for those who want to be at one with nature.

There’s a lot to love here, from the wealth of experiences on offer, including snorkelling and cookery classes, to the villas themselves. No two villas are the same, but each offers a private retreat.

Younger visitors can head to The Den. This is a bamboo playground moulded into the shape of a manta ray. Here, professional childminders teach children to play Thai instruments and get them to create their own pieces of art. At The Eco Den, children aged one to five can play with toys and enjoy different activities. Again, childminders are on hand.
