There’s an art to the perfect family holiday and it’s all in the balance: making sure it’s well-tailored to suit parents and their child’s age group.

As parents know well, what makes a great trip with a tiny toddler is different to what suits an older child – and these requirements continually change as families grow and expand. From luxury hotels that meet and cater to all your baby’s needs, to resorts and travel operators that have perfected the art of keeping teenagers entertained, these are some of the best family-getaways for children of all age groups.

Eden Roc Cap Cana, a Relais & Chateaux hotel in the Caribbean, offers an ultra-luxe family holiday experience and is focussed on making sure even their tiniest guests have a wonderful stay. The hotel’s VIBabies Package offers essentials from brands such as 4Moms and Baby Einstein meaning that family villas are equipped with bottle warmers, baby bathtubs, toys, wipes, and a playpen as well as a pool alarm, child-friendly menus and sun-proof accessories (sun cream, aloe vera gel, sunglasses and hats). Parents can enjoy two hours of babysitting included within the package too; the hotel is completely geared towards helping the whole family relax. Guests are assigned a lifestyle concierge to ensure the perfect stay, whether organising spa treatments (including specialist treatments for new mums), bespoke exercise classes, or day trips in and around the beautiful island. Plus the dining – for all ages – is world class.
