The 3 Nominees for Family Innovation
Song Saa, Koh Rong Archipelago, Cambodia
Imaginative activities are taken to a whole new level at this incredible private-island resort, with pirate adventures, Robinson Crusoe message-in-a-bottle trails, knee boarding and treasure trails, plus snorkelling with Phytoplankton to see them change colour (a natural phenomenon only seen in a few places in the world, at certain times of year).
Baobab Suites, Tenerife, Spain
It’s kind of annoying to have to trek back and forth to the beach on holiday, when you’ve got a perfectly good sun-trap balcony for your lounger! Which is why this Tenerife hotel came up with the genius solution of sunken sandpits on your balcony. Kids can bucket and spade for hours; parents can just relax. Win-win.
Country Kids, Languedoc, France
At this thought-of-everything countryside farm, a babysitter comes to your apartment one evening so that you and your partner can dine out at the fantastic local restaurant. They then pick up your child(ren) at 7am the next morning and take them to a breakfast pyjama party, meaning you can have a lie-in! Red-wine over-consumption positively endorsed.
