Luxury Family Holidays

Sometimes nothing but the best will do: the best scenery, the best decor, the best food, the best facilities and the service.

The good news is that more and more luxury hotels worldwide are considering the requirements of their guests who are travelling with children, and offering facilities and services which add to the holiday experience for the whole family, yet require no compromise on the luxury experience offered to adults.

It might be baby listening, early suppers, crèches, dedicated childrens pools, playgrounds, restaurants, pureed organic babyfood, luxury family rooms, top quality baby equipment, childrens tv/dvds/playstations etc - or all of the above and more.

At babygoes2 we're delighted to have been able to help so many of our visitors find the perfect luxury holiday. Each destination and hotel has something different to offer both adults and children, and the experience we've built over the years enables us to suggest and recommend the right resort for each family. We get excellent feedback from our visitors giving us in depth comments on the various options - and we get to hear about all the new family friendly luxury options sooner than most, so we're often able to offer priority booking for the most popular resorts.

All of the luxury hotels and villas that we recommend can be found in our luxury section, on www.babygoes2.com/g_luxhotels.asp. Below however, you'll find some of our favourite recommendations as a starting point , along with one or two brand new options for 2006. We've focused mainly on the options with childcare, although there are plenty of excellent luxury resorts which offer babysitting - and for many parents this is all they require. Luxury villas with childcare and /or cook can also be an ideal luxury family solution, and you'll find example of these, plus a variety of other luxury options for each of the destinations below on www.babygoes2.com/g_luxhotels.asp.

For recommendations for your luxury holiday, just contact us on www.babygoes2.com/contactus.html, giving us details of your approx dates of travel, number in your family, any preferred destinations and preferences and a vague idea of budget range, and we'll come back to you with some suggestions.
