With the long school holidays coming up in July, South African families are starting to plan their family-friendly trips abroad. If you’re looking for a holiday destination that caters to both adults and kids, then look no further than the gorgeous island of Mauritius.
In particular, the Beachcomber resorts – Victoria Beachcomber, Shandrani Beachcomber, Canonnier Beachcomber and Mauricia Beachcomber – are among the best Mauritius resorts for families because they offer amazing kids clubs with tons of activities designed specifically for little ones. Let’s take a look at what these resorts have to offer!
Each of the four Beachcomber resorts offers its own unique and exciting kids club where children can play and explore in a safe environment under the supervision of experienced and friendly staff members. At each resort, there is an indoor play area as well as an outdoor play area where kids can get some fresh air and exercise while having fun. Activities are tailored according to age groups so that all children can enjoy themselves in whatever way suits them best. There are even baby-sitting services available if parents want an afternoon off for a spa treatment or time to connect over a candlelit dinner.
The wide range of activities offered by these resorts include swimming lessons, art classes, cooking classes, beach volleyball tournaments and more. And if your kids don’t feel like taking part in organised activities, they can also just hang out with friends or play video games in the game room. Best of all? All activities are free! That’s right – you won’t have to pay anything extra for your children to participate in any activity they choose!
If you have very little ones (under 2s), then you’ll be glad to know that at each of Beachcomber’s 4-star properties there is a baby care area which includes welcoming facilities and amenities like a nappy changing table, bottle warmer and steriliser, a microwave for warming meals and a fridge stocked with some complimentary items. They are also easily accessible from the main public areas.
All four resorts provide age appropriate activities based on what’s best suited to each age group. At Victoria Beachcomber Resort & Spa, kids aged 5-11 years old can join in on fun games like Coconut Bowling or participate in competitions like Kahoot quizzes at their Kool Club House while parents relax poolside or enjoy a spa treatment. Those aged 12-17 years old can join in on exciting water sports such as tubing or banana boat rides at their Teen Zone while those young adult guests over 18 can get an adrenaline rush by participating in paintballing or ziplining at their Xtreme Zone.
The safety of your children while they engage in these activities is paramount to all four Beachcomber resorts so they have implemented strict protocols when it comes to supervision and regulations. Each resort has trained personnel who are responsible for supervising all kids club related activities so parents can feel confident about leaving their children in good hands while they enjoy their own holiday experience.
Furthermore, there are additional staff members present during peak hours who are specifically assigned to monitor the safety of each activity station throughout the day. It is also important to note that all four resorts are certified as “Kids Friendly” which means that each property meets specific standards regarding child safety and protection policy management as well as quality assurance criteria when providing services for young guests between 3-17 years old.
In addition to great kids clubs, all four resorts also offer luxurious accommodation options, fine dining experiences and world-class spa treatments – perfect for when mom and dad need some rest and relaxation after a busy day with the kids! And speaking of busy days – don’t forget about all the amazing attractions on the island itself. From zip-lining through tropical forests to snorkelling with colourful fish in crystal clear waters – Mauritius continues to wow South African visitors each year.
