Villas for Multi-generational families
We solve your 3G holiday dilemmas
We’ve been organising holidays for 40 years and know one of the trickiest things to get just right is the multi-generational villa holiday. Not only does a broad age range mean it’s harder to please everyone, but with a family trip the pressure is on for it to deliver.
With our little black book of impressive properties, we know how to make your villa holiday shine bright and give you winning ideas that you won’t find elsewhere. Here are a few of our favourite long-haul villas.
SIX SENSES ZIL PASYON - SEYCHELLES
With Zil Pasyon’s cliff-side residences that have three or four bedrooms, bringing your brood to the Seychelles is easier than ever.
Occupying a premium piece of paradise on Félicité Island, Zil Pasyon is a short hop by helicopter from Mahé. The stylish, elevated residences have sensational ocean views, backed by volcanic rock and jade-green foliage so you and your family will enjoy your own tropical hideaway, with a personal butler to help with everything from a private chef to childcare. The master bedroom has its own plunge pool plus there’s an additional pool – so plenty of space for everyone. If you ever feel like leaving your exotic enclave, explore the island’s many boulder-ﬂanked beaches, where turtles nest or visit La Digue Island for bicycle rides and stops at rum punch shacks.
"For adventurous families, take part in your own specially created treasure hunt which takes you through jungle, around granite promontories and into the sea."
Families who appreciate privacy but want a full range of activities to suit everyone; wellness-lovers looking for a heaven-on-earth spa.
COMO PARROT CAY - TURKS & CAICOS
A private island framed by the silkiest sand imaginable could be home for your next family holiday.
With a less-is-more approach, you’ll fall in love with the all-natural Caribbean seascapes and the pared-back villas at Parrot Cay, nestled in the lushly vegetated dunes which lead directly onto the bone-white beach. If privacy is your family’s thing, then the larger, hidden away beach residences with heated pools are ideal – there’s a reason so many celebrities come here to holiday. Families love dining in, especially with a skilled chef who will come directly to you. And with a cosseting round-the-clock team of staﬀ, every one of you will be made to feel special. Whether it’s a green juice and a barefoot run on the beach or sandcastles and a lobster lunch, this island will leave you with seriously good memories.
"Parrot Cay perfectly fuses that laid-back Caribbean vibe with five-star comfort and impeccable service. All you will have to worry about is how to spend your time here."
Young and old who seek a castaway vibe paired with low-key luxury. Perfect for ﬂy-and-ﬂop families and groups wanting to kick back in absolute paradise.
INIALA BEACH HOUSE - THAILAND
Changing the way we holiday, Iniala in Phuket has a problem-solving approach to typical family predicaments.
Firstly, with three, spacious three-bedroom villas which can be rented together, Iniala presents a luxurious solution to travelling en masse. All are sea-facing, set alongside a gorgeously tropical beach where crystalline water meets golden sand, but also have inﬁnity pools steps away. Inside, the chic villas are the epitome of sleek Asian design, each with their own spa. Hand over the reins on arrival: staﬀ include a chef, butler, driver and spa therapist.
Your villa manager will arrange your every need including booking the children into the fantasy-led wonderland that is the kids’ ‘hotel’ – an imaginative play space where kids can sleepover in a specially designed treehouse. This leaves older members time for experiences such as sunset massages, and oysters and champagne on the beach. Heaven on earth.
"Bond as a family over interesting cultural trips: visit the ornate Tha Cha Temple and be blessed by a monk, canoe to a cave for a traditional ‘Loy Kratong’ ceremony among luminescent plankton or visit the island’s most sacred temple at Wat Chalong, the monumental hilltop Big Buddha."
Time-poor parents in need of relaxation, and three generations looking for a stylish group getaway.
INTO THE WILD
MORUKURU FARMHOUSE - SOUTH AFRICA
The malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve is ideal for those with kids looking to go on safari, and family owned Morukuru Farm House know’s just how to host them.
Available on an exclusive basis, this chicly-appointed African homestead on the banks of the peaceful Marico River has five equally proportioned suites, linked to the main area by a covered walkway. Surrounded by 100-hectares of fenced private land, children are free to safely explore its lush green gardens and wild natural beauty. More reminiscent of Cape Town’s smart architecture than a rugged safari camp, you feel welcome to kick off your shoes and relax on inviting sofas, enjoying drinks with friends and family, when not out and about spotting the big 5.
There’s also an inviting pool on the lawn in which to take a midday dip or to recline beside and soak up the glorious warmth of the African sun. Game drives, bush walks, fishing or bird-watching can be done at your own pace while adults have the option to sleep-out at a romantic double story hide.
"For kids there are interactive drives and walks with patient rangers who expertly balance fun and learning, as well as a chance to hop aboard Morukuru’s own boat based at Molatedi Dam for tubing and water-skiing."
Wildlife lovers and experience driven families who want a wide range of activities to suit every member of the family.
LAID BACK LUXURY
Amilla Fushi - Maldives
If you thought the Maldives was the premise of Honeymooners, think again. Family gatherings and group get togethers are welcomed at Amilla Fushi, where the four to eight bedroom Villa Residences are entirely fit for purpose. With its flexible approach, you can really let your hair down and get into that island vibe.
Striking a balance between laidback and luxurious, there’s pretty much everything you need at Amilla to keep the whole crew entertained. A complimentary kids’ club with nanny service leave you guilt-free to enjoy the beach club or spa. Those wanting to burn a bit of energy will be happy with a gym, pro tennis plus a watersports and dive centre where boats come in a variety of sizes, from kayaks to catamarans – perfect for exploring the UNESCO Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve’s pristine turquoise waters.
Tastefully furnished without being ostentatious, the villas have a modernist Miami-esque feel with big sofas, splashes of colour and sumptuous pools. They really are spaces you want to hang out, and with the resort’s in-room dining, which they have dubbed ‘home delivery’, it’s a struggle to leave. But venture out and you will find Bazaar, the island’s lively social hub with a collection of restaurants from fine gourmet dining, to fish and chips or tapas.
"Kids will love the chocolate room, treasure hunts and the biggest infinity pool in the Maldives. Older holiday makers will appreciate the stylish vibe, jaw-dropping natural beauty, to-die-for cocktails and a pampering spa."
Beach and water lovers seeking a castaway paradise with the perfect balance of privacy and resort benefits with fine dining, kids’ club and watersports all on hand.
