Each resort boasts an array of thoughtfully curated programmes, amenities and activities specially designed to cater to different age groups, ensuring everyone feels valued and engaged.
HAVENS OF RELAXATION
Imagine unwinding on a gently rocking water bed in the spa, surrounded by the soothing scent of essential oils and the tranquil sounds of meditative music. As parents indulge in well-deserved relaxation, their children are just a stone’s throw away, revelling in the fun-filled kids’ club or splashing joyously in the pool, complete with an endlessly long water slide, all under the watchful eye of expert Familux kids’ coaches. The days are filled with magical moments, and evenings are no exception. After an excellent meal, the in-house theatre comes alive with captivating shows that enthral the entire family. And what better way to wind down the night than with a wine-tasting session featuring the finest wines from sought-after regions?
