What It Takes to Organize A Family Getaway

When it’s the moment to organize your annual family trip, you need to remember: it’s not a one-stop shop. The entire family grows and evolves, and so do the interests and hobbies. The perfect vacation is waiting for you, whether you are traveling with youngsters or big ones, young adults or grandma and grandpa.

cafe-3537801__340.jpg Life can be frantic with everyone running around doing his/her own thing, so a family vacation is an important time to slow down and enjoy quality time together. Doing things as a family is not only good for each member independently, it also works to connect the entire family.

And they build great memories that will last a lifetime.

Family vacations, however, can be a complicated endeavor. Keeping each member occupied and interested is tough!

So what is the secret to a great family holiday?
The bottom line is to keep all ages amused at all times. The little ones will need familiar foods, babysitters and even special medical requirements, but the older ones will have other priorities. Although family time is vital, teens will need some time to themselves sunning by the swimming pool, going out to discover on their own or meet up with other teens.

Immersive travel is a way to discover more about the place you are visiting and permits your family to be more than typical tourists. Experiencing the culture close up and personal will allow you to become a part of the community and let it become part of you. Staring at the Milky Way at night, exploring the jungle, witnessing sea turtles for the first time and feeling the immense splash of a whale in the wild are all invaluable times that will make you want to make travel a part of your life. Expect genuine adventures that captivate curious minds; bake a pastry in a Parisian boulangerie, visit with local children at a Masai Mara school or take a Zodiac ride in Antarctica with a genuine marine biologist.

Everyone in the family can enjoy learning a bit of the local language, as well as trying some of the diverse foods that will please even the pickiest of eaters.

Whether you are in search of a deluxe and relaxing setting or searching to go discover far-away places, the options are endless.
Here is just a short list of some of the places to visit:
Nihi Sumba Island, Indonesia

There is no other hotel in the world like the Nihi Sumba in Indonesia – it has been named the best and most entertaining hotel in the world. Here you will find a spa situated under a waterfall, a luxurious wellness center, a private place to surf, horse back riding and an open-air Land Rover Safari.

Cruise the Italian Riviera
Yacht travel boasts the best of all worlds – here you can shop til you drop, go touring, water skiing or if you prefer, relax with a good book. Embark on your travels in Naples, head to the Blu Grotto in Capri, Positano, and conclude them on the volcanic island of Stromboli.
The Ranch at Rock Creek, Montana

Maybe your ideal trip is going day fishing, trekking or horse back riding. Yet, you still fancy falling into a comfortable bed with 1000 thread-count sheets at the end of your day. If so, then go to the Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana. This ranch gives you magnificent cabins and the most heavenly spa treatments.

African Safari
A safari getaway is perfect for those who want to separate with the devices of the world and breathe in fresh air as well as re-discover nature. You and your family will be left in awe by the impressive beauty of the wildlife and the great plains of Africa.

Iceland is increasingly popular these days and there are many reasons as to why. It is great if you are flying from the east coast and want to explore a magical place.

And it offers grand adventure for the kids and luxury for mom and dad. And that’s not all, the shots your kids will post on-line will amaze all their friends at home.


San Carlos de Bariloche in Patagonia is another locale if you are looking to escape the summer heat and experience the beauty of this small town set in the foothills of the Andes Mountains.

Bariloche, as it is known regionally, is only a 2-hour flight from the city of Buenos Aires. maldives-1993704__340.jpg

Costa del Sol, Marbella

If your young one is the new Federer and you fancy sunning at the beach while he or she plays with a professional, then visit Puente Romano Beach resort in Marbella.
