Families looking forward to a quick weekend holiday but dreading the flight? The good news is that if you’re going to these family-friendly resorts, there is no flight! In fact, they’re so close, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself that this is no staycation – you’re ‘abroad’!
For those of you who didn’t (surprisingly!) know, the Indonesian island of Bintan is only a 45-minute ferry ride away. And Banyan Tree is the island’s most luxurious and only all-villa resort. Between the pool villas, its unique rock edge-pool, little buggies ferrying its guests up and down the hillside and all the family-friendly facilities (kids’ club, kids pool, family recreation lounge and marine centre) at the neighbouring Angsana at your disposal, enjoy your time abroad!
I wouldn’t be lying if I told you that I could see he Singapore skyline from this resort in Indonesia! This villa-only family-friendly resort in Batam (40-minute ferry ride from Singapore) has a plunge pool in every villa, guaranteed to have voracious eaters on the breakfast table every morning. The fantastic kids’ club, on the other hand, will have the kids knocked out and retired to bed early enough for the parents to enjoy a late night jig at the hip lounge and bar at the resort. Game on for everyone.
A Lego themed hotel with a Lego theme park and waterpark in its backyard! Lets get real–could the kids (or the kid in you) really ask for more? It is worth knowing that with 70 rides, shows, attractions and 15000 Lego models, this is the only Legoland Resort in Asia. And even though it’s technically in Malaysia, it’s less than a one-hour drive from Singapore. Got plans this weekend?
