The South Pacific offers some of the best holidays for kids of all ages; short flight times, heaps of activities, amazing cultural experiences, fantastic kids’ clubs and friendly locals make the South Pacific region the ideal location for your next family holiday. In our latest article, we’re sharing some of our tips for the best holiday spots for families with children of different ages, interests and requirements.
Where to get the best kids club:
If your kids are in the 4-12 age bracket then you are probably looking for somewhere that has an awesome kids club to keep them entertained all day long (and freeing you up to go and relax poolside with a book and a cocktail!). Our top picks for kids clubs in the South Pacific are Plantation Island in Fiji which boasts its own sheltered lagoon, and Warwick Le Lagon in Vanuatu, which has three on-site restaurants, golf course and a day spa on their sprawling 75 acre property, ensuring that the whole family is kept busy!
The best South Pacific destination for teenagers:
Our top South Pacific pick for families with teenagers is Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. This tropical island paradise is just 32km in circumference and has one road that circles the entire island, making it near impossible to get lost. The island is also surrounded by calm lagoon waters and inhabited by some of the friendliest locals you’ll ever come across. Raro also has heaps of adrenalin-packed activities to keep your teens occupied all day, and the safe community means that you can let them explore the island at their own pace without worrying that they’ll get themselves into trouble.
The best personalised service for your family:
If you are looking for a completely stress-free family holiday in a dreamy island setting, where your every need is anticipated and seen to, we recommend Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Fiji. This 5-star luxury resort has separate family facilities and dining areas plus every single child under 6 is assigned a personal nanny from 8:30am to 6.30pm. For kids 6-12, there is an educational kids club with an exciting daily activity program. For the parents, there are 4 swimming pools, a day spa, fitness centre, private dining, restaurant and bar on site.
The best destination for ‘free range’ kids:
If your kids are bit older and like to explore at their own pace then we would recommend Samoa as the perfect holiday destination for your family. Samoans have a very family-centric culture where the whole community looks after children, making it a very safe environment for you to allow your children to go ‘free range’.
