Are you dreaming of that luxury honeymoon to Seychelles but feel constrained by your children? You may not even be considering taking them along as an option, but you may be surprised by how easily you’ll be able to accommodate the kids. Don’t wait until they’ve flown the nest before recapturing some of that essential romance – Turquoise can help you plan the perfect family holiday.
Resorts in Seychelles often do cater for children as well as their parents, if you choose wisely. Constance Lemuria Resort is an ideal choice for parents looking for luxury without leaving the kids behind. It’s a large resort, so it has plenty of facilities and a very high standard of service. All suites and villas are sea-facing, so you’ll have an incredible view throughout your stay. If you’re bringing the family along, some of the Junior suites can interconnect, which makes them perfect for parents who want privacy and slightly older children who will relish the independence. Senior suites have a separate living area and a double size terrace or balcony, which means more space for rambunctious little ones.
Lemuria has plenty to do as well, with an 18 hole championship golf course, spa, gym with aerobics, yoga, and meditation classes, swimming pool, and watersports. Nature lovers will feel right at home here, with the resort’s three secluded coves. Grand Anse Kerlan, one of the coves, is still a place where turtles go to lay their eggs. For kids from 4 – 12, there is the children’s ‘Turtle Club’. This games room and dining area has activities from 9 am to 9 pm, both outside and inside, along with regular excursions a bit further out from the resort. Lemuria also offers babysitting at extra cost.
Constance Ephelia is a newer option which can also cater for families in larger suites and villas. The resort also has a kids’ club and babysitting, very similar to the former resort, with daily activities from 9 am to 10 pm. For adults, the resort offers five boutiques, four pools, a spa, five restaurants and bars, and a gorgeous location in the heart of Port Launay marine national park, Mahe. Constance hotels also offer child-friendly menus, with options for all ages even including gourmet baby food, throughout the resort.
Choosing these holiday options just got that much easier. If you choose to stay at Constance Ephélia Resort, Mahe, or Constance Lemuria Resort, Praslin, you’ll enjoy free airfare from Air Seychelles for your first child when you pay for two adult tickets. Two kids? Your second child’s ticket is 50% off as well. This is only valid for travel between June 1st and July 14th 2011, so remember to book soon to take advantage of this offer. Lemuria and Ephelia each have their own offers, including with one another; ask if these are combinable with the discounted airfare when you enquire! This could be a great opportunity for busy mums to get in that touch of luxury and pampering you’ve been craving, while enjoying long-forgotten romance with your husband.
