Here at Tribù, we know there are many kinds of travel. Some destinations and properties are very suitable for honeymooners, while others are great for groups of friends — or family. This month, we’re highlighting four family travel options that will meet the needs of those traveling with children or groups of mixed ages. Family travel has come a long way and we are eager to share these destinations; many of which we’ve visited with our own family tribes!
Ani Villas are exclusive luxury-meets-group travel, spanning four countries worldwide: The Dominican Republic, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Anguilla. Here, private abodes and amenities welcome families to villa-style, one-of-a-kind accommodations in some of the world’s most exotic locales. In addition to countless activities on- and off-site at Ani properties, we love Ani’s family offerings at most of its properties including a kid's club and activity coordinator who creates a custom experience for kids based upon age and interest.
Great Plains Young Explorers Club, Botswana
The idea of a family safari trip with little ones can be daunting, but some organizations, like Botswana’s Great Plains Conservation, are truly embracing it. Through the Great Plains Young Explorers Club, children experience age-specific safari activities and education positioning them to become ‘Conservation Ambassadors.’
Depending on the size of the family, we love the Selinda Suite in the Selinda Spillway paired with the Duba Plains Suite in the vast private Duba Plains Reserve of the Okavango Delta. These camps allow the whole family to become immersed in the African wildlife experience, while appreciating conservation and sustainable world travel.
Villa Manzu, Costa Rica
Situated on the lush Papagayo Peninsula on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Villa Manzu is known as a private sanctuary with just eight suites suited for small groups and families. Private, yet spacious, the property spans two swimming pools, a theater, and numerous areas where visitors can relax and take in the Peninsula’s exquisite surroundings. The staff at Villa Manzu make it a truly custom experience, as they are trained as guides and can share with families the history and culture of Costa Rica and all it has to offer. For families seeking something particular, look no further than the concierge, drivers and on-site chefs who are ready and equipped to deliver an individual experience. For families traveling with kids and teenagers, the property also offers numerous options including surf boards, tennis, kayaks, golf carts and more.
