Spring Break and summer travel is right around the corner. We’re constantly on the hunt for unique family offerings that are not only experiential for adults and kids but also transformational. Rising global travelers can learn new skills at these four Belmond properties. From mocktail lessons to art classes, curated activities make family travel easy for the smallest decision maker.
For the young entrepreneur… Budding botanist? Future Michelin-starred chef? Belmond Napasai in Koh Samui lets young travelers indulge their career aspirations with the “My First Job” program. Guests can join the hotel’s head chef in the kitchen to create chocolate roses or blend local papaya and coconut juices with the bartender for a delicious mocktail. Kids can also learn the art of Thai dance from a local expert.
For the nature lovers… Nestled along the Sacred Valley’s Urubamba River, Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado invites its tiny explorers to embrace the outdoors with alfresco art classes using local materials, the chance to hand feed the hotel’s baby alpacas, and outdoor movie nights underneath the stars, complete with a popcorn waiter service and dessert bar.
For the junior chef… Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons encourages budding culinary enthusiasts to join Michelin-star chef Raymond Blanc’s Cookery School for half- or full-day ‘Adult and Children’ cooking courses. The junior master chefs can also race through the gardens on a treasure hunt, design their own vegetable patch, and become pen pals with Bear Blanc, the hotel’s teddy bear chef.
For the modern explorer… Outfitted with a complimentary lightweight Trinovid 8x42HD Leica binoculars and a curated map, little adventurers enjoy uninterrupted views of Iguassu National Park with exclusive before- and after-hours access when staying at Belmond Hotel das Cataratas. Young travelers can also get a behind-the-scenes experience at the bird sanctuary where children can feed toucans, flamingos and rare parrots by hand.
