Finding the perfect accommodation has never been so easy.

We take the hassle out of finding a good place for the whole family to stay, which, let’s be honest, isn’t always easy and can be time-consuming. Your accommodation is chosen with great care and we try to avoid the big chain hotels. We stick to small, family-friendly establishments wherever we can, such as a jungle lodge in Costa Rica or a locally run hotel in Italy. It’ll always be good quality, and most rooms will feature ensuites and air conditioning. We try to pick hotels that provide triple or quad rooms and always try and offer conjoining rooms when they are available.

What makes our accommodation so unique

School’s out. Pools are in.

Most families expect to be able to swim when they’re on holiday, so we’ve made sure there are swimming opportunities on most of our trips. We always stay in hotels with pools wherever possible, because there’s nothing more refreshing than a dip after a long and exciting day, and there will be plenty of those.

Safety first

Right up there with real life experiences, local flavours and cultural discovery is the matter of security. We take it seriously. That’s why we work with providers who can assure a safe and comfortable atmosphere when you’re hanging out at your accommodation, day or night.

Location, location, location

It’s no fun hiking or catching a taxi down the road to get to the exciting stuff. Holidays are precious days, and time is a-wastin’. So we always stay close to the action, for easy access to that pulsing city centre, beachy sunset, volcano view or wildlife congregation.

Mix it up

We source a variety of accommodation types so you get to experience unique ways of sleeping. Think overnight trains, heritage buildings, homestays, jungle camps and hotels. And that’s just the land-based stuff. We’ve also got gulets (Turkish sailboats), junks (for Halong Bay in Vietnam) and feluccas (Nile riverboats) for unforgettable overnight excursions.

Highlights

Homestay in Morocco

Discover the joys of the High Atlas on a trek through scenic Berber villages, spending a night in a traditional Berber homestay. It’s a chance to discover the culture and tradition of an indigenous population who have stood the test of time.

Caribbean rainforest lodge, Costa Rica

Located on 34 acres (14 hectares) close to the entrance to Tortuguero National Park, this superb rainforest lodge ticks all the boxes: comfortable rooms, great food, easy beach access (a five minute walk away), friendly bilingual staff, a top-notch pool and – even better – a spa.

Maasai camp, Kenya

When there are Maasai warriors with spears guarding your tent from lions, you know you’ve landed right in the middle of the action. Forget about the chain hotels with infinity pools overlooking the ocean – your tented camp in Loita Hills, Kenya, gives new meaning to the word ‘location’.

Stay on a traditional Felucca on an Egyptian Family Holiday

Nile felucca in Egypt

Glide down the Nile on a traditional Egyptian felucca, a wooden boat with broad canvas sails. Watching rural Egyptian life play out on the banks and sleeping on deck under the stars is a memorable experience. Not to mention full-board Nubian hospitality.
