Take the entire family on vacation as Amari puts the fun back into multi-generational travel ( 13 July 2017 )

With increasing globalisation, lower airfares, better flight connections and a renewed focus on shared experiences, family vacations are no longer limited to nuclear family units as the trend in multi-generational travel catches on. Time with the grandparents is no longer limited to dinners on Sunday. Likewise, the little ones always enjoy bonding with an overseas-based uncle or aunt during a relaxed family holiday.

Travel suppliers including hotels and resorts are becoming increasingly committed to welcoming larger family units. Amari, a collection of hotels in locations from Bangkok and Pattaya to Galle and Yangshuo, offers thoughtfully designed spaces such as libraries, Voyager Lounges and oversized outdoor day beds to facilitate shared moments. Selected properties also offer kids’ clubs with team members on hand to ensure little guests are happy and entertained with an assortment of games, souvenirs and treats. When it comes to food, Amari offers inviting live cooking stations and street food favourites to entice families to taste, share and enjoy the flavours of modern Asia.

More private space - When travelling with the entire clan, the ability to stretch out and the flexibility to enjoy home-prepared meals supported by a host of services offered by a professional hotel team can contribute to a fun time for all. At properties such as Amari Residences Bangkok and Amari Nova Suites Pattaya, families can choose to stay together in suites offering one-, two- or even, three-bedroom options. These suites also offer fully equipped kitchens so families can choose to self-cater if they so wish. The added space and convenience is complemented by a full selection of hotel services including in-room dining, on-site restaurants and service from the Amari Host.

Activities for all - Pleasing the whole family can be a big task. Prior to a visit to any Amari property, guests can consult Destination Amari, a selection of curated online guides on where to go, eat, play and shop at each location. Family-friendly activities are also clearly marked in the guides to help make planning even easier. While at the hotel, guests can tap into the local knowledge of the Amari Hosts, who are on hand to answer any question and give an insider's insight into the destination. Daily activities from sunrise yoga and cooking classes to learning the local language are also organised and are perfect for guests wanting to spend time together. For the little ones, the Kids’ Club at locations such as Amari Koh Samui, Amari Phuket and Amari Hua Hin are filled with toys and activities to keep them occupied while the grown-ups enjoy a little more "me" time!

A stay at Amari starts at 107 GBP (Approximately 137 USD) per night at Amari Residences Bangkok in a one-bedroom suite with breakfast, exclusive of service charge and tax. For more information on deals from other Amari properties, please visit www.amari.com.

TESTIMONIAL

At a time when consumers have more choice than ever before about where and when to spend their hard-earned cash, and are more savvy about the type of holidays and experiences they are looking for, it is vital that a destination retains an on-going presence in its key markets, in both good economic times and bad.

A good representation company will keep a destination front of mind, open essential trade and consumer doors, and ensure a steady flow of media visits and coverage.

Hills Balfour’s reputation among UK travel professionals and the industry media is unrivalled. It has a track record of excellence that is not based on the impressive number of destinations it represents but on the quality, professionalism and sheer weight of innovative ideas that are contributed by its line-up of talented account executives
