We love nothing more than getting away for an overseas adventure with the kids, which means we’re perpetually on the hunt for fam-friendly resorts. That’s why when we heard about the brand-spanking-new Rawai VIP Villas in Phuket, we immediately put it at the top of our ‘must try’ list! Imagine: luxury accommodation (private pool villas? So much yes), an entire water park for kids, a decadent spa, and plenty of shopping opps – all surrounded by amazing beaches. All within a quick hop, skip and jump on two-hour flight to sunny Thailand. So, if this sounds like your kinda holiday bliss, we’ve got the full lowdown on how to have the ultimate family vaycay at Rawai:
Pick a villa
Tough job, we know. At Rawai, you can have your pick between detached or semi-detached villas with up to six bedrooms. Each villa has a private pool and terrace, modern living room, dining area, private parking and en-suite bathrooms in every bedroom, plus a fully-equipped kitchen. Need a kids’ highchair or a baby cot? Don’t worry – this is a resort that totally understands what families need, and it has it all.
Drop the kids off at Rawai Park
If the kids are bored on holiday then it’s an instant recipe for disaster, which is why we’re totes excited about the indoor and outdoor play areas at Rawai. It’s jam-packed with cool activities and areas for kiddos ages zero to eight. There’s an air-conditioned playroom for tots, complete with age-appropriate toys and a ball pit, plus an outdoor play area with covers so the kids can play through rain and shine. Got a little water baby? Then the water play area is sure to be a huge hit: slides, structures and plenty of adventure to be had for the whole fam. And when you’re done with all the aqua-fun, head over to the sandpit. If you’re vacaying on a weekend, don’t forget to catch a magic show or a concert (or both!). And the best news? Parents get to relax too! You can get a bite to eat while watching the kids – The Love Rawai Cafe has a great view of the pool area so you can keep an eagle eye on the fam.
Get a spa treatment
While the kids are busy playing at Rawai Park, it’s YOUR time to finally kick back and relax at the Pure Spa. Choose from loads of decadent and heavenly treatments including body wraps, scrubs, a traditional Thai massage and more! Psst… they also have private rooms are available too!
Explore the Rawai Promenade
Just a 300 meter walk or bike ride from the resort you’ll find a little spot of paradise: the Rawai Promenade along the coast. And while you’re there (and if you’re like us and can’t resist a good bargain), check out the shops at the Promenade. You’ll also find plenty of great dining options serving up local or Western fare. And if you fancy taking your vacay to the next level, give Muay Thai a go at Sinbi Muay Thai, or hop on a boat taxi and get busy with some island hopping. We hear there are over 10 nearby islands to check out for your Robinson Crusoe adventures.
