With so much stress currently surrounding children’s education, we are witnessing a growing trend in ‘wellness for kids’ programs in the travel sector. Two of our family-friendly resorts have just launched new activities dedicated to looking after children’s mind, body and managing their stress and anxiety levels. Launching once the resorts reopen!
Elounda Peninsula, Crete
Kids’ Spa Wellness Program
The exclusive Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel on the Greek island of Crete has worked with the on-site award-wining Six Senses Spa to create an innovative, three-day wellness program for guests aged between five and twelve. This program includes fun wellness, educational and nutritional workshops as well as group spa treatments that are carefully put together to educate and encourage children to integrate wellness into their daily life from an early age. The specialist classes, games and treatments are spread out over the course of three days, with three hours of the program to be enjoyed each day to keep the children engaged and ultra-relaxed. On top of this, young guests can enjoy yoga, Greek dancing lessons and games at the Kids Arc. A separate teens program has also been designed incorporating team sports and waterports. Elounda Peninsula, the only all-suite hotel with seafront private pools in Europe, is ideally suited for families seeking a relaxing and luxurious holiday for all ages. With a wide choice of one, two and three-bedroom suites, many with private pools and direct beach access, offers a wealth of opportunities for families to recharge, re-connect and create lifelong memories.
