Luxurious family time
Whilst we often associate luxury breaks with children-free travelling, there are many gorgeous hotels around the world that are both upmarket and child friendly. With summer finally here and the August Bank Holiday weekend coming up, this is as good a time as any to consider booking that well deserved family break, if you haven’t done so already.
The Flexicover Team look at some fabulous hotels and resorts that the kids will love too!

Hillside Su; Antalya, Turkey
This elegant, super-cool and futuristically-designed hotel is ultra-contemporary in an amazing setting.

The accompanying spa is great for pampering and treatments are offered for guests as young as 12, so the kids don’t have to miss out. A kids club and playground plus attentive service make this a hip hotel, one the whole family will love.
