Imagine packing your bags and jetting off with Thai Airways International to the world-class Sunwing Kamala Beach. One lucky family of four will be so lucky!
There’s not a mum around who couldn’t use a break right now. Winter has hit hard and we’re all dreaming of sun, sand and fruity cocktails while we battle the kids into coats (why won’t they just wear the coats?!). The thought of jetting off for a family holiday in Thailand for 7 days has us almost weak at the knees. The kids splashing about while we lounge by the pool, cool drink in one hand and maybe, just maybe, an actual book getting read in the other.
Here’s our chance! The good people at THAI and Sunwing Kamala Beach – who clearly get mums! – are offering one lucky family this very opportunity. And rest assured – it’s the luxe experience of your dreams.
Thai Airways International’s little extras make flying a breeze
THAI understands how daunting flying can be for a family, so they’ve made it as stress-free as possible. They’ve made it so families with young children get priority boarding (giving us a bit more time to settle the kids before the rush of other passengers overwhelms us) and priority seating for families with babies. You can also wheel your stroller right up to the aircraft and it’s safely stowed on-board for the flight.
During the flight, the kids will be treated like rock stars. There’s food made especially for them, toys, games and books on offer, plus every seat has its own touch-screen entertainment. If there ever was a time for non-stop screen time, flying is it!
Entertained and happy
The kids will get lost for hours choosing On Demand kids’ movies, cartoons, TV shows and even gaming. Chances are, you won’t hear from them the entire flight… which leaves time for you to enjoy all the movies and TV shows you like, too.
Speaking of happy, once your family lands in Thailand, Bangkok Airport Authority has arranged for you to go through the priority Immigration channel. This will hopefully mean a much shorter wait time. Is there anything more exhausting than facing a long queue after a flight with kids?
Sunwing Kamala Beach to the rescue
After your smooth journey to Thailand, you can really start to relax. Sunwing Kamala Beach is a resort that’s perfectly made for families. There are seven pools – yes, seven! – with several waterslides, coves and gently sloping pool depths so kids of all ages can venture in. Oh, and one of the pools has a swim-up bar… we know where we’ll be bagging a sun-lounger.
To keep the kids entertained, two cute characters called Lollo and Bernie hang out around the pools, making them feel extra-welcome.
Fun for the minis all day
Kids and parents are also welcome at any of the resort “open house” activities, including playing in Lolly and Bernie’s MiniLand, the resort’s playground and playhouse where discos, creative time, and pizza movie nights all happen. You’ll also be able to catch live entertainment kids’ shows or family shows around the resort.
Of course, all children need some holiday time away from their parents, so Sunwing offers affordable babysitting with trained childcare workers.
The kids will be entertained and cared for while you head out for a massage, take a water aerobics or yoga class, enjoy a solo beach trip, hit the gym, or indulge in a quiet dinner out at one of the resort’s stunning restaurants and bars. Bliss!
