Organising family holidays is hardly the most stress-free activity one can imagine. Deciding where to go, what hotel to stay in, what kind of activities to do – and of course, the question driving the decision-making is ‘Will the kids enjoy this?’ Understandably, deciding to take a family abroad for the holidays is a big task for parents. However, the stress needn’t be there. If being pampered and entertained in an excellent resort in the Mediterranean sounds appealing, imagine how much the parents would enjoy it too. One of the luxury hotels in Cyprus you can choose is The Columbia Beach Resort on the beautiful island of Cyprus is renowned for its excellent service, its comfortable rooms, its wide range of facilities and its entertainment. Get the kids there and let the staff take care of the rest. The only decision to make during the holiday will be whether to take the kids along on a certain activity or not.
The Columbia Beach Resort is situated on the south coast of Cyprus in idyllic Pissouri. The town and surrounding coastline offer fantastic opportunities for walks and day trips, and the resort staff will be more than happy to advise on family-friendly routes and destinations. Stroll through the town, swim in the bay’s sapphire waters, or taste authentic Greek cuisine in one of Pissouri’s great restaurants. Alternatively, enjoy the many facilities on offer at the hotel, including its fabulous buffet meals, swimming pools, gyms and play areas. Whatever the interests of the family, the hotel and Pissouri will be sure to cater to them.
However, if the children’s ideas of fun don’t extend to browsing Grecian markets or exploring green vistas, then the Columbia’s children’s group, the Sailor Kids’ Club, has a range of exciting activities and games on offer. If the parents think that golfing on one of the resort’s extensive courses is on the cards, the kids can opt out with treasure hunts, painting and cooking with the kids club. Parents may enjoy water sports or activities that aren’t quite appropriate for the children; wind surfing on rough days in the bay and wine-tasting in the hotel’s bar hold many joys that aren’t kid-friendly yet. Children’s water activities in the hotel’s many pools solves the problem though, and being fully supervised and safe just allows the parents to enjoy themselves with full ease of mind.
As well as activities, the Columbia Beach Resort offers outstanding relaxation and spa services. Weary working parents need their pampering time: massages, fitness classes, spas, and sauna facilities will relax even the most tightly-wound adult. Children can run around and participate in games and classes organised by the resort, keeping them out of their parents’ hair and mind for a few hours at least. Whenever the family members need space, the hotel is amply able to provide, but when parents want to make irreplaceable memories with their children, there is also space and freedom for family-friendly experiences. The trick, hinted at in the title, is to just decide what and when.
