Retreat holidays with children

hendrix

As parents of an energetic 2 year old, we understand the need for taking time for yourselves. How else can you find the energy necessary to be the parent you want to be?

We also know how difficult finding that balance of ‘you time’ and the perfect family holiday can be, so we are happy to be able to provide a solution.

Finding the balance…

For those choosing to, or needing to, travel with children we provide the perfect balance, whilst respecting the needs of other guests looking for some quiet and relaxation.

Our retreat locations are as described: retreats. Our guests join us to enjoy some much needed time out – some of whom are leaving their children at home for this very purpose! To ensure a quality experience for all of our guests we do not allow children on site. This makes the environment tranquil and serene for everyone and is better for the children too: when presented with an open space full of interesting nooks and crannies to explore and a swimming pool, no kid wants to be told to stay quiet, calm and mindful!

For this reason we offer great alternative accommodation options for families. These properties have all the exciting, fun things necessary for families with children. They are very close by the retreat but are far enough away to keep the tranquil retreat ambience intact.

Activities

By staying near our retreat location, parents can take turns enjoying the classes, massages, surfing, watersports and dipping in and out of the retreat experience as they see fit. Classes are available twice daily, giving each parent a chance to stretch, disconnect and take some downtime whilst the other parent is enjoying some one on one time with the little ones. Please enquire about watersports and other activities, we are here to help you set up a great, relaxing family holiday.

Child minding & children’s classes

For children 6 and up, private children’s classes can be booked with our instructors. Please enquire for prices and availability. Surfing can be arranged for children 8 years of age and up. There are baby sitting services locally, which can also allow for the chance to spend some of that needed ‘you time’ together, in classes or joining the other guests for meals. Arranging baby sitting services is the parents’ responsibility.*

Meals

We can also provide the same delicious, organic, vegetarian cuisine for the children too. This can be prepared as a take away option for either all the family, or just for the children. This must be booked in advance. One parent is welcome to join the retreat meals whilst the other dines with the children – however it works best to make sure that you get that necessary down time.

So, without having to dampen your children’s holiday experience and without fear of offending those on a quiet escape, you too can enjoy a family break, but still get to do the things that you enjoy on your holiday.

(*Azul can provide contact details for babysitting services but takes no part in choosing or booking the service. Furthermore, Azul accepts no responsibility nor involvement in this service: this is a completely separate transaction between the parents and the sitter. Azul would like to stress that at no time should children be left unsupervised, we care about your little ones as much as you do!)
