While this month’s all about ‘back to school’ fever, some of us are already planning our next escape – be it half-term adventures or a winter-sun escape. Try these for size: JW Marriott Maldives (1) has launched its FAMILY BY JW Little Griffins Kids Club, with its 100-strong roster of cool activities for kids, big or small, centred around ‘activeness, culinary and creativity’. Think Superhero Obstacle Course, Hide & Seek at the Pirate Ship, Cupcake making, balloon twisting, sports, splash pad and island adventures.
Next up, the Big Apple is enticing families this season, with Mandarin Oriental New York’s new Mini Manhattan Family Getaway (2). Families will get a one-hour carriage ride through Central Park, as well as $100 daily dining credit, two $50 speciality store gift cards, MO panda-themed welcome amenities and MO teepee set-up in the living room, when booking a suite.
Or, for maximum cool points, head to Moxy Rust (3), an all-new, über-upbeat Marriott hotel in Rust, Germany, where its living room has its own horse carousel.
