From scuba-diving lessons to nature-park hikes, all-inclusive
means so much more than just drinks and food these days, discovers Amanda Statham. And there’s no nasty bill at the end

1/10 Best for… mountain adventure

It’s hard to convince little ones about a holiday away from the beach, but Kinderhotel’s Moar Gut Austrian Alpine resort will quickly convert them with its exhausting array of activities, from tennis, biking, horse-riding and hiking to bread-baking, swimming lessons and football-coaching. And if it rains, the soft play with giant slide and cinema will help keep them amused. Parenting-wise, you get up to 60 hours of childcare per child (age two-plus) per week, an excellent spa, food which consistently gets great write-ups and plenty of thoughtful extras like free ice-cream for kids, unlimited non-alcoholic drinks and a good choice of family rooms and apartments. The resort also operates in the winter, when you can take the family skiing.

USP Moar Gut has a valley-farm vibe and kids can feed pigs, sheep, rabbits and chickens each morning.
