1/4 Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, Thailand

A clever blend of culture, kids activities, outdoor adventure and fabulous beaches, makes this resort a multi-gen masterstroke.

Four to 11 year olds love the big, bright children’s club and its easy mix of creative and active play lets you off parenting duty for a little, with a completely clear conscience. Cookery classes, Muay Thai kickboxing lessons, and the gorgeous Anantara spa, fill up any free time nicely. And of course, lively Phuket itself is great for a grown-up escape.

Water sports and beach sports tick most boxes for teens, and a landscape scattered with romantic temples, lush countryside, and charming little villages, is local to Layan, and fun for everyone to explore.
