The perfect family holiday is often one that manages to blend relaxation with fun and adventure. Hillside Beach Club on the Aegean coast of the Mediterranean does just that. The luxury resort is surrounded by woodland and set in a secluded private bay, meaning it is blissfully serene, but there is also an amazingly diverse programme of clubs for lively kids.
Kidside is an action-packed club for kids aged four to seven, run by professional coaches. At Junior Club, kids aged eight to 12 can try everything from sailing to DJing. Even notoriously hard-to-please teens are well catered for at Hillside  Beach Club. At Young Club, 13-17- year-olds can have fun while still looking cool, by playing water polo and beach volley ball, doing water sports, or simply chilling in the Jacuzzi.

Meanwhile, parents seeking R&R will welcome the retreat’s unspoilt location, between the scent-filled pine forests of Fethiye and crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. While the kids are letting off steam, two sumptuous spas offer calming havens for serious pampering.

The SANDA Nature Spa is set within the pine forest canopy and offers reviving traditional Balinese massage treatments, while SANDA Spa in the heart of the resort offers an authentic Turkish bath, sauna, Jacuzzi and massage rooms.

Beyond the luxury of the resort, there are rich rewards for culture-seekers. Hillside Outside offers excursions to historical ruins and canyons, boat trips to secluded bays and dazzling islands, and more adventurous pursuits such as mountain biking and jeep safaris.

Hillside Beach Club is home to a distinguished watersports centre, so whether you and the kids fancy doing flips on a wakeboard, or simply a gentle snorkel close to shore, you’ll find your perfect way to enjoy the bay’s turquoise waters. Activities include scuba diving, water-skiing, flyboarding, sailing, kayaking and speed boat tours. Kids aged eight and above can try Optimist dinghy sailing, while windsurfing is available for those aged seven and over.

For those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land, there’s archery, beach volleyball, trekking and tennis lessons, as well as complimentary Pilates, Zumba and yoga classes.

Every mealtime, Hillside Beach Club’s guests are welcomed to a festival of food with full-board plus dining in three restaurants serving locally sourced, seasonal menus as well as global cuisines. The Main Restaurant offers a Baby Buffet with healthy meal options.

The resort’s stylish and contemporary accommodation offers spectacular views of the resort’s privately-owned Kalemya Bay. Superior Family Rooms consist of one double room and one smaller room with a spacious private terrace.

The babysitting service leaves parents free to enjoy evenings at the romantic Pasha on the Bay, where lounge music, colourful cocktails and the finest à la carte cuisine are all waiting to be enjoyed under a starry sky.
