Family Fun at Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados
Renowned for having one of the best beaches on the platinum west coast, Fairmont Royal Pavilion is an excellent choice for families of all ages. A favourite past time is the enormously fun beach cricket and beach football when the kids (and Dad’s too!) compete against the Fairmont staff. Even more popular are the family movie nights, and what could be better than watching a blockbuster movie, indulging in warm popcorn and enjoying a cool beverage under the stars?
A real highlight for families is the complimentary daily snorkelling trip just a short swim from the hotel where experienced members of Fairmont’s water sports team will feed the turtles whilst guests of any age swim and snorkel amongst them. Those lucky enough might get to see turtles hatching on the beach as Prestbury Worldwide Resorts Marketing Manager, Jan Locke did.
The Children’s Programme (school holidays only) has exciting activities for children aged 5-15 years. Older children will enjoy learning a water sport, such as sailing, surfing, snorkelling, paddle boarding or taking a kayak tour around the shore. Younger guests will enjoy traditional Bajan games, face painting and kite flying along the beach and there is a play room.
During the summer months, Fairmont Royal Pavilion offer a 50% saving on a 2nd room for families. In addition, children under five years dining with their parents also eat on a complimentary basis, whilst children aged 6-12 years receive a 50% saving off the children’s menu.
Children over the age of 10 are welcome year round at Fairmont Royal Pavilion whilst children under 10 years are accepted between 15 March to 31 October and over the festive period.
“Our Marketing Manager, Jan Locke said: It really was a real highlight of the stay. We were incredibly fortunate to see over 100 turtles hatch and the children (under strict guidance!) were allowed to hold and touch the turtles. As a protected species in Barbados, out of the 100 turtles that were later released into the sea only a handful will have survived the perils of the sea.”
