For those who get married with their rugrats already in existence its hard to find that place to really call a honeymoon and relax.
We found a place that caters for both adults and kids (even babies) without sacrificing on a quality honeymoon experience. The Shangri-la resort in Sentosa Singapore is 5 stars and ticks all of the boxes.
The place is a paradise resort with beautiful gardens, scenery and activities. The rooms are serviced twice daily and I could not fault them for up to date style and cleanliness.
So what to do with the kids? Well thats where the kids club comes in. I for one am not usually keen on leaving my kids with strangers – mine did not even attend daycare in Australia let alone a foreign resort but after going and checking it out I felt like the kids were as safe there as anywhere back home.
They run activities every hour and have a clean and dedicated indoor ‘Treehouse ‘ playground the kids loved. We left out 5 and 7 year old on the first day for an hour and they begged us to go back every day, even allowing us to have a dinner together alone and some relaxing time by the pool and a trip to the day spa. The pool has water slides to keep them entertained while you supervise and relax by the pool. The restaurant even has its own ‘kids buffet’ that pleases even my fussy eaters! For babies they have a fridge full of baby food – unreal!
You can fly direct from Perth taking 5 hours or from the east coast approx. 7-8 hours and a taxi from the airport to the resort door is around $20.
The family fun package for 2 adults and 2 kids will set you back $2.8k for 5 nights with full buffet breakfast and dinner (with house wine and ‘Tiger’ beer). The buffet is a sight to be seen – all i can say is i have never seen so much quality food and variety in one place. Also included in the price is the kids club, sentosa express and beach activities (if you get around to that of course). The pool, cocktails and food was enough for me!
