What you’ve heard is true – Fijians just adore children. And the good news for parents is that Fiji is overflowing with excellent kids’ clubs that are so much fun, your kids will be begging to return. Here are just a few of our favourites (ask us if you’d like more options).
Malolo Island Resort
At idyllic Malolo Island Resort the kids’ club, Tia’s Treehouse, sits under the canopy of a giant mango tree. It brings an inventive twist to the kids’ club concept, with excursions that might involve fish-feeding or visiting the local school. Kids might also be kept busy making a traditional costume or learning Fijian words. Meanwhile, parents can swing in a hammock, read a book or catch up on sleep. And if you’re desperate for a date night at the adults-only restaurant, the staff can organise after-dark games to keep the kids otherwise occupied. The kids’ club is free for kids aged four to 12.
Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa
This five-star Denarau Island resort is so family-friendly that it features ultra-cool family rooms with optional bunk-bed rooms, Sony PlayStations and proximity to the children’s pool and waterslide. Its Turtle Kids’ Club runs three sessions a day, giving parents time to relax at the spa or at the Waitui Beach Club, which features its own champagne bar. Outdoor movies on Monday nights come complete with bean bags and popcorn. From here, it’s also a short hop to the Big Bula Waterpark on Denarau Island.
Castaway Island, Fiji
This four-star Mamanuca islands resort, set on a 70-hectare private island, features a next-level kids’ club with an emphasis on nature-based play. Among the activities on offer are crab-hunting, snorkelling lessons, ice-cream-eating competitions, sandcastle building and treasure hunts. Kids can also dress up for the torch lighting ceremony. There are also games that the kids can join in with after they finish their early dinner.
