At Andiamo Travel, we are all in favor of bringing the little ones in our life on vacation; however, we understand the need for additional amenities when it comes to young children and these hotels make sure your kids will enjoy the trip just as much as you do! This week, we rounded up our favorite destinations that are making it easier than ever for new parents to get away and enjoy your time together.
#1. Rosewood Miramar Beach
While this hotel is our go-to adult playground for relaxing at the pool and checking out the local wineries of Santa Ynez Valley, the Rosewood Miramar also does a great job at catering to kids. With your kids ages in mind, our team at Andiamo will ensure that you have the crib and linens you need as well as anything from changing tables, diaper pails and in-room baby-proofing service. We’ll also make sure your tot has a matching child-sized robe and slippers to match Mom & Dad! Rosewood’s Explorers Club is designed to provide fun-filled days with a range of programming from arts and crafts to books, movies and games. The property has two pools – an adult pool and a kids pool. Let us book you a cabana at the kids pool to have the perfect home base for a day at the pool and beach!
For families with 1-2 children under 5 years old, we recommend the Garden Bungalow Suite for enough living space for the whole family!
#2. Four Seasons Maui
Located on the shores of Wailea Beach, this island sanctuary was truly designed with you and your family in mind. The staff onsite at the pool and beach can setup one of many complimentary, luxurious cabana or oceanfront sanctuary for you or you can opt for a simple lounger and umbrella setup. Take a dip in the fabulous family pool or explore the beach looking for seashells. Your kids will love immerse themselves in the sandy shores and discovering all that Maui has to offer. We can request any special family or baby amenities that you may need, so you don’t have to drag everything on the flight with you. The resort was awarded “Best Children’s Program” in 2017 (for children 5-12)!
#3. Resort at Paws Up
Known for its incomparable luxury and unspoiled wilderness, Paws Up is a luxury resort situated in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the US. The resort is nestled on a sprawling, 37,000-acre, authentic working cattle ranch in western Montana. For families, enjoy one of the expansive private homes or a family-style glamping tent with real beds, providing a secluded place to unwind at the end of an activity-filled day. Almost all activities can be accommodated for children of all ages, but our favorite for toddlers and young children are arena horse lessons or pony rides!
#4. Jumby Bay Island

Their children’s program Paintbox is the perfect destination for parents to sneak away for a round of golf or a spa appointment. For families with 1-2 young children, we recommend booking one of the One- or Two-Bedroom Cottages to provide a sense of home-living with a great view.
#6. Four Seasons Los Cabos
Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Four Seasons opened its doors on the East Bay of the Baha Peninsula, marking the start of the trend for many top hotel brands who are developing in this area northeast of Cabos San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. The Los Cabos property was ahead of its time in terms of accommodations that are mostly privately housed and many with private plunge pools. The expansive grounds are perfect for outdoor exploration and activities and the swimmable beach on the Sea of Cortez create the perfect opportunity for watersports and boat days. For families with 1 young child, we recommend the Ocean View Room w/ Private Plunge Pool for your own private splash zone!
