3 min read

Thinking of taking a break for the June school holidays? We help you chart a course for a family getaway that promises both relaxation and fun. Consider these family-friendly vacation ideas – some even allow you to leave your passports behind.

Safari Time

Intercontinental Singapore’s King Bed Suite Kids Theme Room is a spacious 52 sqm room with an interactive kid’s zone with custom-designed bunk beds with slides, places to crawl in and even a mini teepee. This area is separate from the main bedroom, which means parents can take the chance to finally have a lie-in while their kids have fun exploring their new temporary home. Intercontinental Singapore also has a Family Getaway package which includes one night’s accommodation, a three-course prix-fixe dinner at LUCE by Davide Giacomelli or Man Fu Yuan, and other fun things like a DVD movie night with popcorn!

Jungle King

The Urban Jungle Suite at Pan Pacific Singapore is a child’s dream come true. The jungle-themed room is decked out with cheery wallpaper, a treehouse bunk bed and even an inflatable hippo! The fun continues outside the room with the Urban Jungle Village, a children’s play area located on level 4 of the hotel, with seven activity zones with features such as slides and a reading corner. To enhance your stay, you can opt for the Urban Jungle Adventure Package, which comes with private access to the Urban Jungle cabana and access to Kiztopia, Singapore’s largest indoor playground, in Marina Square.

Far From The Madding Crowd

For a family holiday that’s off the beaten track, Telunas Beach Resort is worth considering. Located in Pulau Sugi, near Batam, the journey to the resort itself is an adventure – it entails a ferry ride from Harbourfront to Batam followed by a chartered boat or traditional ferry journey. All the accommodation in Telunas Beach Resort are overwater bungalows, including a sumptuous three-bedroom and loft bungalow perfect for larger families as it sleeps up to 12. The resort prides itself on being offline – there are no WiFi nor televisions, providing an opportunity to cherish quality time with loved ones and engage in activities like balcony fishing and kayaking.

Desirable Desaru

Experiencing a resurgence as a resort destination with the opening of the Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal in 2022, Desaru is now easily accessible with a 90-minute ferry ride, or you can opt for a leisurely two-hour drive from Singapore. Sand & Sandals Desaru Beach Resort and Spa is one of several resorts in the seaside town, with its own private beach boasting pristine white sand. Families will be thrilled to know that not only does the resort offer nautical-themed family suites, it also has a kids’ play centre and a games room to keep the young ones entertained. Adrenaline-seeking families should opt for the Adventure Package, which includes free water sports such as banana boat rides and F&B credits.
