From beachside volleyball courts in Thailand to life-sized wooden pirate ships in PortugalSmith & Family has unearthed three of the most fun-filled resorts for families from its repertoire. While parents relax, little ones will be making friends (and maybe some cupcakes too), exploring exotic cuisine or setting off on sailing lessons. Expect unforgettable, action-packed adventure on your next family holiday, mama!

Evason Ana Mandara – Nha Trang, Vietnam


A tropical, eco-friendly destination in bustling Nha Trang, Evason Ana Mandara has oodles to offer the whole family, including canopied four-poster beds in every room. Spacious villas with pagoda-shaded porches come with views of lush tropical fronds or glittering turquoise waters – there are even indoor sunken tubs too.


Catch some open-water thrills on a three-day sailing course that’ll excite all ages, or take a load off at the holistic spa while the kids are at the Just Kids Club. There over-4s can dabble in arts and crafts, cooking classes, and beachside ball-games. Organic, locally sourced food is championed across all menus, with kid-friendly items including prawn and mango nibbles, coconut-and-pork spring rolls or tasty stir-fries.

Pine Cliffs Resort – Algarve, Portugal


A Moorish Portuguese getaway, Pine Cliffs Resort is a must for families who can’t get enough of the outdoors. Kids can enjoy sun, surf, and sand at the 7,000-sqm Porto Pirata club, with its two life-sized wooden pirate ships. In this kids-only village, there’s an 18-hole mini-golf course, playground, basketball, and volleyball courts, bouncy castle and supervised pool for endless entertainment.


Kitchens and laundries offer flexibility with finesse in the single-story Pine Cliffs Residences. Five outdoor pools are scattered around the resort; there’s a swim-up bar for parents at the main pool and, just next door, a children’s pool. A tot-tailored menu of various nibbles including chicken nuggets, pizzas, and pasta is available across the entire resort too.

Trisara – Phuket, Thailand


The exclusive private villas at Trisara are each luxuriously fitted with infinity pools, private outdoor showers and sun-decks for family lounging and dining. From the jaw-dropping ocean views to the luxurious spa and free kids’ club, you’ll find it hard to leave this flawless paradise. Trisara Kids will have little ones creating Thai-inspired fans or enjoying kite-flying sessions or Muay Thai under the sun.


The inviting beachfront 45-metre saltwater lap pool is perfect for kids to play under the watchful eye of resident lifeguards too. The kids’ menu is an eclectic mix of Shirley Temple mocktails, home-made milkshakes and dishes such as noodle soup or pumpkin gratin. Parents should book a date-night at the Deck – one of the most praised restaurants in Phuket. Don’t blame us if you develop a nightly addiction for its pad Thai!
