Mr & Mrs Smith – the travel club for hotel lovers – is the place to go if you’re after a family holiday with a difference. Its family itineraries and Smith Exclusive packages feature truly unique experiences; from star gazing in the Moroccan desert, to diving in the Maldivian coral reefs. Each can be tailored to your tastes; so the kids are guaranteed an adventure that surpasses their wildest dreams. And, as with every Mr & Mrs Smith holiday, you can expect to stay in a selection of fabulous hotels and villas, handpicked by their knowledgeable team at the end of a phone 24 hours a day.
If you’re in need of a little inspiration, here’s just some of the packages on offer:
There’s plenty to keep your little ones entertained on this action-packed Italian trip. Treasure hunts traversing Venice’s bridges, gladiator lessons in Rome, a private boat trip along the Amalfi coast and a daily helping of Italian ice cream: this family-focused trip will leave a smile on parents’ faces too. Stay at Bellevue Syrene, a hotel built upon the ruins of a Roman villa, where Versuvius herself stars in the panoramic views from the terrace.
Enjoy 13 nights in tropical Sri Lanka, on a full-throttle break for all ages. Tire out your tykes with cycling trips along the island’s southern coast, enjoy a private jeep safari through Minneriya National Park and white-water rafting along the Kelani River with an expert guide. And – one for the parents – you can learn how to cook with the locals in a village near Galle.
Get back to nature in true Smith style: stay in charming, tricked-out tents amid lush greenery in The Jungle Book-inspired, tiger-roamed Pench and Kanha national parks, and enjoy private game drives with real Shere Khan-spotting potential. After an Attenborough doc’s worth of animal encounters, end your trip wiling away time on Goa’s golden beaches.
