Best Family Hotels in the World

When it comes to family vacations, traveling with the kids in tow can be a disaster or a delight. Much of this depends on the destination. A property that's all crystal and hush is hardly the place for a frazzled parent or screaming toddler, but there's no reason to sacrifice luxury or even elegance simply because you want to bring your brood along. To that end, many resorts now offer innovative kids' programs and diverse entertainment options so that parents can spend quality time with their children, then send them safely off and enjoy reconnecting with one another. If Mom wants to visit the spa, Dad wants to play a round of golf and the kiddies want to frolic in the sand, we've got just the place. And if hanging out together is the priority — cycling a nature trail or dining in a restaurant that all palates can enjoy — we have that covered, too. We've made sure there's something for all interests (including hard-to-please teens) on this selective list of the best family resorts around the world.
