Given the breakneck pace of today's lifestyle, parents don't often have the opportunity to escape for a relaxing vacation of their own. But that doesn't mean they have to sacrifice adult pleasures just to please the kiddies. When it comes to the family holiday, we feel it's important to include something for every member of the family — a spa treatment for mom, tee time for dad and plenty of activities for the children ... not to mention, babysitting if it so desired. To that end, we sorted through our favorite family-friendly properties to create GAYOT's Top 10 List of Family Resorts in the World. From sting ray safaris and cattle drives to decadent massages and swim-up bars, this collection is sure to please every member of your family.
