Top 10 boutique hotels your kids will love during your family holiday

Let’s say you’re a working parent. Five days a week, you’re in your office, working from morning until afternoon. You wake up, make coffee and head off to work only to emerge from your office building at close to sundown. You deal with deadlines, phone calls, emails, paperwork, and even more phone calls that by the end of the day, you feel exhausted. When you get home, you prepare dinner, help your kids with their homework and then it’s off to bed for you and the little ones. Eight hours of shuteye (if you’re lucky) and you’re off to work again.

With a busy schedule like that, it’s natural for parents to want to take some time off away from work and spend some quality time bonding with their kids. Going on a vacation with children can let parents catch up on their kids’ lives and get to know them better. For parents spending some time abroad with their kids in tow, it’s important to stay in a hotel where kids will have fun, instead of getting bored.
