Long haul family holidays

Five of the best long-haul options for families

Here are the pick of our exciting options for families traveling to long haul this year. We’ve got an increased presence in America, plenty of gorgeous villas in Sri Lanka and would thoroughly recommend Thailand for families. What are you waiting for?

Chill out collection

The Chill-Out Collection: top hotels around the world to do absolutely nothing in

Forget hot city sightseeing, queuing for museums, and Everest Base camp before breakfast, holidays in 2011 are all about good old-fashioned relaxation. We've found that now, more than ever, people just want to chill out and slow down on their holidays. It’s all about taking in the view rather than climbing a mountain, lying back with a good book over dashing around art galleries, and time by the pool instead of hours spent on guided tours.
