Koh Phi Phi, Thailand – Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, an idyllic island hideaway nestled amongst 70 tranquil acres of coconut palms, has launched an exciting new programme of activities for families with older children. Created especially for kids aged 10 to 16, the Young Explorers programme features a series of educational and entertaining sessions that will keep young adults active throughout their stay.
The Young Chef course is held daily and teaches kids how to cook simple Thai dishes overseen by the resort’s chef, potentially sparking a love of the culinary arts. For more active kids, the weekly “Beach Gamer” sessions include a wide range of fun beach sports such as volleyball, mini-petanque and beach soccer.
Youngsters can unleash their inner explorer with a choice of exciting nature-based activities. The Mangrove Explorer activity for example is held every week and allows children to paddle through the mangroves on kayaks and learn more about this enchanting coastal ecosystem.
A Seaside Boot Camp Beach features a series of fun and fitness activities such as yoga and aerobics all held on the resort’s pristine beach, and finally, the monthly Coral Reef Nursery Activity allows Young Explorers to help preserve the resort’s coral reef with a diving or snorkelling trip.
These activities range from one to four-and-a-half hours in duration and are priced between THB500 and THB990 per child. For more information about this action-packed programme, please visit https://www.
The Young Explorers programme is designed to complement Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort’s Little Islanders programme, which is aimed at 3-10 year-olds and includes activities such as craft workshops, swimming lessons and recycling. Combined, these two children’s programs provide a full week’s worth of adventures for kids of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers. This allows parents to spend more time simply relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquility of this serene island paradise, safe in the knowledge that their children are being kept active and entertained in the care of professional supervisors.
Families can experience all of these activities throughout this winter high season by booking the Express Getaway Package. Available from now until 30th April 2018, this package includes a minimum of two nights’ accommodation, daily breakfast, free Wi-Fi, round-trip land and sea transfers between the resort and Phuket International Airport, a welcome fruit basket and welcome drink upon arrival. Guests wanting to stay longer will also be offered 10% off the resort’s best available rate for additional nights. For more information and reservations, please visit https://www.
