We loved staying at Hotel 50 Bowery and exploring NYC’s Chinatown.  Surrounded by delicious eateries and a buzzing vibe it was an exciting experience for the whole family.  Our stunning corner room boasted panoramic NY skyline views and sumptuous beds and modern bathroom.  The hotel also features a picturesque rooftop bar ideal for sunset hour and a social space on their 2nd floor where guests can relax, co-work, or hang out with friends.  Complimentary tea and coffee is available all day and staff were always on hand to make local recommendations or help with reservations.  You’re only a short walk to Soho, Little Italy, and the Lower East Side so it’s the perfect opportunity to check out the trendy downtown area. Perfect for families and friends looking for a modern and friendly property located in one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

We were craving a cozy winter getaway with the children and were so happy to come across Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort.  The family friendly property, located in picturesque Lake Placid, holds prime real estate on Mirror Lake and boasts the warm alpine vibes we favor.  Our stunning two bedroom suite had two separate bedrooms, a huge decadent bath, working fireplace, and spacious balconies overlooking spectacular lake views.  Our kids couldn’t get enough of the snowy surroundings, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, exploring the cute Main Street, and splashing around in the indoor heated pool.  We were just a stones throw from skiing and many other Adriondack scenic spots and activities.  The staff were kind and inviting throughout our stay ensuring our family felt right at home.  Make sure to stop by their restaurant, Generations, for the best meal in town.  Guests of the hotel enjoy all day happy hour prices and we’re still dreaming about those addictive wings. A perfect family trip for all seasons and a personalised experience for all guests.

The most wonderful time of. year with Thompson Central Park.  We had such an amazing stay at this luxurious family friendly hotel in the days leading up to Christmas.  Located just a stone’s throw from Central Park, 5th Avenue, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Bryant Park you’ll be spoilt for things to do and an unbeatable ambiance at the center of the buzzing city.  Our children loved ice skating at Wollman Rink, visiting FAO Schwartz and we enjoyed all the stylish eateries and shopping at Sak’s 5th Avenue.   Our five star suite was a decadent home away from home with a sumptuous king size bed, cozy separate lounge and dining space, as well as all the luxury amenities we desired in the modern bathroom.  Parker’s, Thompson Central Park’s in-house bar and restaurant, houses all the best New York ambiance, incredible cocktails and delicious fare.  The staff were always consistently available to arrange transport, make reservations and recommendations, and suggest child friendly activities around the city.  An ideal choice for families looking for luxury and comfort at the heart of New York City.  Rest assured you and your children will have a stay to remember.

See the real Peru with Peru Hop.  Our family absolutely loved this experience and having the opportunity to see so many incredible places in one journey.  We took the Full South from Cusco to Lima which stopped in every town and sight on our must see list.  Peru Hop is a flexible service suitable for all travellers.  Pick your route and you can spend as many days as you want at each stop.  The best part is their personalised service ensuring you get safely to your accommodation of choice.  Each route has English speaking guides who are always on hand to help arrange tours, book hostels, give Peru Hop exclusive discounts and recommendations at every stop.  During long journeys our guide even ordered breakfast and lunch at local restaurants along the way.  With a meeting point at every destination you always have a base to meet friends, leave your luggage, and find your guide for assistance.  This was our first time taking overnight buses and our kids slept the entire journey on the cozy and comfortable reclining seats.  The best choice if you’re looking to travel by bus but value the security, safety, and convenience that Peru Hop offers.

We were so excited to visit Peru’s famous beach town Paracas and stay at the luxurious Radisson Resort Paracas.  The modern five star resort sits on prime oceanfront location and offers all you need for a sunny family getaway.  We loved the refreshing and stylish swimming pool, mouthwatering eateries, and idyllic private beach.  Our Ocean Front Suite was perfect for a family of four with a spacious separate lounge and dining area, and a beautiful balcony featuring ocean views.  Dining options were a huge highlight from fresh local seafood and their signature ceviche to a fun grill night under the stars.  Cocktails at sunset are an absolute must and staff are always on hand to help arrange tours and transport as well as ensure you have a seamless stay.  The family activities and kids corner is a huge bonus for those travelling with little ones and the fun and engaging team ensured there were plenty of activities to keep our children occupied and happy.  We highly recommend a tour of the Paracas National Reserve with Destinations Ica for a scenic and educational experience.  A perfect beach break just a few hours south of Lima.

Set in the picturesque district of Barrio de San Lazaro, the beautiful Hotel Fundador is a idyllic choice for your trip to Arequipa.  We loved the welcoming boutique hotel with friendly service, modern guestrooms, and unbeatable rooftop views.  Both our rooms features stunning step out balconies which overlooked the romantic square and spectacular sunsets each evening.  The area was filled with cute eateries and quaint cafes and we were only a stones throw to the historic center where you can explore all of Arequipa’s famed sights.  An ideal choice for families and couples looking for tranquility and personalised service during their getaway to Peru’s famed white city.

Lake Titicaca is a must visit in Peru and one of the most stunning sights in the country.  We loved staying at GHL Lago Titicaca situated on an island placed at the center of the lake’s magnificent scenery.  We loved the cozy lodge vibes, delicious fare at their elegant restaurant and the modern guestooms boasting panoramic views.  Just steps from the entrance is a picturesque trail where you can stroll along the tranquil lake and even meet a few alpacas and llamas.  Staff were always on hand to assist with booking tours and transportation and the on site pier makes it easy to visit the famed Uros Islands during your stay.  An amazing choice for families seeking luxury and tranquility while visiting Lake Titicaca.

Visit Cusco with Sonesta Hotel Cusco and discover the vibrant historic city.  We loved the family friendly property with cozy and modern guestrooms, incredible views, and inviting staff.  Each morning we started our day at the delicious and varied buffet breakfast before walking into the Plaza de Armas to explore the plethora of ancient sights.  You’re just a short walk to many mercados, eateries, and cafes and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to buy handcrafted souvenirs or take a picture with a cute baby lamb. A must visit city for families and Sonesta creates the perfect ambiance for a seamless and tranquil stay.
