Planning a family vacation is serious business. Whether it’s within the borders of the country you live in or further afield, there’s a lot of admin involved and the logistics can get tricky. One of the key ways you can ensure that the trip is comfortable and enjoyable for everyone coming along is to pay special attention to the accommodation you decide to book. Searching for luxury hotels can be overwhelming because there are so many. However, not all of them are ideal for hosting families.
The last thing you want is to be cramped in a small space, struggling for adequate transport, while you forage for food at every turn. It may sound dramatic, but it’s not far-fetched. You have to consider factors such as privacy, access to comforts, provision of food, and appropriate activities for various age groups. In this blog, we provide a list of family-friendly hotels and lodges to consider.
Family Lodge #3: Malcolm Lodge
Located in the northern suburb of Borrowdale, this lodge is great if you’re looking for a homely experience in a quiet area. It caters for a wide range of guests, with facilities that include an outdoor entertainment area and swimming pool.
Family Lodge #2: Casa Kadiki Bed And Breakfast
This accommodation is a short drive from the bustling Harare city centre. It comes with a light breakfast option, which you can supplement by buying from the coffee shop on the premises. The packages come in varying degrees of self-catering options, so it’s ideal for a DIY traveller. However, if you need time off from taking care of cooking chores, it might not work well for your family.
Family Lodge #1: (Of Course!) Willow Lodge
Now, we bring it home. We may be biased, but it’s safe to say that Willow Lodge offers everything you would want on a family trip at a reasonable cost. Buffet breakfast, comfortable beds, internet connection, air conditioning, access to a sparkling pool, sprawling gardens, an optional shuttle service, and more! There’s something for every member of your family, with a variety of room options ranging from single to sharing. Bookings can be done online or through a quick call, so you don’t have to toil.
