An ideal option for large families looking for privacy or couples looking to enjoy some extra space is the Duplex Beach Villa, a two-story beachfront villa spread across 285sqm. The luxurious accommodation offers a relaxing lounge area on the upper level and one master bedroom and a twin bedroom on the lower story, leading to a large wooden deck equipped with a private pool.

Guests can also take advantage of the FAMiLY by JW™ Little Griffins Kids Club, which promotes the three pillars of ‘activeness, culinary and creativity’ that gives children the chance to have fun whilst also participating in enriching and educational experiences.

A schedule of unique and stimulating activities are available throughout the day aimed to enhance ‘creativity’ in children and spread across various themes such as Under the Sea, Fairytales, Superheroes, Outer Space and more, with activities that include Sand Art, Progressive Pictionary and The Great Big Egg Drop among many others. Children are also invited to join a Superhero Obstacle Course, a Scavenger Hunt and Treasure Opening, or a surprise Little Griffins Challenge that promotes ‘activeness’.

Children who wish to spend the day having fun under the sun and splashing on the water can do so in the safety of the Little Griffins Kids Club swimming pool area. The resort also features a magical pirate ship structure and offers a host of fun water activities such as Water Volleyball and Basketball, Treasure Diving – or for when the sun goes down, a Pirate Ship movie night with popcorn and hot chocolate.

Little gourmands and parents wanting to improve their ‘culinary’ skills, are sure to enjoy the FAMiLY Pizza Making, Smoothie Making and Cupcake Decorating activities which have been designed for the FAMiLY by JW™ experience to bring the whole family together, allowing them to bond and create long lasting memories for a truly unforgettable holiday.

Kids are made to feel special from the moment they arrive on the island up until they bid farewell with special amenities and services that ensure they are well taken care of. Children under 12 eat for free from the kids’ menu at the resort’s many delectable dining venues, and can also dine at the Little Griffins Kids Club while the parents indulge in a variety of services and amenities around the island, from relaxing treatments at Spa by JW to underwater adventures. Little ones who are celebrating their birthday at the resort can do so with themed celebrations that can be arranged at the Little Griffins Kids Club, either privately or in the company of other young guests and babysitting services can also be booked upon request
