The newly opened Movenpick Resort & Spa Boracay in the Philippines is welcoming its first guests with the Unique Family-Friendly Vacation Experiences campaign that provides a wide range of facilities and holiday activities designed for all ages.

Located just 30 minutes from Caticlan Airport, the resort offers a 3,300-square-metre multi-level swimming pool and choice of watersports available right off the beach as well as snorkelling and diving at nearby coral reefs. 

Guests travelling with babies and toddlers can borrow childcare equipment such as baby cots, baby baths and night-lights, and the unique Movenpick Power Bites menu features fun, healthy meals for kids. 

“Family holidays are no longer about simply providing a few things-to-do for youngsters. They are about creating stays where families can really bond by sharing activities. Our mission is to make sure that every member of the family is well catered for and feels special,” says general manager Albert Ocasio.

The kid activity programme focuses on edutainment allowing children to pick up new skills while enjoying themselves. Indoor activities include everything from alphabet and counting games, shell bracelet making and body tracing for two to four year olds, to hair braiding and cupcake baking for five to eight year olds, or kite making and storytelling for kids up to 12. 

Young guests can also choose from a full schedule of outdoor activities designed to take full advantage of the beachfront location. These include sand castle making, scavenger hunts, nature walks and swimming activities, as well as traditional local kid’s games such as ‘Tumbang Preso’, also known as ‘knock down the can’ to give young guests a taste of local life. 

“It’s also important for the adults to enjoy themselves, which is why we offer a whole range of complimentary activities like beach football and volleyball, group paddleboard lessons, morning boot camp and dynamic stretching. Guests can then relax and refresh at our island inspired Sagay Spa,” adds Ocasio. 

Families planning to stay longer can take advantage of the Stay & Save offer with up to 30 per cent off, including breakfast, and a $20 food and beverage voucher when booking online at
