Africa and the Middle East have some of the world’s most extraordinary luxury hotels, and many of them actively welcome families with all sorts of child-friendly facilities and services. Whether you want to stay in the bustling heart of Marrakech, in one of the Red Sea’s many diving resorts, in a beachfront tower in Dubai or in an upmarket game reserve in South Africa – to name just four suggestions in this compelling region – we have it covered.

With a trip to the Middle East or Africa a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many of us, we’ve sifted through the options to bring you our top hand-picked options, representing the very cream of the luxury hotels and resorts in this part of the world. They differ in size and amenities, but you can generally expect to find officially accredited childcare with English-speaking staff, spas, excellent sports facilities, a choice of gourmet restaurants, daily maid service and in-room games consoles. You may also find separate kids’ pools or full-blown waterparks, playgrounds, movie-screening rooms and other top-notch facilities.
