Luxury Family Holidays in the Sun in Asia

Much of Asia is very warm or hot year-round, making it an obvious choice for a luxury holiday in the sun, whatever the time of year. We’ve hand-picked our favourite family accommodation and trips in the region, whether in beach holiday hotspots – Thailand, Goa in India, or Bali or other parts of Indonesia, or in places less familiar as family destinations but with a huge amount to offer, including Sri Lanka, Vietnam, the Philippines and Borneo (divided between Indonesia and Malaysia).

Before booking an Asia holiday with kids, however, think about whether it’s going to be too hot for your family, especially if you’re travelling with very young children or if you’re going to be doing a lot of walking or other activities. And if you do opt to holiday with children in Asia, think about choosing a family-friendly resort with air-conditioned spaces including a crèche/kids’ club plus pools and water-based activities. See our special offers and latest deals with all-inclusive activity holiday specialist Club Med.

As a rule of thumb, family holidays in Asia tend to centre on five-star and/or all-inclusive hotels, although villas are popular too and can be a bargain when compared with those of an equivalent standard elsewhere. Pools and the proximity of good beaches (with diving opportunities for aficionados) are not a bonus but a must if you opt to come here any time of year and are not staying in a city. 

If you do choose this part of the world at this or any other time of year, look at our Asia destination guides if you want to avoid the wet seasons in any given country (though showers tend to be brief if frequent).
